Oklahoma Football: 2022 Recruiting Class Rundown

NCAA Football: Oklahoma Head Coach-Brent Venables Airport Arrival

Gentry Williams and Gavin Sawchuck lead a class chock full of four-star recruits signed by the Oklahoma Sooners for the 2022 football recruiting class.

Gentry Williams, a cornerback out of Booker T. Washington in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the top player in the state and the Sooners’ top-rated signee in the 2022 class. Williams is listed by 247Sports as the 11th best corner in the 2022 class and the 92nd overall player.

Sawchuck, a running back out of Valor Christian in Littleton, Colorado, was the Sooners’ second-highest-rated signee, as rated him as the No. 97 player in the country and the No. 7 running back.

While the Sooners lost a pair of five-star recruits late in the process after its coaching change, the Sooners did manage to reel in 16 four-star players, including Flower Mound, Texas, quarterback Nick Evers, who was committed to Florida until the Gators had a coaching change.

Oklahoma also landed a whopping 10 transfers via the portal, with UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel and UNC cornerback Trey Morrison highlighting the list.


The list of other four-star players includes linebacker Kobie McKinzie, wide receiver Jayden Gibson, tackles Jake Taylor and Jacob Sexton, running back Javontae Barnes, athlete Jaren Kanak, wide receiver Nicholas Anderson, linebacker Kip Lewis, safety Robert Spears-Jennings, cornerback Jayden Rowe, tight end Kaden Helms, Edge R Mason Thomas, and defensive lineman Gracen Halton.

The Sooners finished the 2021 season with an 11-2 record after defeating Oregon 47-32 in the Alamo Bowl. Lincoln Riley left the program after the regular season and took the head-coaching job at USC. The Sooners replaced Riley with Brent Venables.
