Lincoln Riley already has some eyes for us.

Happy Monday, friends and fans!

As soon as the recruiting dead period came to an end with the start of March, the Oklahoma Sooners hosted a number of major recruiting targets over the weekend. With so much buzz back in the building and around the program, it only seems right that Lincoln Riley picked up another silent commitment along the way.

Interestingly enough, exactly one minute after Riley tweeted out those eyes on Sunday evening, 2021 four-star CB Latrell McCutchin out of Austin, Texas announced his decommitment from Alabama.

Considering McCutchin was one of the visitors OU hosted this weekend, is it all just a coincidence? Stay tuned.

Now onto this week’s Monday edition of Hot Links! Oklahoma downs LSU behind an historic no-no, the Sooners prepare for Senior Night against the Longhorns, Mike Trout is very mean to this one golf ball and more!

OU Links

  • Following Oklahoma’s tremendous weekend on the diamond, the Sooners have moved up to No. 11 in Baseball America’s top 25 rankings.
  • Tuesday night will be Senior Night for Oklahoma forward Kristian Doolittle. It’s been a career full of highs and lows, and now the Edmond native would want nothing more than to end his final game in Norman with a win over his school’s biggest rival — Texas. John Rohde has more on SoonerSports.
  • Former Sooners QB Landry Jones suffered an alarming knee injury late in the game between his Dallas Renegades and the Houston Roughnecks on Sunday. He’ll continue to be evaluated, but it appears that there’s a chance this injury could sideline him for the remainder of the XFL season.

Around the Sports World

  • Los Angeles Angels super star Mike Trout must hate everything spherical shaped because he absolutely crushes their souls with every swing. Seriously though, he’s like a real life Happy Gilmore minus the putrid short game, probably.
