*Dec. 12, though, Houston three-star defensive end and longtime Oklahoma State commit Ogbonnia Okoronkwo flipped to Oklahoma.

*Two days later, four-star defensive tackle Kerrick Huggins (Dallas Skyline) flipped from Texas A&M to OU.

The Sooners also lost Tulsa Union's Dalton Rodriguez, who was committed to OU as an offensive tackle, but switched to Tulsa because he wanted to play defense.

Among the expected junior-day visitors was Edmond Santa Fe quarterback Justice Hansen, who attended three OU games this season and currently holds offers from Arkansas and Missouri.

Hansen, whose father, Dusty, played on OU's baseball team in the 1990s, learned that junior day was canceled when OU co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel sent him a Facebook message.

“Yeah, I guess so,” Hansen said when asked if the postponement was frustrating. “But they've got their things to do.”
