@BPrzybylo JROTC teaching opportunity for father is bringing #Sooners commit DJ Ward (@sooner_dj) to OKC Douglass, Ward confirms #OKPreps
Douglass is home to '14 offer Deondre Clark
Good article on DJ Ward in the Oklahoman
When he visited Norman for OU's spring game in early April, he didn't expect to walk away having committed.
But during the day, he felt a pull.
“I knew where everything was and what to expect,” Ward said. “It just felt like a fit. There was no more exploring that I needed to do.”
Sitting with his sister, Courtney, and parents, during the game, Ward told them he wanted to commit.
“Are you sure,” Demetrius asked.
“It's time,” Ward said.

Ward is waiting for OSAA approval (expected soon,) so he was unable to participate in scrimmage
D.J. Ward, the No. 1 player in the state for the 2013 class and an OU commitment, is apparently moving again.
Ward left Douglass and enrolled in Southmoore on Thursday, sources at both schools told The Oklahoman.

Can he still play?
Well, the obvious question is why did he move again?
Thing to keep in mind with DJ is his grades are fine and he is not known to be a trouble maker, so he is on course to be a Sooner. It'll suck ass if he has to miss his SR year.

Whats up with this guy? He is trying to blow his whole senior year. Would OU still honor the commitment to this guy if he didn't play his senior year?
Didnt Colvin sit out his senior year?
He's a beast...not sure what's going on with his schooling, but I think the take away is Douglass sucks and Southmoore is good?
His dad works at Douglass, but they bought their home in the Southmoore district.
Carey Murdock said his family bought a home inside the Southmoore district and therefore he could not remain at Douglas despite his dad working there.
A caller called in to the Rush yesterday talking about it. Dusty and Teddy hadn't heard about it but said they didn't like it. They equated it to free agency. He may be the #1 player in the state but he may also be too big for his britches. It could be another Maurice Clarrett situation.
Its nothing nefarious or bad or ego and it certainly isnt a Maurice Clarrett situation He cant play at Douglass because his home is in a different district.
Sounds like this kid is Maurice Claret 2.0
The OSAA is about as fast as the NCAA at granting these waivers sometimes. Although, from the info that is out there it really should be a an open and shut thing. I would expect him to be able to play although he may have to sit a few games.
ok this last picture is just disturbing!
he just tweeted that he is not playing this season.
Dude plans to enroll at OU in January. Reminds me of John David Booty.
Any confirmation on early enrollment?
We all know Quincy Russell hasn't made it in yet. Does anyone know if DJ Ward has made it in yet? Same with Ahmed Thomas?
Ward and Thomas as listed as OU students this morning!
Saw a tweet that said Stoops announced during his presser yesterday that Ward hasn't been cleared by the NCAA, what's that about? Is it simply a result of him transferring before his senior year?
It's the multiple transfers he did in a short period of time.
He will be cleared sometime in October. These things take time you know.
