    Your Recruiting Thoughts & Rants

    With three 2013 guys visiting this weekend I would like to think OU could get at least one verbal sometime soon. I guess we will see.

    If we're going to get a commitment from that group it'll be after they all get home. We don't push commitments while they are on campus

    USAO you think it'll pay off having Norvel take over East Texas recruiting area? It feels like we've been lacking in that area recently.

    Romar - another nice pickup but at a quality level a notch below what we are used to signing. Won't play for 3 yrs unless we have to throw him in, way undersized. Beat out Houston, Tulsa, Utah, North Texas.

    Overall, looking at this class, outside of two decent offensive players and maybe a couple on D, it's just OK. No superstars, no track sprinters, no powerlifting studs, just OK. We're not going to be a top 5 team with these guys. Kittle/Patton and Shipp continue sub-par recruiting.

    Somtimes track stars fall down when they touch the ball and sometimes power lifting guys never see the field. Maybe these guys are just football players and we will be surprised or at least I hope that's the case.

    We have no way of what they will do the next few yrs. A lot of people get caught up way too much with stars and then are disappointed when these recruits don't perform. (Aka RJ Washington)

    From what I understand OU's 2013 class could be as large as 26. They are at 21 now. A couple OL & LB commits would probably close it out to everyone's liking.

    Nlight1, it won't be to everyone's liking. Someone will gripe and/or complain about a certain player that we should have got. Just sayin'.

    You guys give the coaches too much room to breathe. He is listed as a ****ing linebacker in high school at 195 which means that he is probably closer to 185 and doesn't have the speed to play in the secondary. Retards like you make it easy for the coaching staff to underperform.

    Or if you would do your research before running your ****ing mouth, you would know that he's listed as a SS/OLB. And he plays both in highschool, not just LB. Mike Stoops was the one to offer and I think I'll trust him more then some jackass like you.

    Scout lists him as OLB, MLB. You ****. Yeah, Mike did a nice job with the linebackers this year! Nothing better than gap control with undersized linebackers!!! lol

    So Scout is the end all be all? Didn't realize that. Hmm who recruited those linebackers? Was it Mike? Or was it the guy who lost his job to Mike? Yeah he should of ran a different scheme and most likely will next year.

    Back to the point though, listed as a Safety by Rivals. ****

    The ESPN guys 6'1-6'2 the Rivals guys say 6'1-6'2 height and weight fluctuate between all kids profiles. I usually either go with a average


    and i cleared his thread up. Keep that shit here

    Those recruits should know the truth... they are undersized and can't stop the run. Don't come to a school where you are going to play gap control. Worst. Decision. Ever.

    ****es be crazy.


    Anyhoo, are we going to lose out on LJ Moore and Adrian Baker? I really wanted Robbins as well but there's a strong possibility we don't get any of them.

    I hope so. With how early everyone seems to be playing kids these days we should know soon. If they turn out great I'll go on record now as saying that I will never look at a recruiting rankings list again.

    Just for grins, last year's class was 10th ranked by Rivals and averaged 3.42 stars per player by my calculations. This year's verbals average 3.23.

    Looks like OU is offering anyone now.. Just keep the schollies for next year, I see 2 maby 3 that could play next season but a average at best class so far..

    Kish is the LB coach. Of course, you knew that, which is why you brought up Mike. Who recruited these undersized LBs?

    Brent Venables is an excellent recruiter of the wrong LBs...

    Ole Miss got that money

    If Tunsil does end up at #OleMiss I think it gives them a shot at the No. 1 overall class. #SigningDay

    Money. It's how the SEC recruits. Nothing is ever done about it. Yet, other schools get hammered for lesser shit.

    Yeh. We won't know if last year's class is any good until either end of next season or maybe season after. Takes a couple of years right? Used to take 3-4, but now since everyone is playing so early, 2 IMHO.

    Any one know anything about this Dakota Austin kid that's coming in this weekend? Looks like he's a 13 CB out of Lancaster, TX. Is he a late bloomer, grade issue, or are we just reaching for bodies right now?

    Couldn't agree more. I guess I didn't make my point sufficiently clear.

    My intended point was that people considered last year's class to be good, yet many are on the edge of the cliff about this year's class. I was comparing the stars to try to give people a little perspective. It's not that different by the poor metric of star comparison, but that's the only metric we have right now.

    As I say in scientific circles, "Criterion performance always beats the predictor variable(s)."

    Here's to having a shitty Texas team roll up 66 points on you and still getting a top 5 class out of nowhere.......
