Sometimes it takes a second time to get the feelings you once had.
That could have been the case with League City (Tex.) Clear Falls wide receiver John Humphrey, as it pertains to his football recruitment.
Early in the process, Humphrey raved about Oklahoma, and it appeared that the Sooners were in a good place with the talented receiver. But just after the Nike Football Training Camp in Houston, he committed to Baylor as a cornerback.
And while commitments are no-binding for both side and merely a verbal agreement, Humphrey was a commitment for the program for what seemed to be a short amount of time. A few weeks, Humphrey told everyone one of his followers that Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Texas, Ole Miss and Baylor were his favorites.
Then Tuesday of this past week, the tweet read: My two #BoomerSooner #FightingIrish
At that time the understanding was that the 6-foot, 165-pound Humphrey would visit make official visits to the Oklahoma against Tennessee and the Notre Dame vs. Michigan, which were back-to-back weeks with the Sooners as the final.
But something came up this week which allowed Humphrey to be able to make it back to Norman, Okla. And the result was a commitment.
“The newest OU commit,” Humphrey informed Scout.com.
Known for his speed and quickness, according to Sooners Illustrated, Humphrey can be used on either side of the ball and be effective. That statement has some accuracy seeing that he could excel on either side for Oklahoma.
Now that he has had the chance to take in the Sooner experience, he feels as though this decision is the right one.
“When I arrived at the Oklahoma campus, I feel like I belonged there and a part of something special,” Humphrey said. “I feel 100 percent confident in my decision.”
With this behind him, Humphrey said that all focus can be on the upcoming season at Clear Falls. Right now, most predictions have the team falling just outside of the playoffs, which certainly has lit the flame in a playmaker like Humphrey.
