Several highly-touted quarterbacks are making commitments soon and four-star Michael Hawkins is down to Oklahoma football and TCU in the 2024 class.
We have talked about how things are starting to pick up with quarterback recruiting in the 2024 college football recruiting class.
Jadyn Davis and Jake Merklinger are both expected to make decisions this week. Davis is the fourth-ranked quarterback in the 2024 class. He’s ranked 28th overall and he’s set to decide on Friday, while Merklinger is a highly-ranked four-star but is trending to Tennessee.
On top of that, Air Noland is another top-100 quarterback that is set to make a decision on April 8th after recently visiting Texas A&M and taking a trip to Ohio State this weekend. Miami is also right there in the mix and is the favorite right now according to the On3 prediction machine.
Another team that hasn’t struggled to recruit quarterbacks is Oklahoma football. The Sooners actually just the commitment of a talented signal-caller in 2025 in Kevin Sperry who is ranked 177th according to the On3 Industry rankings.
Now, it’s looking like Oklahoma football could be landing another four-star quarterback commitment in the next couple of weeks as Michael Hawkins, a talented 2024 quarterback is expected to also announce on April 8th according to Sam Spiegelman.
Hawkins is ranked 311th overall according to the 247 sports composite rankings and his recruitment is down to Oklahoma football and TCU, the defending Big 12 champions.
The Sooners have the only crystal ball projection from 247 sports and they are also the heavy favorite according to the On3 prediction machine which gives Oklahoma a 92-percent chance to win his commitment and it would add another talented arm to a room that already includes 2023 five-star quarterback Jackson Arnold and Sperry down the road.
Brent Venables first season didn’t go as expected in terms of wins and losses, but if he can get the defense playing at a high level again, this program could be dangerous, especially with all the talented quarterback recruits in the pipeline.
