OU Recruiting 2020: Everybody Hurts Sometimes

Recommended Posts

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.

In my experience, it usually ends when I use a word the sooner doesn't understand.

I think there’s a shot that something happens with Ogunbiyi. 

I know this is morbid, and I’m not acting like I’d be happy, but I would laugh my fucking ass off if Collins committed to OU this weekend. This board would be outstanding. 

In truth, I’m sure there will be some raving enthusiasm from the visitors when they leave Norman, but it’s hard to see Umanmielen, Collins or Washington actually committing on the spot. Also, good luck to anyone playing defense at OU while Riley is there.

Also, Super K mentioned about Texas being in communication with the Mater Dei CB committed to OU and, surprise surprise, that the new OU defensive staff just recently started communicating with him.

It seems ever since Grinch was hired they have taken a while to get their priorities in order.

He and Giles have a really long Snapchat streak that they're trying to keep up. Some really cool poses, cool pictures they're drawing on them. Takes a lot of time to get right.

Sounds like OU is starting to get questions about their defensive production from OOS recruits - specifically from Cali.  We all saw they were crap and questions are warranted.  But now RJ Young from OU Insider is starting to lecture fans that they better hope these top rated kids that the fan base is criticizing pan out.  Sounds like he's pinned all his hopes on Grinch being a huge upgrade at DC.  Seems quite optimistic to me when the guy has had one decent defense in 4 years as a DC but excessive optimism is the hallmark of fandom I suppose.

"If you don't get anything out of Bookie (@Huckleberry's favorite okie DB Brendan Radley-Hiles) you're going to start to see California recruiting dry up."

"If this doesn't get better in the next couple of years, you're going to see it reflected in recruiting."

Jase McClellan ran a 11.67 100m earlier this week.

That doesn't sound very good. 

Not a breakaway runner but someone most teams would love to have on their roster.  My main concern would be the amount of wear and tear that Aledo's offense puts on a back.  Kid might have 1,000 carries by the time he graduates.  We saw what that can mean with Johnathan Gray.

That's about a 4.6 40 time. We were in the same district as Aledo, they are a football factory and don't really get challenged until quarter or semifinals. After Jonathan Gray, I'm a little leary about anything that comes out of Aledo. Their lines open big enough lanes that I could probably average 100 per game at 50.

McClellan looked amazing in the state title game. So did Grey. The holes were huge for both, but McClellan had a lot of yards after contact. I see your point, though.

I think you mean continuing to suck shit through a straw. Guy was worse in coverage than Anthony Wheeler lined up on a slot receiver.

For those those who enjoy statistics:

Jase McClellan- 5-10, 196

40- 4.57, Shuttle- 4.09

https://www.theopening.com/2018-dallas-results

Zachary Evans- 5-11, 196

40- 4.51, Shuttle- 3.91

https://www.theopening.com/2018-houston-results

Something to note though, Zach's times were recorded on a "rainy" day, so he's probably even a bit quicker. An example is Grant Tisdale. He recorded a 4.76 and 4.21 at the same event as Zach, yet ran a 4.55 and 4.07 at the same event as Jase in "sunny" conditions.

This author argues that a 4.6 is closer to an 11.2, chief

They were. Stingley and Hill both running 4.3 flats is pretty incredible.

So who that we care about made it to Norman this weekend? I realize, since Omeire is slow as fuck, he might not be there yet, but is he still expected to show up? What about the rest?

2021 Latrell Neville is all I've seen so far.

Steve Wiltfong: Oklahoma impresses top targets Saturday

News, notes and buzz coming out of a big junior day at Oklahoma.

There seems to be a ton of confidence around Norman regarding Lawrence (Kan.) Free State Top247 offensive tackle Turner Corcoran. I know Nebraska among others is in the thick of it for the blue-chipper, but the Sooners are no question at or near the top of the list. Ohio State is also slated to get a spring game visit. “It was great man,” Corcoran told 247Sports. “I got to talk with current and former players and that’s always great I mean that’s basically the only thing I haven’t done yet there so kind of a check off the bucket list.” A source that spent time around Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro’s Jacobe Covington says it went really well and likes where the Sooners stand following the visit. Covington tells 247Sports he's headed back to campus Sunday morning to speak with the coaches and eat.

A couple young guys are really feeling the Sooners as well. The nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker Kendrick Blackshirehas been to Norman a few times and had another great visit. Heard it went real well with Missouri City (Texas) Willowridge 2021 receiver Latrell Neville as well. Oklahoma has the nation’s No. 8 class early in the 2020 cycle.

Not that big of a surprise IMO.  Seemed like he was always leaning OU and he's had crystal ball picks to them going back to last spring.

Thought he would look a bit bigger since we were supposedly interested in him as a TE or H-back, right?

Saw it was Henderson on the other thread.

If you're a "sturdy" Sooner, what is that like 400 lbs?  I mean relatively speaking to the normal Sooner physique?
