Triple Option: Big weekend for QB Scott

4/19/2012

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

1. OU quarterback target Brayden Scott (Tahlequah, Okla./Sequoyah) has couple of important days this weekend. Scott left for Atlanta on Thursday and will participate in the Elite 11 QB regional event, followed by the NIKE Football Training Camp event Saturday. He realizes this is his chance to shine and said he is hoping to get an invitation to the Elite 11 finals to The Opening. Scott will be evaluated in person by OU quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel next Friday.

2. He didn’t make the ESPN 150, but OU fans have to be happy with the evaluation of defensive end commit Matt Dimon (Katy, Texas/Katy). Not much was made nationally when Dimon committed to the Sooners, but he was given a four-star rating and is ranked No. 17 at defensive end by the ESPN scouts. OU has two of the top three running backs and two of the top 17 defensive ends -- not a bad start to the 2013 class.

3. Following winning a third consecutive state championship, point guard Stevie Clark (Oklahoma City/Douglass) is not taking any breaks. He is just coming off playing for Team USA in a tournament in Germany and already is hitting the ground on the AAU circuit. Clark, ranked No. 58 in the ESPN 60, is one of the top 2013 targets for Lon Kruger. And with the Sooners adding size with D.J. Bennett and Ryan Spangler in the last week, it will allow OU to focus hard on Clark and four-star point guard Jordan Woodard (Edmond, Okla./Memorial).
