NORMAN — Four-star prospect Tahaan Goodman visited Oklahoma last weekend, and one tweet the Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., safety posted Friday night sent some of Sooner Nation into a frenzy.

“Wow don’t even got a host….smh weak,” tweeted Goodman, who Rivals.com ranks as the nation’s fourth-best 2013 safety.

Sunday, Goodman (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) told Rivals that the host issue had nothing to do with OU coaches.

“They had someone my host but he just left; we had him in the restaurant so I just didn’t have (a host),” Goodman said. “I guess a lot of the players weren’t there, because they were still back home or whatever with their families. I think I had one and then he just left.”

Goodman said he wound up hanging out with senior-to-be Roy Finch.

“He kind of helped me out,” Goodman told Rivals. “I hung out with him and he showed me around.”

Goodman went on to say he loved the coaching staff, the possibility of early playing time excites him and he’s intrigued by OU’s solid record of sending defensive backs to the NFL.
