Recruiting Spotlight: Jones County's Zion Ragins
One of the fastest players in the nation has committed to play for Oklahoma next season. Jones County High School senior wide receiver Zion Ragins is a champion on the Greyhounds track and field team and could be an electric force for the Sooners as soon as next season.
Ragins runs an impressive 4.23-second 40-yard dash and took home gold at the GHSA Class 5A track meet in the 100-meter dash both his freshman and sophomore seasons. He also owns a personal-best 10.37 in the race, the best recorded by a freshman in Georgia. His goal is to get back to the state championships in both football and track this year.
The All-American is a consensus 4-star prospect and the No. 34 wide receiver in the country and No. 3 at his position in the state, according to the 247Sports Composite. He became the 14th member of the Sooners 2024 class, but also received offers from Georgia, Florida State, South Carolina, Miami and Auburn, among others.
