Canes still recruiting OU commit

This talented offensive line prospect is committed to Oklahoma but that hasn't stopped the Hurricanes from recruiting him. Read on to see everything he's saying.

Ty Darlington has family ties to Oklahoma. His mom was a cheerleader there and he still has family in the area. That's a big reason why he committed to the Sooners early in the recruiting process. He is still being recruited by one other program, though.

"Miami's coaches still call me once in awhile," he said. "Coach Kehoe is down there and they're trying to build the program back up. I'm still committed to Oklahoma though."

Darlington, 6-foot-3 and 275 pounds, talked more about his pledge.

"I think Oklahoma had a good year but they obviously had higher hopes and wanted a national championship. So I know they're disappointed and as a player I know their players are upset about it. But they had some key injuries that hurt them. I'm excited to get there though. Their coaches have came to my school and then went to my house to meet my mom. I leave for my official to Oklahoma tomorrow."

Darlington, who claims a 5.0 GPA and a 33 ACT score, is one of the top offensive line prospects in the state of Florida. He talked about his senior season at Apopka.

"Our season didn't end up very well. We lost in the first round. We thought we'd have a better chance at making a run for state. Individually it was definitely the best I've played by far in high school. I played pretty well, had a few minor injuries, but I feel like I played the best I could."

Stay with, as we'll follow up with Darlington's official visit to Norman sometime next week.
