The tradition of West Coast DBs continues for Oklahoma, but this time in the Northern section. The good guys land a commitment from 2023 four-star cornerback Jasiah Wagoner. Wagoner chose the Sooners over Cal, Texas, and Oregon. The Ducks were his first offer prior to his sophomore season.
A 5’11, 170 pounder from Spanaway, Washington, Wagoner is the first commit under new Cornerbacks coach Jay Valai, and certainly won’t be the last in this class for him. Our partners at Rivals rank him as the No. 36 CB in the country, and the No. 3 player in the state of Washington. He is the 17th commitment of the Sooners 2023 class.
Wagoner was offered by the Sooners in May, took 2 visits in the Spring, and also performed at Brent Venables’s Elite Camps over the Summer. Watching his tape, Wagoner is a guy who sits on an island. He won’t knock your socks off physically, but he’s very fundamentally sound and makes plays on the ball. Wagoner doesn’t just specialize on defense, as he also got burn at running back, wide receiver, and returner for his Lake High squad.
“Coach Venables’s style of coaching, his vision, and his coaching staff will take Oklahoma to the top. I believe that.”, Wagoner said in an interview with On3’s Chad Simmons. Wagoner spoke highly of Brent Venables and the culture at Oklahoma, along with his relationships with Venables, Jay Valai, and Xavier Brewer.
The Sooners now have the No. 9 recruiting class in 2023 (Rivals.com). They now await the Thursday decision of four-star DL Derrick LeBlanc.
