Oklahoma-Oklahoma football-Oklahoma Sooners-Chris Steele-official visit

One of the nation’s top 2019 talents has his eyes on Norman, Okla.

Chris Steele, a 5-star cornerback out of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, is one of Lincoln Riley and the Sooners top targets this cycle and they’ll soon get to host him, as Steele has announced his official visit to Oklahoma.

Steele’s official visit is scheduled for April 14.

Ranked as the nation’s No. 28 player and the No. 3 cornerback, per the 247Sports Composite, Steele holds 40 total offers to date with programs such as USC, Texas, Alabama, Michigan and Notre Dame in the mix, among others.

Not surprisingly, the Sooners, which offered on May 24, will have their hands full in hopes of hauling in the elite defensive back and bolstering what’s currently the nation’s No. 5 class behind five early pledges.

Riley and his staff will have an opportunity to take a significant step towards that goal on April 14.

USC currently stands as the frontrunner for the 6-foot-1, 188-pound prospect, holding eight of his 10 Crystal Ball projections with the other two favoring Texas.
