There has been talk for several days that Oklahoma had been eliminated from consideration for the 2012 commitment of highly regarded Arizona athlete Davonte Neal. For whatever reason, the general consensus towards the initial reports was one of slight hesitation as OU fans held out hope that Neal's relationship with new OU LB coach Tim Kish could have kept them in the game.
However, very soon to be guest of the CCM podcast Bob Przybylo has now confirmed ($) the initial reports after exchanging text messages with Neal's father (Luke). As the earlier reports had stated, evidently OU just entered the picture a little too late.
And with that, the book can now be officially closed on OU's 2012 recruiting class.
