Denton (Texas) Guyer four-star quarterback Jackson Arnold will be visiting Oklahoma this weekend, he told Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports on Thursday.

Wiltfong reports that Arnold and Sooners offense coordinator Jeff Lebby have developed a very strong relationship.

“I love Lebby,” Arnold told 247 Sports. “He’s there and that’s definitely exciting and that’s a place I want to go see.

Arnold is the No. 92 overall player and seventh-best quarterback in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Arnold threw for 3,931 yards and 34 touchdowns while adding 659 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground this past season, which was his first as the Denton Guyer’s starting quarterback.

He led the team to the state championship game where they lost to Austin (Texas) Westlake. He backed up former four-star prospect and current Texas A&M player Eli Stowers his two years with the team.

Thursday was a big day for Arnold. He not only picked up an offer from LSU but also was named the the Dallas Morning News’ offensive player of the year.

Jackson Arnold could be the second DFW QB commit to Oklahoma in two cycles

Flower Mound (Texas) four-star quarterback Nick Evers is the most recent quarterback commit to Oklahoma, signing his National Letter of Intent during signing day.

When Evers decommitted from Florida after the hiring of Billy Napier, Oklahoma immediately jumped into the race for Evers, took control of that race and never took its foot off the break until they got his commitment.

One of the main reasons for that was the connection he quickly developed with Lebby and head coach Brent Venables. The new Sooners head coach had high praise for Evers when asked about him during his early signing period press conference.

“Tremendous discipline. Natural leader. Connected from coast to coast. Kids love him — easy to follow. Just a great athlete. He’s just scratching the surface,” Venables said. “Got length. He’s got speed, he’s got arm talent. Very accurate player, and everything’s still sitting in-front of him.”
