Sooners target Nigel Smith Jr. shuts down recruitment, sets commitment date

Caught in the hysteria and hype of Oklahoma’s pursuit of five-star defenders,

 the Sooners are currently in a major recruiting battle for another blue chip defensive lineman.

While Oklahoma’s pursuits of David Stone and Williams Nwaneri have been covered relentlessly,

Smith, a top 100 player, is another priority recruitment for the Sooners.

As his recruitment winds down. Friday, Smith took to social media to offer an update on his recruitment.

This declaration, in particular, signals a decision has likely been made.

 It’s also probably fair to infer that Smith would like to focus on his responsibilities as a student-athlete for the remainder of the summer.

He plans to commit on September 8, the day of his season opener for Melissa.

 He also announced his recruitment is closed and doesn’t plan on doing any interviews or taking any more visits until after his commitment.

“I will be committing on September 8,” Smith said via social media.

“From the point on I will be closing my recruitment and not doing any interviews until after the date along with not taking anymore college visits.”

I will be committing on September 8.

I will be committing on September 8.
