Oklahoma football recruiting notebook: CB Cole Luke, LB E.J. Levenberry among visitors for OU-Notre Dame

Saturday's game drew a lot of visitors, including several who were committed elsewhere, along with quite a few juniors, including offensive tackle Braden Smith and quarterback Justice Hansen.

Safety Hatari Byrd of Fresno (Calif.) Central East was the only player committed to the Sooners who used the game against the Fighting Irish for his official visit, but several others came to Norman on unofficial visits.

That group included Tulsa East Central's Stanvon Taylor, who turned in a huge game on both sides of the ball in the Cardinals win over Tahlequah on Friday night.

Taylor was joined by Tulsa Union's Dalton Rodriguez and Jenks' Jordan Smallwood.

Cody Thomas, a quarterback who has committed to OU, was expected to make an official visit for the game but did not make the trip.


Douglass junior defensive end Deondre Clark already has an offer from the Sooners and was expected to be among the visitors Saturday night.

But Clark was also the beneficiary of some opportune recruiting by Notre Dame.

Fighting Irish safeties coach Bob Elliott was at the Trojans' win over Harrah on Friday night and extended an offer.

Clark also recently received offers from Arizona and Baylor recently.


Crete (Ill.) Monee wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was expected to be in Norman for Saturday night's game.

But the No. 1 wide receiver in the nation, who has both OU and Oklahoma State among his favorites, was not able to make the trip.

Treadwell's team had a game scheduled for Saturday.

Treadwell has not scheduled another visit to Norman.
