At an announcement ceremony this afternoon, Bremen H.S. running back David Smith confirmed that he will be joining the Oklahoma Soonersclass of 2012. Smith had a final two of OU and West Virginia and called his decision today "the opportunity of a lifetime." Smith is a kid who repeatedly professed his admiration for Oklahoma and stated how excited he was to get that scholarship offer from the Sooners. So given his comments, this news doesn't necessarily come as a surprise but that doesn't make it any less exciting for the young man or Sooner Nation.
Smith becomes the Sooners 19th verbal commitment for 2012 and chose Oklahoma after taking his final official visit to Norman just this past weekend.
Smith figures to be a perfect compliment to the running backs currently on campus as he is a bigger, more powerful back paired with the likes of current Sooners Roy Finch and Brennan Clayamong others. The Sooners will again have no shortage of options at the RB spot in 2012 with the previously mentioned Clay & Finch as well as Dominique Whaleycoming back from a broken ankle, redshirt freshman Danzel Williams, and Smith's now fellow classmates Alex Ross and Daniel Brooks.
Welcome to Sooner Nation David!
