The Path to Norman
Jordan Mukes and the Sooners started circling each other in early 2020. The Oklahoma native played corner at Choctaw and used his high-end athleticism to shut down one side of the field. He visited Norman and attempted to make multiple visits in the spring, but COVID got in the way. Mukes received an offer anyway, and committed just one week later.

The secondary has a mixture of untested talent and experienced players. At safety, Key Lawrence and Billy Bowman are set to start. A group including Bryson Washington, Justin Harrington, Robert Spears-Jennings, and Mukes will all be providing depth at the spot. The new defensive staff will be an opportunity for a fresh start for many of the secondary, Mukes included, to show what they can do.
