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.
TRINITY DUO DOESN'T SHOW
Two of the biggest absences among the recruits in town for Saturday's game were Euless (Texas) Trinity's pair of defensive stars: defensive end Polo Manukainiu, a Sooners commit, and linebacker target Brian Nance.
Manukainiu and Nance instead were in Waco, Texas, for Baylor's game against Missouri.
NEAL COMES UP BIG YET AGAIN
After missing overtime of a loss a couple weeks ago, Neal continues to come up big for DeSmet (Mo.).
Neal scored three touchdowns in the Spartans' 35-28 win over Eureka to send DeSmet to the state quarterfinals.
Neal's biggest touchdown was a 41-yarder late in the fourth that proved to be the difference. He caught a slant and broke free to help push the Spartans over the top.
Neal's team faces St. Louis University High next week in a rematch of a double overtime loss that had Neal on the sidelines.
