Oklahoma football: Dallis Todd: Class of 2014 has high expectations

by Jason Kersey Published: January 25, 2014

Wide receiver Dallis Todd was one of Oklahoma's earliest commitments in its 2014 recruiting class, and the 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect from La Mirada, Calif., has an opportunity to make an early impact next fall.

Throughout the recruiting process, Todd has gotten to know several of his fellow OU commitments, and said the group has very high expectations for itself.

“We want to win national championships and the Big 12,” Todd said. “Those are the expectations that everybody is talking about. There are a lot of expectations, but we don't let it get to us. We want to carry on the tradition that they left in the past, and keep Oklahoma the way it's been.”

Todd initially planned to enroll early and go through spring practices, but couldn't because his high school's first semester doesn't end until late January, after OU's spring semester begins.


Oklahoma's top three remaining 2014 targets all visited Norman last weekend, and were all on other campuses a week later.

Four-star Jenks safety Steven Parker, who remains uncommitted, visited Oklahoma State and will visit Auburn next weekend — only a few days before national signing day.

Douglass defensive end Deondre Clark committed to LSU last summer, but remains interested in the Sooners because of defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery. Clark visited LSU this weekend and will make a trip to Arizona State a week later.
