Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. OU quarterback commit Cody Thomas (Colleyville, Texas/Heritage) received an invitation to the Elite 11 finals on Thursday night and will compete against 24 other signal-callers from July 18 to 22 in Redondo Beach, Calif. The finals will be shown in two parts on ESPN with "Elite 11 QB Camp: The Finals" airing Tuesday, Aug. 7, and Tuesday, Aug. 14.

2. You might have missed it earlier this week, but the Sooners are after another running back from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, the school that OU recruited DeMarco Murray out of. Rising junior Nathan Starks, who is 6-foot and 210 pounds, has already been offered by OU, along with several other schools across the country. Starks has a lot of early interest in the Sooners and will visit campus this summer.
