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

1. One of Oklahoma's earliest 2013 offers, tight end Derrick Griffin (Rosenberg, Texas/Terry), told RecruitingNation late Tuesday night that his "mind is still open" to other schools, despite being committed to Texas A&M. Could the Sooners get back in the picture? Griffin, who will play both football and basketball in college, is ranked No. 29 in the ESPN 150.

2. OU quarterback commit Cody Thomas (Colleyville, Texas/Heritage) has made it to California for this week's Elite 11 finals. Thomas, who has been busy playing baseball this summer, said he has been studying his playbook and is prepared for the event. With Landry Jones (2007), Blake Bell (2009) and Kendal Thompson (2010), the Sooners have three signal-callers on campus who were Elite 11 finalists.
