Oklahoma football: Three-star Texas athlete commits to OU for 2022

Once headed to Kansas, then possibly to Missouri, three-star athlete Xavion Brice is now committed to the Oklahoma football program.

Brice, is one of several Kansas commitments who have decommitted from that program after the dismissal of former Jayhawk head coach Les Miles and the hiring of Lance Leipold. Brice, who hails from Arlington, Texas, announced his decommitment on June 13.

Kansas was recruiting the 6-foot, 2-inch, 175-pound Brice as a wide receiver. Missouri reportedly was looking at him as a defensive back.

Besides Kansas and Missouri, Brice had previous offers from Baylor, Texas, SMU, Tulane, Tulsa and Hawaii.

Last month, the Sooners had a couple of wide receiver decommitments of their own. Both were four-star prospects, according to Rivals. Jordan Hudson has committed to SMU and Talyn Shettron has elected to join his brother at Oklahoma State.

Brice caught 92 passes for 469 yards and three touchdowns his junior season at Seguin High School in Arlington, Kansas, , where he played quarterback, wide receiver and at the back end of the defense.

With size and 4.47 speed in the 40-yard dash, Oklahoma defensive coordinator likes his potential fit in the OU secondary, where the Sooners are seeking to upgrade the position with more size along with speed and mobility.

Brice becomes the 11th commitment in OU’s 2022 recruiting class, which is currently ranked eighth by both Rivals and the 247Sports Class Rankings. He is also the third player to verbally commit to the Sooners in the past two days.

Of the Sooners’ 11 2022 commitments, five are from Texas and three from the Sooner State.
