The Oklahoma Sooners secured their fifth verbal commitment for their 2015 class in the form of four-star cornerback PJ Mbanasor (Pflugerville, Texas. Hendrickson) who is now the highest ranked recruit on the board.
The 6-1, 182-pound cornerback is the nation’s No. 133 overall player, the No. 17 cornerback and the No. 18 ranked recruit in the talent-rich state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
At the end of May, Mbanasor, who had previously been committed to TCU, narrowed his options down to a final seven that included Nebraska, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida, LSU and Oklahoma.
“Oklahoma puts out production, and it is production and more production,” Mbanasor tells Joey Helmer of 247Sports. “When I say production, I am talking about overall team production. That is offense, special teams, defense, coaching staff, and they win games. They are the most dominant team in the Big 12 and winning is normal there. I guess several schools can say that, but maybe not like Oklahoma.
“I love teams that win. I just want to be the best and have an opportunity to win games, and that is a big thing that I live for.”
Based on the seven schools who were in his group of finalists, it’s clear to see that a winning reputation and sending players to the NFL is important to him. Mbanasor received his offer from the Sooners on Feb. 3, 2014, one week after he committed to TCU.
Oklahoma moves up to the No. 39 ranked class and the No. 7 class in the Big 12 conference with the addition of the lengthy cornerback.
