Texas-based safety Bryson Washington has been weighing his college choice between Texas and Oklahoma for a while now. On the 4th of July, he finally reached his decision.
On Thursday, Washington released a video on Twitter announcing that he would be committing to Oklahoma. Last week he announced that he had reduced his decision to the Red River rivalry schools.

Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas A&M were the only schools that Washington visited in the past year, but the Aggies didn’t make the cut.
247Sports rates Washington as a four-star prospect and the No. 198 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 15 safety in the nation, and the No. 33 prospect from the state of Texas.

The 2020 safety from Houston recorded 56 tackles, 23 passes defended, five interceptions, and four pick sixes as a sophomore in 2017.
He joins an Oklahoma recruiting class that currently ranks No. 12 in the nation and No. 1 in the Big 12, per 247Sports.
The Sooners have won four straight Big 12 titles and been to three of the last four editions of the College Football Playoff.
With the recruiting classes Lincoln Riley has been picking up lately, that streak may very well continue for a few more years.
