"I would have left had Coach Norvell left," OU commit Durron Neal said. "He was a real key factor in why I chose OU. It feels tremendous to know he is not going anywhere."
"I didn’t want to think about it, but I kept thinking about it the rest of the day until he called. Then I felt comfortable again. No nerves."
"Coach Norvell has always just talked real with me. He gets right to the point," Neal said. "He’s never been about being buddy-buddy. We talk about other things than football."
I know the news today about De'Vante Harris sucks, but as this quote from one of OU's most talented verbal commitments clearly shows it could have been even worse. Fortunately Norvell isn't going anywhere and now Neal isn't either.
