    2023 Prospect Cole Adams/Owasso High School

    Just read today where he chose the Tide over OU. Kid looks like a burner when he's in open space but I am a bit surprised he ultimately chose to leave the state. Was looking to see if anyone here can give some more insight.

          Can’t be too surprising with what happened with Josh Jacobs and all that Bama has done lately. Until proven otherwise, Venables is a guy who says all the right things. That’s not going to win every recruiting battle— even for those in your own back yard.

            Well, he asked, was on, then disappeared.

            Wasn’t serious or trolling. Question was answered, ten fold.

              Especially when he doesn't start recruiting those players until 2 months AFTER Bama started...

                It’s been said, and done.

                It’s not hard, pod.

                  Brent's had a lot of shit to do since arriving in Norman. Recruiting Cole Adams wasn't at the top of his priority list.

                        Guess nothing, as usual.

                        It is what it it is and wouldn’t blame anyone outside the SEC for challenging the SEC(how Fukn stupid would the be)?!?!

                        anyway, y’all keep playing along and I and many will keep throwing baits and hooking dumbdicks(that’s y’all) and we can even get in to the season…. And Fukn prove it. Like it, bitch like a bitch, or not…

                              If Brent offered late, Cole Adams wasn't first priority. Perhaps through earlier conversations they sensed he wasn't coming to Norman. We've had multiple in state kids leave and it's never destroyed the program.

                                  Yeah when Stoops arrived to Norman, the first thing he did was come to Tulsa and work to block all the talent in the area from leaving for Kansas State and Arkansas. That led to us getting Rocky Calmus, among others. Hopefully Brent has prioritized correctly. Time will tell...

                                    Yeah the nineties were glorious with the top in state talent going to Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas State, etc.

                                      Good gawd, you reaching for some drama.

                                      I've not paid attention to recruiting since 1999.

                                      But Teddy Lehman says Adams was a 3* until Saban offered and he then got the perfunctory Bama Star and became a 4*. He thinks Saban offered him to bait Venables into an offer.

                                      And its not a position of need in the 23 recruiting class.

                                      Just my opinion, but there's a lot of good WR's out there. And the 5 stars Riley brought here have not really impressed me. Just another guy to catch passes.

                                      What Stoops taught me is its far far more important about what you do with them once ya get em.

                                      Now, if I'm smokin a brisket, I'd rather start with prime grade rather than choice. But in the end, what's gonna make the biggest difference is how I smoke the brisket.

                                          Couple of predictions for Pettaway recently as Adams trended and committed. You only need so many slot guys. This wouldn’t be a thread if the kid wasn’t from Oklahoma. I don’t know why Tulsa is the land of butthurt prospects every year now, but we’ve been over this a dozen times: if you offer in-state, you have to know he’s an immediate take. Alabama can sling early offers all over Tulsa and if they get into a numbers problem, they won’t hesitate to grayshirt them, something OU doesn’t do even outside the state.

                                            BV only has x number of scholarships available. Is Cole Adams better in his position than what we have now or what has already committed? Do we have a greater need at other positions? If we can offer a 3* wr or a 3* DL, for example, which do we need more? Would we even be talking about this if the tulsa world had not written a few articles about him?

                                                And my post was only further commentary. Meaning, Bama poster was surprised the kid chose Bama over OU. I, on the other hand, am not.

                                                I’d be surprised if Auburn, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Iowa or Oregon swooped him up. The gold standard of the modern day game in Tuscaloosa? Yeah… that’s about as shocking as Adrian Peterson choosing Oklahoma over Texas.

Having an OU staff who is exceptionally good at identifying which players can be developed into quality players for OU has always been a needed skill for the very best OU football teams.

                                                  When it means more players are more likely to sacrifice and step up and provide leadership.
                                                  This indicates that recruiting Oklahoma and locking it down will be a priority for Brent Venables

                                                          So you’re saying Bob recruited and signed Calmus? Is that what you’re saying?

                                                              I always look forward to the yearly Tulsa recruit whose going to throw a fit then not pick OU anyways. It’s fun.

                                                                BV only has x number of scholarships available. Is Cole Adams better in his position than what we have now or what has already committed? Do we have a greater need at other positions? If we can offer a 3* wr or a 3* DL, for example, which do we need more? Would we even be talking about this if the tulsa world had not written a few articles about him?
                                                                Dline and CB. Build a defense and that's where it starts. I'm worn slick watching shitty defense.

                                                                  Obviously! Never mind the fact that he, Sly Likes Big Hairy Cockan, Holleyman, DMac, Josh Norman, Woolfolk, Romero, Trent Smith, & Roy Williams were all there as freshmen in ‘98, by golly, they came because of Bob. Of course, grad’s such a huge OU fan that I’m sure he already knew that.

He's been around HS football as a player, coach, parent for more than 40 years. Blankenship played a role I would expect, but not anywhere near the deciding factor.

I’m just surprised that he left the state, given the excitement around your program right now with the coaching change. I figured that Brent would lock down the Tulsa area schools.
