Joe Powell, a 6-foot-0, 175-pound athlete from Skyline High in Dallas, Texas was ecstatic to report that he had been offered by and subsequently made a commitment to play for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Sooners Illustrated caught up with Powell who confirmed that it was indeed true that he had made commitment to play for OU.
"Yeah baby," Powell beamed. "I am a Sooner!"
It is hard to gain a full appreciation for how happy he was to get the offer and make a commitment, but he was yelling it in a packed basketball arena.
We will have much more on Powell later after he gets to a place where he can talk.
