If there’s one commitment Oklahoma fans feel like they don’t have a good read on, it’s Houston Spring Dekaney wide receiver Adrian Hardy.
Hardy, still a two-star Scout prospect, is still the peculiar one of the group. He had an offer heading into OU’s second junior day, enjoyed his visit and committed days later.
Nobody had heard of him before the event. Not too many schools seem to have heard of him since. He picked up an offer from Texas A&M during the spring but nothing really materialized there. It’s no doubt much closer to home than Norman.
Hardy didn’t make any trips whatsoever during his senior season. No unofficial visits, nothing. With his senior year in the books, he returned to Norman last weekend for his official visit.
“I felt more wanted,” said Hardy about the biggest difference between official visit and junior day trip. “I had to make sure that I was going to be a Sooner. I definitely felt at home and had all of my questions answered.”
It was an up-and-down season for Hardy, who spent some time at quarterback, some time at receiver and even others at running back.
With the Sooners, it’s clear. He’s a wide receiver, and John Humphrey was his host for the weekend. Nothing stood out too much to Hardy, except to say Humphrey is definitely enjoying his first year in Norman.
It was a monster recruiting weekend for the Sooners, which allowed Hardy to get to know some of the commitments as well as some of the top targets still on the board.
“I enjoyed it a lot,” Hardy said. “I didn’t really know some of them but got to know them after the game. I really hit it off with Dre (Massey).”
The OU receiver spot seems to be in constant flux in terms of the numbers for the class. At one point it looked like two, not it looks like OU could take four.
It does, though, feel like Hardy is now definitely a part of that class. OU wants him, and he wants to be a Sooner.
“I’m not looking at any more schools whatsoever,” Hardy said. “I’m 100 percent Boomer Sooner.”
