Oklahoma football adds O-lineman as 10th commitment to 5th-ranked 2025 class


Oklahoma football recruiting has added an offensive lineman and 10th commitment to its growing 2025 class.

Ryan Fodje is a 6-foot, 5-inch, 275-pound offensive tackle from Cypress, Texas, about 37 miles northwest of Houston. He is currently rated as a three-star prospect by both 247Sports and On3.

Fodje attended Brent Venables' Elite Camp last summer and received a scholarship offer from the Sooners in August. That was his first college offer. Since then, however, the promising offensive lineman has been gaining steam and currently holds as many as 17 offers. Among those programs who have shown high interest in Fodje are USC, Texas, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Nebraska and Missouri.

He is considered a top-40 offensive line talent and impressed OU offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh when he was on the Norman campus last summer. 247Sports ranks Fodje as the No. 34 offensive tackle in the 2025 class and the No. 401 player overall.

As a junior at Bridgeland High School, Fodje was a First-Team All-District selection at right tackle and helped lead his team to the district playoffs last season.

Fodje is the second commitment from an offensive lineman in the Sooners' 2025 class. He joins Owen Hollenbeck, another three-star prospect, from Melissa, Texas.

Oklahoma also has its eyes on Jonte Newman, an offensive tackle high school teammate of Fodje's, who has included Oklahoma in his top-eight schools. That announcement came in January.

The Oklahoma 2025 recruiting class is currently ranked 5th by both 247Sports and Rivals and has crystal-ball predictions for severl other elite 2025 prospects.
