Arthur McGinnis, a four-star linebacker, decided to commit to play for the University of Oklahoma via Twitter on Monday night.

“Throughout this whole process I feel that I have grown into a better football player but most importantly into a better man. There’s no limit to how appreciative I am towards all you guys.. Thank you! But as fun as it was, I would now like to announce my commitment to the University of Oklahoma #BoomerSooner.”

Arthur McGinnis is an outside linebacker from New Orleans.

McGinnis was highly recruited from several schools including Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Arizona, Arkansas State, Louisville, Louisiana Tech and Boise State.
