Why is Bobby Evans listed under 2016? I thought he was coming in this years class?
I think it was just a typo. We are getting it fixed. Thanks for noticing and bringing it to our attention.
Note: We are adding Tyler Banta and Terry Wilson(both 2016) to the list.
Looks like you are missing the Long Beach Poly Trio
Just confirmed them a bit ago. Thanks Rob!
Two different Quan Hogans, or same guy two positions?
Same guy, I just always forget where we listed him at the previous time
nice list………..would really help to not lay an enormous egg sat
What are the odds on Ross??
Very long. Just read in today’s paper that he would love to stay in So. Cal. Wasn’t adverse to heading east, but his heart is with USC.
Must be nice being USC. They don’t even have to try to land these studs. They just fall into their lap. Every year.
He’s going to SC with Marshall.
Thought we were supposed to have a JC DT/NG Reynolds attend the OSU game. Is he still in consideration?
still trying to find out
What a list. Thanks to everybody. Besides Deonte Reynolds at one point I had Marvell Tell (Encino, Ca.) and Will Farrar (2017 ot) of Richmond, Tx. If you find out let us know
Farrar will be at the game.
Please we can haz commits?
Was hoping to see Gallimore on the list.
He made an official already didn’t he? I can’t expect him to make an unofficial from canada.
Made his official to OU on Sept. 12th, but had a coaches visit on 11-30. I read that he is down to OU and Ohio State for his signature. Ohio State may have a better record in football this year but we have Montgomery.
To my knowledge he hasn’t made it to OU at all.
He was at the Tennessee game. Someone posted picks here with him and Monty before the game.
2nd from left. Anyone recall who others are?
He’s in that photo from the UTenn game that was making the rounds. Can’t get it to copy here but was 2nd from the left. Peat, Overton and half-dozen others.
Please tell me we aren’t recruiting Gilkey…
Why? I like the kids game and he comes from a football family.
Any chance offer gets made to chason. If so would that help with McNeal and jefferson? McNeal used to be teammates with chason.
I think the odds are very high Virgil gets an offer.
Super k and or everyone else. What commitments are a real possibility?
They’re each real possibilities, in that the probabilities are real numbers…
I would say McGinnis, Virgil (if an offer is made), maybe Campbell but that’s a pretty big stretch and obviously Iman Marshall will commit, no doubt (Sarcasm).
I wouldn’t be shocked to see McGinnis, Dalton or Bundage commit.
Lamp kin will be there? Why? His butt pledged Texass after he broke his committment to to OU. Oh wait… He wants to see the RRS trophy.
Yeah, don’t understand this at all.
What are our chances with Teuhema?? LSU commit. Big time OT. It would be amazing if he flipped to OU.
IMO, very slim at best. But today’s Open Post has some info that may (stress, may) disagree w/ that.
So many stud players on that list please let us get a commit this weekend im not even being picky ill take anything.
I’ll be really surprised if they don’t get at least one, and I think multiple is definitely possible. Now, it may not be from who you want necessarily. But I definitely think we’ll have some good news coming out of the weekend.
I (and probably every Sooner fan) want to see some LB verbals. Concerns are high there probably more than every other position with a close second being QB.
I’d go with 3-4 likely. You could see up to 5, if things work out well.
Who are you thinking would be the 3-4 most likely to jump?
I’m sure I will catch hell for this for being negative, but it is somewhat important (or at least relevant) to note one possible reason some of these more high profile names may be in Norman. The teams participating in conference championship games cannot host recruits. So OU is one of few teams still playing a regular season game, thus allowed to host recruits.
Ain’t a thang. They still decided to come to OU vs. some other school.
And did not just stay home
It does work out for us. Thanks to big12 for that.
I pray to all the recruiting gods that the California trio of Marshall, Wicker and Samuel realize together that they could be the next and latest ‘Cali Trio’ to enjoy success at OU.
In all seriousness, its a pretty nice list. It would be a good time for OU to put on a show with all units firing (offense, defense, special teams). The Tennessee game may not have landed us a bounty of recruits yet, but it had a great impact on the attendees. A similar performance and atmosphere might be more successful given the time of year (late in season rather than early on).
Re: Chason Virgil – as nice as a Kyler Murray committment would be, Virgil is a fine QB prospect in his own right. If he’s good enough to offer, I hope we pull the trigger and this young man can come in and continue his passion of playing QB at a quality football program. If Murray is only a 10-20% chance of flipping and we feel Virgil is 75% and good enough a prospect, bring him on board. Give me someone who wants to play here, is willing to learn, ready to work hard, and has the motivation to succeed.
Do the coaches really want Lampkin on the sideline? Why would he come, anyway?
He’s coming w/ this teammate
Seems odd. Wasn’t Lumpkin an OU commit at one time then ended up committing to Texas. I keep forgetting these are 17-18 year old kids and they sometimes change their mind going from one room to the other. Like someone said OU needs athletes who want to play in Norman.
Yes, he was. Goes w/o saying the coaches don’t hold grudges like some fans do (not saying you are tho). Obviously the coaches feel comfortable letting him come. Now whether that means they feel they can flip him back, I have no clue. But I think in most instances they’re will to hear a kid out, especially one they have a relationship with.
Seems Lampkin is/was one of those kids said to have ‘a great relationship with Coach Monty’. And Momma loved OU. Question is do they still have room for him if he would want to flip back to OU.
Apparently he had a great senior year.
Sounds like some of the music I hear on the radio!
Seems like he’s excited about the visit maybe he and wariboko change back to ou commits. Would be interesting however I want to check out lampkin’s senior highlights to see if he does look beastly.
Is Chaz AhYou, little brother to CJ?
It’s his nephew.
doesn’t hurt CJ Ah You is a GA at OU
Did not realize this. CJ was a beast
I’ll check with him today.
Something tells me wariboko may end up back with OU. I don’t know what tells me this and I’m probably in the minority thinking this but I’ve got a feeling he knows he initially made the right choice.
I would take him and Barnett in exchange for Danley. Nothing against Danley but I want guys for 4 years not 2.
I agree, however I was a huge fan of Phil loadholt’s two years too.
That’s a fair point and Danley could be great but I don’t see us taking 7 or us having 7 OL wanting to commit so I would rather have room for 2 HS seniors
There may well end up being room. I don’t think Danley was a solid verbal was he? In any case, I hope Frison and Brown are the guys for 2015-2018.
Danley is a swing guy – OG or RT…but he prefers Guard.
Also, look at the last two JUCO O-lineman we recruited (Savage & St. John), one has had good production if he actually gets on the field, the other…well not so much.
Unfortunately I think the Loadholts of the world are few and far between
OL Dru Samia is coming in per Bob P from scout.
Also the kid got his 4th star from rivals yesterday.
Bummed seeing McGinnis crossed off. What happened there? Sounded like he might even end up as an OU commit. Also, Don’t see Deonte Reynolds, 6’4 325 DT from Contra Costa College in CA listed. Word was he would be visiting this weekend.
Yeah, not sure how something like that gets overlooked but obviously it’s understandable. But also unfortunate, of course.
Demerick Gary informed me he will not be in Norman.
Poll: Over/Under 2.5 commits by next Friday?
Over – 3 commits out of the weekend. Virgil, Orr, and Campbell.
Over…….just have a good feelin.
Under. 2 at most.
Had to remove other big name unfortunately.
Another one bites the dust. Two pretty prominent CBs, Marshall & Ross, recently removed from the list above.
Hopefully Samuel and Wicker still come now Marshall cannot make it.
They plan to based on what we’ve been told.
Did Virgil get an offer?
