Oklahoma remains busy on the recruiting trail with another major 2023 offer delivered late Tuesday night.
After offering a 4-star linebacker Tausili Akana earlier today, the Sooners officially made it to the highly regarded 5-star defensive lineman Jayden wayne of Lincoln High School in Tacoma, WA.
As evidenced by his 5-star status, Wayne is an elite prospect. He is currently ranked No. 4 defensive lineman and No. 13 overall player in the recruiting class of 2023 by the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
It is heavily pursued by many programs, Oklahoma being its 29th FBS offering. He currently holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State, Texas, Texas A&M and USC, among others.
At 6-5, 245 pounds, Wayne is an offensive lineman’s nightmare with his power and athleticism. Although he’s a defensive lineman at the next level, he’s so good as an athlete he’s able to line up and play a little tight at Lincoln High School. One of those guys that you would just classify as a freak of the wild.
It won’t be easy for the Sooners to land Wayne given his list of offers. But if they did, he seems like a must-see player at the college level.
