Sulphur Springs, Texas, safety Keenan Clayton committed to Oklahoma in July. The recruiting process has slowed down a lot since that decision was made, but Clayton continues to receive attention from other schools.
“I get some calls from schools,” the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Clayton said. “Arkansas is the one who calls the most. None of it is going to change my mind at all. I tell them thanks, but I am still going to Oklahoma.”
Clayton, who is scheduled to visit Oklahoma officially Dec. 10, has been impressed with his future teammates’ play during the season.
“They have been doing real well,” the four-star rated safety said. “It’s fun to watch them. I’ve only been to one game, though. I went to the Red River Shootout. That was a good game to watch as far as Oklahoma fans were concerned. They kept the streak going against Texas.”
Clayton has the ability to bring back memories of a former All-American safety for the Sooners according to Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Jeremy Crabtree.
“Keenan has the size and speed similar to what Roy Williams had,” Crabtree said. “He could certainly develop into that type of player when he arrives in Norman.”
On the season, Clayton has helped Sulphur Springs to a 7-2 record. He has recorded 104 tackles and four interceptions through the first nine games.
