Patience a virtue for OU?

Want one word to describe Oklahoma's recruiting strategy for the Class of 2013? Patience. It was stressed at the two junior days last spring, and it has been preached ever since.

Seems simple enough. OU coaches bring in a recruit and like what they see. They don't love but definitely like the potential and tells him it'll be in touch.

Some recruits see it as a throwaway line of saying, "Thanks but no thanks." And then something even more strange happens -- OU actually lives up to its word and gets in contact further down the road.
