Triple Option: Sooners offer three more

6/13/2012

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

1. Oklahoma had a satellite camp in Houston on Tuesday night in conjunction with McMurry University, and at least three prospects were offered by the Sooners. Class of 2013 prospects Austin Bennett (Manvel, Texas/Manvel) and Caleb Benenoch (Katy, Texas/Seven Lakes), along with 2014 defensive back Tony Brown (Beaumont, Texas/Ozen) were all offered by OU. Benenoch was recently offered by Texas and decommitted from Michigan State on Tuesday. For more on the offers, check out our forum.

2. Would you believe it if I told you OU spent less money on football recruiting in 2011 than Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State? Well, believe it. The Sooners spent $356,414 on recruiting for their football program last fiscal year, which ranks 7th in the Big 12. OU actually spent almost $100,000 more in 2010 ($452,601), if you can believe that. Here's the full Big 12 recruiting budget rankings.

3. The BCS meetings are set to kickoff this week, and ESPN.com's Mark Schlabach has a good primer on what to expect in the next three weeks of meetings. Will the college football playoff be settled? I'm hopeful the commissioners of the 11 Football Bowl Subdivision conferences can get it ironed out.

Feel free to join the ongoing conversation on our "There's Only One" forum.
