The Oklahoma Sooners' outlook became a lot brighter over the weekend, with the program announcing commitments from four players from the Class of 2019 and one for the following year.
Five-star wide receivers Arjei Henderson and Theo Wease, who decommitted from Oklahoma last April, renewed their commitments on Friday, per The Oklahoman. The Texas-based wideouts had re-opened their recruiting after four-star quarterback Cameron Rising had switched his commitment to the Texas Longhorns.
Joining the duo on Friday was four-star safety Jamal Morris and four-star running Jaylon Knighton, who is committed for the Class of 2020.
Then on Saturday, after the Sooners' spring game, three-star defensive tackle renewed his commitment to the Sooners. He had also re-opened his recruiting before electing to stay.
"I just wanted to say thanks for the thoughts and prayers to everyone that's supporting me but I know what's best for me and I can feel it...so I'm going back home. see you in a few Norman cuz I'm coming," Green wrote in his announcement.
The news wasn't all positive for the Sooners, however.
Sophomore running back Trey Sermon suffered a right knee injury during the game on Saturday.
Sermon was injured when tackled by freshman safety Patrick Fields after an 11-yard gain. He was helped off by the school's training staff and taken to the locker room.
"We'll look at Trey Sermon. I don't think it's serious," Sooners coach Lincoln Riley said in a press conference following the spring game. They'll evaluate him further but I think early indications look positive."
Sermon rushed for 744 yards and five touchdowns in 2017 as a freshman. He also caught 16 passes for 139 yards and another two scores.
