Oklahoma Sooners recruiting: Elite offensive lineman considering 2015 commitment

With the 2014 Signing Day very successful for Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Sooners recruiting forces are hitting the road to start to look at future classes. According to the Crimson and Cream Machine on Feb. 13, elite offensive lineman Jalin Barnett from Lawton is a top target.

The Sooners biggest focus for the Class of 2015 is the offensive line, as they will lose some major stars to graduation after the 2014 season. Barnett has the advantage of bring an Oklahoma high school football star, but he is also a big time football recruit that OU will have to work for.

At 6-4, 310 lbs, Jalin Barnett has offers on the table by Alabama, Auburn, Stanford, UCLA and Oklahoma State. If Deondre Clark proved anything at the 2014 Signing Day, it is that being an Oklahoma athlete doesn't mean that an elite athlete will stay in the state. Clark chose to commit to LSU instead.

Oklahoma welcomed Jalin Barnett to Oklahoma's junior day on Feb. 1 along with many other offensive line recruits. If they can bring in Barnett, that could help anchor what the Sooners' hopes to be a successful 2015 Signing Day class.

Rivals considers Barnett to be a four-star recruit, the top ranked offensive guard in the 2015 college football recruiting class and the 32nd best recruit nationally. He has been recruited by OU coach Bill Bedenbaugh and is considered a solid lock to eventually commit to the Oklahoma Sooners, possibly before he even starts his senior year of high school.
