4-Star Safety Jeremiah Criddell Commits To Oklahoma, Immediately Flashes "Horns Down"

Oklahoma commit Jeremiah Criddell does horns down.

Oklahoma's newest commit is already getting in on the fierce rivalry his school has with Texas. Jeremiah Criddell, a four-star safety, picked the Sooners on Wednesday morning and immediately took a shot at the Longhorns.

Criddell, who hails from Santa Ana, California, picked Oklahoma over Oregon on national signing day. His commitment was televised, and after he announced his decision, he flashed the "horns down" gesture.

A number of analysts on Twitter made the same joke after Criddell's gesture. If you remember, the Big 12 issued a warning to Oklahoma before the league's title game regarding the consequences for flashing "horns down."

Here's a photo of his move:

Criddell has offers from 22 different schools - Oklahoma, Oregon, Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Ole Miss, Baylor, BYU, Colorado, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Nebraska, Nevada, Notre Dame, TCU, USC, Utah, Utah State, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State.

Oklahoma, at the moment, has the ninth-ranked class for 2019, per 247 Sports.
