Oklahoma held its first scrimmage of the 2013 preseason Saturday on Owen Field.

The Sooners went about 100 plays in the almost two-hour scrimmage, which was closed to the media and public.

OU will take its first day off of the preseason Sunday before returning to practice Monday in preparation for the season opener Aug. 31 at home against Louisiana-Monroe.

THOMPSON REJOINS TEAM

Injured quarterback Kendal Thompson returned to the team this week after suffering a fractured foot on the first day of practice.

Thompson had been away from the team after undergoing surgery Aug. 1 before going to Thursday's practice.

He was at Owen Field for Saturday's closed scrimmage as well.

Thompson was in a three-way competition for the starting quarterback job before suffering the injury.

Blake Bell and Trevor Knight are battling for the spot.

CANNON COMMITS TO BAYLOR

Oklahoma lost out on four-star wide receiver prospect K.D. Cannon, who committed Saturday to Baylor.

Cannon (5-foot-10, 163 pounds), from Mount Pleasant, Texas, had narrowed his list of potential colleges to Baylor, OU, Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Florida.

The Sooners have three receivers — Mark Andrews, Jeffery Mead and Dallis Todd — committed in their class of 2014.
