Tracking all of the ChampU BBQ Visitors

The ChampU BBQ has been extremely kind to the Oklahoma Sooners these last few years and it figures that as long as they keep hosting it, it will always remain that way. Generally, the Sooners’ have an absolutely elite collection of talent in Norman during the summer at a time when school is no longer a factor and prospects are focusing on recruiting.

Last year, the Sooners had flashy luxury cars and every notable Oklahoma player of the past that they could find in attendance. Adrian Peterson was there. Kyler Murray was there. CeeDee Lamb was in attendance. Sam Bradford and Lane Johnson were in the building. Roy Williams was there. Marquise Brown and Billy Sims joined the party. Kenneth Murray and Trent Williams were in attendance.

The event serves as the Sooners’ premier recruiting event of the calendar year and every year it seems to deliver as commitments follow shortly after.

Will this year under a new regime bring the same results? We don’t know but what we do know is who will be in attendance for this mega event.

We’ve taken the liberty of chronicling every confirmed ChampU BBQ visitor below.

One of the added perks of Brent Venables taking over as the head man in charge was that the Sooners would be able to consistently compete for the nation’s best linebackers.

That’s shown up as the Sooners are right in the middle of a tight race for one of the nation’s best linebackers. Anthony Hill, a five-star linebacker out of Denton(Texas) Ryan has the Sooners in his top six and will officially be making a visit to the Sooner state for the ChampU BBQ.

The Sooners have yet to land another offensive line commit in the 2023 class besides Joshua Bates who’s been committed for over a year now.

One of their top targets is offensive tackle Wilkin Formby who is from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He’ll be making the trip to the ChampU BBQ for his official visit as well.

Formby is a massive human already, standing at six-foot-seven and weighing over 280 pounds. Oklahoma made the cut for his top four list along with Tennessee, Ole Miss, Auburn, and hometown Alabama.
