The Path to Norman
Joshua Eaton attended Aldine MacArthur High School in Texas. TFB’s Super K described him as a good speed corner with truly elite size and movement and excellent ball skills. The August before his signing day, he committed to the Longhorns. Thankfully, that decision didn’t last long; he decommitted in October, shortly after a visit to Norman. His offer list included programs like Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Purdue, and USC. After some speculation of when he would sign, Eaton announced his decision to attend OU on the early signing day.
Since the start of my recruitment till now . I felt deep down in my soul that I would end up in Norman , Oklahoma. Well it’s finally official I’m COMING HOME #BoomerSooner

Career so Far
Eaton saw action in five games in his freshman season. He had the chance to gain game experience and work behind several older starters.
2021: 5 GP, 4 tackles
The cornerback spot, like the rest of the defense, looks ready to have its highest level of depth in years. Woodi Washington and D.J. Graham are expected to start, with a group including Eaton, Jaden Davis, and Latrell McCutchin behind them. With a season of experience under his belt, Eaton has the confidence to play more frequently this season. He will keep working for more snaps in 2021.
