BROKEN ARROW, OK — Xadavien Sims likes a lot of what he’s seen so far from Oklahoma.

But what he likes most is Sooners head coach Brent Venables.

Sims, the top-rated player in the state of Oklahoma in the 2024 recruiting class and a 4-star defensive lineman, according to 247 Sports, has a lot of options from which to choose.

And OU is at the top with any of them, thanks to Venables.

“It’s just like a family,” Sims told AllSooners recently in between games at the Prep Redzone Oklahoma 7-on-7 tournament. “Like, I could see myself being coached there. I went to a camp there, and he’s a great coach, Coach (Todd) Bates and Coach (Miguel) Chavis. And what really most stands out about OU is I have a really good relationship with the head coach, and I don’t have that with most of or a lot of the other schools. Coach Venables, he talks to me a lot, so that’s a real big thing for me. He coached me a lot when I was at the camp, so that’s what I like.”
