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

1. And let the recruiting for the 2014 class officially begin. Texas, known for not offering any prospects until after the previous year’s signing day, had the recruiting world buzzing with offers to more than a dozen recruits. Several of them are OU offers and maybe the most intriguing one is Las Vegas Bishop Gorman running back Nathan Starks. Starks has been a huge OU fan for a long time and has been in constant communication with OU running backs coach Cale Gundy this summer. Either way, with Texas letting the offers be known, the dominoes should fall a lot sooner than they have in the past.

2. He’s now OU’s top-ranked recruit, but Cypress (Texas) Ranch running back Keith Ford is far from the class’ most vocal commit. However, with the departure of Greg Bryant, Ford let everybody know Thursday afternoon he is not going anywhere. Ford tweeted he was OU all the way. Ford is the third-ranked running back in the nation and No. 32 in the ESPN 150.
