Browne visiting Oklahoma

Not everybody was thrilled with the outcome of Oklahoma’s second junior day. The Sooners earned one commitment in running back Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas/Ranch) and gave out just one offer in defensive tackle Justin Manning (Dallas/Kimball).

This weekend, however, is shaping up to be an interesting one for OU as well. It starts with a biggie as potential five-star quarterback Max Browne (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) will arrive in Norman on Thursday night and stay until Sunday.

Browne, 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, is regarded by many as the top quarterback in the 2013 class and was offered by OU last month.
