NCAA Football: Western Carolina at Oklahoma

Sooners are officially recruiting elite talent on defense.

The Sooners aren’t just recruiting at an elite level on offense, but now it’s defense as well. Five-star 2022 defensive lineman Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy lives in Lakeland, Fla., but he has family connections in Norman, Okla. and has decided to commit to the Sooners over Ohio State, Clemson, Texas A&M, and several other programs.

Dindy may be the most talented defensive player that the Sooners have signed in quite some time. He gives off some MAJOR Myles Garrett and Ed Oliver vibes. He stands at a frame of 6’3”and 270 lbs., but is an incredibly athletic big man. He has the strength to bull rush opponents, but also the quickness and athleticism to get around offensive linemen. He’s already rated as a top 10 player in the nation, if he were 6’5”, he’d likely be No. 1.

Dindy is Oklahoma’s 15th commitment for the 2022 recruiting cycle and the third defensive lineman of the class. According to 247Sports Composite, he is the No. 10 player nationally, the No. 4 DL, and the No. 2 player from the state of Florida. If the Sooners continue to be able to reel in elite defensive talent like what they’re getting in Brownlow-Dindy, they’ll soon be able to dominate the game from both sides of the ball.
