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

1. The chase for championships is heating up for several Sooners teams. OU baseball advanced in the Big 12 tournament with its 1-0 win over Oklahoma State in the first round; OU women’s golf enters today’s action in 15th place at the NCAA golf championships and women’s tennis doubles team Whitney Ritchie and Marie-Pier Huet start their quest for a title today in Atlanta. The Sooners baseball squad will battle Baylor today at 4 p.m.

2. As the spring evaluation period winds down, Sooners fans have to be pleased with OU’s current group of commitments. Quarterback Cody Thomas (Colleyville, Texas/Heritage) is one of the headline commitments and has major upside. And the risk of professional baseball taking Thomas away from the program is much smaller than initially believed. He told SoonerNation’s Bob Przybylo of his strong desire to play football and baseball at OU, and his love for the Sooners. It would take a major development for Thomas to bypass the chance to quarterback the Sooners for pro baseball.
