Oklahoma has been hot on the recruiting trail this week, with the latest commitment coming from four-star running back Kalib Hicks out of Denton, Texas.
Hicks plays at Ryan High School and has put up quite the stat line there over the last two seasons, totaling 335 carries for 2,299 yards and 25 touchdowns, adding 16 catches for 182 yards and a score.
Listed at 5-11, 195 pounds, Hicks is a versatile athlete that could flourish in Jeff Lebby’s zone scheme and will be a dangerous offensive weapon for the Sooners when he gets to Norman next year.
Hicks announced his decision on Twitter Wednesday night with a short commitment video featuring head coach Brent Venables.
Hicks, the No. 24 running back in the class of 2023, picked the Sooners over 23 other offers, including Alabama, Miami, TCU, and Arkansas.
His commitment gives the Sooners seven pledges for 2023, bringing them from the No. 40 class in the country to No. 27. That number will undoubtedly continue to climb as Venables and his staff are creating quite the buzz in the recruiting world.
The Sooners are set to open up the 2022 against UTEP on September 3 at 2:30 p.m. CT.
