Sooner Intel: It's a 2019 weekend for OU

Intel returns with an update on a big 2019 weekend coming up for OU.

Oklahoma spent a lot of time last weekend re-connecting with some major 2018 targets as the Sooners continue to build on #ST2K18.

The spring game is done, but recruiting never stops. The Sooners have one last chance for a showcase event this weekend with the final scrimmage, and as of now, it has a strong 2019 flavor.

To go one step further, it has an Allen (Texas) High flavor. Two of the Eagles’ top prospects for the class are heading to Norman. One who has seen campus multiple times in recent months and one who could be OU’s next offer at quarterback.

Wide receiver Theo Wease, already a four-star prospect, visited OU last weekend for the spring game and said he’s coming back once again.

Wease has established himself as the leader of the #NewWave19, the hashtag for OU’s 2019 class and seems to have the respect of his peers to go with his production on the field.

Wease coming along for the ride certainly can’t hurt OU’s chances with Allen quarterback Grant Tisdale, a four-star prospect in his own right.

The Sooners have only made two offers at quarterback for the 2019 class. One, seems like it won’t be a factor at all with Roschon Johnson appearing like a favorite for Texas.

The other is a little different. Phoenix Pinnacle’s Spencer Rattler was offered by the Sooners nearly 12 months ago and has been someone offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley has attempted to build a nice relationship as possible to this juncture.

Rattler hasn’t made any noteworthy comments on his recruitment but multiple sources have said OU is near the top if not the top of the list heading into spring.

That could be altered with Tisdale coming to campus. OU certainly wouldn’t be hurting if it had an Allen connection of Tisdale and Wease. Tisdale has expressed how fired up he is for the trip to Norman so it will be interesting to see if an offer follows or if more evaluation is needed during the spring.

Another prospect coming to town is Crandall (Texas) High offensive lineman Branson Bragg. He earned his initial offer Thursday from Oklahoma State but has received a lot of interest from the Sooners and offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh.

A potential target for Tisdale down the road could be Collinsville (Okla.) High tight end Grayson Boomer. The four-star prospect is making his first trip to OU since earning the offer from the Sooners last weekend.

Boomer said he admires Tisdale’s game and believes he is one of the best quarterbacks for the 2019 class.

OU hasn’t landed a commitment from the spring game visitors just yet, but the Sooners continue to be in the conversation for top prospects and continue to have the top recruits on campus.

When you factor in the new facilities and the positive vibe going around the program right now, there’s not much more you can ask right now for the Sooners.
