Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: 2019 Wide Receiver Theo Wease Decommits from OU

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: 2019 Wide Receiver Theo Wease Decommits from OU

The 2019 prospect reopened his recruitment Monday evening, following in the footsteps of fellow wideout Arjei Henderson. 2019 wide receiver Theo Wease (Allen, TX) has announced that he is no longer committed to the Oklahoma Sooners. This comes as no surprise after last night’s announcement from fellow 2019 receiver Arjei Henderson. Respect my decision please... #Royal pic.twitter.com/wIx0jKCXqs— Theo Wease Jr (@weasejr_) April 25, 2017 Most people were cautiously optimistic at best when Wease and Henderson announced their commitments to Oklahoma at OU’s Junior day back in...
Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Recruiting Struggles Continue

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Recruiting Struggles Continue

Should Oklahoma fans start worrying about all of these decommitments? Good afternoon, Sooner nation! Oklahoma’s recruiting struggles haven’t quit come to an end. 2019 recruit Arjei Henderson announced over the weekend that he’ll be decommitting from Oklahoma. Unfortunately, that’s the risk you run with players who are over a year out. There shouldn’t be too much stock placed on that, though, at least for now: Oklahoma’s talent pool will be just fine. I’ll be worried if (and only if) this becomes an extended trend for the Sooners in recruiting. OU Links: Burnt Orange Nation,...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: Arjei Henderson De-Commits From OU

The 2019 WR committed in February. Oklahoma lost half of its nascent 2019 class on Sunday evening when Richmond, Texas wide receiver Arjei Henderson announced his decision to de-commit from OU. New Future pic.twitter.com/wRYNQ7USCv— Hendi™ (@king_hendi) April 24, 2017 Henderson announced he was committing to OU way, way back in February, along with Theo Wease who is, for now, still on board. Wease joined the 2019 class on the same day as Henderson, so it remains to be seen if Henderson’s decision will have any effect on him. This may be a simple case of a kid not understanding...
Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: Replacing Rising

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: Replacing Rising

Where will Oklahoma find its 2018 QB? As many Sooners fans were quick to point out last night, the defection of Cameron Rising from OU to Texas doesn’t exactly make Oklahoma thin at QB. Between Kyler Murray, Austin Kendall and Chris Robison, OU’s next wave of quarterbacks can easily carry the program into the next decade. But in the modern landscape of college football, it’s borderline reckless to go a year without signing a quarterback. There are just too many things that can happen. You can bet the OU coaching staff made this priority No. 1 as soon as they heard Rising’s decision....

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: Cameron Rising Flips to Texas

The sudden shift leaves OU without a QB commit in the 2018 class.

Oklahoma Sooners 2017 NFL Draft Profile: Jordan Evans

The Sooner legacy and co-captain garnered some buzz after OU’s Pro Day and continues to climb draft boards across the league. After being snubbed from an invite to the NFL Combine, former Oklahoma Sooners linebacker and co-captain Jordan Evans has since grabbed the attention of pro scouts with an impressive workout at OU’s Pro Day last month. Battling back through injuries and inconsistent play along with the rest of the defense through the last couple of seasons, Evans ended his career at Oklahoma in impressive fashion. Capitalizing on the momentum of his senior season, his...

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: On Losing Skid, Sooners Return Home for Kansas Series

Can OU turn it around against the ‘Hawks? Oklahoma started the season like gangbusters, which is why its 27-13, 5-4 record still looks pretty good. But the Sooners went an abysmal 1-7 on the recent road trip that took them to Texas, Michigan, Oral Roberts and Dallas Baptist. They haven’t won a game since April 9. The Sooners are hoping that the friendly confines of L. Dale Mitchell Park will get them back on the postseason track. They welcome Kansas this weekend for a three-game set. The (Probable) Matchups Friday: Jake Irvin (5-0, 1.30) vs. Taylor Turski (2-3, 2.54), 6:30 p.m.,...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: Eric Striker Joins OU as Defensive Recruiting Analyst

The former Sooner was a quarterback’s nightmare during his time in Norman. Former Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Eric Striker has joined the staff as a recruiting analyst, according to Bob Stoops. "Eric's going to do a great job for us," Stoops said. "Kinda helping us on the defensive side with recruits and their families when they're here, those kinds of things."

Oklahoma Sooners 2017 NFL Draft Profile: Joe Mixon

Mixon is a first-round talent, but who will take a chance on him? We’re now just a week out from the NFL Draft, and speculation is starting to run wild. Much of the talk centers around Joe Mixon, arguably one of the best all-around backs to come out of the University of Oklahoma ever and one of the most talented in the draft. Mixon’s Story Joe Mixon was very highly recruited prospect coming out of Freedom High School in Oakley, California. He was one of Bob Stoops’ biggest hauls ever in terms of blue chip status, as he was rated as a five-star recruit by multiple services. He...

Oklahoma Sooners 2017 NFL Draft Profile: Charles Walker

Which team will take a chance on the explosive defensive lineman? It’s been six months since Charles Walker left the Oklahoma Sooners to start working full-time towards the NFL Draft, but the ramifications of that decision won’t be fully known until Walker’s name is called in Philadelphia. Walker, a 6-2, 310 pound defensive tackle, certainly has the physical skill set to contribute at the next level. But with lingering questions about his departure from the team, where will Walker land? Walker’s Story Walker grew up in the lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, where he lived until...

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Cameron Rising Hype, the 2017 NFL Draft, and More!

2018 QB commit Cameron Rising is helping the Sooners on the recruiting trail. Good afternoon, Sooner Nation! Cameron Rising, a commit from the 2018 recruiting class, got some serious hype from ESPN’s Jeremy Crabree today, who called Rising the ‘recruit to watch’ from that class. He’s not the most out-and-out talented player from the class, but ESPN attributes some of OU’s recent recruiting success to the commitment of the pro-style quarterback. Though it’s hard for me to ascribe a lot of hype to a player who hasn’t even stepped foot on campus yet, a quick glance at the...

Oklahoma Sooners 2017 NFL Draft Profile: Dede Westbrook

Who will take a chance on the Biletnikoff Award winner with a checkered past? A few months ago, it seemed highly unlikely that Oklahoma’s standout, Heisman-finalist wide receiver Dede Westbrook would slip past the 2nd Round of the 2017 NFL Draft. In the middle of his breakout season, Westbrook demonstrated exceptional speed and hands and cruised to OU’s first Biletnikoff Award. But ever since troubling revelations about his past came to light, Westbrook has struggled to demonstrate that he’s a different man. There’s no denying the talent that Westbrook showed on Saturdays, but his...
