Brey Walker jumped on board with Oklahoma’s 2018 class before anyone, claiming the offer after his sophomore season Westmoore (Okla.) High School.
Two years later, the mammoth tackle is the highest-ranked player to come out of the Sooner State and one of the cornerstones in the Sooners class. He made it official by signing with Oklahoma on Wednesday morning.

Where he fits at Oklahoma: Walker already has the size and strength to play at a high level. There’s so much upside with him that the only question is how does he contribute. The Sooners figure to lose current left tackle Orlando Brown to the 2018 NFL Draft. The thought going into the 2018 season is right tackle Bobby Brown will move into that spot. Walker may not start right away, but there’s a good chance he’ll factor into the rotation at tackle next season. When a player of his talent comes along, you have to figure a redshirt season is unlikely.
