The No. 1 reason offensive tackle Matt Beyer (San Antonio/Reagan) and his family took a trip to Minnesota last week wasn’t so Beyer could clear his head of all the distractions in recruiting. Beyer, originally from Minnesota, was there to see family and friends. In the process, though, the recruiting scene became crystal clear to him.

When his family returned to San Antonio, Beyer knew it was time to make a decision. Monday morning he called Oklahoma offensive tackles coach Bruce Kittle and let him know he wanted to verbally commit to the Sooners.

Kittle couldn’t have been happier, Beyer said, and the amazing outpour of OU fan support Beyer has seen in the 24 hours since his commitment has given him confirmation that OU is the school for him.

“This has been incredible,” he said. “I cannot believe these Sooner fans. They’re crazy. I don’t think any school has fans as passionate as them.”
