This recruiting class, the Sooners have locked up their first 5-star wide receiver in the Bob Stoops era in Trey Metoyer.
OU hopes to snag another from the class of 2012.
Dorial Green-Beckham, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound wideout out of Springfield, Mo., who figures to be one of the top overall recruits in the next class, is high on the Sooners' wish list. And OU appears to be one of Green-Beckman's top choices, too.
Green-Beckham holds numerous offers, including Alabama, Florida, LSU, Michigan and Ohio State, but the race for his services could come down to OU, Arkansas and Missouri.
BUNDAGE ON THE RISE
A list released by the National College Scouting Association ranking the performers at this month's US Army National Underclassmen Combine selected Douglass lineman Cayman Bundage as the No. 4 player among the 500 in attendance at the San Antonio event.
The list was put together by NCSA Director of Football Recruiting Randy Taylor, along with former college recruiting coordinator Bob Chmiel and three former NFL players, Othello Henderson, Marcus Price and Ryan Neufeld.
Bundage has been on the radar of several Division I programs after strong performances at camps last summer, including one in Dallas and another at Florida State. The Seminoles, along with Oklahoma, Nebraska, Alabama, Miami, North Carolina, California and a few others have stayed in contact with Bundage as he prepares for his senior season.
Bundage started at left tackle for the Trojans in their run to the Class 4A state title last fall, but his college future is at center or guard. He was Douglass' starting center as a freshman and sophomore, before the need increased for him to be on the edge.
NORMAN'S JOHNSON COMMITS TO HOUSTON
The turnaround for the Norman football team couldn't have happened without the play of the offensive line, and now one of its leaders is getting rewarded.
Senior offensive lineman Zach Johnson committed to Houston this weekend, said Norman coach Greg Nation.
Johnson, 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds, anchored the line that helped pave the way for junior running back Donovan Roberts to rush for more than 2,000 yards in 2010. Johnson has been named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State team. The game is in July.
LUETJEN PICKS LOUISIANA-MONROE
The good things keep coming for Hennessey senior Derrick Luetjen. The defensive tackle played an integral role in leading the Eagles to their first state championship.
And now he's ready for the next step. Luetjen recently committed to Louisiana-Monroe, saying the atmosphere at his visit was great, and he likes the coaching staff.
Luetjen, 6-foot-3 and 270 pounds, was a first-team Little All-City selection by The Oklahoman and a second-team All-State selection.
Luetjen said he is a solid commit for the Warhawks. However, Luetjen also received an offer from Tulsa on Monday and said he will listen though he's not sure if anything will change.
