After a successful official visit Arlington Bowie defensive end Jarrett Brown has issued a commitment to Oklahoma...

Jarrett Brown, a 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end from Arlington Bowie High in Texas is the latest player to announce his commitment to the Oklahoma Sooners for the class of '09.

"Yes sir," Brown responded when asked if he had pulled the trigger on a commitment. Brown, a late bloomer on the recruiting scene, racked up official scholarship offers from schools like Tennessee, Kansas State, Iowa State, Fresno State, Kansas, and TCU before the Sooners came calling last week.

Brown grew up a lifelong Sooner fan, so after some deliberation he decided to take an official visit this weekend to Soonerland and see if OU felt like the right place for him.

Arlington Bowie head coach Kenny Perry believes that his talented pupil will bring a great combination of skills that will benefit the Sooner program.

"He is a good kid that is an exciting football player," Perry said. "He has a good frame. He was a basketball player so he is just starting to turn himself in to a true football player."

With a deadly combination of size, speed, character, and upside the OU coaching staff may have pulled in another late defensive end surprise, like they did with Jeremy Beal, who is starting to become a star on the edge.

Brown is currently the 23rd commitment in the class, but OLB commit Brandon Mahoney took an official visit to Texas Tech this weekend and it is likely that he will not sign with the Sooners on Signing Day.

OU is also waiting on word as to whether wide receivers Terry Hawthorne and Rueben Randle will sign a letter of intent with the program on Wednesday.
