Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners are starting to gain momentum on the recruiting trail and picked up their second commitment of the week in four-star offensive tackle Isaiah Autry out of Itawamba Agricultural.

Autry is the No. 33 offensive tackle in the 2024 class, according to Rivals and is one of the most coveted tackles in the class.

The Fulton, Mississippi native is listed at 6-7, 280 pounds and held 15 Division-I offers, including schools like Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Ole Miss, and Oregon.

 

Ultimately, Autry chose Oklahoma over four other finalists, including Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, and Florida State.

When speaking to 247Sports about the Sooners, what really impressed Autry about the Sooners was Brent Venables and his energy, as well as offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh and his tenure in Norman.

“With Oklahoma I was blown away by Coach Venables and his energy,” Autry said. “At practice he was doing push-ups with the offense and the defense after they messed up, that’s something I had never seen before. I got a chance to sit in the o-line meetings and see some of the things they were doing and how they were being taught and it really peaked my interest. The offensive line coach has been there for 11 years and that’s impressive.”

Autry joins an Oklahoma class that now ranks 38th in the nation, with three other pledges already on board. He joins Casteel (AZ) CB Jeremiah Newcombe, Frisco Emerson (TX) QB Michael Hawkins, and Franklinton (LA) WR Kelly Daniels.

Oklahoma is on the board for several of the nation’s top prospects and rally got going last summer before pushing all the way to the nation’s No. 4 class. Expect more of the same from Brent Venables and staff this summer too.
