Tom Hauck for ESPN.comK.J. Young, a three-star receiver from California, is excited about becoming a Sooner.
Zomalt has had some former players go on to play at Pac-12 schools. But there was something different about the Sooners. When Young committed to Oklahoma last week, the whole perception of the school has changed.
