Oklahoma kicks off 2014 class with wide receiver Armanti Foreman
Oklahoma has a big need at wide receiver going forward and addressed that position with their first 2014 recruit in Texas City (Texas) wide receiver Armanti Foreman, who committed to the Sooners Monday night.
"It feels good," Foreman told Rivals. "Me making that decision, talking to coach (Jay) Norvell and my dad and my family about it I feel like it was a great decision for myself. I really like a lot of stuff about the program and the team and the offense. I feel like I can be a big part of that offense and I hope I can make a name for myself in that offense. They throw the ball a lot so why not go to a school like that."
The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder had been drawing attention from major programs, but Oklahoma was his first and only offer at the time of his commitment.
"It really wasn't just a first offer thing for me because if I didn't feel like Oklahoma was a good fit for me I wouldn't have put myself in this situation just because they're the first offer," Foreman added. "I'm pretty sure more offers will come but when you have a school like Oklahoma you cannot pass that up. I see myself fitting well in that offense and doing a lot of things at this school. I see myself trying to do punt and kick returns. A lot of things."
The Sooners have only 11 commitments for the class of 2013, two of whom are receivers.
