ou-twitter-avatar1 Signing Day Open Post | Wednesday Feb. 5th (Updated 8:42 pm)

- Frison: It is just after midnight and I’ve been on the phone with a number of people this evening. Everything we we’re hearing on Kenyon Frison was great up until my final conversation with someone that I just hung up with. Nothing in the conversation negates the fact that Kenyon could sign with OU, but it tempered my confidence.

What I was told is that as of about five hours ago (around 7:00 or 8:00 pm Tuesday), Oklahoma said they were 50/50 on Kenyon Frison. They also said that Frison’s mother is pro ASU. I’m not sure if it’s the distance, the person I talked to did not know, but did tell me that Kenyon’s mother favors ASU for some reason. If it is for distance reasons,then one would have to think they’d prefer Utah as well.

Hopefully this one goes OU’s way because, as we all know, the LT position is one of great need. Still feeling decent but just not as confident as I was earlier this evening. Either way I wanted to pass along the information to those of you who are awake or who will be up bright and early in the morning. We should find out Frison’s decision in the morning.

Clark: I also have a couple pieces of information on Deondre Clark that I can share. The first bit of information was the reason for our confidence earlier in the evening. What we were told is that Dre’s mother is basically pushing really hard for Dre to stay in Oklahoma. And by “pushing” it sounds like it’s almost not an option for him to leave. We’ve been told that she feels it is in his best interest to stay close to home. At least that’s the way the information was relayed to me. On the other hand, I do know how Oklahoma felt about the situation as of about three hours ago and they were still not certain they had him.

(UPDATED 7:27 am): OL Alex Dalton has signed! OL Jonathan Alvarez! RB Samaje Perine has signed! LB Tay Evans has signed!

(UPDATED 7:30 am): Quick: Perhaps should have mentioned this last night but our latest on Quick was all good for OU!

(UPDATED 7:32 am): Garnet: Our latest on Courtney Garnett was all good for OU. Our latest on Frison and Garnett is listed above.

(UPDATED 7:33 am): LB/DB Vontre McQuinnie has signed!

(UPDATED 7:39 am): DB Marcus Green has signed!

(UPDATED 7:46 am): DB Steven Parker has signed! Talk to Parker’s father last night and he said committing was a huge weight off Steven’s shoulder. Said Steven went off for 22 points last night against Union and his father felt like it had something to do with Steven feeling relieved!

(UPDATED 7:49 am): TE Carson Meier has signed! We are huge fans of Carson’s game. He has the ability to play the true blocking TE role but is also an exceptional athlete in open space as a WR. Could be a very dangerous weapon for the Sooners!

(UPDATED 7:55 am): DL Courtney Garnett sticks with the Sooners and signs his NLI! Garnett has two of the most important qualities in a B gap player, quick first step and size.

- (UPDATED 8:07 am): DL Dwayne Orso has signed! Dwayne is one of our favorite commits. We wrote about him extensively when Oklahoma first got involved with this huge DL! The 6’5 255 lb athlete is just scratching the surface of what he can become.

(UPDATED 8:15 am): WR Jeffery Mead has signed! Great agility for such a long athlete!

(UPDATED 8:21 am): According to Brandon Gurney Kenyon Frison will sign with Oklahoma! BIG TIME PICKUP at a position of need!

(UPDATED 8:27 am): WR Mark Andrews has signed!

(UPDATED 8:32 am): Tito Windham has signed! Love this kid!

- (UPDATED 9:00 am): OT Kenyon Frison has signed! And with that NLI OU fills a huge need at LT. Such a major pick up. Can’t stress enough.

(UPDATED 9:07 am): WR Dallis Todd has signed!

(UPDATED 9:10 am): OG Natrell Curtis has signed!

(UPDATED 9:33 am): DB Jordan Thomas has signed!

- (UPDATED 9:45 am): Got a great note from a Brainiac buddy about how the coaches reacted to the Kenyon Frison commitment this morning. He said the coaches were “partying like it was Christmas”. Also said that multiple coaches said that getting Kenyon was “big time” and he is “one of the biggest gems of the class”.

(UPDATED 9:48 am): Stud RB and recruiter Joe Mixon has signed!

(UPDATED 9:53 am): OL Joseph Paul has signed! JY believes he can play RT!

(UPDATED 10:50 am): I was chatting with Steven Parker’s father last night and we got to talking about coach Gus Malzahn. He mentioned something really cool. He said that after Steven committed to Oklahoma coach Malzahn got in touch with Steven and congratulated him on the commitment and thanked him for the opportunity to recruit him. He said that he wished he had recruited him earlier because he said Steven was exactly what they are looking for in a player. Just thought that was such a classy thing for coach Malzahn to do and it matches up with everything my Alabama coaching friends say about him. He’s going to give coach Saban fits recruiting that state in the future.

- (UPDATED 10:58 am): Though this was really interesting. Coach Bobby Jack Wright says that Devante Bond will probably start out as an inside linebacker.

(UPDATED 11:21 am): Big boss LB Curtis Bolton has signed!

- (UPDATED 11:28 am): Per @OKCPS_Athletics, Deondre Clark will announce tomorrow at 2 pm.

– (UPDATED 12:24 pm): Miciah Quick confirms that he has committed to Oklahoma! Sooners are 3 for 3 today! Last target is Deondre Clark!

- (UPDATED 1:26 pm): POSSIBLE SIGNING DAY SURPRISE – Well it sounds like Oklahoma is indeed working on getting OT Orlando Brown. I asked a direct source whether Oklahoma was going to get him and the source said, I don’t know yet. I took that to mean that Oklahoma is working on it. Also, checked with another source who said it is indeed a possibility.

(UPDATED 2:14 pm): Oklahoma has indeed picked up big OT Orlando Brown Jr!

(UPDATED 2:44 pm): Soonerscoop is reporting that Deondre Clark has not yet signed his NLI.

(UPDATED 3:32 pm): We don’t have any direct information on Clark but as Jordan said below…it sounds like Oklahoma fans can move on. Not entirely sure what the deal was but the original reporter that Clark is headed to LSU is certainly reputable.

(UPDATED 5:33 pm): Nothing really to report just wanted to state the obvious. This Dre Clark situation seems peculiar. If Dre did indeed send the NLI and specifically asked that the information not be released then it would seem LSU should have been able to manage that. If it did not send the signed NLI then that’s really horrible.

(UPDATED 8:42 pm): We’ve been told that George Schroder, the journalist who reported that Deondre Clark had faxed his NLI was only reporting what he was told that he was allowed to report by people inside LSU.

    Nice. A little midnight snack before I go to sleep. Keep up the good work.

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Feels great knowing we have a great shot with 4 really good recruits heading into NSD. All we can do now is sit back and watch how it all plays out.

  • Gary Jackson

    The Deondre Clark situation makes me wonder how happy he will be at OU if his Mom puts that much pressure for him to stay close to home.

    • beavmiester

      My thoughts exactly. It’d be great to have him, but it makes you wonder if his performance would suffer if his heart wasn’t completely in it.

      • Indy_sooner

        I doubt Coach Stoops would put up with the dead weight. That being said, they are genuinely recruiting the kid to play and I don’t think he drops off.

  • Jordan Esco

    Alex Dalton is in.

    • beavmiester

      Really excited about this kid (monster). I watched his video again last night. He’s very aggressive and drives defenses back until he hears the whistle blow.

  • Jackson Watts

    Alex Dalton has made the Sooner nation proud. Welcome to the greatest university on the planet.

  • Jordan Esco

    Jonathan Alvarez is in

    • soonerinks

      Love our class, but gotta admit Samaje is the one I am really jacked about. He could be the gem of the whole class!

      • sracer

        Couldn’t agree more this one I believe will be the best.

    I’m sure Clark will be happy when Sooner Nation embraces him and he settles in to Headington Hall.

    • Super K

      Totally agree.

  • Jordan Esco

    Marcus Green is in

  • Sooner Ray

    Guess we should have recruited Frison’s mother.

        You won’t find anyone that despises ND more than me.

        To the Fightin’ Frenchies I say DEAL WITH IT.

  • Jackson Watts

    OU’s offense seemed more deadly when a TE was used on a regular basis. I hope Meier and Knight become the best of friends on the gridiron.

    • Sooner Ray

      Don’t forget Knight to Bell.

  • Indy_sooner

    Garnett has signed with the good guys!!! BOOM!!

      That silly Dean-o, 50/50 no shot, 51/49, ours to lose!

    • http://www.owassolivingmag.com/ Mark Evans

      There is a 51% chance Dean-O tries too hard NOT to sound like a homer.

    • JSam

      Best comment on his Twitter: “Looks like you need better sources.”

  • Jordan Esco

    Dwayne Orso is in (I know K is excited on this one)

    • Super K

      yes sir!

    • lovethemsooners

      I am too. Think he’s gonna make a lot of SEC schools sorry they didn’t go after him.

  • Jordan Esco

    The self righteousness of James Hale might hit an epic level today

    • EasTex

      Who is this Hale person?

      • http://www.owassolivingmag.com/ Mark Evans

        It does every NSD Jordan and you don’t want to know EasTex. He is the reason I left 247 after many years as a paid member. His arrogance and thin skin was more than I could take let alone pay for.

        • EasTex

          Thanks, never been to 247.

    • Jordan Esco

      Just to clarify, those are simply their h.s. numbers. Not necessarily the number they’ll wear at OU.

      • Indy_sooner

        Gotcha. Pretty cool, though

        • Jordan Esco

          Oh, agreed. Just didn’t want anyone to be confused.

    Mead in

    • Jordan Esco

      You’re treading in dangerous waters one-upping me, sir ;)

      • Sooner Ray

        Had to try it to see if you were paying attention!

        • Jordan Esco

          You know it, this is MY Super Bowl

  • Jordan Esco

    Jeffrey Mead is in

  • Jackson Watts

    I really like how Oklahoma is getting some solid in-state recruits. Oklahoma born players have the Sooner DNA that helps build a solid foundation.

  • dahldennsull

    Frison in 10 minutes, was feeling good until you guys told me momma was in the ASU corner. Whole time I thought we had the family and that usually seals the deal. I don’t think in all my years, I’ve ever heard a kids mom wanting him to go to ASU, especially with the snake coach they have out there

    • Sooner Ray

      Ain’t got momma, Ain’t got nuttin’

    • Jackson Watts

      Snake Oil is some additive elixir. To counteract the effects of the said snake oil, one must display multiple Big XII trophies, offer a winning program, and have a Bob Stoops name tag. We got this.

  • soonerfan4life07

    Frison to OU!

    • dahldennsull

      BOOM #801

      • soonerinks

        Whew, this one we needed badly.

    • soonerborn

      BOOMER SOONER!

  • SoonerfanTU

    Great news on Garnett. I thought we’d end up with him, even after the ND stuff, but it was far from a certainty.

  • Jordan Esco
  • Sooner Ray

    BOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jordan Esco

    Mark Andrews is in.

  • Big Higg

    Yes!!! Frison, Garnett, & Parker! Lookin good so far!

  • Boomer4life

    Any word on Quick yet?

    • dahldennsull

      Not deciding until 3:30 (5:30 central time)

    • Doobie74OU

      PRAYING PRAYING PRAYING ! LOL!

    • Ed Cotter

      Gonna be a little bit for the Cali guys……it’s only 6:30am here! Wait on it!

  • Jordan Esco

    Tito Windham is in.

  • Isaac Wright

    FRISON!!!!!!

  • Indy_sooner

    Sounded like Frison made his decision a long time ago. Utah vs. OU… easy choice

  • Adrian

    Told you all we would get all 4!

  • http://www.owassolivingmag.com/ Mark Evans

    17 players from 9 different states in the bag before 9am CST! BOOM!(ER)

    • http://www.owassolivingmag.com/ Mark Evans

      Frison makes it 18 players from 10 states. Amazing!!

  • Sooner Ray

    If we land Quick and everyone expected, where do you see us land in the national rank?

    • Jordan Esco

      In the 10-12 range, depending on the respective service

  • Jordan Esco
  • Leroy Jenkins

    I always thought Mark Andrews was a guy not mentioned enough (at least not lately). He could be a really good one at OU and it’s awesome he’s been committed for so long.

  • Sooner Ray

    Is Frison still doing paper work? Got quiet on him.

    • Jordan Esco

      I’m sure he’s just taking it all in. The fax will come thru eventually.

      • Sooner Ray

        Thanks

  • Jordan Esco
  • Boomer4life

    Jordan, do you seen any unforeseen commitments today? Anything out of left field?

    • Jordan Esco

      Nope. Other than Clark and Quick, I think all goes as planned.

  • Jordan Esco
  • Leroy Jenkins

    I was gonna ask earlier where I could stream NSD, but it’s already happening in the comments section! Great job y’all, A+ coverage and analysis.

    • Jordan Esco

      OU is streaming their coverage, but for the first year ever it’s not free.

      • Leroy Jenkins

        I’m sure I’m not the only person who says, “Yeah…but I’ll just stick with the Brainiacs. No contest.”

    • Doobie74OU

      Yeah I got OU Insider up and Sooner Sports up and they always have the info here 1st. THERE IS ONLY 1 OKLAHOMA! and THERE IS ONLY 1 FOOTBALL BRANIACS!

  • Jordan Esco

    Kenyon Frison is (officially) in.

    • Sooner Ray

      YEAH BABY!

    • Leroy Jenkins

      Awesome. Do you think he’s our biggest priority this NSD?

      • Jordan Esco

        Based on need, I’d say yes. Though there are arguments that can be made for a number of kids.

  • SoonerfanTU

    What time is Clark doing his thing? Do I have time for a quick power nap?

    • Jordan Esco

      Was previously scheduled for 2:30, but he just tweeted he didn’t have school so that time may change.

    • Sonny Schovanec
      • Doobie74OU

    Live BOOM! OU NSD recruiting coverage on Fox Sports Southwest NOW! Chris Plank and Teddy Lehman hosting.

      Thank God. I was watching the ESPN coverage and was getting nauseous.

      • Sooner Ray

        Get out of there Leroy!

        • Leroy Jenkins

          I work from home, so I’m putting off work for a couple hours. Priorities, priorities.

      • wardor65

        You mean ESEC

        • Leroy Jenkins

          Haha didn’t someone on here say “E(SEC)PN” once? That should be trademarked.

          • j l

            Ive always called it SECSPN

      • http://www.owassolivingmag.com/ Mark Evans

        Let me guess Leroy, it was slightly SECentric coverage?

        • Leroy Jenkins

          Slightly SEC, Michigan, USC/UCLA, FSU. On Fox Sports Southwest they’re all about OU right now, Mike Stoops currently talking about Steven Parker.

  • pitbull17

    This may be my one chance to comment for the next few hours, but my Lawd! I’m so happy I got to check this site! Awesome job as always guys! If OU can get the Cali kids in I think this could be one of the best NSD’s for OU in quite some time!
    BOOMER!!!

    Don’t these kids no that I can not get any work done until they all sign their letters. My boss is going to get pissed off if they don’t get those things signed soon.

    • Sooner Ray

      I just keep my boss updated!, He’s a fan.

    • Doobie74OU

      I brought my Boss a half gallon of Crown and 2 – 22oz Coops DNR Beers and told him I would be a bit busy this morning!

      • Sooner Ray

        You’re hired!

  • dahldennsull

    7 am west coast time… waiting on that Joe Mixon fax haha

  • Leroy Jenkins

    On Fox Sports Southwest they just said, “Sooners lose 70% of their rushing yards and 66% of their passing yards to graduation.” Just an interesting stat to throw out there.

    Mike Stoops interview on there right now.

    • paganpink

      fyi- For those on DISH it is 412-06 which is way at the top of the dial! BOOMER!

  • Randy White

    When will most of these kids enroll and begin workouts? I’m old and can’t remember that far back. :)

    • dahldennsull

      Summer, June if they can get enrolled in summer school and such and don’t have to take any HS credits to qualify.

      can’t do anything with coaches, only S&C staff but can get team organized 7 on 7 to help young guys learn routes and defenses. Doesn’t help lineman as much, but just getting these HS lineman in the weight room is helpful enough.

      Not to mention our new dorms cafeteria and nutrition specialist, these kids will be eating better than they ever have and working out better than they ever have

      • Randy White

        Thx!

  • bjwalker82

    Bolton, Mixon, Thomas and Paul are the only currently committed that we are waiting on right?

    • Jordan Esco

      Yep

      • Gary Robbins

    Bill Bedenbaugh interview on now. On Frison: “I think the kid has unlimited ability and unlimited potential. I think the kid can be as good as anyone I’ve ever coached up to this point.”

    Added: “I think he’s our future at left tackle.”

  • EasTex

    Big cyber hug to the OU coaching staff.
    They have worked hard for the results we are seeing. Lots of hours away from their own families, lots of miles and bad meals.

    • SoonerfanTU

      Taco Bueno is not a bad meal. Come on man. :)

      • EasTex

        Nossir, but convenience store microwave burritos are rough on the innards.

  • HeathC

    I know that Quick and Dre will be later today or possibly tomorrow but is there any word on Bolton?

    • soonerwink

      Bolton is in according to McQuistian on Scoop

      • bjwalker82

        I saw that but until it’s on Soonersports.com…. It just ain’t true.

        Ain’t, that’s right I used it.

    • Jordan Esco

      No word yet on Bolton, but no reason to worry IMO. Just working on west coast time ;)

  • lebval15

    Don’t want to sound greedy, but just curious if there is any talk at all about any surprise gets today?

    • bjwalker82

      Just possibly Clark

  • Randy White

    Maybe this has been answered and if I’m sorry but besides Mixon any true freshman expected to see the field?

    • Jordan Esco

      See the field and significant playing time are obviously two very different things. OU tends to play a lot of freshman on special teams and/or sparingly in games. Don’t tend to redshirt a lot of kids in recent years.

      So to that point I’d say Meier, Parker, Perine, Flowers, Andrews, Todd, Frison, Mixon are the most likely IMO.

      • Randy White

        Thx! I thought lineman tended to need some time with Scotty and learning technique from their position coach. Figured they redshirted but forgot about teams.

    • Jerry Reid

      I think all will see the field but play on it I would say possibly Parker, perine, and maybe some of the lineman. Depending on their work ethics of course.

      • ToatsMcGoats

        LOL

    • lebval15

      Gotta think one or two of these big receivers will see some PT

  • Billy Jackson

    YES!!!!!

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Mixon said on air 30 min ago that Quick will sign with OU. High fives all around everyone.

  • lebval15

    Wow, Tennessee has 33 commits this year. Gotta love that SEC oversigning…

    • KellyB

      That’s a lot of players they have to pay :-)

    • Ryan

      In their defense, they just got all of their restrictions lifted by the ncaa earlier this year, have alot of scholarships to fill

  • SCSooner87

    Any chance one of you guys can link the write ups you guys have done on the signees here or in another post?

    • Jerry Reid

      That’s a lot of linking! Lol!

      • SCSooner87

        I don’t think they’ve done write-ups on all of them, and I know know I’m not the only one that joined the Brainiac party a little late in the recruiting season and may have missed some of them.

  • Doobie74OU

    Hey Jordon or K any news on how the school closings in OKC will affect Clark? Will he still announce today?

    • Jordan Esco

      His coach has said things are TBD. So we don’t know at the moment.

      • Doobie74OU

        OK thanks!

        • SCSooner87

          Just noticed that most of them are on the side, but I’m not sure if I’m missing any more write-ups haha.

  • KellyB

    You know OK State has a great recruiting class. Tyreek Hill will give teams fits

    • Leroy Jenkins

      Him and Devon Thomas for sure.

      • KellyB

        Not exactly Thurman Thomas & Barry Sanders, but they’ll be a dynamic 1-2 punch. I’m not a Pokes fan but you gotta give credit where credit’s due

  • Josh

    So excited for Tay Evans!! 2X State Champ out of Allen and a Sooner Legacy!! Absolutely AWESOME kid!!

  • Gary Robbins

    I’m old and forgetful who are we waiting on now? I told the wife no lifting weights before noon. Yep 12 ounces of aluminum cans at a time. P.S. didn’t mention what time zone. So far very good day for Sooners. A big Boom to 405 (our coaches) and thanks to everyone at Football Brainiacs.

    • Doobie74OU

      I’m pretty sure Bolton is the only committed guy we are waiting on. Also waiting decisions from Clark and Quick!

    • bjwalker82

      Curtis Bolton.

      Also two potentials in Deondre Clark and Michiah Quick

      • Gary Robbins

        Thanks

    • Super K

      Thank you Gary!

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Great article on Jonathan Alvarez’s signing day today. His mom broke down in tears after her son signed with OU.

    http://newsok.com/ou-signing-day-jonathan-alvarezs-signing-with-sooners-moves-mom-to-tears/article/3930740?custom_click=rss&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

    • Super K

      yep great stuff!

  • bjwalker82

    Bolton just tweeted:

    “Saved the best for last”

    • bjwalker82

      Just tweeted that he faxed his letter in! BOOMER!

  • Fear The Magic

    Is this a thread or a novel? lol

  • Jordan Esco
    • Jackson Watts

      Boom!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

    And there it is…

  • HeathC

    Will Quick be announcing his decision on live TV anywhere?

  • Jordan Esco

    Curtis Bolton is in

    • dahldennsull

      And the sooner sports website still has the player logo with ‘coming
      soon’ on it. I know the previous years you could track it and see if
      they had an extra spot or not on the page, teasing something the
      coaching staff might know.

      • Jordan Esco

        That’s been like that all day. I don’t think it means anything, but you’re right about previous years so who knows.

  • Jordan Esco

    See the latest update above, Clark now announcing tomorrow (Thurs.)

    • Jackson Watts

      What’s up with the 2pm time slot?

      • Jordan Esco

        Not sure other than that’s what was planned for today.

      • EasTex

        Ice/snow day?

    • Doobie74OU

      Alright Sooner Nation we got about 26 hrs and 20 min to work on Clark and his lovely mother to get them convinced that “THERE IS ONLY ONE!

  • Jackson Watts
  • Jared William Reininger

    Just saw an article that says Quick has officially picked OU.

  • SoonerfanTU

    Did Tristan Hill end up signing with Georgia Southern? Was it a tough choice over the Vandy offer?

    • Jordan Esco

      He did indeed.

  • Doobie74OU

    This just in “There have been rumors that University of Oklahoma Fax Machine has melted down from overuse but after talking to school officials and Coach Stoops we are here to report that it is just suffering from exhaustion. We are pumping it full of lubrication and giving it IV’s and we are confident it will be able to finish the day by receiving 2 more NLOI from Deondre Clark and Michiah Quick!”

  • http://www.owassolivingmag.com/ Mark Evans

    BOOM! LB Curtis Bolton is in the fold. Only Clark and Quick remain…

  • ccmosaic

    Why would Clark wait until 2 pm Thursday? Sounds to me he is really trying to talk momma in letting him go out of state. My question is does Stoops and co. cut him loose or do they hold out hope?

    • Jordan Esco

      School was cancelled today. Kid wants to have an announcement ceremony for the only time he’ll get to do something like this in his life.

      Not sure what the problem is w/ him waiting (regardless of who he picks).

  • Jordan Esco
  • Jordan Esco
  • Sooner_Denver

    Fresno Bee is reporting “Quick to sign with Oklahoma”……………Boom

    http://www.fresnobee.com/2014/02/05/3751317/college-football-recruiting-central.html

    • Jordan Esco

      We know. Just trying to let the kid have his moment even though others out there are trying to ruin it for him.

  • Jordan Esco

    Longtime OU target Tee Shepard reportedly flips from Miss. State to Ole Miss. We’ll see if he can qualify this time. Kid has been on a crazy ride since signing w/ Notre Dame.

    • dahldennsull

      I’m just glad that it’s (hopefully) over… but just as soon as I say that, he won’t qualify, will play JUCO in the fall, and be a December recruit again and our fans will come back asking once more…

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

    Greg Biggins ‏@GregBiggins 3m

    Fresno WR Michiah Quick has signed with #Oklahoma #ScoutNSD

    Greg Biggins ‏@GregBiggins 2m

    Quick was supposed to sign at 3:00 but decided to get it done early #Sooners

    • dahldennsull

      Just an FYI, it seems set it stone but he’s not on OU’s official page yet, so hasn’t faxed anything in

  • kt-raida

    K I have a question maybe you or Jordan can answer .if clark was planning to sign with LSU wouldn’t he just send the papers in instead of waiting to have a press conference tomorrow sounds like in Oklahoma win

  • SamSooner

    247 has it that Quick signed with OU.

  • Indy_sooner

    YESSIR!!! Welcome Mr. Quick

  • bjwalker82

    Sucks that someone stole Michiah Quick’s thunder. Who would do that to a kid??

    • dahldennsull

      Dirty reporters who don’t follow the kid’s recruitment, get to know him or anything, and only cares that he is the one with the name under the headline breaking the news.

  • ccmosaic

    Joe Mixon per twitter is reporting that Quick has sent his loi to OU. Quick was not real happy that his friend let the cat out of the bag before he announced.
    My Brutthhhaaa @ItsQuicker Signed With Ou Lets get It!!!!!! We Bouta Turn Up!!!! We To The Zone Or Nah?! #Boomer
    Quick’s response – I wonder who put me out there like that lol! Ain’t no secret now! #LetsGetIt

  • Jackson Watts

    Coach Scmitt will work out those loose lips of Mr. Mixon. :-)

  • Isaac Wright

    Jordan have u heard anything on Orlando Brown because Ryan narrow predicted a switch from Tennessee…. If Tennessee if going to cut down on recruits or he doesn’t sign does he have a legit chance at commiting

    • bjwalker82

      I was looking at that. Looks like he’s going the JUCO route. Maybe his allegiance switch to OU is more about that… Just a guess though

    • Jordan Esco

      I asked K, he’s hitting some ppl up to see if there’s anything to it. At this point I’d say it’s pretty unlikely, but if we can get anything more solid we’ll be sure to post it here.

      • Gary Robbins

        I was reading earlier today while searching as to how Tennessee could sign so many recruits. Came across an article somewhere (old age sucks) which said his grades were holding him back for what it’s worth.

  • SoonerfanTU

    Best OU recruiting class (not necessarily rankings-wise) since win? I have a good feeling that we’ll look back on this class with great fondness. Just seems like a really good core group of players that are going to win a lot of games for OU.

  • ccmosaic

    Any word on this Orlando Brown situation? Hearing rumors that there may be a possible flip? Any truth to the rumors?

  • Sooner Ray

    Haven’t seen anything official on Quick, is he sending letter after presser?

    • Jordan Esco

      It’s all but official. Just waiting on the fax.

      • Sooner Ray

        Been a good day tater!

  • soonerborn

    24/7 has 4* OT Orlando Brown flipping to OU… Whatcha hearing on this?????????

    • Super K

      Asked a source inside and they are working on it but they aren’t certain they are going to get him yet.

      • soonerborn

        Love this site! You guys are the best! Would love to add another big guy if we can…

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

          He’s more than “big”. Haha…….

  • Jordan Esco

    Michiah Quick is in

    • dahldennsull

      With the ‘coming soon’ sign still up haha, guess we will find out

  • SamSooner

    Jordan, other than Clark, who are we waiting on?

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Can we post YouTube videos on the comment wall? Was going to post Orlando Brown highlight tape, if possible.

    • Super K

      Sure!

  • Sooner Ray

    Would we even have room for Brown if it were to happen or would he take Dre’s spot??

    • Jackson Watts

      You take them both and figure it out later.

    • Super K

      Yes we have room. And they would take both.

  • Jordan Esco
  • Adrian

    Thought it would be interesting to mention that Montgomery was at Dwayne Orso`s school for signing. Really trying to build a relationship with that coach and school to get more recruits out of Louisiana

  • http://www.TheFootballBrainiacs.com/ JY

    If we were able to pull this off and get Orlando Brown, that guy’s a monster. 6’8″ 365 and can move. Think a slightly more athletic version of Phil Loadholt. Then stuff Torrance Marshall’s attitude into a 6’8″ 365 frame. If he gets in and works, he’ll be a first round draft pick in a few years. You’d expect guys that tall to struggle with technique and pad level, and he does a bit, but he just swallows guys up. He IMPACTS people when he hits them, and man he’s got what you can’t teach in size and athleticism. There are a couple of times where you think you’re watching a much smaller player because of the athleticism.

    • dahldennsull

      Whoa… you are right, I thought he might be a little heavy footed, get beat by quick guys, but you just said a more athletic Loadholt with Marshall’s attitude? Umm would that be Orlando Pace?

      • http://www.TheFootballBrainiacs.com/ JY

        Not sure if I’m ready to anoint him just yet by calling him a future outland trophy winner, but if he’s a worker, he could be a great one.

        • Leroy Jenkins

          So would we be looking to place him in a prep school if OU was an option for him? How does is that different than going JUCO?

          • Gary Robbins

            I was reading on a Tennessee site somewhere that his grades were holding him back, for what it’s worth. Time to leave Happy Hour approaches.

        • dahldennsull

          Oh i agree… was just saying, that’s what you described… maybe you need to back off your description as well haha I mean Phil Loadholt defintely had some holes in his game, and was still a 2nd round draft pick. So add athleticism and a mean demeanor, that’s a 1st rounder

      • dahldennsull

        Also, if so, why the 3* rating? I know I know they get stuff wrong, but he was evaluated, offered by everyone, maybe it’s the grade risk we are seeing come up now? A little too much bad weight as a senior?

        • http://www.TheFootballBrainiacs.com/ JY

          Not any bad weight I can see. Who knows…
          This guy is a huge steal. HOLY COW!

  • Jordan Esco

    Sooners announce signing of Orlando Brown Jr.!

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      What a day our coaches are having!

    • Sooner Ray

      Just hope he can qualify! Him and Frison…..WOW.

      • Jordan Esco

        Yep. It’s in doubt at the moment, but his talent justifies whatever risk there is in taking him.

    • bjwalker82

      Question is, will he qualify? I guess if he doesn’t it doesn’t matter.

    • bmrsnr

      So is he going prep?

    • beavmiester

      Wow. Cherry on top.

      • soonerthunder

        Biggest cherry I’ve ever seen

  • Adrian

    We got Orlando!! Money Squad!

    • Adrian

      This Tenessee game is looking huge now. Their class is loaded

  • lulzer

    Orlando Brown…NLI is in Norman! BOOM!!!

  • Justin

    Orlando Brown just signed NLI to play for OU!

    • Randy White

      Wow! Sugar Bowl goodies!!

  • Sooner Ray

    I wonder if that famous sports channel now moves us up right under the last sec team?

    • SoonerfanTU

      Don’t be crazy.

    • http://www.TheFootballBrainiacs.com/ JY

      We have our moments ;)

      • Leroy Jenkins

        Isn’t Orlando Brown, Jr. the son of the ex-NFL player Orlando Brown?

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

          He is.

      • Gary Robbins

        Made 2 crazy statements/requests recently. One is what would happen if we went 4 for 4 and kept Garnett. The other was for a Big rabbit out of the hat trick (suggested) Patrick Au. Orlando Brown is close enough. I said I would be happy as a humpback whale in mating time! So it’s next door for the moonshine and on the road in n/e Oklahoma for a whalette. Maybe I should wait till Mr. Clark sends in his LOI. And yes they do have a big blue whale at an park in Catoosa, Ok. or they used to. Would that be a crime? Surely things can’t get any better. Way to go OU coaches.

        • Sooner Ray

          The whale is still there but they frown on you bringing your own shine. Not that I would know!

          • Gary Robbins

            You’re right-meant 7-up!

  • Gladdman

    Couple of sites saying Orlando Brown’s LOI is in.

    • Jordan Esco

      Kinda like this one ;)

      • Sooner Ray

        Better step your game up Esco!!

  • Justin

    I realize it’s a little late, but these signings are first being reported by the official OU Football twitter feed @OU_Football.

    • Jordan Esco

      Not true, I’ve beat them on a couple today ;)

      • pitbull17

        That you have my friend.

  • Indy_sooner

    H-O-L-E-E Crap. Huge Pickup from Mr Brown!! That offer list is ridiculous… almost as big as Mixon’s lol

  • pitbull17

    Hahahaha, all these other “Sooner Sites” need to take a look at FB! They’ve smoked the competition all day long and for that matter have nailed every prediction they’ve made over the past couple of months! These boys are doing big things guys!

  • Jordan Esco

    USA Today’s George Schroeder reporting that Deondre Clark has signed w/ LSU

    • Sooner Ray

      May be best if his heart isn’t with us.

    • pitbull17

      Can’t win em all. But look at how successful today was!

    • Sooner_Ace

      not to sound crass, but his loss imo

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      Don’t think he was ever with us to begin with. Oh well……

    • WATERHEAD

      The Brown announcement more than makes up for Clark going to LSU IMOP. The last thing we need is a bunch of attitude at OU- was never a big fan.

  • Shelby is a Patriot

    It’s Christmas :D

    • Sooner Ray

      Hang the stockings!

  • Cory Reedy

    WHAT. A. DAY. TO BE A SOONER!
    WOW

  • 38Special

    According to this description, we may have just signed the greatest player of all time.

    • Jordan Esco

      What description?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      Haha…..somebody posted Quicks profile breakdown on Brown’s page. Returing punts at 6-7 340lbs would be something to see!!!

  • Jordan Esco

    Hold up, Josh McCuistion saying Clark’s coach has said he has NOT signed his NLI

    • Sooner Ray

      That boy should take a couple days off and clear his head. Think he’s getting a lot of pressure.

    • Jackson Watts

      I wonder if he is telling Josh M, a small fib in order to have a better signing ceremony tomorrow.

  • Ed Cotter

    Getting Big Orlando Brown and losing out on Clark is a win for the Sooners in my book. Good luck to Dre in the Bayou.

  • Guest

    lulz.

  • Gregg Cobb

    Come on Deondre, make this a clean sweep!!! We need you baby!

  • soonerinks

    Saw on Landthieves that Orlando Brown has signed LOI to OU. Not sure if he will qualify but man he has an impressive offer list.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      Haven’t seen anything concrete that says he has academic issues. Appears to be more a matter of Tenn having 34 players and being full on NSD than anything.

      • Jordan Esco

        He has grade issues.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

          Oh he does? Tenn has stricter academic requirements than OU???

  • Josh

    Watched the videos of our OL commits on the sooners web site and those boys are big and nasty!! They are some block finishing suckers!!

  • Jordan Esco

    I’m not saying it is or it isn’t, but just bare in mind this Clark stuff could be all about maintaining any “excitement” for his still planned announcement tomorrow.

    • 38Special

      I think that’s exactly what happened. Miles calls him, says, “Hey man, I know your school was closed today, but we need to know something. Send us your letter, we won’t say anything until you announce it tomorrow.” Clark sends the letter. George Schroeder who is in the LSU office today, sees the fax, and tweets it out. Clark’s get pissed, start saying nothing’s final yet. LSU, still sticking to not announcing, don’t put it on their website.

  • Jackson Watts

    David Ching
    ‏@ESPNChing
    LSU spokesman says Deondre Clark’s NLI is in fact here and has cleared through compliance. So there’s that…

    • HeathC

      LSU is not showing him on their list yet

  • Sooner Ray

    What the hell are we gonna talk about now?

    • dahldennsull

      Spring practice starts in 32 days? haha

    • ToatsMcGoats

      That other site does the countdown to football thing…it was cool, but, I’m sure these guys can do it better!

      • Sooner Ray

        Oh I’ve got faith in these guys. I don’t think they expected this kind of activity and it’s early in the game. It’s gonna ROCK!

  • 38Special

    David Ching @ESPNChing
    Update from LSU spokesman on Clark: “We’re not announcing him today.”

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      I think maybe we’re getting lucky with the Clark fiasco in him going to LSU. The clusterf*ck is strong with this kid…..

      • dahldennsull

        replace the word “kid” with “family” and you got that right

      • Sooner Ray

        Risky for sure.

    • JSam

      Best of luck to Deondre. Might just be the best scenario for him – to get out and away and follow his real desire. Now, whether Baton Rouge is the best place to do that remains to be seen.

      Hope he does well. Don’t think OU will look back and rue his decision and it certainly wasn’t for lack of pursuit from the coaching staff.

  • dahldennsull

    If Brown makes it into school, and I had the option beforehand of trading Clark for him, I would have gladly done it. We now have two awesome young OT’s in the program again, and are more than satisfied with young talent at DE and OLB at the moment. Sure Clark is a good talent, but you worry about him wanting to be here. Brown is an incredible talent as well, stars be damned, and under Bedenbaugh’s coaching, could be a monster

  • Pokerman

    Read on another board that Clark has sent his NLI to LSU.

  • Shifty

    I’m extremely happy with our class and the way we finished…Future looks bright starting immediately after the way we finished and the young guys that stepped up and the young ones that are expected to make an impact (like Walker)..can’t wait for the spring game!!!

  • Jordan Esco

    I’m pretty convinced you can move on from Clark.

    • Doobie74OU

      C’MON MAN! Your Killing My Buzz! LOL!

    • SoonerfanTU

      I’m fine with that. He had the potential to be a nice player, but it just never seemed meant to be.

  • Shifty

    Look at some of the big schools we beat out for recruits…Bama, Scar, texas, atm, ucla, usc, ND…nice

    • Ray

      We ARE a big school. Boomer!

  • rblazer

    If that’s where Clark want to be then that good for him , honestly with all the drama surrounding the family can you blame him for wanting to leave the state.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

    SO……..on paper, is this the best O Line Stoops has assembled in a recruiting class?

    • dahldennsull

      Wait until next year ;)

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

        Already had a sneak peek at it and yeah…….gonna be nasty.

  • lulzer

    How would “soonerscoop” know if Clark signed or not? Their site doesn’t even work. lulz.

  • Boomer4life

    Clark be gone!

  • Billy

    In regard to Clark, let’s just agree to wish the kid good luck and move on. We all know the different stances about his choice, so there really is nothing more to add. Anything short of positive words his way would be a sign of classlessness.

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Great to see Jonathan Thomas and Juwan Dowels go to Syracuse also. Hope they have great success up there for the Orange.

  • Cbusta

    About Deondre Clark-I think he did sign but it leaked out and he didn’t want his surprise pep rally at the school ruined. I think he’s playing coy so he can have his moment. Not a big deal. Good luck at LSU and we’ll win w/o him

  • Kamiar Mehrabian

    Deondre Clark signed with LSU, just isn’t announcing till tomorrow.

  • Big Higg

    Not completely bummed about Clark – I wish the guy well if his heart is elsewhere. I am definitely excited about this recruiting haul tho! Great day to be a Sooner fan! BOOMER

  • connie usa

    I know I’ve said it before, but I’m excited about today, so I’ll say it again; “IT’S GOOD TO BE THE KING”. It sure is lookin like the building of the kingdom is on schedule.

    Now that OU has restocked the cupboard. It’s time to build on the momentum and win the Big XII Championship.

  • Swanny

    Side note, we’re getting smoked on ESPN’s poll about which program is the most storied of all time. Here’s the link, go vote: http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/poll/conversation/_/id/4174907

    • EasTex

      My vote didn’t put a dent in the poll.
      Can’t believe my state has voted for the Fightin’ Frenchies so heavily, their stadium is named after an OU All-American football player.

    • James D-Space

      I’m not surprised…. You know what they say about opinions.
      I recall not long ago SECPN had another poll regarding the Sugar Bowl.
      Turns out a lot of people voted the wrong way.
      BOOMER!

  • dahldennsull

    Anyone catch Mike Stoops on the Sports Animal saying they were waiting for one more, and he was around here…?

    The drama continues, can’t wait for it to be over…

    • bmrsnr

      Bob just said the same thing

      • Sooner Ray

        Stoke the fire, pop a top and let’s see what happens.

    • KellyB

      Is this Orlando Brown or someone else?

  • red clay

    Congrats to all the new Sooners!
    Glad to have y’all in our Sooner family.

  • Sooner Ray

    Is this thread holding up ok guys? It’s longer than a coal train. I’ve had no problems btw.

  • Dave Wilkins

    Hope ASU didn’t give some bad info about Dre committing to LSU just so he’d see how big of pricks some so-called OU fans can be to him on twitter.

  • Roberto zavala

    just got home from work and I’m all over this site to catch up on NSD love this site thank u

  • Sooner Ray

    Every time I go read some stuff on twitter, it makes me glad I don’t do that sh$t. I love the fact that our new tight end Meier doesn’t have an acct. either, how can you not love that?

  • Randy White

    Is this the right approach? Seems a little childish.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      You know that’s a troll twitter account right?

      • Sooner Ray

        I thought something didn’t look right about that because I’ve seen some of his tweets and that’s not the right picture.

        • Randy White

          Geez, at 63 I’m too old for this tweeter crap!

          • Sooner Ray

            Hey, I’m too old for it also but I read it now and then…..just can’t make sense of some of it Lol.

          • Big Higg

            Lol!!

    • Big Higg

      WOW! What a POS!

      • Sooner Ray

        Who?, The imposter or coach Norvell.

        • Big Higg

          The imposter of course

        • Randy White

          I thought that was Coach Norvell account. Am I wrong?

          • Sooner Ray

            I’m not a twitter expert but there are a lot of trolls out there today causing hard feelings. It doesn’t look right to me and I would hope our coaches wouldn’t be saying that but use your own judgement.

          • Big Higg

            No that’s not Coach Norvell. His twitter account is @OU_CoachNorvell

          • Randy White

            Thx!

          • Big Higg

            No prob

          • SoonerfanTU

            You really think Norvell would have an account named like that, and would make a comment like that?

    • Shifty

      Isn’t this illegal? I mean the name is legit but he’s actually acting like he’s Norvell..seems like Norvell could do something

      • Sooner Ray

        Wasn’t there two of you on here at one time? Lol!

        • Shifty

          Yeah I was using JD then someone else showed up with it so I switched to my scout name…meds are working now ha

  • Ed Cotter

    Not gonna go through all 400+ comments to see if this was already mentioned, but Bob mentioned in his presser that Baker Mayfield is going to walk on at OU, and he met him for the first time last night. Hey, if the kid wants to come out on his dime, so much the better for the team. Wish him good luck.

    • Sooner Ray

      That’s about how it went down. I say if he want’s to give it shot, go for it.

  • Adrian

    It’s really getting frustrating the LSU and ASU fans teaming up to take shots at OU and get Dre the wrong impression when this whole ordeal started in the LSU office. He really should just turn it off but oh well, his opinion has been swayed heavily and the fake OU accounts are growing now.

    • Sooner Ray

      I’ve seen ASU mentioned a couple times, what’s the connection with Dre? I thought it was down to us and LSU.

      • Dave Wilkins

        Jackie Shipp was the person who had the biggest connection with Dre, and now he is the DL coach at ASU.

        • Sooner Ray

          Ah, I had forgotten about that. Thanks.

    • EasTex

      It seems the well has been poisoned for Dre with OU.

      • Sooner Ray

        I think it will work out in the end for both sides. I at least know that we will be fine.

        • EasTex

          I agree, just don’t like all the negative comments I’ve seen directed at him and his family in recent weeks from various sources. Some of the comments at newsok on this topic are atrocious, probably trolls.

          • Sooner Ray

            No one forced his brother to do the things he’s done to shame the family. I just hope Dre is smart enough not to follow the example. There are trolls out there hiding behind a screen who are doing a lot of damage.

          • EasTex

            Stevie has problems he needs to deal with, the ugly things said about Dre AND his Mom are way out of line.
            I have been an administrator/contributor to numerous blogs over the past few years, mostly politics. I’ve exposed and slapped trolls with the clue bat many times. They are a scourge on the interwebs.

  • Dave Wilkins

    Whatever the deal is, Dre Clark is not on LSU’s list of signees today.

  • Cory Reedy

    You guys watching this OU basketball team!? What a comeback…especially considering the travel issues.

    • Sooner Ray

      It will be a miracle comeback.

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Remember the good ol’ days when recruiting didn’t involve social media? Sometimes I miss those days.

    • Sooner Ray

      Fax machines, land line phones, and hiding recruits in hotel rooms until signing day. Those were the days!

  • Gary Robbins

    Just heard on the news report that Headington Hall will have to be closed for 6 months for remodeling. If the news reports are valid the problem has been identified as Alvarez, Brown, Curtis, Dalton, Frison, and Paul. You guessed it they need bigger rooms and a larger dining hall. Coach B has some size to work with. Great job.

    • Sooner Ray

      I hope they got a budget because some serious beef is coming next year too. Glad I’m not the lunch lady!

      • EasTex

        …and hide the ponies!

    • EasTex

      Need big boys to play big boy football.

  • wolfbuilder

    Schroder is not at fault, he was doing his job, sorry u can say its LSU but if u wanted all the attention for ur self guess he should have waited to fax in his LOI after his school get together at 2 tomorrow, now if it was me and I was asked if I signed I wouldnt had lied but he is a kid

  • Boomer4life

    Blevins reported we lost Clark to Lsu tonight.

    • Doobie74OU

      And last night he said “Garnett was a lost cause” I think he is probably right about Clark but sometimes Dean-O is making it up as he goes along LOL!

      • Hollerback

        Dean is so lazy, he is the last to find anything out.

  • Kris Wood

    Clark’s mother tweeted that he has not signed with LSU. Apparently, his high school was closed today (yesterday) and did not fax anything in. Hopefully he commits to the good guys. If not, I hope he has a great career.
