After the early signing period, where Oklahoma received 25 national letters of intent, it appeared that the Sooners were done on the high school front. A few weeks ago, they began pursuing 2023 ATH Taylor Heim out of Bethany, just outside of Oklahoma City.
It didn't take long for the two-way three-star player to commit to the Sooners, and now he's made it official signing to play his college ball in Norman.
Heim projects as a linebacker at Oklahoma. He's athletic and displays good speed. On the offensive side of the ball, he regularly broke away from the pack for big plays as a runner and receiver. He displays a natural ability to attack the football in the air, which will make him dangerous in coverage at the second level.
Heim joins an athletic group of linebackers in the 2023 recruiting class, which includes Samuel Omosigho, Lewis Carter, and Phil Picciotti.
Taylor Heim is the No. 11 player in Oklahoma, giving the Sooners three of the top 11 in Jacobe Johnson, Erik McCarty, and Heim, highlighting the renewed emphasis for local scouting by Brent Venables and his staff.
