Among the football visitors to Norman on the last weekend before signing day was Baylor commit Dionte Savage.

Savage, an offensive lineman, has been committed to the Bears since Jan. 20 but has since taken visits to Texas Tech, Kansas and OU.

Savage (6-foot-5, 345 pounds) told ESPN.com this weekend that he would decide between the Bears and Sooners.

Savage, from Flint, Mich., played the last two seasons for Arizona Western, blocking for current Sooners running back Damian Williams during the 2011 season.

MEAD PICKS UP OFFER

Edmond Santa Fe quarterback Justice Hansen wasn't the only in-state player to pick up an offer from Oklahoma at Saturday's Sooners junior day.

Also picking up an offer was Tulsa Union wide receiver Jeffery Mead.

Mead (6-6, 175) picked up an offer from Oklahoma State later Saturday night. He already had an offer from Clemson, where he's being recruited by former Sooners defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

Mead is also a high-profile basketball recruit.

Mead and Hansen give the Sooners five in-state 2014 recruits with offers.

Those two join Douglass' Deondre Clark, Jenks' Steven Parker and Broken Arrow's Gyasi Akem.

DEBOSKIE'S RECRUITMENT HEATING UP

Cody Thomas and Kaelin Deboskie established fantastic rhythm last season at Colleyville (Texas) Heritage. So much so, that Thomas would like it to continue one day in college.

Deboskie (5-foot-9, 155 pounds) caught 54 passes for 964 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior last season, and accounted for 1,351 all-purpose yards. He moved to Colleyville from Chandler, Ariz., last spring and has become close on and off the field with Thomas, a 2013 Oklahoma quarterback commit.
