Five-star recruit Jamarkus McFarland has eliminated LSU from consideration and will commit to either Oklahoma or Texas.

McFarland, a defensive tackle out of Lufkin, Texas, is the No. 13 overall prospect in the nation according to Rivals.com.


The 6-foot-3, 280-pound McFarland is also ranked No. 18 overall by Scout.com and No. 51 by ESPNU.

Hot ticket

Purchasing a ticket to Saturday’s game between No. 2 Texas Tech and No. 5 Oklahoma isn’t cheap.

Tickets are going for a minimum of $150 on the ticket-selling Web site StubHub.com.

Lower level seats are up to $1,500 apiece.

The game is also the best-selling OU home game in StubHub history based on dollar volume, according to company spokeswoman Joellen Ferrer.

Home grown

The state of Oklahoma has been a pipeline of talent for Texas Tech over the years. This year, nine Oklahomans are on the Tech roster, led by defensive tackle Colby Whitlock of Noble.
