Oklahoma received a verbal commitment on Sunday from an area high school star in the 2023 recruiting class.
Chapman McKown, a running back and return man at Norman North, announced his commitment via Twitter on Sunday.
McKown is not ranked by 247Sports, and will be a preferred walk-on at Oklahoma, after picking the Sooners over scholarship offers from Air Force, Navy and Army.
You might suspect McKown was a life-long Sooners fan, but he told AllSooners that was not the case, saying, “I grew up an Oklahoma State fan I wasn’t really big time on the Sooners. I never would’ve pictured myself playing here. But Coach (Brent) Venables got the job in December and he called me — and I’ve been a fan ever since.”
He’s a stout 5’6”, 165 pounds, and rushed for over 1,300 yards his junior season.
