Oklahoma is hosting SEVEN five-star targets in multiple classes, with four coming in for 2023 (two are OU commits), one in 2024 (David Stone), and two in 2025 (LB Noah Mikhail and CB Deyjhon Pettaway). What do the Sooners need to do to make sure this weekend goes off as it should, and how many commits come out of the HUGE visit weekend come NSD in December? How many 2024 visitors this week do Brandon and Parker feel will happen out of the visitors this weekend and more!
Also, the duo talks about how to stop an ailing Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders, and does the OUinsider duo trust that the Sooners’ defense will stop the Cowboys? How do they feel OU can come out victorious and what are their predictions?
All of that and more is in this latest episode of OUinsider: Under the Visor Sooners Podcast!
00:00- Podcast intro
03:00 – Drumm’s dad jokes in conjunction with another big-name 2024 commit at another program visiting Norman this weekend.
05:00 – Finally a night game in Norman helping OU on recruiting trail. Bashing of Big 12 and 11 am kicks.
06:30 – OU/OSU breakdown… Spencer Sanders talk and his health… Sooners odds to pull off the “upset.”
10:00 – Trusting this Sooners team is hard, but can it be trusted this weekend… maybe? Maybe not? Probably not? Likely not? The duo breaks it down.
16:00 – Sooners offense needs to do what to win? Ride RB Eric Gray? Marvin Mims be consistent catching the ball? Dillon Gabriel be on? Make sure Brayden Willis or Jalil Farooq get touches?
21:00 – Defense? Danny Stutsman hate. Lack of depth at certain positions causing issues in late games and more.
26:00 – Despite the issues on the field, Sooner recruting has still been going well. Not too many decommits and the 2023 class has stuck, outside of three decommits this whole cycle.
33:00 – Why this weekend is so HUGE for the Sooners on recruting trail this weekend… What is the biggest thing OU needs to do this weekend to close out (outside of winning) this class and spring forward with ’24,’25, and ’26 classes.
38:00 – Five-star target talk with DL David Hicks, DB Peyton Bowen updates…
41:00 – NIL talk and the Crimson and Cream NIL update. University backing (YOU CAN DONATE AND HELP HERE! ALL DONATIONS GO TO HELP OU ATHLETES AND RECRUITING)
43:00 – MORE David Hicks talk… and how many 2023 visitors this will be in the Sooners class come NSD. Odds were set at 3.5. Did Brandon and Parker put the over or under? Same with 2024 with the odds set at five for the 2024 NSD? Five-star DL David Stone, four-star RB Stacy Gage, and more in town this weekend. And they name the ones they are predicting. Sooners fans will likely enjoy this one…
51:00 – Five-star DL David Stone update and the notion that C4 is actively sending people to Michigan State… Hint: They aren’t. That’s who is offerring the kids. What about four-star DL XaDavien Sims liking MSU so much. Can OU and Todd Bates win out come December 2023? Same with Stone?
