It looks like the University of Oklahoma is going to be okay after losing Lincoln Riley to USC. Since then they have hired Brent Venables as head coach, and now they have just landed the first post-Riley quarterback. After recently decommitting from the University of Florida Nick Evers has announced his commitment to the Oklahoma Sooners.
Nearly a week ago we saw Nick Evers announce his decommitment from the Florida Gators. This came after meeting with new head coach Billy Napier and feeling like it would be best to find a new home. Evers said he believes Napier is a good coach, but didn’t feel the same connection he had with Coach Mullen when he originally committed.
This is the Sooners 14th commitment in their ‘22 recruiting class. He is the third highest recruit currently in the boat for Oklahoma along with Gavin Sawchuk, and Gentry Williams. With the offensive talent that is already on the roster, and remains in this recruiting class, Venables has a head start over most defensive minded coaches. Venables could very likely lure some of Clemson’s elite defenders to join this Oklahoma offense, and form a very nasty roster.
Nick Evers is a four-star quarterback for Flower Mound High School in Flower Mound, Texas. He stands 6’3, and weighs roughly 188-pounds but you wouldn’t guess that with how physical he is. 247Sports has him ranked as the 10th best quarterback in the 2022 recruiting cycle. Landing a quarterback this talented, this quickly after Lincoln Riley’s departure, is definitely a good sign for Sooners’ Nation.
