Brendan Radley-Hiles, a four-star 2018 cornerback, will be an Oklahoma Sooner.

An IMG Academy star, Brendan Radley-Hiles was committed to Nebraska earlier in the recruiting cycle, but backed away from that decision in early November.

He originally said that Nebraska and Alabama would be represented with hats during today's commitment ceremony at the US Army All-American Bowl game, but instead, only four schools were featured.

Ultimately, Oklahoma beat out Florida State, UCLA, and USC for the blue-chip cornerback.

The Oklahoma decision makes the voters over at 247Sports' crystal ball look good. Heading into the decision, the Sooners were the favorite, with 77-percent of the prognosticators predicting that he would be Norman-bound. With a month until National Signing Day, that appears to be the case. Radley-Hiles is the No. 48 overall player in the class. 247 ranks him No. 7 among cornerbacks, and No. 9 in Florida. He is a native of Inglewood, California. Moments ago, he posted a note about his decision to Twitter.

His full note:

"I would like to start this message off by thank the Lord in the highest for the opportunities he has blessed my family and I with. To my backbone, my mother, thank you for everything you've done to get me here. Without you I am nothing. To my beautiful grandmother who is looking over me with her great smile, I Love & Miss you so much. A special thank you to my father. Thank you for the wisdom and guidance you've given me throughout my years. To my idols, role models, that taught me everything I know, my brothers Bubba and Lucky. To the end I'll go as long as y'all are with me. Thank you to my two sisters Brentney and Bijan for being my second mothers when it needed to be done. To my three nieces and nephews, I promise Uncle will set a great example for you guys. Thank you to all my cousins that stood by my side through it all. Can't thank my aunt & uncle Kelly & Steve enough for all the support you've given to me since I was seven years old. To My Real CBS Soliders, I Love Y'all to the death of me. Thank you to the city of Inglewood for giving me the confidence to face the world and reach my maximum potential.
