2013 WR Dannon Cavil: OU 'impressive'
By Brandon Chatmon
Walking through the halls of the Switzer Center had to feel weird for 2013 prospect Dannon Cavil (San Antonio/Madison). The cousin of former Texas receiver Kwame Cavil and son of Mike Cavil, Dannon was surrounded by crimson and cream when he visited Oklahoma for the Sooners junior day.
“All the championships and the legacy and stature of Oklahoma was very impressive,” said Cavil, who has not received an offer from the Sooners.
Cavil arrived in Norman on Friday before participating in junior day on Feb. 4. After his early arrival, he got the chance to sit down and chat with head coach Bob Stoops.
“He was talking about how when you come to Oklahoma, you play for championships,” Cavil said. “Everything was them beating Texas, everything from the footballs to the watches to the rings, everything was beating Texas.”
A 6-foot-3, 205-pound receiver prospect who recently picked up an offer from California, Cavil left Norman with a lasting impression.
“When you are at Oklahoma, they are going to work you to your full potential,” he said. “When you go there, they’re going to work you to your full potential and you’re going to get everything you want out of the program. If you’re a true competitor you should love it because it’s only going to make you better. It’s very exciting.”
In addition to Coach Stoops, Cavil spent time with receivers coach Jay Norvell.
“He’s a good coach, he’s going to work you hard,” Cavil said. “He’s going to be your best friend but also your worst nightmare at the same time. He’s going to work you to your full potential.”
Cavil is in no hurry to commit and plans to let the recruiting process play out before he begins narrowing down his list of potential colleges but he does plan to graduate early and go through spring football in 2013.
“I’m pretty set in stone about graduating in January,” Cavil said.
