There were many guesses as to who would commit at Oklahoma’s first junior day Feb. 2. Few even had safety Vontre McQuinnie (Lancaster, Texas/Lancaster) as one of the possible choices.
But riding the Lancaster wave, McQuinnie committed to the Sooners. Earlier in that day, cornerback Dakota Austin, also from Lancaster High, committed to OU and signed with the Sooners four days later.
OU was McQuinnie’s first offer, and instead of playing the recruiting game, he said he felt 100-percent content with his decision and was ready to end the madness before it started. He is OU’s only commitment on defense.
