Lodge, the No. 4 wide receiver overall and No. 5 player in Texas, is scheduled to make the trip with 2014 OU defensive back commit and teammate Marcus Green and 2015 three-star DB Darrell Miller.
The No. 41 player overall, Lodge visited Oklahoma on Aug. 7 and came away much more impressed than he anticipated.
“It was actually more than I expected,” Lodge said. “I didn’t expect OU to be what OU is. I heard it was kind of boring but to me it is a great school. Academics are great. The wide receivers coach is great. The whole coaching staff is great. I love OU.”
Green is doing what he can to push the Sooners on Lodge, but it’s going to be a tough sell for any program in pursuit. He already has offers from Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, Iowa, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UCLA and Utah.
Lodge also said he would like to attend Texas A&M’s highly-anticipated showdown against Alabama on Sept. 14 and a Florida game to be determined.
Until Saturday comes about, though, he’ll be focused on doing what he can to help the Longhorns defeat Allen. Last week, in a 38-28 win over defending Class 4A state champion Denton Guyer, he caught six passes for 147 yards and a touchdown.
