NORMAN, Okla. -- Tight end Taylor McNamara (San Diego/Westview) won't be coached by Mike Stoops, but no Oklahoma verbal commit in the 2012 class knows head coach Bob Stoops' younger brother better than McNamara.

One of the biggest reasons McNamara originally committed to Arizona was because of the relationship he developed with Stoops. And when Stoops was fired by Arizona after more than seven seasons, it didn't take long for McNamara to look around.
