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

1. I guess recruits want to enjoy the 4th of July. A simple recap of where several OU offers have committed in the last 48 hours. Linebacker Michael Hutchings (Concord, Calif./De La Salle) to USC. Cornerback Derek Babiash (Poway, Calif./Poway) to Arizona. Defensive tackle Hardreck Walker (Houston/Westfield) to Texas A&M. That was just Sunday. On Monday tight end DeSean Smith (Lake Charles, La./Barbe) committed to LSU. Linebacker Marcus Newby (Gaithersburg, Md./Quince Orchard) committed to Nebraska. And there is one more pending with cornerback Adrian Baker (Hallandale, Fla./Chaminade-Madonna) who announced his commitment to Florida State and will talk with the Seminoles coaches Wednesday. It wasn’t all for nothing as OU did nab No. 12 in four-star offensive tackle Matt Beyer (San Antonio/Reagan).

2. Want to watch one Olympic event with an OU flavor? Your search stops with men’s gymnastics. The Sooners will be well represented with five current or former gymnasts on the squad. Jonathan Horton and Jake Dalton are two of the five members on the team. Steven Legendre, Chris Brooks and Alex Naddour are the three injury replacements if any of the five selected cannot compete. This is Horton’s second Olympic appearance, while it is the first for the other four gymnasts.
