The Oklahoma football team had plenty of recruits at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium for Saturday's win over Texas A&M.

Among those scheduled to be in attendance was junior college safety target Gerald Bowman.

Bowman's offers, in addition to OU, include USC, Tennessee, Arizona State, Nebraska and Pitt among others.

Also planning to be in attendance for the game were commits Daniel Brooks, Laith Harlow, De'Vante Harris, Durron Neal and Sterling Shepard.

The game wasn't only critical to this year's recruiting but also had a solid group of 2013 recruits in attendance.

The in-state players included Lawton MacArthur running back Darius Graham, Edmond North offensive lineman Heath Newland and Tulsa East Central athlete Stanvon Taylor. Lawton defensive end D.J. Ward, who had been to every Sooners home game so far this season, did not attend.

Out-of-state juniors expected to be at Saturday's game were all from Texas — Plano Prestonwood Christian tight end Christian Morgan, Arlington Heights defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson and Dallas Jesuit offensive linemen J.J. Gustafson and Jordan Mastrogiovanni.
