    due partially to the Monken departure

    I think you could say exclusively due to Monken. He's the only reason he committed there in the first place. Monken was with his dad at Jacksonville.

    In Del Rio's interview he hinted there was more, but who knows. I didn't care to read the whole thing. Just saw that brief part.

    EDIT: Here's the statement "Del Rio did confirm that Monken’s departure was part of the reason for his decommitment, but he added that there were other reasons as well."

    Always smooth

    I think Poke fans have been expecting Del Rio to de-commit ever since Lunt and Walsh both showed they could run the offense effectively. I don't blame him not wanting to come in and wait for 3 years to get significant PT.

    The other reason was likely that he realized he would have to go to OSU.

    Surely we're nearing the end of our DE recruiting. We have really got to close on some DTs at this point.

    was stoops down there to see Prevot as well? and does this commitment put an end to us pursuing his teammate...we seem set at DE but id love to have both those guys

  21. #71
    We are done with DE. Prevot projects as LB in college.Yes Stoops was seeing them both Prevot is still commited to USC but if USC picks off the Texas DT the # game will likely force them to let Prevot go


    Okoronkwo is a great player you guys. Dimon,Ward and him are a stellar DE haul

    Is Dimon possible DT?

    I've been seeing this idea tossed around a lot lately. Lots of folks are suggesting that Tapper and Dimon could grow into DTs. I personally would prefer to see what these guys could do on the edges, but we're whiffing on every DT target so we may have to beef these guys up and move them inside.

    I wasn't doubting you just adding my opinion. The kid's smart enough not to say that the only reason he chose the school was because of their offensive coordinator. This kid had more attractive options and it speaks volumes that he decommits the same day Monken takes the another job.

    Got hurt and we redshirted him.

    OKOR looks pretty good in his film. Quick off the ball and was rarely pushed back at only 220 playin DT. Makes me think of a Demario Pleasant type guy. Demario wasnt a starter, but was absolutely a hitter. BV called him a knockback guy that ran through the ball carrier instead of hitting and holding on for dear life like many of our players do now. Again, OKOR is quick off the ball and accelerates very well. Seems to have a non stop motor too. Needs to disengage quicker or he will get swallowed up in college.

    Truth. I believe Prevot is 86 in that video if anyone is wondering. Okoronkwo looks really explosive.

    Great free read from Rivals http://oklahoma.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1448530

    Okornokwo, the son of an admitted Sooner fan, says if you'd have told him a year ago he'd be committed to Oklahoma he wouldn't have been able to believe it.

    "It's unbelievable, it's an unbelievable experience, I'm so happy I got to make my parents proud, I never thought in a million years I'd end up at a place like Oklahoma."

    This kid will be a freak with some more weight. Good hand technique and use of leverage.
    Fyi, can we move this the Recruiting forum? Took me a while to find this.

    From what I recently read on him, we should be just fine. He "never thought he'd get the chance to play at a place like Oklahoma." --> to paraphrase. The kid is ecstatic to come to OU.

    His SR highlights are fantastic. Long film vs numerous teams tells me this kid is consistently putting forth a full effort. I am very excited about our future DL with him and Dimon coming in.

    The Oklahoma commit was an all-state honorable mention, helping a defense that held six opponents to less than 10 points.

    Hard to understand how these OSU interlopers on our boards have time to take from having sex with their animals at the vet school.

    After seeing Obo's SR year highlights, you should still be pissed you lost this guy; not trying to boast about his replacement.
