Five-star RB Joe Mixon has Sooners in top five

by Ryan Aber Published: August 26, 2013

Five-star running back Joe Mixon of Oakley (Calif.) Freedom, trimmed his list from 10 to five on Monday, leaving Oklahoma in the mix.

Mixon announced his list on Twitter, announcing the Sooners third after saying the list wasn’t in a particular order. Mixon also listed Florida, Cal, Wisconsin and Oregon in the group.

Mixon (6-foot-2, 207 pounds) is No. 10 on the most recently released Rivals100 ranking of the top prospects in the 2014 class. He’s the third running back on the list.

He’s scheduled to visit Norman for the TCU game during the first week of October.

Oklahoma hasn’t signed a five-star running back since Brandon Williams in 2011. Williams played as a freshman in a backup role before transferring to Texas A&M and sitting out last season.
