Oklahoma has a solid history of keeping its top in-state talent home. To even narrow the focus, the Sooners have normally been able to land all Norman, Okla., high school products. Norman High has been a consistent spot for OU with names like Mossis Madu and Ryan Broyles. But if OU is going to make a move in its own town for the 2013 class, it’s going to be with Norman North linebacker Jordan Evans, who has offers from New Mexico and Ohio. But after growing an inch and putting on nearly 30 pounds, this fall should be interesting for one of the most versatile defenders in Oklahoma.

SoonerNation: Not just 12 months ago but six months ago nobody had really heard of your name. What has changed for you?

Jordan Evans: Us as a team, the group changed. It has been a mentality thing, and I’ve become a lot more mature and realizing this is my senior year. I want to make it special.
