Oklahoma football: OU makes final cut for another 4-star OT

If you’re Oklahoma football assistant coach and co-offensive coordinator Bill Bedenbaugh, you can never have enough quality offensive lineman on your roster.

The Sooners have had the good fortune of having one of the best offensive lines in college football for most of the eight years he has resided in Norman. In 2018, the Oklahoma was awarded the Joe Moore Award as the best offensive line in college football, and the Sooners were a semifinalist for the same honor in 2019.

The 2022 Oklahoma recruiting class includes two four-star O-line commitments: Jake Taylor, out of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, and Jacob Sexton, out of nearby Edmond, Oklahoma. And Bedenbaugh has another top-rated offensive lineman in his sights that he hopes to add to the 2022 Sooner class.

Malik Agbo, who hails from the Far Northwest and the Seattle area, has named Oklahoma among the five top choices he is considering as the place he wants to play college football. The four-star offensive-line prospect’s finalists are LSU, Miami (Florida), Arizona State and the Sooners.

Interestingly, none of the schools are from the state of Washington and only one is from the Pac-12.

Listed at 6 feet, 5 inches and 320 pounds, Agbo is rated as the No. 25 offensive tackle in the country by 247Sports, Agbo was one of the many top Sooner targets who was in attendance at OU’s ChampU BBQ recruiting event in June. Taylor and Sexton were also there.

Bedenbaugh, who was named one of Rivals.com’s top-25 college recruiters in 2017, ’18 and ’19 and was a semifinalist in 2018 for the Broyles Award, recognizing the nation’s top assistant coach, has an excellent track record keeping the OU pipeline flowing with top O-line talent.

Sooner faithful are hopeful that influence, as well as Oklahoma’s long-standing record of success, will pay off in landing
