Little Rock (Ark.) Parkview Magnet four-star safety Omarion Robinson has committed to the Oklahoma Sooners. The No. 2 project in Arkansas had the Razorbacks high on his list, but when he made his decision, he chose between Oklahoma and Oregon.

“I went back and forth a few times,” Robinson told On3. “In the spring, I thought it was Oklahoma, then after my official visit to Oregon, I thought it was them. I came home from Oregon thinking I was going there, but after thinking more about it and talking with my family, I decided Oklahoma was best for me.

“It was a very tough decision, but me and my family feel great about Oklahoma. The coaches, the culture, the location and a lot of things stood out to me.”

One of the biggest factors was the location. A drive to Norman is less than five hours. Eugene is a flight back and forth. His family seeing him play is important.

The connection with Brandon Hall made a big impact too.

“Some coaches recruited me on and off, but coach Hall started my freshman year and he never stopped. He was with me from the beginning. Our relationship got stronger and stronger over the years and we got closer and closer. How he recruited me was big in my decision. Coach Hall was on me early, I trust in him and he stayed consistent.”

Robinson is ready to go all in with the Sooners

Brent Venables almost got that token of commitment from Robinson in the spring. The No. 30 safety in the country wanted to take a few more visits though. He wasn’t ready to go all in like he is now.

“Now I know,” Robinson said. “That brotherhood at Oklahoma is different. That is where I want to be. The coaches have great relationships with the players, the players are together in the locker room and everyone at Oklahoma cares for each other.

“Norman is a great place, full of great people and a great college town with good food. Coach Venables is a great guy and he is building something special with a great staff that can develop players. It is something I want to be a part of.”
