The Sooners and Bill Bedenbaugh picked up another huge piece in the ’20 Deep’ class as 2020 offensive lineman Andrew Raym (Broken Arrow, OK) has publicly announced his commitment to the University of Oklahoma!
Raym checks off another set of Lincoln Riley ‘eyes’ off the list as the head coach sent out his favorite emoji signaling his commitment back on May 25th, 2019.
The commitment, or recommitment, of Raym, gives the Sooners their 14th member of the ’20 Deep’ class and the third offensive lineman for Bill Bedenbaugh as he joins Nate Anderson and Noah Nelson in the class.
Raym’s journey to becoming a Sooner began back on November 26th, 2017 when he initially committed to OU and became the third member of the class as he joined Jase McClellan and former commit Drew Sanders as the foundation of the class.
Then, on May 3rd, 2018, the highly coveted lineman decommitted from OU as he wanted to open up his recruitment and take some trips without the pressure of being an Oklahoma commit.
While he was exploring his options, Raym picked up a ton of offers from programs across the country from the likes of Notre Dame, Alabama, Michigan, Georgia, and LSU.
He visited a number of those schools and eventually Georgia and Michigan, along with Oklahoma, became the focus.
Following Riley’s eyes, Raym took official visits to both Michigan and Georgia and while both programs piqued his curiosity, the Sooners were seemingly always going to be called home in the end.
Raym is an elite lineman who has the ability to play anywhere along the offensive line and Oklahoma Offensive Line Coach Bill Bedenbaugh has another versatile puzzle piece to plug into his dominant position group room.
