Oklahoma has received five verbal commitments in as many days.
Lincoln Riley is reconnecting with a pipeline that has been good to Oklahoma in the past, as the Sooners now have another commitment from Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas. Of course, probably the most impressive figure to play for the Sooners from Bishop Gorman is Demarco Murray, but now Lincoln Riley and Bill Bedenbaugh have secured the commitment of Jake Taylor, another high-profile offensive lineman. Taylor is nationally respected and committed to the Oklahoma Sooners over other institutions such as Alabama, Notre Dame, USC and several others.

Taylor stands tall at a frame of 6’6, 290lbs with a commitment to play in the HS All-American Bowl. The talented athlete will play tackle and despite being already massive, still has plenty of room to fill out and lose bad weight. He has very long arms, is a punishing force in the run game, and has quick enough feet to secure the edge. It’s no shock that he’s very well coached and technically polished, coming from one of the more premier private schools in the country.
Taylor is now the Sooners’ 13th commit of the 2022 recruiting cycle and is the second offensive lineman that Bedenbaugh has been able to secure since the holiday weekend. Currently, Jake Taylor is rated as the No. 286 overall player in the country, the No. 27 offensive tackle, and the No. 8 player in the state of Nevada according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
