Jordan Renaud, 4-star 2023 edge rusher, has SEC team in final 2, sets commitment date
Jordan Renaud, a 4-star 2023 edge rusher, has officially narrowed his commitment decision down to just two programs and has set his announcement date.
Renaud will play out his college career at either Alabama or Oklahoma and will make his decision public on Sept. 19. The 6-4, 250-pounder of Tyler (TX) Legacy High School recently went in-depth with On3 Sports on his interest in both programs.
Obviously, with Alabama, it comes down to sheer prestige and historical dominance.
“I feel that Alabama has always been a perennial powerhouse,” Renaud said in a report from Hayes Fawcett. “As far as development goes, they have some of the best development in the country. Me and coach Roach have a great relationship. When I went on my visit there, it was very eye opening to what Alabama really is, and what they do for their players.”
With Oklahoma, there’s a lot of excitement about the Sooners’ ceiling and the coaching staff in place there in Norman.
“With Oklahoma, I feel like they have a chance to be the next Alabama, or starting something new under coach Venables,” Renaud said. “I was recruited to Alabama by coach Valai, who is now at Oklahoma, so it was a seamless transition when it came to that part. With the coaching staff, it is a lot of family oriented stuff, and I felt the love early. They prioritized me early in my recruitment and made me feel like they really want me.”
Renaud is listed as the No. 86 overall player in the nation, the No. 8 defensive lineman and the No. 16 prospect in the state of Texas in the 247Sports composite.
