Oklahoma picked up a commitment from one of the state's top in-state 2021 prospects in Ethan Downs on Wednesday. 

Downs, a weakside defensive end from Weatherford, is listed at 6-4, 235 pounds. He has offers from Texas, LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Stanford among others. Rivals.com lists him as the state of Oklahoma's top '21 prospect and No. 20 nationally at his position with three stars. 

He's OU's third commitment from '21, joining Brock Vandagriff — the nation's top QB — and four-star receiver Cody Jackson.
