2021 four-star defensive lineman Kelvin Gilliam verbally committed to the Sooners on CBS Sports HQ Saturday evening.

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound weak-side defensive end from Highland Springs High School in Highland Springs, Virginia, chose Oklahoma over Penn State and South Carolina. Per 247Sports, Gilliam is the No. 9 weak-side defensive end in the country and the No. 4 player in Virginia in the class of 2021.

Gilliam is ranked No. 148 on the ESPN 300 recruiting database, directly behind fellow four-star defensive end and 2021 Sooner commit Ethan Downs. He’s also the high school teammate of 2021 three-star cornerback Damond Harmon, who committed to Oklahoma Aug. 1.

Gilliam’s commitment to OU comes just six days after fellow four-star 2021 defensive lineman and Sooner target Marcus Burris chose Texas A&M. Gilliam is Oklahoma’s fourth defensive lineman commitment in its 2021 recruiting class.
