Weekend Rewind: Oklahoma
By Bob Przybylo
Three-star defensive end Dimarya Mixon (Mesquite, Texas/West Mesquite) has seen Oklahoma play three times this season. Each time he made sure to say he was an Arizona State commit.
Mixon is not saying that anymore. Mixon decommitted from the Sun Devils on Sunday afternoon but said he will not do any interviews until the completion of his senior season.
He took an official visit to OU in September and was a guest of OU for the Red River Rivalry against Texas. More good news came last weekend when Mixon bypassed senior homecoming to attend OU’s showdown with Notre Dame.
Mixon has been on OU’s radar since the spring, and he is in contact with OU defensive ends coach Bobby Jack Wright at least once a week.
He also made official visits to West Virginia and Arizona State in September. Mixon said in the spring the OU offer meant a lot to him. It’s no guarantee Mixon will end up with the Sooners, but it looks better more now than ever before.
