– Mark Jackson: Heard a bit of good news recently and wanted to pass it along. Caught up with 2016 DE/OLB Mark Jackson (6’3″ 215 – Cibolo, TX). It’s starting to sound as though Diron Reynolds has made quite the impression, and the Sooners are a very serious player for the Cibolo product. Jackson let me know he’s actually considering a commitment decision at the beginning of the summer, which is obviously just a few weeks away.
In addition to OU, it sounds like the other schools he is considering are Baylor, Texas, and Texas A&M. However, after talking with a couple sources I get the sense OU is very high on that short list. In fact one of the sources I spoke with told me the Sooners may be in Jackson’s top two schools at the moment. But again, Jackson has yet to make anything like that official.
I hope to speak to Mark again in the next few days and hopefully have more from him. Right now he’s definitely a prospect Sooner fans are going to want to keep their eye on. – (Super K)
– Devin White: OU extended an offer today to the 2016 athlete (6’0″ 253) out of Spring Hill, LA. We’re hoping to have more soon with regards to where the Sooners may stand now with offer in hand. – (Alex)

– UPDATE (5:40 pm): 2015 Notre Dame signee, Bo Wallace out of New Orleans tweeted out the following:
ATTN‼️ I am sorry to say that I will not be attending the University of Notre Dame, I will keep you all informed.
— Almighty Bo‼️ (@_BoWallace) May 7, 2015
We found this interesting because OU was in hot pursuit of Wallace for a while. Wallace is academically qualified by NCAA standards but we’ve been told by a source that there was a particular requirement at Notre Dame that was the sticking point. I did ask the source if Oklahoma would be in the mix and he said that he did not believe so. He said he expects Wallace to end up at UCLA. I haven’t communicated with Wallace to confirm anything but just passing along info from a source that knows Wallace – (Super K)
