The Oklahoma football program worked quickly by landing Nick Evers’ 4-star commitment when Quinn Ewers moved to arch-rivals Texas.
Brent Venables’ first major signing move as head coach of the Oklahoma team received the four-star quarterback Nick Evers‘ commitment while watching former Ohio State quarterback Quinn Ewers move on to arch-rival Texas.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Evers is the #156 prospect for 2022, the #10 quarterback in his class and the #26 player from Texas. The Texas native Flower Mound was committed to Florida during the hiring process, but with Dan Mullen being fired, this eventually led to Evers switching allegiance to the Power Five. Oklahoma just had a good one.
Not only is this a huge hit for Venables, but it’s proof of why advising Jeff Lebby to leave Ole Miss to become the new Sooners offensive coordinator was such a great idea. Lebby has been Evers’ primary recruiter for Norman since returning to the alma mater’s program last week.
Oklahoma football commits to 4-star midfielder Nick Evers for 2022
Initially, Oklahoma would not sign a quarterback as part of the 2022 class. This is because the Sooners have landed five-star Caleb Williams in Washington, DC in 2021 and have five-star Malachi Nelson committed to them. in Southern California in 2023. That changed when Nelson dropped his commitment to USC to play for the former Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley.
The idea here is that Evers will act as a backup to Williams for the next two years before taking the helm once the five-star signal caller inevitably turns pro. Evers is a talented player from the southwest, but he’s not ready to challenge Williams for the crown of gems in Oklahoma. However, he could be the man Oklahoma relied on in the Red River when they faced off against Ewers and Texas.
Recruiting will take time for the new Oklahoma regime, but landing the Evers is an important first step.
