The Oklahoma Sooners are building a very solid 2016 recruiting class, and they were able to add to that class on Saturday evening. They received a commitment from four-star cornerback Parrish Cobb, who should add a very solid playmaker in the secondary for them long-term.

Cobb is listed as a cornerback, wide receiver and punt returner, and can help impact the Sooners in quite a few different ways. He will likely stay as a defensive back for the majority of his career with the Sooners, although he could be a big part of their special teams as well. There is no doubting his athleticism, and his future is incredibly bright in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma was not the only team that was interested in adding Cobb to their 2016 recruiting class.
Other schools that gave him an offer were Baylor, Texas, Arkansas and Arizona State. Oklahoma was without question the biggest school that offered him a scholarship, and it doesn’t seem like it was a very difficult decision for him. That being said, it will be very interesting to see what his career holds with the Sooners.
Don’t be surprised to see Cobb develop in a big way throughout his final season at La Vega High School in Waco, Texas. He has all of the skills and potential to become something very special at the next level, and Oklahoma could very well have gotten a diamond in the rough.
Only time will tell whether or not he can live up to his full potential, but if he continues to work hard and learns from his Oklahoma coaching staff, he should be able to become a star for the Sooners’ defense.
