When it comes to running backs, the state of Texas is loaded. Ten running backs represent the Lone Star State in the ESPN 300. Of those 10, five are committed. A total of seven running backs in the state have reported FBS commitments.

ESPN 300 RBs from the state:

No. 50 Ronald Jones II: Ranked the nation’s No. 3 running back, Jones is an explosive, game-changing back who -- as scary as it might sound -- will only get better. Jones committed to Oklahoma State on April 6 and finished his junior season with more than 2,400 rushing yards and 39 touchdowns.

Sooners 17th in Way-Too-Early Top 25

Alabama CheerleadersStreeter Lecka/Getty ImagesAlabama, with three of the past four national titles, is No. 1 in the Way-Too-Early Top 25 for 2013.

There are still seven months before the start of the 2013 season, and the teams and their order figure to change frequently, but it's never too early to take a look at the Way-Too-Early Top 25 for 2013.

And with three national championships in the past four years, there's no reason to change the team that's on top. Oklahoma will try to make it back to the top from the No. 17 spot.

Tyler Foreman (Encino, Calif./Crespi Carmelite) could easily be considered a blank canvas.

Although he’s only been playing defense for two seasons, the safety prospect recently picked up an offer from Oklahoma. Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops watched Foreman work out and then offered the 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect.

“He said he could tell I’m really explosive at a young age, because I’m only 16,” Foreman said. “He said I have time to grow into my body, I’m going to be really big and I’m going to develop.”

It’s an understatement to say ESPNU Watch List running back Justin Davis (Stockton, Calif./Lincoln) was surprised when Oklahoma offered him a scholarship.

“It came out of the blue,” Davis said. “In November, my coach pulled me out of class and told me Coach [Cale] Gundy from Oklahoma had called to give me a full ride. I was so excited with that being my first offer. It was unexpected because I’d never talked to him before.

With Oklahoma’s junior day scheduled for Saturday, defensive end Matt Dimon (Katy, Texas) is looking to simply enjoy the Norman, Okla., experience and not read anything extra into it. After all, it wasn’t that long ago when he wasn’t on anybody’s radar.

Six weeks ago, Dimon was another solid defensive lineman still searching for his first scholarship offer. As the weekend approaches, the 6-foot-4, 250-pound junior has nine offers – Oklahoma included – and has many Sooners fans wondering if he will commit on Saturday.

While it’s not a guarantee that Dimon will commit, it is a guarantee that Dimon is looking at this trip seriously.
