Wide receiver Jalen Reagor has de-committed from Oklahoma and committed to TCU, according to his Twitter account. In his Twitter post, Reagor, a native of Waxahachie, Texas, expressed a desire to stay closer to home.
“I’ve talked to my family, teammates, coaches at my school and most of all God and I have decided to stay closer to my family and friends,” Reagor wrote. “…I would like to announce the I will be de-committing from OU and committing to TCU to play with my current teammate Kenedy Snell and past teammate Jordan Kitna.”
Reagor is rated as a four-star prospect by ESPN and the 49th overall ranked player in his 2017 recruiting class. ESPN describes him as a speedy receiver who has potential to contribute in the return game. “Reagor is an explosive playmaker that should also find a role at the next level in the return game which is where he could really be dangerous because of his burst and ability to make defenders miss,” their scouting report says. “[Reagor is a] very good prospect with upside to develop into a complete receiver.”
Without Reagor, Oklahoma still has two four-star receivers committed for the 2017 class in CeeDee Lamb and Charleston Rambo. Oklahoma and TCU are both members of the Big 12 Conference, so Reagor and the Sooners will likely see plenty of each other in the house of his career.
In his statement, Reagor describes the difficulty of the decision to turn down Oklahoma. “I want to first start off by saying this was a very hard decision for me to make,” he says. “I want to thank the University of Oklahoma and the coaches for believing in me and blessing me with a Scholarship.”
