It looks like we got another pledge.

Also, the number one ranked player from Oklahoma, Kendal Daniels, is set to release his choice on 8-1.

K2C this is a weird one. No one can confirm the offer best I can tell.

Some more on Daniels...

One of his coaches posted on Rivals he is a 50/50 between OU and A$M.

Reported that communication broke down last week between OU staff and family. It's back on, butt....

I posted a month or so ago what my step-daughter overheard in a Dollar Store in Beggs, basically, that father Daniels was really down on OU because of position change from Safety to LB/Hybrid. That really didn't make sense as Clemson was recruiting him for the "Simmons" position and was leading at the time she overheard the conversation. T$M has him listed as a Safety recruit only.

Family is building a new house outside of Beggs township and being so close to Norman, OU would seem to have an advantage.

I watched a podcast on a premium site Kendall and mother gave for about 20 minutes. Mom dominated the podcast and Daniels played on the phone and seemed disinterested much of the time.

I wouldn't be ssurprised if Kendall pledges A$M and changes to us, much like Creed did a few years back.

Perhaps A$M being on probation will work in our favor.

I was looking at his rating at 247Sports yesterday. His rating is very odd in that he is listed as having offers from the likes of Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida, Tennessee, A&M. Usually when a recruit is offered by so many schools of that caliber he is rated 0.89 or higher....usually higher. Caleb Johnson is rated at 0.8727 with a national overall rank of "only" 528. Interesting.

Grinch is reported to have said he will recruit players only over 5'10... UNLESS they have elite speed. Caleb has elite speed. Plus, his main position is receiver. OU has recruited him as a project CB. It will take him a couple of years to learn the position — but watch out once he does!

Everything I have seen points out his amazing speed.  Speed and average height makes me think of Hollywood Brown.  I saw that Caleb also plays receiver in high school so perhaps we will see him get some snaps on offense as well.

If true, that makes three of the last four years that the top-ranked recruit in Oklahoma has left the state. Josh Proctor from Owasso to Ohio State, and Dax Hill from Tulsa to Michigan. This is not a good trend.

Summer Summit...

Does anyone follow Caleb Williams, our 5* quarterback pledge, on Twitter?

Apparently he has instigated a recruiting visit for the last week of August, with several other target recruits. It would be an unofficial visit with no contacts with the coaching staff or anyone on the OU payroll.

Word is up to nine other recruits, with families along, plan on meeting that week in Norman. It will be paid for by the families instead of the university.

I have seen a screenshot of CW's twitter, but I have a hard time deciphering most of the new language the twitty birds post.:dude:

This guy is announcing his choice on Saturday 8-1. All crystal balls from the major pay sites are predicting OU.

He's a 3 star that didn't play his junior season due to injury. He must be special if you look at his offer list. It looks like Georgia was in on him.

Get ready for a BOOM!:dude::ou:

I'm going to follow up on a recruiting comment that I made on another thread a couple of weeks ago.

Both Kevin Gilliam and Scooby Williams had long and "productive" Zoom calls with OU this week. I'm told OU is very confident on where they stand with Gilliam and OU's optimism is increasing every week on Williams.

OU is also making some headway with JT Tuimoloau.

Thanks for the update Rick, that sounds encouraging. Man, if we could get two of those three...
Have you heard anything about Marcus Burris lately?
I am just up the road from you in Melissa, by the way. :dude:

From what I'm told Burris is a 50/50 with OU and ATM. Evidently he sways back and forth one day to the other. OU would take him in a minute, its just really up in the air at this moment. I think if they can get him to come to the Sooner Summit in OKC, the momentum that event could bring to the recruiting effort might bring some really surprising results. Imagine if we landed Gilliam, Burris, Tuimoloau and Scooby Williams to go with the already committed Ethan Downs, Isaiah Coe and Nathan Rawlins-Kibonge????? I'd settle for Gilliam, Tuimoloau at this point. Burris and Williams would be the icing on the cake!
