“PostPoned my OU trip...still going tho,” Beaver posted on Twitter, although he later removed the tweet.
ESPN.com reported the issue was a communication breakdown with the departure of Brent Venables. Beaver said he was trying to schedule a mid-week visit to Norman before signing day.
He's scheduled to visit Arizona next weekend. Beaver has already visited Nebraska, Utah and Washington.
Another corner, St. Petersburg (Fla.) Gibbs' Gary Simon, is expected to visit Norman beginning Sunday and had an in-home visit with Bob and Mike Stoops last week.
SOONERS TARGET DECOMMITS FROM A&M
San Antonio Brandeis cornerback Colin Blake, who visited Oklahoma in mid-December, withdrew his commitment to Texas A&M on Saturday, making the decision public via Facebook.
“I will no longer be playing football at Texas A&M next year,” Blake posted. “I hope all the aggie fans and supporters out there can respect my decision and understand that it's my life and I need to do what's best for me. God bless.”
Blake (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) is high school teammates with longtime Sooners commit Kyle Marrs, an offensive lineman.
Blake committed to A&M in early September but still took official visits to OU, Florida State and, this weekend, TCU.
He said the TCU visit would be his last before signing day.
Former Sooners commit De'Vante Harris, also a cornerback, committed to Texas A&M last week.
WILLIAMS, PRICE SCHEDULED FOR WEEKEND VISIT
Initially, the Sooners didn't expect much action recruiting at running back.
Jenks' Alex Ross committed early and Daniel Brooks, another early commit, was going to get a shot at the position.
