Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. The Sooners picked up their second commitment for the class of 2013 Tuesday with defensive end Matt Dimon (Katy, Texas/Katy) giving his pledge to Bob Stoops and Bobby Jack Wright. At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds (and only a junior in high school), I wonder if Dimon could eventually grow into being a 4-3 defensive tackle in Mike Stoops' defense. OU played with just one defensive tackle in the game frequently in 2011 under Brent Venables, but I expect a more traditional defensive front in 2012. Regardless, Dimon looks like a solid addition.
2. Oklahoma's Pro Day is today and there are a couple of intriguing former players that will work out for pro scouts. Linebacker Ryan Reynolds, who played for the Sooners from 2006 to 2009 and was a defensive graduate assistant under Venables for the last two years, has decided to play football again. And receiver Cameron Kenney, who played for OU in 2009 and 2010 and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the San Diego Chargers (cut before the season), will also work out. For the full list of participants, here's the list. We'll also have updates on our forum throughout the day.
3. So we all know Blake Bell scored 13 rushing touchdowns in 2011, right? But did you realize that he ranked 22nd in the nation in touchdowns on the ground? And did you realize that he did this on just 44 carries, averaging a touchdown for every 3.4 carries? His season was truly remarkable. Though we probably won't see much of the Belldozer package in the Red-White game on April 14, I'm interested in what the Sooners do with a full offseason to prepare.
