Supporters of the Oklahoma football program were not happy with one five-star recruit on April Fool’s Day. The talented high schooler pulled a prank on the fanbase, tricking Sooner Nation into believing he’d committed to the school.

Davis Stone Jr. is one of the top college football targets in the 2024 class. The defensive lineman, who attends IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, has OU in his final group.

Along with Oklahoma, Stone lists interests in Michigan State, Texas A&M, LSU, and Miami. The Spartans and Sooners seem to be out in front in the race to land his pledge, both landing crystal ball predictions at 24/7 Sports.

But over the weekend, OU fans thought that the race had been won. In a now deleted tweet, Stone posted a fake commitment graphic in favor of the Sooners.

He then followed up with a hilarious apology for tricking the entire fanbase.

That apology apparently didn’t make up for the recruit’s April Fool’s Day prank. Here’s what Sooner Nation was saying online.

One follower wrote, “Unfollowed. Go play for A&M Mr. Attention,” while another said, “Are you 10 years old? Grow up.”

This fan admitted to getting got, posting, “Man that was dirty, had me doing the happy chicken dance. Only to find out it was April Fool’s.”

While they’re upset now, many of those Sooner fans will gladly accept a real commitment to the program this offseason. Oklahoma appears to be the team to beat, though anything can happen in recruiting.

As of now, Stone is rated as the seventh-best player in the nation, regardless of position. He’s also listed as the second-best defensive lineman and third-best player in the state of Florida, according to 24/7 Sports.
