The University of Tulsa defense landed a significant addition Wednesday, when former Oklahoma linebacker Jon-Michael Terry announced his commitment to the Hurricane on Twitter.
Terry, a Tulsa native who graduated from Victory Christian, played in 42 games in four years for the Sooners and recorded 51 career tackles, including 22 in 2020. He will be a graduate transfer, taking advantage of the NCAA’s additional year of eligibility.
Ranked as a four-star recruit by ESPN out of high school, Terry totaled 175 tackles as a senior and was selected the No. 3 recruit in Oklahoma by Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN. He redshirted his first year at OU in 2016.
The Hurricane received a verbal commitment Tuesday night from another defensive player from Tulsa, Holland Hall defensive end Owen Ostroski. TU signed six players in December, all from out of state.
