Five to watch for OU offers this weekend

Big week for OU on the recruiting trail means we could be seeing some offers going out.

Big-time visitors weekend for Oklahoma means there could be a lot of action for the Sooners on the trail.

Fans are hoping that means some commits following an emphatic win against Ohio State. Maybe not commits, but there are definitely some unofficial visitors who could be knocking on the door of an offer.

Sooners Illustrated examines five legitimate offer targets by OU this weekend.

Five who could get offered

Dallas Kimball OLB Devodrick Johnson

If not now, then when? Johnson is the younger brother of OU redshirt freshman cornerback Antoine Stephens and will be making his first trip to OU since the spring game. Ranked in the Scout 300 and a former Texas A&M commit, things appeared to be trending toward Texas although they’ve noticeably cooled off. The Aggies are once again back in the fold, but maybe if OU were to make the leap, things could change in a hurry.

2018 Yoakum (Texas) High S Jordan Moore

Jordan’s twin brother, Joshua, is also coming along. OU offered Joshua Moore back in the spring, but the offer to Jordan hasn't been doled out just yet. The brothers have been pretty consistent in saying their recruitments are separate, no guarantee of a package deal. But Jordan has also already announced a Dec. 24 commitment date so OU would have to make up major ground in a major way. Both of the brothers are solidly ranked in the Scout 300.

2018 Midwest City (Okla.) DE/OLB Jalen Redmond

We’ll head in-state for the final three choices, beginning with Redmond. Things are trending up after a great visit to Norman in the summer for the #ChampUBBQ where Redmond got familiar with Mike Stoops. He had eight tackles and a sack in his first game of the junior season but has had to deal with family issues the last couple of weeks. Stoops could be at Redmond’s game Friday, and the initial plan is for Redmond to arrive much earlier than the 6:30 p.m. CST kick Saturday evening. Could be a sign?

2018 Tulsa (Okla.) Union WR C.J. Moore

Had considered this one done when OU didn’t invite Moore to its elite camp or the #ChampUBBQ, but the interest has flared back up. Perhaps the offer from Ohio State last week caught the eye of the OU coaches. Moore will be one of three 2018 Union recruits in attendance to go with defensive back offer Patrick Fields and fellow receiver Adrian Wilson. Tre Brown will also be on his official visit. Moore visited Norman twice in the winter and spring. Maybe early junior film has made OU take a second look.

2018 OKC McGuinness OT Owen Condon

Condon could absolutely just be a victim of circumstance. He might have simply been born in the wrong year. OU has one commit in five-star tackle Brey Walker. The Sooners will also see the return of Justin (Texas) Northwest offensive tackle Darrell Simpson this weekend, who is the No. 1 OT in Texas. But offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh was back at McGuinness last week to watch Condon play. That’s never a bad sign. Again, maybe junior film is telling a different story.
