Lincoln Riley has been the Oklahoma Sooners head coach for just short of three weeks, but has already managed to pick up seven pledges with the latest coming from Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal athlete Jaylon Robinson on his birthday.

The Sooners’ latest 2018 addition is intriguing and impactful for a variety of reasons.
For Oklahoma, Robinson is now the second commitment to roll in within the last 24 hours, as he joins Brenham wide receiver Treveon Johnson, who committed on Sunday evening. More notably, he’s the fifth commit to hail from Texas this cycle, and he happens to give the Sooners commit No. 14 overall and lifts Oklahoma into the nation’s No. 7 spot, which pushed the Longhorns to No. 8, per 247Sports Composite.
Robinson committed to Oklahoma over a variety of options including Baylor, Georgia, Houston, Texas Tech and Illinois.
Similarly to Johnson, Robinson is a former Texas Tech pledge who backed out of his commitment to the Red Raiders just weeks ago after picking up his Oklahoma offer on June 8. As a junior Paschal High School prior to transferring to All Saints Episcopal, Robinson rushed for 304 yards and four touchdowns on 61 carrier, along with 37 receptions for 446 yards and three touchdowns. He also returned a kick return and a punt return for scores in 2016.
A 5’10, 170-pound prospect, Robinson ranks as the nation’s No. 462 player, No. 28 athlete and the No. 64 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
