Happy Thursday, friends and fans!

The 2020 Under Armour All-America Game is set to kick off tonight at 5 p.m. CT on ESPN2, and the Oklahoma Sooners will be well-represented with five signees/commits with the potential to add more to an already strong recruiting class. Seen below are three of OU’s offensive line signees — Nate Anderson, Anton Harrison and Andrew Raym.

Record-setting wide receiver signee Marvin Mims will also be present, as will verbally committed DE Reggie Grimes.

One of the traditions established in these high school All-America games is allowing the recruits to announce on television, and Oklahoma folks need to keep their eyes peeled tonight for four-star dual-threat QB Chandler Morris out of Dallas. He plans to make the announcement just before the UAAA game kicks off, so tune in early.

Now for today’s Hot Links! Mock drafts have Oklahoma players all over them, Lincoln Riley conspiracy theories are for nerds, Tylan Wallace is staying at OSU for one last ride and more!

OU Links

  • Colin Cowherd claims that the Big 12 is facing a dilemma because the style that typically succeeds in conference play is what also gets them beat against the top teams from other conferences. Because of this, he thinks Lincoln Riley sees the writing on the wall and therefore will have interest in the Dallas Cowboys should Jerry Jones come knocking. I don’t think we even need to delve into how flawed his logic is on this one.

Around the Sports World

  • Oklahoma State Cowboys WR Tylan Wallace confirmed on Wednesday that he has decided to return to Stillwater for his senior season rather than declare for the 2020 NFL Draft. The former Biletnikoff Award finalist suffered an ACL injury in late October that caused him to miss the remainder of the season, but he has a promising timetable for a return this fall.
  • On Monday, Jan. 6, Alabama Crimson Tide QB Tua Tagovailoa plans to announce his ultimate decision on whether he’ll return to Tuscaloosa or enter the NFL Draft. The former Heisman runner-up has had a growing history with lower-body injuries, including most recently a season-ending hip dislocation.
  • The Cleveland Browns are reportedly interested in interviewing former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for their own vacancy. Personally, I could see this one happening.
  • Former NBA Commissioner David Stern passed away on Wednesday at the age of 77. It’s a loss that has shaken the sports world to its core, as Stern had a huge impact on basketball — including the fact that he played a huge role in turning it into a truly international game.
