“Every two hours, ‘I'm sticking with Cal; I'm going to Oklahoma ... I'm sticking with Cal; I'm going to Oklahoma,'” Cavil said.
So he called Norvell back the next day and asked, “Can I still take that visit?”
Cavil is glad he did. He became Oklahoma's fourth receiver commitment in its 2013 class, joining Austin Bennett (Manvel, Texas), Jordan Smallwood (Jenks) and KJ Young (Perris, Calif.).
He may have flipped commitments twice since mid-December, but there's strong evidence this pledge is ironclad: Texas swooped in with an offer after he'd flipped to the Sooners, and the self-proclaimed “Texas legacy” said no.
His father, Michael, was a Longhorn defensive back in the 1980s, and his cousin Kwame played receiver at Texas in the late '90s.
Cavil did have a cousin, Ben, who was a lineman at Oklahoma in the early ’90s.
“There's been a lot of record breakers at Oklahoma, and I want to be the next one,” Cavil said.
