Oklahoma earned its 22nd verbal commitment Monday night from fullback/tight end Trey Millard, both SoonerScoop.com and OUInsider.com reported.

Millard, a four-star product out of Columbia, Mo., spurned his hometown Missouri Tigers for OU.

Millard also had offers from Iowa, Tennessee, South Carolina and Syracuse, among others.

Millard is ranked the No. 13 tight end nationally and the sixth-best overall player in Missouri by Rivals

Habern says he’s 100 percent
Ben Habern said he’s 100 percent healthy after suffering a back injury during summer workouts. The injury had caused a shuffle at the starting center position, and Trent Williams, Brody Eldridge and Brian Lepak had seen time in his absence.

"Ben’s been going now for a couple days,” said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. "I think early on, doctors were just being cautious. I never saw a grimace, or having any other issues, but I think they were trying to make sure it was full tilt. He needs to build on these couple days and continue it into this week, game week.”

PREPPING FOR BYU
Coach Bob Stoops says the Sooners began implementing specific preparations for BYU on Monday.

"We’re still doing a little of everything,” Stoops said. "We’re still competing against each other hard to keep the tempo and pace, being physical with each other.”

STOOPS HAPPY WITH KICKERS
Matt Moreland and Tress Way are locked in a tight race through camp to earn kickoff duties.
