Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners received some bad news on Monday morning after learning that three-star wide receiver Dozie Ezukanma would be de-committing from Oklahoma, and reopening his recruitment.
The Texas native committed to the Sooners back in June and chose Oklahoma over offers from 15 different schools including Arizona, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, TCU, Texas Tech, and more.
Ezukanma is listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently ranks as the nation’s 658th-ranked prospect. He also checks in as the 87th-ranked receiver in the Class of 2024 as well as the 108th-ranked player in the state of Texas.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect is the younger brother of Erik Ezukanma, a current member of the Miami Dolphins receiver room, who played college ball with the Texas Tech Red Raiders from 2017-2021. While Joey McGuire and the Red Raiders are expected to be a player in Ezukanma’s second round of recruitment, Arkansas, Kansas State, Texas A&M, and Wisconsin all heavily pursued the Timber Creek (TX) prospect prior to his June commitment.
Following the loss of Ezukanma, Oklahoma is down to 27 commits, four of which play wide receiver. OU earned commitments from the likes of four-star wideouts Zion Kearney, Ivan Carreon, and Zion Ragins, as well as three-star receiver KJ Daniels.
