Keith Nichol is Going to be a Sooner

New, 2 comments

The Sooners won the Big 12 South title on Saturday then Bob Stoops and Josh Heupel jumped on an airplane to go visit four start quarterback recruit Keith Nichol who in turn scheduled an impromptu visit to Norman mid-week in which he committed to the Sooners.

Nichol was committed to Michigan State but decided to change his mind after the Spartans fired John L. Smith. He is a duel threat quarterback listed at 6-2, 195 lbs and runs a 4.68 - 40.  

Rumor has is that Stoops promised Nichol that they would not recruit any other quarterbacks if he would commit which if true leaves Nichol, Sam Bradford or Joey Halzle as the options for quarterback next season.

Nichol will graduate in December and come to OU in January putting him here for spring practice.
