Oklahoma got some expected news during Saturday's Scout.com U.S. Army All-American game in San Antonio when Las Vegas linebacker Ryan Reynolds officially committed to Oklahoma during the third quarter of NBC's telecast.
"The college I chose was ..." said Reynolds as he reached into a black Russell Athletic bag to pull out the hat of the school he was choosing. "...The University of Oklahoma."
Reynolds, a five-star linebacker according to Scout.com who picked the Sooners over UCLA and Wisconsin, was named the receipient of the first-ever "Myoplex Speed & Strength Athlete of the Year" on Friday night during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl banquet.
The award goes to the "nation's strongest, fastest and most dedicated prep football player which lives up to all of the ideals set forth by Walter Payton."
