Sooners flip Oklahoma State commit Brynden Walker

The Cowboys lose a 2020 pledge to their in-state rivals

Oklahoma State’s 2020 recruiting class dropped from 13 commits to 12 on Sunday with the news that in-state linebacker Brynden Walker was flipping his commitment from the Cowboys to Oklahoma.

Walker made the announcement on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

Walker committed to Oklahoma State back on March 4th over Texas, Kansas State, Iowa State and Memphis. But when the Sooners made an offer back on April 19th, they quickly began a heavy recruitment campaign to flip the Bishop McGuiness OLB from orange to red. That included two unofficial visits. On Sunday, it officially worked.

With the loss of Walker, Oklahoma State has just two linebacker prospects committed for 2020; three-star ILBs Cole Thompson of Norman and Jeff Roberson of Choctaw. I would expect the Cowboys to try and land two more linebackers in the class.

A few guys to keep an eye on would be three-star OLB Catrell Wallace of Bryant, Arkansas and three-star OLB Jabar Triplett out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
