This must be getting really old for Mizzou fans huh?  Once again OU goes into the state of Missouri steals one of the state's top players in WR Durron Neal.  The DeSmet product and St. Louis native was in Norman for a recruiting visit and has reportedly given his verbal commitment to Coach Norvell and the Sooners. 

It's a fairly unexpected development as Missouri had long been considered the favorite to land the talented wide receiver.  However, once again, the allure of winning championships (not just a single game) was too great to pass up. 

This news comes while the nation's #1 pro style QB prospect, Gunner Kiel, is also visiting Norman shortly after OU hosted the #1 overall player in WR Dorial Green-Beckham.  Could Neal's commitment be the first domino to fall in a windfall of five star 2012 recruits?  We'll have to wait and see, but this could very well be the first of several big recruiting developments.

Anyway, for now enjoy the highlighs and as always welcome to Sooner Nation Durron!!!
