Oklahoma Football: OU loses out on Jordan Renaud who commits to Bama – Sooners Wire

Well, you can’t win them all. However, after the summer the Oklahoma Sooners had on the recruiting trail, it felt like they’d never lose another recruiting battle.
Under Brent Venables, Oklahoma has won its fair share against Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and Texas. But you’re bound to lose a few when you go head-to-head against some of the best on the recruiting trail. And that’s what happened on Monday morning: 2023 four-star defensive tackle Jordan Renaud committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide.
It appeared Renaud had been leaning toward the Oklahoma Sooners based on recruiting projections from 247Sports in July. However, in the last week, Alabama picked up steam, earning a crystal ball projection from 247Sports director of national recruiting Steve Wiltfong.
“I feel that Alabama has always been a perennial powerhouse,” Renaud shared with On3 Sports. “As far as development goes, they have some of the best development in the country. Me and coach Roach have a great relationship. When I went on my visit there, it was very eye-opening to what Alabama really is and what they do for their players.”
Despite the loss to the Crimson Tide, the Sooners are still looking great along the defensive line. The Sooners have blue-chip prospects Adepoju Adebawore, Colton Vasek and Derrick LeBlanc pledged, and the Sooners are the favorite for five-star defensive lineman David Hicks.
Now the Sooners turn their full attention to four-star wide receiver/tight end Malachi Coleman, another player trending in the Sooners’ direction.
