Open Post | Tuesday Jan. 21st (Updated 4:55 pm)

I’ve got a few notes so I figured I’d go ahead and add an “open post” for today:

– As I mentioned previously Oklahoma isn’t super confident about where they stand right now with Frison

– Oklahoma has parted ways with DB, Kendall Randolph. I called around and was told that as things stand right now with their other needs, they are done at DB but are of course holding a spot for Steven Parker. I’m sure they will continue to assess where their scholarship numbers are so things might change but as of now I’m hearing they are done.

– Coach Jerry Montgomery tweeted out his recruiting visit schedule which includes: Alabama, NOLA, Houston, Salt Lake City, Hawaii

– Was told that coach Bedenbaugh was actually in Utah today visiting 2015 OT Andre James. Andre is very excited about Oklahoma. Andre already holds a number of impressive offers and it looks like coach Bedenbaugh isnt wasting anytime with his OL recruiting in this class. He’s already got two in the fold and most believe we lead for Barnett. He’s now aggressively recruiting 2015 guys.

(UPDATED: 3:26 pm): Sounds like Coach Stoops went by Plano West to visit stud 2015 RB Soso Jamabo. I’ve got a feeling this 2015 OU recruiting class is going to be truly elite.

(UPDATED: 4:27 pm): Didn’t take long for Kendall Randolph to find a landing spot, he tweets his commitment to Kentucky.

– (UPDATED: 4:55 pm): Really tough news coming out of the Senior Bowl. There are reports that Aaron Colvin may have torn his ACL. He was having an incredible practice and was in fact the winner of the CB award for the south team (along Jaylen Watkins). A tear is not yet confirmed but it isn’t sound good at this point.

    Probably lead on Toby Weathersby as well. 6-5, 285 OT from Houston area

    • Super K

      For sure. I haven’t talked to him yet but I talked to Lampkin and he said as much.

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Looks like we should go ahead and offer Tristan Hill at this point. Why not?

    • JY

      Should have done it already in my opinion.

      • Leroy Jenkins

        So I’m assuming OU’s final two OT options now are Tristan Hill and that JUCO OT from Cali? Hope we offer Hill instead.

    • JSam

      While I understand that they have already reached out to him, by not getting some of these other guys, they may “back into” one every bit as good. Here’s hoping. Give him time in the S&C program and that dude could be the gem of the group.

      • Sooner Ray

        We have done well with some guys the nation has not been familiar with.

  • soonerthunder

    I like your “open posts” during the day. Makes me come back to this site more often to check see if anything new. Otherwise, would check in once day

    • Super K

      We’ll try to do them on days when there are a few “little” thing so that we don’t clutter the blog with a bunch of separate posts.

    Good to see Bedenbaugh is really starting to put solid looking classes together.

    • Sooner Ray

      Coach B is tearing the country up!

      • pitbull17

        Absolutely! I can’t wait to see how he develops his own guys either.

        • Sooner Ray

          Gonna be a good year pit, can’t wait for next season when we can throw around a lot of smack! Be good in the off season bro!

          • pitbull17

            Should be an awesome year! Hopefully it warms up soon so I can play some golf or do something to keep my demented self busy!

  • Cory Reedy

    Feel horrible for Aaron Colvin. : (

  • herewegosooners

    Coaches must feel pretty confident about our chances of landing those “other needs” if we let a 4-Star DB just walk away.

    • Super K

      He’s not a “4-star” in their mind.

      • herewegosooners

        makes sense. I trust Mike on that aspect. I’m hoping Quick, Parker, Garnett, and Clark are locks. They would round this class out pretty well.

      • bmrsnr

        How does Jordan Thomas look to you?

      • Sooner Ray

        Exactly! Paper stars don’t make field STARS!

    • Sooner Ray

      Did you see the new NFL study? The average NFL player was a 2 or 3 star coming out of high school. Makes you want to just trust the coaching staff and their evaluations and ignore these star ranking agencies.

      • herewegosooners

        True… I figured he was a legit 4. But if the coaches didn’t pursue him, that might be a sign.

  • vargo05

    Man, seems like Monty and Bedenbaugh are completely fearless when it comes to recruiting. They don’t seem to have any qualms about going into areas that OU has had little to no luck.

    • Sooner Ray

      I love it. I’m tired of hearing about the same towns or schools year after year. If your willing to lay down enough coin, eventually you can hit a jackpot! Need to keep coaches like this.

  • soonerborn

    Looks like Thompson is gone

    Kendal Thompson

    another path in store for me. I will be graduating in May, and transferring to play at another college next season. #WalkByFaithNotBySight

    • Sooner Ray

      Wish him well, he’s a sooner boy but I can’t blame him for trying to better himself.

  • Stephen

    Does the departure of Kendall Thompson free up a scholarship for this incoming class?

    • Sooner Ray

      I think it only opens up a spot for the total roster limit, which will help in some ways. Hate to see him go though.

  • dahldennsull

    HS tackle recruit Ty Barrett opened his recruitment back up from TCU. Says TCU still in it but I know he liked OU a lot before committing, maybe he sees the opportunity he could have in Norman. Would be an awesome late addition.

  • Sooner Ray

    Super K, JY, Brainiacs, You’ve been asking how people feel about the open posts. There have been several stories break over the past few days and when they do, it takes off running here. It may get jumbled a little but at least there is a place to vent, share info, or lurk without having to wonder where everyone is. Just wondering if it helps you guys by not having to throw new posts for every little thing that comes out during any given day?

  • Adrian

    Ty Barrett decommits

  • BD

    Just discovered this sight today and have been reading over a wide variety of articles for the past hour. I’m extremely impressed not only with the content quality of the stories, but also with the comments / discussion threads. No ridiculous, immature name-calling or posters arguing over ridiculous things. Just solid OU commentary. Will definitely check back daily, keep it up and Boomer Sooner!
