Oklahoma earned one big win on the field with a thrilling 50-49 victory at West Virginia. The Sooners also earned a major win on the recruiting trail when 2014 ESPN Watch List running back Devon Thomas (Broken Arrow, Okla./Broken Arrow) confirmed he committed to OU on Saturday night.
Running back Devon Thomas was one of the Sooners' first offers for the Class of 2014.
Thomas said he told OU running backs coach Cale Gundy on Saturday through Twitter. Thomas said Gundy was excited to hear the news.
“Coach Gundy has been wanting me to commit for a while now,” Thomas said. “I sat down and talked about it with my family and decided it’s time to make it official.”
