Arizona Western College running back Damien Williams has trimmed his list to two, he told

Williams will pick between Oklahoma and Texas Tech, eliminating Arizona State.

He visited Lubbock last weekend after a visit to Norman the weekend before.

Williams (6-foot-1, 215 pounds) committed to Arizona State out of high school, then was committed again to the Sun Devils before Dennis Erickson was fired in late November.


College of the Canyons offensive tackle Will Latu wanted to make sure he brought along his dad, Pete Latu, for his final visit before making his decision.

“I wanted him to feel spoiled like I do on my visits,” Will Latu said Monday, a day after his decision to commit to Oklahoma was made public.

Latu said he didn't tell his dad he'd decided on OU until the same time Saturday when he told the coaches.

“He was fired up and happy that I made my decision,” Latu said. “Everybody was shocked when I told them Saturday.”

Latu (6-5, 315) credited Sooner assistants Bruce Kittle and Josh Heupel with making him feel comfortable with the school before his arrival.
