The Sooners start their 2023 recruiting off with a bang in the form of a commitment from a talented running back.
The Oklahoma Sooners have started a big recruiting weekend with a bang, as four-star 2023 ATH Treyaun Webb has announced his commitment. Webb, a standout at Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Fla., is the first name on the board for the class of 2023 as Lincoln Riley continues to make in-roads to different regions in the USA — and particularly Florida as of late. Webb has chosen Oklahoma over other programs such as Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia and a plethora of others.

Webb is a talented defensive back, he but is being recruited by Demarco Murray and many others as a running back. Standing at a frame of 6’0” and 188 pounds, he is elite running off-tackle and bouncing to the outside. He is also quite good at absorbing contact, making his yards-after-contact numbers look attractive, especially when he’s always falling forward. Interestingly enough, some analysts have compared Webb to another talented Sooners running back — Kennedy Brooks. As of now, he doesn’t always have the breakaway speed to separate himself, but that’s not to say he doesn’t have incredible burst out of the backfield.
Webb is Oklahoma’s first commitment for the 2023 recruiting class cycle. According to 247Sports Composite Rankings, he is the No. 4 athlete in the country, the No. 9 overall player from the state of Florida, and the No. 46 player overall. Murray has been able to secure Raleek Brown and Gavin Sawchuk in the 2022 class, and he’s only elevating the talent level with the addition of Webb in 2023. It is definitely a huge pickup for Lincoln Riley and the Sooners, but the weekend has just begun.
