Triple Option: Rettig visit rescheduled

By Bob Przybylo

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

1. With the indefinite suspensions of wide receivers Jaz Reynolds, Trey Franks and Kameel Jackson, there are a couple of options Oklahoma could go regarding its 2013 receiver class. I explored a list of some receivers that the Sooners have been in contact with in the past and trying to make sure the Sooners stay in their good graces. The other option is to keep looking at new prospects, and Jay Norvell did that Monday with the offer to four-star athlete Alvin Bailey (Seffner, Fla./Armwood). Bailey is ranked the No. 5 athlete in the nation and No. 49 in the ESPN 150. Expect a lot of movement at the position in the next couple of weeks.

2. OU’s three-game sweep of Baylor has Sunny Golloway’s club on its biggest high of the season. However, part of that could slip away if the Sooners do not take care of business Tuesday night against TCU. In a previous meeting against the Horned Frogs, the Sooners blew a late lead. TCU is ranked No. 33 in the RPI, while the Sooners are ranked No. 48, according to Warren Nolan’s RPI system. With no Oklahoma City Thunder playoff contest combined with 50-cent hot dogs and cokes at the game, this is a chance for a quality mid-week attendance and is an important non-conference battle.

3. Last week's suspensions forced quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel to postpone his visit to Hayden Rettig (Los Angeles/Cathedral), but it didn’t cancel the trip. Heupel is expected to visit Rettig this week. And after a long conversation with Los Angeles Cathedral coach Kevin Pearson last week to explain things, Heupel has made sure Pearson and Rettig understand that it is not a reflection of loss interest. The Sooners are still very high on Rettig.
