Oklahoma safety commit Patrick Fields is a guy who’s made it very clear how involved he will be in recruiting other prospects. On Thursday night, the Tulsa Union product tweeted something that should probably excite you.
I feel a couple booms coming this weekend Soonernation stay tuned— Patrick Fields (@PatrickFields24) March 24, 2017
T.J. Pledger, the nation’s No. 2 all-purpose back, has had Oklahoma at the top of his list for months now, and a commitment has seemed imminent for about as long. He was in Norman for an unofficial visit back in December for Bedlam, and he’s making a return trip this weekend.
Could this weekend’s visit seal the deal? If I were a betting man (which I am), I’d say yes. It may not necessarily happen while he’s in town, but it will likely happen sooner rather than later. Although he recently released a list of his top schools — which included Clemson, Georgia, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee and UCLA — the Sooners are definitely sitting pretty.
Tulsa Union defensive end Jordan Kelley is down to OU, Oklahoma State and TCU, and his announcement will come on Sunday.
The three-star prospect received an OU offer at last month’s Junior Day, and a commitment has seemed like a certainty ever since. The tweet from Fields (who is Kelley’s high school teammate) makes things look even better.
Things have been a little bit quiet on the recruiting front for the past few weeks, but it appears that the silence is about to end!
