Dallis Todd was happy to make his college choice early in the recruiting process.

For the 6-foot-5 receiver from La Mirada, Calif., who verbally committed to Oklahoma last April, there was a lot to like about the Sooners throughout the recruiting process.

But once football season got under way, the OU offense didn't look like it had in the past and Todd began to feel some uneasiness with his choice.

“At the beginning of the year they were running the ball a lot,” Todd said. “I'm not going to lie, that made me a little bit nervous.”

It wasn't until quarterback Trevor Knight's 348 yards and four touchdown performance in the Sooners' 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl that Todd gained ultimate confidence in his decision.

“As the season went on the quarterbacks starting to do a better job of throwing the ball and the offense showed more balance,” Todd said. “And the Sugar Bowl really made me comfortable again in my choice, because Trevor Knight showed what he can do with his skill set. That made me excited to go play with him and under his leadership for the next two or three years.”
