ou-twitter-avatar1 Open Post | Wednesday, Feb. 12th

- OU target PJ Mbanasor picks up another offer this week. This time it’s from Notre Dame.

- Oklahoma has offered LB, DeShon Elliot out of Rockwall, TX.

- OU target Kahlil McKenzie received an invite to the Army All-American game.

- Got a bit of interesting news this morning on Oklahoma commit, Josh Wariboko. Wariboko plans on attending next weeks Texas Jr. day. I’ll have more on this later.

- Also, Westmoore HS WR Dahu Green picked up his first FBS offer today. Louisville offered. We’re big fans of Dahu. In fact Ryan Broyles did an evaluation on him just last night that we hope to have up later this week. He gave him a great score. Here are Dahu’s highlights:


  • Billy Jackson

    I saw a retweet of Wariboko’s pimping himself on behalf of his younger brother. I wonder what the Stoops’ think of that?

    • Fear The Magic

      what did he say?

      • Zack

        Basically he just said in order for him to visit a school they have to invite his brother. I don’t really have a problem with it. Like I’ve seen on here before a lot of these kids enjoy going on visits and he probably just wants his brother with him.

        • Fear The Magic

          Thanks Zack

  • Atlantasooner

    Deshon Elliott on film is very impressive. The only issue is what position does he try and stay at LB and add weight or do you try and move him to SS where he also plays.

    Dahu Green probably high points passes as well as any big WR I’ve seen lately.

    • Super K

      Good observation on Green. Broyles basically said the exact same thing.

  • bjwalker82

    I can’t have a football alum of my High school going anywhere but OU. Come on Josh, don’t you dare jump ship! :D

  • Shifty

    Dahu reminds me of another Green

  • Sooner Sam

    Really sad news about Metoyer. I remember watching that spring scrimmage touchdown video over and over again.

  • Leroy Jenkins

    I watched DaMarkus Lodge from Cedar Hill play vs Allen in the state championship. I’d say him and Dahu Green look almost identical in terms of size. Lodge might have a bit more speed & elusiveness, but on the whole they both look great. I’d assume Lodge plays against better competition so that raises his profile…but seeing that Green just got his first offer today is really surprising. Hope OU offers him soon.

      Allen and Cedar Hill played each other this season but it wasn’t the State Championship. Cedar Hill played Katy for the 5A Division 2 Championship.

      • Leroy Jenkins

        Touché soonerborn. It was Katy, Allen played that team near Houston. Good call.

    Anybody else catch Joe Schad’s tweet? (https://twitter.com/schadjoe/status/433724791208812544) That’s right. The NCAA is proposing that offenses can’t snap the ball until play clock reaches 29 seconds or less. This is to limit the # of plays for “player safety.”

    Troy Calhoun, chair of the committee & head coach at Air Force, said, “This rules change is being made to enhance student-athlete safety
    by guaranteeing a small window for both teams to substitute,” said
    Calhoun. “As the average number of plays per game has increased…we felt like it was time to act in the interests of
    protecting our student-athletes.” (Source: http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/football-rules-committee-slightly-adjusts-targeting-rule-defensive)

    Interestingly, someone on Reddit submitted this interesting 2012 article (http://cfbmatrix.com/speed-may-kill-but-slow-gets-you-hurt/), which states that faster pace doesn’t necessarily lead to more injuries. Not only that, but “slower” play may actually lead to more injuries. In fact, the ‘slowest’ conference in 2012? The SEC. The highest rate of injury per play? The SEC.

    I know this isn’t about OU recruiting, spring camp news, etc., but if this rule would certainly change how OU runs the offense. This is clearly intended for teams like OU, Oregon, TAMU, & OSU, and will likely benefit traditional SEC defenses. And one more quick question: What happens during last minute drives, like in Bedlam? Or if we’re down by 14 with 5 minutes left & we do no huddle?

      This has the same bad smell as esecpn.

      • Leroy Jenkins

        Hahaha so the Brainiacs literally just posted this as an article, and I just now noticed. Oops.

        • Sooner Ray

          Haven’t read it yet but I did see something posted on twitter earlier, think it was Jordan. Hey, don’t feel guilty, way to stay on top of things!

    • Indy_sooner

      This one has a strong smell of Sabanism. I would be interested to see said data correlating the number of plays to proportional increase in injuries. This one is just plain silly.

      • Fear The Magic

        Sabanism…that was my thoughts exactly when I read it.

    Louisville will not be Green’s only D1 offer. He’s very long, but doesn’t look gangly. He seems to be deceptively fast because of his stride length and as somebody has already mentioned he does a great job of catching the ball at it’s high point. More offers will come for this kid.

    • Doobie74OU

      Totally agree! Love the “doesn’t look gangly” comment! Real SMOOTH for a Big Receiver.

  • Doobie74OU

    I KNOW I’ll get hammered for mentioning little brother (sorry!) here but I have a feeling watching Green’s film he could put on a little weight his senior year and be a Dez Bryant style receiver. Not Blazing Fast but always seems to be running to daylight, Strong Hands, Physical at the High Point, Catches Everything. Awesome Redzone target!
