OU Recruiting 2020: Everybody Hurts Sometimes


Recommended Posts

Thread title is provisional per someone coming up with a better one and petitioning @immamac

Coming off another year of winning the Big XII and flunking their Playoff appearance, OU has a rebuild year coming for fucking once. With Jimbo and his crew driving around the Metroplex with trunks full of duffel bags and Texas (hopefully) making a concerted effort to retake DFW, this could be a tougher year for them in their usual North Texas stomping grounds.

Here's who they have so far in their #8 nationally ranked class:

5-star Aledo RB Jase McClellan: https://247sports.com/player/jase-mcclellan-46036686/

4-star Denton Ryan QB/ATH Drew Sanders: https://247sports.com/player/drew-sanders-45572383/

4-star Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei CB Darion Green-Warren: https://247sports.com/player/darion-green-warren-46038102/

3-star Buford (GA) CB Jalen Huff: https://247sports.com/player/jalen-huff-46036492/

It's just about midnight on the East Coast and OU still sucks.

OU recruiting notes on players we've offered, courtesy of Super K

 

***As you know, Sooners hosted 2020 OT, Seth MClaughlin (Buford, GA) this weekend. This was Seth’s third visit.

I’ve only exchanged a few texts with Seth so far but I have spoken to some people about his recruitment and as you know by now, he decided not to pull the trigger to OU.

I’m told he’d still like to take some additional trips but the Sooners remain his leader.

I’ll be traveling out west to see a few players this week but hopefully, we can bring you a fuller update on McLaughlin once I get back in town.

***I also exchanged some text messages with 2021 DE/DT, Tunmise Adeleye. I’m scheduled to speak with him later this evening but among the text messages we exchanged, he said the following regarding the visit…

”It was amazing man, I don’t know how to describe it”

***I spoke with Sooners 2020 LB target and weekend visitor, Brennon Scott (Bishop Dunne).

I’ll have my full write up on him, shortly.

But a quick note on him: Very very high priority, it seems, for the Sooners. Before this visit, Scott said he’d already been visited at his school by Lincoln Riley once and both coach Grinch and coach Odom twice.

Cut on his film and you can see why he’s a high priority target, he’s exactly what Oklahoma is looking for in that Rush/Jack position. Scott told me that is the position they are recruiting him to play.

That Georgia kid's been to Norman THREE TIMES already? Christ, Austin should blow his mind.

Their WR takes have been mystifying this cycle. I love it in terms of them not shaving off the top of our board, but it's odd.

I gotta give Riley the benefit of the doubt on WR talent.  The numbers of early commits at the position seem a bit much though.  Maybe they're trying to create the impression of momentum to get the defensive players and linemen that are more urgent needs in Norman.

There's a reason I said odd and not stupid. I'm (almost) never going to slam a Riley offensive take.

Anyone have any screen shots from their board. There is now multiple guys that have committed elsewhere or leaning elsewhere that at one time were thought to be targets of ou and those guys were thought to have ou at or near the top. Just wondering what the climate was like in reaction to these. When Princley, Prince, Collins and Broughton end up in Austin I’m not sure who will have the bigger meltdown aggy or sooner?

You have to wonder if any reasonable person actual believes a statement like that. It's pretty clear (with regard to twitter exchanges) where it starts. 

It usually starts with some idiot Sooner interrupting a conversation that doesn't involve them to talk shit.  You know, just like in real life.
