The Red River Rivalry is one of the fiercest rivalries in college sports. But it's taking on a different form for four-star safety Bryson Washington.

Via Twitter on Tuesday, Washington revealed that he had narrowed his college choice to the two Red River schools: Texas and Oklahoma.

"My Top 2 Schools Please Respect My Decision......" he wrote on Twitter before showing a promo for the two schools.

Washington is the No. 161 overall prospect in the country per 247Sports. He is considered the No. 11 safety in the country, and the No. 20 prospect from the state of Texas.

He had a breakout campaign in 2017 with 56 tackles, 23 passes defended, five interceptions and four pick-sixes.

It's still early in the Class of 2020 recruiting process, but Texas and Oklahoma are neck-and-neck in the race for the top recruiting class in the Big 12 Conference.

As of writing, Oklahoma leads the way with the No. 13 class in the country, while Texas is hot on their heels with the No. 22 class in the country, per 247Sports.

Texas and Oklahoma faced each other twice in the college football this past season. Texas narrowly won the regular season matchup, while Oklahoma got revenge in the Big 12 Championship Game that ultimately propelled the Sooners to the College Football Playoff.
