4-Star LB Clayton Smith | Trending
– Super K

As you may know by now, 2021 4-star LB, Clayton Smith (Texas High) released his top six, this past weekend…

It included LSU, OU, Kentucky, Florida State, Oregon and Texas.

I spoke with a source regarding this recruitment and was told to expect Clayton to likely narrow things down to three which would most likely include LSU, OU and Texas.

While I know most people have Clayton trending towards Texas, our source seems to believe this one has actually shifted in OU’s favor.

I haven’t spoken to Clayton over the phone in a bit so I can really give you my personal read but we have at least one source who believes the Sooners have taken the lead, currently.

Talking Point | Vegas Odds to Win Big12 Released
– CJ Vogel

The Las Vegas SuperBook has released its odds for the 2020 Big 12 Conference Winner.

  • Oklahoma +120
  • Texas +150
  • Oklahoma State +700
  • Iowa State +1400
  • Baylor, TCU +2500
  • Kansas State, Texas Tech, WVU +8000
  • Kansas +50000

Clearly, oddsmakers are giving the Longhorns some heavy credit this season, as they should. The stars are aligning perfectly for a run at the conference championship game with Sam Ehlinger entering his senior year, a defense returning a great percentage of its production and the biggest threat in the conference starting a quarterback who has yet to start a game.

However, that doesn’t stop the Sooners from being touted as the favorite. Spencer Rattler is slated to start for Oklahoma and the magical Lincoln Riley offense. It will also be year number two for the ‘Speed D’ that new defensive coordinator Alex Grinch unveiled last season which should be of benefit to Oklahoma.

Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace returning to Stillwater only nets the Cowboys a 7-t0-1 edge on the books.

It should be a fun season (if it is played out) and one that the Longhorns should look to capitalize on come the fall.

Update | 2021 RB Jonathon Brooks
– Charlie S

This weekend, 2021 running back Jonathon Brooks (6’0″ 195) out of Halletsville, TX announced he will be making his commitment on May 15th.

Texas offered Brooks last November and they have been steady in their recruitment of him.

We believe the Longhorns will be the call in this one.
