Good afternoon, Sooner Nation!

Cameron Rising, a commit from the 2018 recruiting class, got some serious hype from ESPN’s Jeremy Crabree today, who called Rising the ‘recruit to watch’ from that class. He’s not the most out-and-out talented player from the class, but ESPN attributes some of OU’s recent recruiting success to the commitment of the pro-style quarterback.

Though it’s hard for me to ascribe a lot of hype to a player who hasn’t even stepped foot on campus yet, a quick glance at the 6’2” QB’s highlight reel confirms the hoopla: Rising — aptly named, by the way — is the real deal. Even though he’s listed as a pro-style QB, Rising is adept at throwing on the run, and he’s got a cannon of a right arm.

Without further ado, today’s edition of Hot Links:
