NORMAN — The full scope of OU's 2022 quarterback situation remains a bit unsettled.

But the Sooners have their quarterback for the 2023 class.

Four-star Denton (Texas) Guyer product Jackson Arnold committed to OU on Monday.

Arnold's other offers include Alabama, Baylor, Cincinnati, Florida, Ohio State, Penn State, Notre Dame and Oklahoma State among others.

Arnold is a big piece for Brent Venables' staff as they work to rebuild the 2023 class that was decimated by departures after Lincoln Riley left for USC.

That included at quarterback, where OU had a commitment from Malachi Nelson, the five-star prospect who flipped to USC shortly after Riley's move.

Arnold (6-foot-2, 195 pounds) is the first 2023 commitment for the Sooners since Venables took over, joining wide receiver Deandre Moore and center Joshua Bates in the class. Moore and Bates committed to OU under Riley.

Arnold is ranked the No. 9 pro-style quarterback and No. 170 player overall in the 2023 class by Rivals.

OU's Caleb Williams has yet to make an announcement about his future after entering the transfer portal earlier this month, though he's widely expected to leave.

The Sooners added UCF transfer Dillon Gabriel and have pursued USC transfer Jaxson Dart, who is also considering Ole Miss and BYU.
