25 for 25 – November Edition

November update to the "25 for '25" hot board for OU's targets for the class of 2025. Commits, leads, top 10's, and more interesting prospects.

It is early to do any kind of real class prediction for 2025, but 2025 recruiting is moving along at a fast pace.

So here’s 25 (actually 8 verbals + 17 names) prospects from the class of 2025 that appear to be really considering OU.

I’ll update this every month until the 2024 class gets their first signing day in December, then in January I’ll take a hack at the first 2025 Prediction.

Oklahoma Class of 2025 Commitments

OU “Leads” or in Top Four/Five (17)

Michael Fasusi – Offensive Tackle

Player Info: 6-5, 285 | Lewisville (Lewisville, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9923, 14 OVR, 2 OT | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Utah

Notes: The Lewisville OT has been to Norman several times. OU has a connection with his current class of 2024 teammate Jaydan Hardy. The foundation has been built for OU to land Fasusi. This is trending to be the biggest OU v UT recruiting battle in a long time.

Jonah Williams – Safety/Linebacker

Player Info: 6-3, 203 | Ball (Galveston, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9917, 16 OVR, 2 LB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State, Oregon, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC

Notes: This five star talent has been to Norman a number of times and seems to be really connected to the OU coaching staff.

Andrew T Marsh – Wide Receiver

Player Info: 6-1, 173 | Katy Jordan (Fulshear, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9818, 30 OVR, 6 WR | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC

Notes: Could he commit before Mozee?? Emmett Jones is a beast in WR recruiting for 2025.

Ty Haywood – Offensive Tackle

Player Info: 6-6, 270 | Ryan (Denton, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9740, 51 OVR, 7 OT | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, Oregon, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, USC

Notes: The 3rd OT from the North Dallas metro area. OU is also heavily involved with Haywood.

CJ Nickson – EDGE

Player Info: 6-5, 220 | Weatherford (Weatherford, OK)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9646, 76 OVR, 11 EDGE | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Auburn, Notre Dame, TCU, Tennessee, Wisconsin

Notes: Might be the best athlete/prospect in Oklahoma for 2025. Tight end? Or defensive end? OU continues to build a lead. Right now, no real obvious challenger has emerged yet. He looks huge in junior film, easy to project him as a 6-5, 250+ DE or TE.

Nate Roberts – Tight End

Player Info: 6-4, 235 | Washington (Washington, OK)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9594, 92 OVR, 2 TE | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Iowa, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Utah, Wisconsin

Notes: OU has firmly placed themselves into Roberts top list. He’s making visits to other schools this fall after having made a quick and early verbal to ND. Connecting with 2025 QB commit Kevin Sperry. After his junior year, an OU verbal seems very possible.

Isaiah Mozee – Wide Receiver

Player Info: 6-1, 185 | Lee’s Summit North (Lee’s Summit, MO)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9544, 102 OVR, 16 WR | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Wisconsin

Notes: The OU legacy is having a great junior year. OU is battling Oregon. The major question is will OU still have a spot when he decides.

Cobey Sellers – Cornerback

Player Info: 6-0, 165 | Shadow Creek (Pearland, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9394, 147 OVR, 20 CB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, Texas A&M, USC, Washington

Notes: Houston area CB that seems to really like OU. Visited this fall, and there’s a forecast for OU from at least one site. 

Trystan Haynes – Defensive Back

Player Info: 6-2, 175 | Carl Albert (Midwest City, OK)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9503, 116 OVR, 15 CB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Arkansas, Miami, Missouri, Nebraska, TCU, Texas A&M

Notes: Having a great junior year so far part of that talented Carl Albert roster. Teammate of Kevin Sperry, Marcus James, and a few other 2025 targets.

Max Granville – EDGE

Player Info: 6-2, 215 | Fort Bend Christian (Sugar Land, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9482, 122 OVR, 16 LB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Duke, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Wisconsin

Notes: Top Edge rusher from Texas. Miguel Chavis has been at his games this fall. Explosive pass rusher. Can OU take Shieldnight, Woods, and Granville? Also visited for the WVU game.

Troy Blaylock – Running Back

Player Info: 5-10, 175 | Atascocita (Humble, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9432, 135 OVR, 11 RB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Colorado, Duke, Florida State, Georgia, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Wisconsin

Notes: Is it Deondrae Riden (below) or Blaylock? Or Is it another RB?

Deondrae Riden – Running Back

Player Info: 5-10, 195 | DeSoto (DeSoto, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9324, 171 OVR, 17 RB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Utah, Wisconsin

Notes: One of the Top RB targets. It’s not clear who is the top target among several players.

Jayden Woods – EDGE

Player Info: 6-3, 235 | Mill Valley (Shawnee, KS)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9245, 200 OVR, 17 EDGE | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Iowa, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, USC

Notes: The Kansas edge rusher is a big-time target for OU. Getting more offers and attention.

DaSaahn Brame – Tight End

Player Info: 6-6, 235 | Derby (Derby, KS)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9228, 207 OVR, 9 TE | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Missouri, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Wisconsin

Notes: OU’s next TE target after Roberts. Will be interesting to see if OU takes two big TEs along with Trynae Washington. 

Gus Cordova – Defensive Line

Player Info: 6-4, 250 | Lake Travis (Austin, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 90, 210 OVR, 19 DL (On3) | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Arizona, Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Wisconsin

Notes: OU legacy and brother of 2024 QB commit Michael Hawkins. This seems like another Eli Bowen situation.

Christian Thatcher – Linebacker

Player Info: 6-2, 195 | Arbor View (Las Vegas, NV)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9162, 231 OVR, 27 LB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Louisville, Michigan State, Missouri, Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Utah

Notes: Was on campus earlier this season for the SMU game. At a radio remote on his visit, Thatcher talked about how much he loves OU and is considering committing. Great frame, could easily be a top 100 type LB based on junior film. His brother might be a top QB for 2027, Thaddeus Thatcher.

Maliek Hawkins – Cornerback

Player Info: 6-1, 175 | Frisco Emerson (McKinney, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5.7, 37 CB (Rivals) | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Arkansas, Texas

Notes: OU legacy and brother of 2024 QB commit Michael Hawkins. This seems like another Eli Bowen situation.


Five More Top Targets (OU Could Be a Factor)

Riley Pettijohn – Linebacker

Player Info: 6-2, 205 | McKinney (McKinney, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9808, 34 OVR, 5 LB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Auburn, Duke, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC

Notes: Potential five star LB in Texas. OU will definitely work to get involved here. Interestingly, no reported Texas offer yet.

Lamont Rogers – Offensive Tackle

Player Info: 6-6, 305 | Horn (Mesquite, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9802, 36 OVR, 5 OT | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Penn State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC

Notes: Another North Dallas metro area elite OT. Visited OU already this fall, OU has offered his 2026 teammates as well.

Douglas Utu – Offensive Tackle

Player Info: 6-5, 270 | Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas, NV)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9706, 56 OVR, 8 OT | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington

Notes: Visited OU already. Expect OU to be involved as long as he’s still talking to OU.

Isaiah Campbell – Defensive Line

Player Info: 6-3, 260 | Southern (Durham, NC)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9610, 87 OVR, 8 DL | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Penn State, Tennessee, USC

Notes: North Carolina DT has a number of big time offers. According to Brandon Drumm on their YouTube pod, coach Miguel Chavis is connected heavily with the coaching staff.

Andrew Babalola – Offensive Tackle

Player Info: 6-6, 275 | Blue Valley Northwest (Overland Park, KS)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9539, 106 OVR, 12 OT | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Auburn, Duke, Florida, Kansas State, Miami, Michigan, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin

Notes: New offer at OT from Kansas. A Top 50 kid at on3.com. Kansas has been very kind to OU lately.


BONUS – Interesting Offers and Targets with OU Status Uncertain

Nathaniel Owusu-Boateng – Linebacker

Player Info: 6-2, 205 | IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9755, 47 OVR, 3 LB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Texas A&M, USC, Wisconsin

Notes:  Star defender at IMG would be a great fit at WILL or Cheetah in the OU defense. Fringe five-star player OU trying to leverage recent defensive success at IMG.

Jadon Perlotte – Linebacker (UGA Commit)

Player Info: 6-3, 200 | Buford (Buford, GA)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9792, 39 OVR, 7 LB | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia (Committed), LSU, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, USC

Notes:  Top 100 LB committed to UGA but definitely looking around. Roof has close connections to the Buford coaching staff. OU “reoffered” recently, maybe building off some LB momentum with the 2023 success of Danny Stutsman.

Malcolm Simpson – Defensive Line

Player Info: 6-3, 235 | Ball (Galveston, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9674, 67 OVR, 6 DL | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Baylor, Houston, Kansas, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas Tech, USC (all recent)

Notes: Galveston Ball teammate of Jonah Williams. His sophomore year film is very good. Looks and plays bigger than listed. Very athletic, could be trending rankings wise in the same manner as Joseph Jonah-Ajonye did this cycle.

Linkon Cure – Tight End

Player Info: 6-6, 215 | Goodland (Goodland, KS)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.9381, 151 OVR, 4 TE | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Auburn, Florida, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Michigan, Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Wisconsin

Notes: Recent OU offer at TE. Another top 200 player from Kansas it appears. Has a real Mark Andrews feel to his film. Just visited Oregon.

Dilan Battle – Defensive Line

Player Info: 6-2, 315 | Mansfield Timberview (Arlington, TX)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 90, 289 OVR, 29 DL (On3) | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, USC

Notes: Another Dallas area lineman instead on the defensive side. Big physical kid whose junior year early film is excellent. Great run stuffer but is flashing some inside pass rush. Excellent agility for a big man. Huge offers for someone not ranked by all services yet, and a three-star by the others.

CJ Jimcoily – Safety

Player Info: 6-2, 190 | Lipscomb Academy (Nashville, TN)

Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 0.8991, 306 OVR, 21 S | 247 Profile

Notable Offers: Arkansas, Florida, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Missouri, UNC, Ole Miss, Purdue, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Wisconsin

Notes:  Visited for the WVU game. From the same HS as Sooner CB Woodi Washington. Big frame DB who would look great at safety for OU.
