NORMAN — Oklahoma scored a recruiting victory over in-state rival Oklahoma State last week. This time, the Sooners defeated Red River rival Texas.

Four-star 2020 safety Bryson Washington created sparks by picking OU over the Longhorns on Thursday. His list was down to two schools. 

Days earlier the Sooners were able to flip Oklahoma City 2020 linebacker Brynden Walker from OSU. 

Washington, a 6-foot-3, 192-pound C.E. King (Houston) High School product, is Rivals.com’s No. 131-ranked overall recruit and the No. 8 safety. He’s ranked the 20th best prospect in the state of Texas, holding other offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia and Florida on a long list of suitors.

He visited Norman on April 12, the weekend of OU’s Red-White scrimmage.

Washington is the Sooners’ 14th commitment from 2020 and the third four-star defensive prospect in the group.
