Offensive tackle Dan Skipper (Arvada, Colo./Ralston Valley) has seen his interest pick up recently. His first offer came in January and things haven’t really slowed down.

Despite several offers, Skipper still hadn’t heard from one of his top five schools: Oklahoma. Instead of waiting around, he took the initiative and searched for OU offensive tackles coach Bruce Kittle on Facebook and sent him a message. That got the ball rolling for what has been an eventful few weeks for Skipper and the Sooners.

“OU has always been in my top five. I started sending messages and emails to schools and seeing who would respond,” Skipper said. “When you think of major college football in the Midwest, you think OU. I’ve grown up a Big 12 guy, and the Sooners are always there.”
