So you’ve seen a lot of growth. He was a very good leader, bright, energetic, hardworking, loved work and the game, and then this boy did not know the game. And that means he has a lot of power from God to do it.
While Oklahoma is Fasusi’s top school, Bedenbaugh and the Sooners still have to overcome some big-name programs to land the five-star prospect.

Fasusi told AllSooners that he is also interested in Missouri, Texas A&M, Texas, Oregon and Florida and plans to visit the aforementioned schools.
Still, OU is well positioned for Lewisville, and if they can finish the season strong, they should have a good shot at landing Fasusi in the 2025 class.
