OU gets on the board again for the Class of 2014 with its second linebacker commit of the class in Curtis Bolton

Oklahoma has made a home in recruiting California the last few years, and the success continued Sunday night.

Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta three-star linebacker Curtis Bolton confirmed via a YouTube video announcement and then via Twitter he is the latest Cali prospect to commit to the Sooners.

Bolton, who is 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, is ranked No. 50 at outside linebacker and also has offers from Washington, Washington State, and Arizona, among others.

Last week Bolton talked about trying to finalize an official visit to Norman, Okla., this fall and the prevailing thought was it would be on that visit where a potential commitment would happen.

But he felt he didn’t need to wait. The relationship he has built with OU coaches Mike Stoops and Tim Kish gave him enough confidence to go ahead and pull the trigger now.

The addition of Bolton to OU’s commit list is a big one. He is the Sooners’ 13th pledge for the Class of 2014 and the second at linebacker.

And after having no pure linebackers committed for the last class, Bolton and Allen (Texas) High three-star linebacker Tay Evans are more natural in the position. OU was one of the first schools to offer Bolton back in the winter, and it’s clear the early interest has paid off.

Bolton had 70 tackles and 10.5 sacks as a junior.
