OU football: Four-star OLB Clayton Smith commits to Sooners
NORMAN — A big day of recruiting got even bigger Friday for OU.
A few hours after securing a commitment from five-star wide receiver Mario Williams, the Sooners added a big defensive piece when four-star 2021 outside linebacker Clayton Smith committed.
The Texarkana, Texas, product announced his decision on Twitter.
Smith chose the Sooners from a group of finalists that also included LSU, Texas, Oregon, Florida State and Kentucky.
Smith is the second linebacker commit OU has received this month, joining Florida product Danny Stutsman.
The 6-foot-4, 220 pound Smith is the No. 14 outside linebacker in the 2021 class according to Rivals and is No. 211 nationally among all players in the class.
