Triple Option: Browne sets decision date

4/2/2012

Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. The waiting is over and the stage is set. Oklahoma's only quarterback offer, Max Browne (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline), said Monday that he is going to make his college decision Wednesday night after his team’s workout. Provided everything goes as planned, that would put his announcement around 9 p.m. CT. His four finalists are OU, USC, Washington and Alabama. Browne had an incredible visit to OU in March, and it sounds like he had as equally good of a visit to USC last weekend. Browne said he will not do any interviews until after his announcement. It feels like a battle between the Sooners and Trojans at this point.

2. The Sooners needed a ninth-inning rally to take last weekend’s series against Kansas State but better late than never. Evan Mistich drove in the series-winning run to help OU to a 4-3 win Sunday afternoon. OU (18-11, 4-5 in Big 12) hopes to ride that wave of momentum into a crucial three-game set at sixth-ranked Texas A&M (22-6, 4-2). Unlike every other weekend series, OU will play the Aggies on Thursday through Saturday. The final game of the series will be televised on ESPNU.

3. With the commitment of combo guard Isaiah Cousins (Mount Vernon, N.Y./Mount Vernon) last week, the OU basketball team is down to just one scholarship for the 2012 class. That last scholarship could go to power forward Matt Korcheck (Douglas, Ariz./Cochise CC). Korcheck, 6-foot-10, said Monday his final two schools are OU and Arizona. Korcheck made a visit to OU last week and said on his Facebook page that he can't go wrong with either choice.
