The Oklahoma Sooners have landed coveted four-star wide receiver Marcus Harris. On June 17, Harris took to social media to announce his decision to go to Norman.


According to 247Sports, Harris is the No. 164 overall prospect and No. 17 wide receiver in the 2025 recruiting cycle. Per On3, he is the No. 16 player from the state of California.



Harris received offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Oregon, Penn State and others.


According to OUInsider's beat writer Jesse Crittenden, Oklahoma receivers coach Emmett Jones was instrumental in landing Harris.



Harris' Bio, Stats

Harris is 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, and plays high school ball at historic football powerhouse Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif. As a junior, he was a major contributor to Mater Dei's state title-winning team. He hauled in 43 receptions for 644 yards and 6 touchdowns. He turned in those numbers following his sophomore season, in which he had 25 catches for 644 yards and 12 touchdowns.


Harris also runs track and has recorded a time of 11.14 seconds in the 100-meter dash.



Harris is a "sure-handed" and "explosive" receiver who excels at route running and making contested catches even when defensive backs are "draped over him," according to 247Sports. He has a knack for making acrobatic catches. Harris' high school numbers would be higher if he played somewhere other than high-flying Mater Dei, where it is difficult to put up big numbers because of the program's extraordinary depth at the receiver position, according to 247Sports.


Haris does not yet have a disclosed NIL valuation.

Oklahoma Sooners Soaring

In the words of Heartland Sports, "Oklahoma's recruiting momentum is taking flight." Harris is the 16th recruit to commit to the Sooners' 2025 class, which is comprised of nine four-stars. The Sooners' class is now rated No. 11 in the nation and No. 6 in the Southeastern Conference.


Oklahoma is building an impressive wide receiver room for the future. Harris is the third four-star wideout in the 2025 class, joining Elijah Thomas from Checotah, Okla. and Gracen Harris from Ennis, Texas.


The other six four stars in Oklahoma's 2025 class are:


  1. Ryan Fodje, offensive lineman from Cypress, Texas

  2. Trystan Haynes, quarterback from Midwest City, Okla.

  3. Trent Wilson, defensive lineman from Upper Marlboro, Md.

  4. Kevin Sperry, quarterback from Denton, Texas

  5. Trynae Washington, athlete from Oklahoma City

  6. Tory Blaylock, running back from Houston


With this impressive array of highly-rated players, the future looks bright for the Sooners.
