Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. It’s judgement day for Ryan Broyles. The former Oklahoma receiver holds his Pro Day today at 10 a.m. CT and is expected to run the 40-yard dash and run routes for NFL scouts. Broyles was slated to be a second or third round pick before the injury and is looking to prove to NFL teams that he is ready to make an immediate impact on Sundays. It has been a quick recovery after his ACL injury last November and it’s hard to believe Broyles won’t have success in the NFL; he’s the type of guy who make the foundation which championships are built upon.
2. Unless something unexpected happens, it appears Ryan Spangler will leave Gonzaga to transfer to OU. Orginally from Bridge Creek, Okla., Spangler is a big body with excellent athleticism and offensive skills. If he does end up in Norman he should become an impact player as soon as he becomes eligible in 2013. Spangler, who was not offered by Jeff Capel’s Sooner program before Lon Kruger took over, is set to visit OU this weekend.
3. The Sooners signed guard Isaiah Cousins on Wednesday. OU has signed three 6-foot-4 guards since Kruger took over, a sign the Sooners head coach wants size and versatility in his backcourt. The overriding theme with Cousins, Buddy Hield and Je'lon Hornbeak is their versatility, willingness to pass and willingness to defend. Kruger recruits basketball players not just scorers or passers or rebounders, he wants guys who strive to be complete basketball players and that’s become apparent with his first recruiting class.
