Oklahoma brought out the big guns for the first-ever early signing period.
Adrian Peterson, of course, is one of the greatest running backs in the history of the OU football program. T.J. Pledger is one of the top running backs in the Class of 2018, with the IMG Academy product committed to the Sooners since verballing in March of this year.
Nine months later, Pledger followed through on that commitment, signing his National Letter of Intent with OU Wednesday morning. A short time later, OU’s official Twitter account used Peterson to officially confirm Pledger’s signing.
Pledger is a consensus four-star recruit, rated as the No. 3 running back in the country and the No. 83 player overall on 247Sports.com‘s composite board.
