While all is fair in Big 12 football, this one certainly stings for Red Raiders fans. The Oklahoma Sooners added a big-time playmaker to their 2024 class after flipping four-star wide receiver Ivan Carreon from Texas Tech.
Carreon previously committed to Joey McGuire and the Red Raiders back in December of 2022, but after touring both Purdue and Oklahoma earlier in June, the junior prospect elected to head to team up with Brent Venables in Norman.
The 6-foot-6 Texas product is listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently sits just outside of the top 200 recruits in the nation. He checks in as the 35th-ranked prospect at the wide receiver position and is the 44th-ranked prospect in the state of Texas.
While the Sooners are entering their final season of Big 12 football, Carreon’s first taste of college action will come after Oklahoma’s official move to the SEC. Carreon elected to decommit from Joey McGuire and Texas Tech, a team that many believe will be contending for a Big 12 Championship in the next few years to join the Sooners who should find themselves in a similar position in 2023, despite finishing off the previous season with a record of 6-7.
Carreon gets a chance to see his future team take the field on September 2nd against Arkansas State in what could start off a special final season for OU.
