    Caleb Kelly was an absolute coup a few years ago out of Cali; Merlin Robertson would be the coup of this class, imo, when you look at his ranking and where we would be pulling him out of (state and school). We would be walking into USC territory and stealing a blue chip.

    That's a particular school that we've continuously recruited & never been successful... To get Merlin, would certainly be an upset & a coup for this staff..

    I read somewhere (probably TFB) that Merlin wanted to commit Saturday night. That he loved OU and the family atmosphere. This may really happen.

    He definitely loved his visit.

    Merlin is different; he loved the family atmosphere. He is a LDS member and it's my understanding that most people were surprised at his maturity. That he was constantly opening doors for the female staff members walking him and his dad around campus. Additionally, someone on OUr staff, their brother was Merlin's dad's football coach at Carson High School. That's not just Southern Cal High School Football, that's South Bay Football which is a tight tight group, especially among Samoans. Carson High, along with San Pedro High, Banning High (Jamelle Holieway's alma-mater) and Narbonne dominated that area for years. So, there was a natural connection there making us a real player to get him. Was told they had BBQ on Sunday with that same staff member just to reminisce about the "old" days and that Robertson's dad loves the family atmosphere at OU. So, hopefully that's enough to draw him away.

    Hope we land this kid. However, I do hate when we invest a lot of time in kids that are just bound to stick close to home, That's just part of the game though.

    It seems he wants to wait until signing day & wants to visit lsu & sc.. We've got a better shot than I thought we would have.. He possibly could be a silent commit after his other visits.. OU set the bar high for his future visits..

    Good news is that unless something changes, I've read SC is full at LB.

    they would make room for Robertson, there's word they may part ways with Raymond Scott just to get Robertson and if so Raymond Scott will be up for grabs

    They want Solomon tuliaupupu more it seems, they'd drop Raymond for him.

    I get the feeling it's going to be down to cal, byu, Oregon and Oklahoma for robertson at the end.

    Another crystal ball today. Yet again from an insider that is very selective with his picks.
