National Signing Day is always full of incredible moments and the early signing period in 2018 has been no different. Four-star safety Jeremiah Criddell, who is the No. 4-ranked athlete in the nation according to the ESPN 300, appeared on the Worldwide Leader in Sports on Wednesday, December 19 to announce his college decision.
When it was time to make his announcement, the Mater Dei High School standout chose the Oklahoma Sooners over the Oregon Ducks.
Wasting no time, Criddell then showed that he will fit right in with his new teammates in Norman by taking a direct shot at the rival Texas Longhorns and flashing the “Horns Down” logo.
Criddell is just the latest in a long line of Oklahoma football commits to flash the “Horns Down” logo after signing their National Letter of Intent.
