DE Michael Onuoha Spurns Missouri, Stays With In-State Sooners

6'6" 230 pound Edmond Santa Fe defensive end Michael Onuoha had originally stated that he intended to wait until Wednesday to announce his college destination, however the anticipation got the better of him late Tuesday night. As so many recruits seem to do these days, Onuoha took to his Twitter account with the simple but oh so effective "#BOOMER SOONER!".

The Sooners have made a habit of flipping recruits in recent days taking TE Sam Grant from Michigan and CB Zack Sanchez from Baylor. Onuoha now makes another after long being considered a Missouri lean. The Tigers were the first to offer and had put in a considerable amount of work, but apparently the in-state Sooners were just too much for the raw but talented DE to pass up.

Onuoha is now the 23rd verbal commitment for Oklahoma, but just the seventh on the defensive side of the ball.
