Four-star Receiver Loic Fouonji Commits to Texas Tech over Oklahoma State

The Pokes may take only one more WR in the 2020 cycle.



Four-star receiver Loic Fouonji, one of the long-time targets for Oklahoma State at the position in the 2020 recruiting cycle, committed to Texas Tech on Monday afternoon over Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas and others.

The 6-foot-4 pass catcher from Midland, Texas was first offered by the Red Raiders all the way back in February of 2018 — when Kliff Kingsbury was still coach. The new coaching staff reengaged him and hosted him for an official visit in October, which ultimately sealed the deal despite a late visit to Texas last month.

OSU was long considered to be one of the favorites here, but it appears Matt Polk’s commitment in October may have taken his spot in the class. Polk, like Fouonji, is a 6-foot-4 prospect who plays the same position on the outside.

This could signal OSU is now shifting its energies towards recruiting a player on the inside who can complement Polk. 2020 Midlothian prospect Jay Wilkerson has the size of a slot guy — 6-foot-1, 160 pounds — but he has throughout his high school career played on the outside, too, though his technique and route-running suggests a move inside shouldn’t be ruled out.

As of now, OSU has just one true receiver pledge in the cycle with Polk and another — Brennan Presley — who could play either on offense or defense at OSU. At one point earlier in the high school season, Presley, a Bixby product, led the country in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. MaxPreps lists Presley with 1,398 yards receiving and 23 touchdowns in 11 games this season.
