Three-star running back David Smith (Midlothian, Ill./Bremen) never gave up on the dream of becoming an Oklahoma Sooner.

It started nearly two years ago when Smith emailed OU running backs coach Cale Gundy, and it came true on Jan. 17, when Smith, with Gundy in attendance, verbally committed to the Sooners.

“I just wanted to let him know that I felt I was good enough, that I deserved a shot at OU and how much I liked the program,” Smith said.
