Robyn Morris asks, Can Oklahoma get Theo Wease, Arjei Henderson and Garrett Wilson to go along with Trejan Bridges?

That would be the dream the scenario for a number of reasons. Just to start, that would give Oklahoma the Nos. 5 (Wease), 8 (Henderson), 9 Bridges and 14 (Wilson) receivers in the 247Sports composite rankings.

Let’s not forget the importance of Austin Stogner, who is the No. 2 tight end in the 2019 class.

That would easily go down as the best receiver haul in Sooners history. You’d probably have to go back to the Barry Switzer era to a crop of running backs he signed to see that much talent come in at one time to a certain skill position.

I talked to Bridges, who committed to Oklahoma in September, at Hebron High School in Carrollton, Texas on Tuesday. He has taken on that role as one of the leaders in the class. That is important. The receiver crop in Texas in the 2019 class is off the charts. All four are from Texas. Wease is at Allen, Henderson is from Richmond and Wilson is from Austin.

But can Oklahoma land all four of them? I think it’s an underdog to happen. That’s a lot of dominoes to fall into place. Bridges’ commitment is solid. I think Wease is the most likely to pick the Sooners among the uncommitted trio. I would put Henderson as the second most likely. Wilson is third. I think the Sooners trail Texas and Ohio State for his commitment, but the Sooners are gaining ground.

If it happens, great. But no matter what, it looks like Oklahoma is positioned to pick up great receivers in this class.
