Jacorey Warrick 'clicked' with OU coach

2/5/2012

When Jacorey Warrick (Houston/Cypress Falls) looked back at his time spent in the office of Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, he used these words:

“I was in amazement.”

And he’s not talking about Stoops’ plush digs.

Warrick was amazed after Stoops told him the Sooners were going to offer a scholarship and “wanted him to be a part of the Sooner family” during OU’s junior day on Feb. 4. At 5-foot-11, 175-pounds, Warrick is a terrific candidate to line up at slot receiver for the Sooners.

Also boasting offers from Utah and Baylor, Warrick says the Sooners are in his top two alongside the Bears.

“I loved everything they had to offer,” he said. “As far as facilities, the coaches were nice and genuine... and the trophies and banners speak for themselves.”

Warrick spent the majority of the day with receivers coach Jay Norvell.

“We instantly clicked,” Warrick said. “He’s a big family man and he seems like a genuine person. He will coach you hard, but at the same time he wants you to grow as a person, I could tell that from spending a day with him.”

Norvell has glowing words for the 2013 prospect as well.

“He compared me to Ryan Broyles when he first stepped on campus,” Norvell said. “[He says] my speed and competitiveness really stands out.”

One of the most memorable moments for the junior invitees was the opportunity to put on an OU jersey while standing in the Sooners locker room. Aside from getting the offer, putting on the crimson and cream really stood out to Warrick.

Warrick plans to commit before his senior season but will likely allow the process to play out well into the summer. He expects to attend Texas Tech’s junior day on Feb. 17 and possibly Texas’ junior day on Feb. 26.
