Sawyer Goram-Welch Completes Flip, Commits to UT After OSU Decommitment

Goram-Welch officially flips from OSU to UT.



Class of 2020 defensive tackle Sawyer Goram-Welch made his flip from Oklahoma State to Texas official on Sunday. The three-star Longview, Texas product, on the heels of a Dec. 7 decommitment from Oklahoma State, waited a week before announcing what many in the industry expected: he’ll play for the Texas Longhorns.

Goram-Welch had been committed to OSU since October until a Dec. 2 offer from the in-state Longhorns threw a wrench into the situation. Making matters for OSU more difficult to swallow, Goram-Welch announced he will enroll early. Given the state of Oklahoma State’s defensive tackle position, OSU certainly could have used him early.

While Goram-Welch did not provide any comment about Oklahoma State in his commitment tweet, he said the following last week when backing away from his OSU pledge:

Goram-Welch is the second defensive tackle in three recruiting cycles to back away from his OSU pledge in the final hour, joining Israel Antwine, who flipped from Colorado just before signing day. Antwine played one year with the Buffaloes before transferring to Oklahoma State.

With Goram-Welch officially out of the picture, defensive tackle figures to be a priority position for OSU leading into this week’s signing day and into the final signing day in February. OSU has just one commitment at the position in Denton Guyer’s Grant Mahon.
