Triple Option: Bester cleared by OU 

July, 27, 2012
Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. There was some good news for OU fans Thursday night with the word that junior college transfer wide receiver LaColtan Bester is no longer a question mark. Bester will join the team immediately as there are no NCAA clearinghouse issues as it pertains to juco transfers. He was a star last season at East Mississippi Community College, helping lead the team to the NJCAA championship. Academic issues still remain for juco signees wide receiver Courtney Gardner and offensive tackle Will Latu.

2. Did you get enough of Bob Stoops and Landry Jones on Thursday? If not, revisit their trip to ESPN’s Bristol headquarters on SoonerNation. Stoops and Jones were any and everywhere for the ESPN car wash. They were on the radio, on TV and even participated in a 20-minute online chat. This was the second year in a row for Jones to be front-and-center on ESPN. Last year he was joined by wide receiver Ryan Broyles when the duo went through the ringer.

What a difference a couple of months make. When the initial ESPN 150 came out in April, Oklahoma fans weren’t concerned about not having any commits at wide receiver. But following the indefinite suspensions to Trey Franks, Jaz Reynolds and Kameel Jackson, the game has changed for the Sooners.

Luckily, OU still has wide receivers coach Jay Norvell. Coming off the most highly-touted group of receivers in program history with the class of 2012, Norvell is slowly trying to work his magic once again for the class of 2013.

Jack in Oklahoma City asks: We now have two defensive end commits, but we’ve offered so many more. Are we done at this spot for this class?

Bob Przybylo: Most likely not. It believe Oklahoma's target has been to get three defensive ends for the class of 2013. D.J. Ward (Lawton, Okla./Lawton) and Matt Dimon (Katy, Texas/Katy) are a great start and OU is in good position with a number of quality ends.

You’ll have to forgive defensive end Jordan Sherit (Tampa, Fla./Hillsborough) if he's not too familiar with Oklahoma. Until the last recruiting cycle, the Sooners weren’t exactly hitting up the Sunshine State to try to find talent. But the OU coaches are now.

OU signed four high school products from Florida for its 2012 class and already has offered several 2013 prospects from the state.

Sherit, 6-foot-3, 230 pounds and on the ESPNU Watch List, didn’t know too much about the program, but he likes what he is learning through his research and conversations with OU defensive ends coach Bobby Jack Wright.

Hillsborough (Tampa, Fla.) defensive end Jordan Sherit continues to receive new offers each week and with it there is a new group of programs that are aggressively recruiting the 6-foot-3, 235-pound junior.

"Last week Notre Dame, Stanford and Mississippi State all offered," Sherit said.

Last week was Sherit's spring break but he failed to visit any programs.
