OU football: Sooners get commitment from 4-star cornerback P.J. Mbanasor

by Ryan Aber Published: June 3, 2014

NORMAN — Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson has once again proven fruitful for Oklahoma football.

Four-star cornerback P.J. Mbanasor committed to the Sooners on Tuesday, becoming OU’s fifth commit for the 2015 class.

The former TCU commit announced his decision on Twitter, posting “Let’s gooooo! I’m done! #BlessedBoomer.”

He chose the Sooners over a final group that included six other schools—Florida, LSU, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

Mbanasor (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) is the second Hendrickson player to commit to the Sooners in as many years. Running back Samaje Perine committed to the Sooners in March 2013 and signed with the Sooners in February.

Mbanasor is the No. 232 player nationally according to Rivals.com and the No. 23 cornerback.

He’s the second Rivals250 commit for the Sooners, joining Jenks defensive tackle Marquise Overton.

Mbanasor is the second cornerback in the class. Dallas South Oak Cliff’s Jamile Johnson is the other.

His commitment is non-binding. He can sign beginning Feb. 4, 2015.

Mbanasor committed to TCU in January but after a flood of new offers from around the country, he re-opened his recruitment in March before settling on the Sooners.
