NORMAN, Okla. -- If it wasn't for Texarkana (Texas) High football coach Barry Norton and his eye for potential, the Oklahoma Sooners likely would never have had a chance at verbal commit offensive guard John Michael McGee.

OU wouldn't have been alone. Had it not been for Norton, McGee said, no school would have had a shot at the four-star prospect.

At least not in football.
