Every Thursday, SoonerNation releases the Sooner Intel, a sneak peek inside Oklahoma Sooners football recruiting with news and notes on the latest happenings around the program. Talk about it on our forum. A few things discussed in this week's update:

• The state's top 2013 prospect is blowing up

• More on a member of OU's 2012 class that wants to play two sports

• A top Florida running back is very serious about the Sooners

• News on another 2014 prospect that attended OU's junior day

• In-state quarterback wants to commit before summer starts

Read the Sooner Intel after the jump.

OU will have to work for Ward

Two of the first three commits for OU’s 2012 class were the top two in-state products in running back Alex Ross (Jenks, Okla./Jenks) and wide receiver Sterling Shepard (Oklahoma City/Heritage Hall).

The Sooners jumped on Ross before anybody knew who he was, and Shepard was practically guaranteed to be a Sooner if OU wanted him with his father and two uncles all having played football at OU.
