Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. Don’t expect the dominoes to fall in terms of commitments for the Sooners. It’s possible Oklahoma will get one more commit here in the next week or so, but anybody looking for a Texas-like week where four or five recruits pledge in a span of days will be sorely mistaken. Running back Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas/Ranch) is a good way to start the 2013 class, regardless of what happens next.
2. Good to have football back, right? Everybody has their own personal preference about what the No. 1 storyline to watch for should be. I’m looking at tight ends and really want to see what Brannon “Moose” Green and Taylor McNamara bring to the table. They’ve certainly developed a bond and are both confident players. This next month will give us a small glimpse about whether or not these are names we’ll need to get familiar with in a hurry.
3. This is the final week of Oklahoma high school basketball playoffs, and there are a number of OU prospects still alive in the quest for a state championship. If you want to stay in the Oklahoma City area, walk-on C.J. Cole (Sperry, Okla./Sperry) and 2013 star Stevie Clark (Oklahoma City/Douglass) will be playing in separate games. And up in the Tulsa area 2013 prospects Jordan Woodard (Edmond, Okla./Memorial) and Shaquille Morris (Edmond, Okla./Santa Fe) will be involved in games of their own. Champions will be crowned Saturday night. Woodard and Clark are the two favorites in terms of their teams coming out on top.
