As the Sooners prepare for their first game without Trey Millard, they might've found his replacement for the future.

Oklahoma picked up a commitment from San Antonio Churchill athlete Dimitri Flowers on Wednesday evening, the night before the Sooners play at Baylor.

Flowers (6-foot-3, 219 pounds) had been committed to Boise State until Wednesday, when he first withdrew his commitment to the Broncos then switched to the Sooners.

Flowers told Scout.com that the Sooners told him they planned on using him the same way they've used Millard — as a fullback, running back and tight end.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops alluded to the commitment on Twitter — a first for Stoops.

“Boom 210! #Sooners #TheresOnlyOne,” Stoops' official Twitter posted.

San Antonio's area code is 210.

Flowers also had offers from Houston and Nevada but had been committed to Boise State since June 1.

The Sooners had been interested in Flowers in the spring but had backed off following his commitment. But Bobby Jack Wright recently made a visit to Churchill and resumed the relationship and OU soon offered Flowers.

Flowers is the 15th commitment for the 2014 class for the Sooners and the seventh from Texas.

He's the first in nearly two months.

His commitment is nonbinding. Flowers can sign beginning Feb. 5.
