NewsOK Sports 10:26 a.m. Welcome to the Power Lunch chat. Ryan Aber will be on at 11 a.m., answering your OU questions, as the Sooners are picking up steam in recruiting.

In case you missed it, OU football landed its third commitment in the last nine days in offensive guard Dominique Hearne:
Ryan Aber 11:03 a.m. All right. Time to get started. Keep the questions coming
dooby 11:03 a.m. do you think Haughton will end up at OU? Also, how does the upcoming facilities upgrade and it's scale compare to that of other schools in the Big 12 right now? Is it close to the scale of what osu had?
Ryan Aber 11:04 a.m. I think OU feels like they're in pretty good shape with Khalil Haughton, the three-star safety out of Waco (Texas) Midway. Haughton is likely to pick between OU and Baylor.
Ryan Aber 11:06 a.m. As for the stadium upgrades, I don't think it'll be to the same scale as OSU's, in part because they don't have that far to go. That said, these upgrades will be primarily for creating more suite space/improving the suite space on the press box side of the field and making the game experience better for fans.
Guest 11:07 a.m. What can you attribute the surge in recruiting to?
Sr. 11:07 a.m. Is Bob Stoops making more of an effort onthe recruiting trail, or is it his assistants more?
Ryan Aber 11:09 a.m. I'll throw these two together.
