On Wednesday, April 10, a cohort of recruits is set to make commitments, and the Oklahoma Sooners are eagerly anticipating positive outcomes.

A significant day looms ahead in Oklahoma’s recruiting scene, with three crucial decisions for the class of 2025 scheduled for Wednesday, April 10.

The initial announcement will be made by Maliek Hawkins, who is the younger brother of current Oklahoma quarterback Michael Hawkins and the son of former OU defensive back Mike Hawkins. Maliek will unveil his decision on the Dave Campbell’s Texas Football YouTube Channel at 11 a.m. ET/10 a.m. CT. As the commitment approaches, the Sooners hold the advantage in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions with two picks in their favor.

Based on the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Player Rankings, Maliek Hawkins is recognized as one of the top-70 cornerbacks nationwide, holding the No. 69 spot overall. He is also rated as a three-star recruit and ranks as the No. 109 player within the state of Texas. However, according to the specific rankings from the 247Sports Network, our panel of national experts holds Hawkins in even higher regard. In these rankings, he is positioned as the No. 539 prospect overall for the 2025 recruiting cycle, the No. 53 cornerback in the country, and the No. 94 player in Texas, a state renowned for its football talent.

Following Maliek Hawkins, the spotlight shifts to Trent Wilson. This highly sought-after defensive lineman will announce his decision at approximately 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT, during a commitment ceremony streamed live on his Instagram account. Leading up to the reveal, Oklahoma maintains the advantage in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions.

According to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Player Rankings, Wilson is regarded as the No. 141 overall recruit in the 2025 class. He also holds a four-star rating and is recognized as one of the top-20 defensive linemen nationally, ranking at No. 18. Additionally, he stands out as one of the top three players in the state of Maryland. In the 247Sports Network’s specific rankings, Wilson is rated as a three-star prospect, positioned as one of the top-30 defensive linemen nationwide, and among the top eight players in Maryland.

 

Concluding the series of announcements is Cooper Perry, who will disclose his college commitment at 6:45 p.m. ET/5:45 p.m. CT. As anticipation builds, Oklahoma finds itself among the top four contenders, with speculation suggesting they may even be nearing the top two. However, the Oregon Ducks currently hold the advantage in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, with four selections favoring them.

In the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Player Rankings, Perry is recognized as the No. 251 overall recruit in the 2025 class. Additionally, he holds a four-star rating and is ranked as the No. 27 wide receiver nationally, as well as the top player in Arizona. According to the 247Sports Network’s specific rankings, Perry is positioned as the No. 28 wideout in the country and one of the top two prospects from Arizona in the 2025 cycle.

It promises to be a bustling day filled with excitement and activity, to say the least. However, for the Sooners, it could mark a significant period that results in substantial additions to their recruiting roster.
