Could History Repeat Itself?

It was a year ago to the day that Xavier Lawson-Kennedy sat in front of a number of caps and picked up the white Oklahoma State hat signaling the Fox Sports Southwest production crew to play the Oklahoma State fight song and roll the OSU video highlights. Cowboy fans across the Southwest celebrated wildly including a smile of satisfaction from OSU head coach Les Miles, who was watching at home.

Now, get ready for round two as Dallas (Lake Highlands) All American defensive tackle Franklin Okam will announce his choice on Fox Sports Southwest 10 p.m. Sports Report on Tuesday night. Okam will play his basketbal game for the Wildcats against Allen and then head to the Fox studios to make the announcement live on the broadcast.

This time Texas fans seem convinced it will be "Texas Fight" that will be played following Okam's announcement. Oklahoma State hosted Okam for a midweek visit last week before he finished his official visits at Stanford this past weekend. You have to wonder if Lawson-Kennedy didn't plant the seed for a Fox Sports Southwest platform when he met Okam on his visit to Stillwater last week.

We'll all tune in and see what Okam has to say on Tuesday. It will either be OSU, Texas, Stanford or the other two schools that Okam visited in Oklahoma and Florida.
