Three recruits, including nation’s top WR prospect, still considering Sooners

Last year, coveted wide receiver Julio Jones provided the only drama for Sooner fans on signing day, when he decided to sign with Alabama over Oklahoma.

This year, at least three recruits still considering the Sooners could wait until Wednesday, signing day, before announcing which school they will sign with.

→WR Rueben Randle (Bastrop, La.)

Wide receivers coach Jay Norvell has put the full-court press on the nation’s top wide receiver, but will it be enough? Randle will be deciding between OU, Alabama and LSU.

→WR Terry Hawthorne (East St. Louis, Il.)

Hawthorne is telling hometown media that he plans to sign with Illinois, where he’s been committed since last summer. But there is some buzz that Hawthorne hasn’t ruled out the Sooners just yet.

→ATH Joshua Evans (Irvington, N.J.)

Evans has been pursued by a number of schools, including Florida, Pittsburgh and Purdue. But the Sooners remain in his top four heading into signing day.
