Oklahoma high school football recruiting: Del City linebacker Rejhan Tatum commits to Boise State

Rejhan Tatum will have to get used to playing on blue turf.

The Del City senior linebacker announced Sunday on Twitter his commitment to Boise State.

Along with the Broncos, Tatum’s top offers were from Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

Tatum told The Oklahoman he is looking forward to playing out of state and has high expectations. 

“I felt like they’re a good winning program, and they’re probably going to put me in the next level,” he said. 

Tatum, who was No. 14 on The Oklahoman’s preseason Super 30 rankings of the state’s top 2021 recruits, led Del City with 151 tackles last season. 

He is a three-star prospect and the nation’s No. 27-ranked inside linebacker in the 2021 class, according to 247Sports.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder began his high school career at Putnam City and transferred after a winless sophomore season.

His older brother, Ron Tatum III, is a defensive lineman at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. The University of Texas at San Antonio commit was No. 3 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 list for 2018 recruits. He played at OU for one year.

Boise State, which finished 12-2 last year and competes in the Mountain West Conference, will not have a season this fall. The Broncos play their home games at Albertsons Stadium, which is known for its iconic blue field.
