Valor Christian’s Gavin Sawchuk commits to Oklahoma football – The Denver Post

Gavin Sawchuk is Oklahoma bound.

The star running back, who’s entering his senior season at Valor Christian High School, committed to the Sooners over the weekend, according to 247sports.com.

“Boomer Sooner,” he tweeted Tuesday morning.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Sawchuk burst his way to 1,239 yards rushing on 131 carries and 17 touchdowns in eight games last season, helping the Eagles reach the 5A championship game as a junior. He was named the Gatorade Colorado football player of the year in May.

In 12 games as a sophomore, he had 197 carries for 1,786 yards and 23 TDs for Valor.

He is a four-star recruit, according to 247sports.com, and is the second-best running back and No. 43 overall player in the 2022 class. He had numerous offers from Division I programs, including Colorado, Colorado State, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Southern California.

This marks the fifth straight year the top-ranked player in 247Sports’ composite rankings committed to an out-of-state school. The last top-ranked player to commit in-state was Pomona offensive lineman Jake Moretti, who signed with CU in 2017. He is also the only top-ranked commit from Colorado to sign for CU or CSU since 2010.
