Inside linebacker Jaydan Bird (Conway Springs, Kan.), who’s in
Norman this weekend, committed to the Sooners on Saturday morning before OU first’s open scrimmage.

“OU is a school with great tradition, the coaches are cool and laidback,” Bird said. “OU has a good academic program. I felt really comfortable with the school.”

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Bird has scholarship offers from Kansas, Kansas State and

Bird is OU’s fourth verbal commitment, joining linebacker Ronnell Lewis (Dewar), defensive end Terry Franklin (Mansfield, Texas) and running back Jonathan Miller (
Garland, Texas).

Bird spent most of the scrimmage following defensive coordinator Brent Venables around.
