"Well, I started talking to Coach (Joe) Wickline about two and a half weeks ago and he invited me to come for the spring game," said Rhodes on Sunday. "We pulled in and I got to talk personally with Coach Wickline, and then I got to meet with Coach (Mike) Gundy in his office, and I really like him. They told me I had a scholarship offer."
Rhodes, who has a 320-pound bench press max and a 450-pound squat max and is a post player for Blue Valley in basketball, was making his first trip to Stillwater.
"I loved it," he said. "It was exciting to see that many people at a spring football game. It was like the whole town just headed over to see the game. It reminded me of Lawrence a little, but with better football. Outside there was a lot of grilling and people around. It was exciting."
Rhodes said that was likely his last visit this spring and that he thought he would make his decision soon.
