    #10 2018 LB in the country from Cali powerhouse Junipero Serra

    – Merlin Robertson: We are working on getting more details but we are told that the Sooners have been making some in-roads with highly coveted 2018 LB, Merlin Robertson (Gardena, CA) and that the big man is expected to visit OU at some point. We’re hoping to get a date for you all very soon but wanted to go ahead and put him on your radar.

    Stays in Cali. Move on

    Looks like we offer him the best chance to play early and win a National Championship...BOOMER!

    Want, want, want. Hard to imagine him leaving California, but he's a first guy off the bus linebacker based on the 24/7 photo

    Ain't happening unfortunately.

    He plays for Junipero Serra, which is basically a feeder program for USC. If the sooners can pull him out of there, then that would be a Huge coup.

    May 3rd, 2016 Sooners Won't Sleep on Serra

    "No my high school coach, coach (Scott) Altenberg called me and told me Oklahoma wanted to offer me. So he gave me coach Kish's number and told me to call. When I called that's when me and coach Kish were talking and he offered me a scholarship," Robertson recalled. "He was asking me questions about what do I know about the school. Then he was just telling me how good of a football team they have every year and how academics are there."

    Same.

    We never thought we would have a Cali pipeline until we did. Never thought we would puck up kids from Ohio or Michigan until we did. Tapper is out of Baltimore. Never thought we would pull kids out of deep FLA or IMG Academy, until we did.

    Hard part is getting them on campus.

    I don't see how USC will let this one get away but I'd be pleasantly surprised. He probably has 3 or 4 friends going to USC already.

    USC is filling up at LB. I think with a good season, and a young and energetic coaching staff, we might be able to grab either Raymond Scott or Merlin Robertson out of Cali

    Maybe Kish can pull a rabbit out of his hat on this one.

    His interview made it seem like he just wants to be wanted. I can see USC getting a little fat and happy with their LB commits and our guys being willing to put in the work, especially if Kish keeps this resurgence up, but can also imagine a smaller school (Cal) making him their number one target.

    Lock in White then he won't have many kids to worry about outside of Robertson.

    I'll be perfectly happy with which ever of Scott and Robertson USC doesn't want

    Brainiacs says he's going to be here for the Tulane game:

    This one is a long shot, but would be a big time pick up. (I still think it depends on what USC does.)

    I want him just because of his name.

    He's an old-school punisher at linebacker, plus he has a perfect name for a little Sooner Magic. Kish needs to put on the recruiting pimp coat and land that commitment.

    And on the flip side, we seem to have lost the Bishop Gorman pipeline.

    We got, arguably, the best player to ever come out of that school. I'm okay with that. There have only been a few other players I coveted from there over players from different regions. Getting a Cali pipeline and an IMG pipeline established makes up for it big time.

    I wish he was coming for a bigger game day atmosphere because that's the thing we can offer that sc & ucla can't.. They've got no gameday atmosphere...

    Getting him here for a big conference game would have been better--however, just getting him to campus is huge.

    It would be nice, but it would take Sooner Magic to get him.

    There's only going to be a few. No school is going to have a DeMarco Murray every year. The point is, they've had a couple of NFL players come through Gorman since Reynolds and several 4 star guys and OU hasn't gotten a sniff.....and outside of 2017, OU definitely wasn't landing their first options.

    Hindsight is 20/20. We have a new head coach and a seemingly more aggressive approach to recruiting. No use quibbling over something that can't be changed--plus, if anyone could get a pipeline reestablished, I wouldn't be surprised if Riley could.

    Now? We just came off of the biggest non-conference road win any team has had this season; Mayfield showed out like a boss; several of our biggest and best recruits are coming in for the game; most importantly, the defense against tOSU was fast, aggressive and balled out.

    Go get him, coaches.

    If we pull this kid out of THAT school then Riley is going to be some sort of Bud/Barry/Bob Megazord in coaching circles.

    Need to get a poly pipeline established. Faamaatu is a good start.
