Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners added a new name to the Class of 2025 with the addition of three-star safety Marcus Wimberly.

Wimberly chose Oklahoma over 14 different programs, including Michigan, Tennessee, Utah, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Oregon, and more.


Coming out of Bauxite High School in the Class of 2025, Wimberly is listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index and the nation’s 507th-ranked prospect. He also checks in as the 42nd-ranked player at his position and the fifth-ranked player in the state of Arkansas.

“What excites me most is just seeing how good God is and being able to see that my hard work is starting to pay off,” Wimberly previously told Sooners Illustrated’s Collin Kennedy. “Oklahoma has the best culture I’ve been around. It’s a great family feel up there. Coach Hall is going to develop you into an NFL-caliber safety. They’ve got a great culture, a great coaching staff, and a great program up there. A lot of schools expect you to go in there and not get developed, but Oklahoma will develop you into a great player and man.”

With his commitment, Wimberly became the 11th addition in the Class of 2025, joining a cast of three four-stars and seven other three-star prospects. Wimberly and the rest of the future Sooners will have a chance to watch their future team take the field next on Saturday, August 31st, against Temple.
