Oklahoma extended an offer to 2024 Miami Columbus four-star linebacker TJ Capers on Friday. Capers announced the news over social media.

The 6-foot-1.5, 230 pound defender is currently ranked as the No. 6 overall prospect and No. 1 linebacker in the 2024 On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

The only players ranked ahead of Capers in the On3 Consensus are Chandler (Ariz.) five-star quarterback and Ohio State commit Dylan Raiola, Chesapeake (Va.) IMG Academy five-star cornerback Desmond Ricks, Buford (Ga.) five-star safety KJ Bolden, Miami Central five-star wide receiver Joshisa Trader and Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna Prep five-star wide receiver Jeremiah Smith.

Capers is also rated as the No. 1 linebacker in the 2024 On300. On3 also ranks him as the No. 16 overall prospect in the class of 2024.

Currently, there are no commitments in the Sooners’ 2024 recruiting class. However, Oklahoma’s 2023 recruiting class is ranked No. 12 in the 2023 On3 Consensus Team Recruiting Rankings.

According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, Miami has a commanding lead for Capers’ commitment at 53%. The Hurricanes are one of 16 programs to offer Capers so far.

Capers has an On3 NIL Valuation of $143K. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.

The On3 Scouting Summary for Capers mentions that he is a “longer-limbed inside backer who can cover, shed blockers and rush the passer all at a high level. Effective blitzer coming off the edge. Chases in backside pursuit to the ball carrier consistently. Not afraid to stick his face into traffic when playing in the box. Tested well this spring with an electronically-timed 4.62 40 and a 27” vertical. Three-sport athlete who plays basketball and participates in track and field. Checks every box for the inside backer position and has an enormously high floor and an even higher ceiling.”
