Tales From The Road: Oklahoma

Every Wednesday the SoonerNation staff will take a quick hit look at some of the top recruits and storylines facing Oklahoma recruiting for the week.


This week’s targets: Louisiana isn’t usually a typical recruiting area of interest for Oklahoma. But with 11 prospects in the ESPN 150 from the state, OU coaches are migrating there. One recruit in particular stands out, as defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery is doing everything he can to secure the commitment of ESPN 150 defensive tackle Garrald McDowell (Covington, La./Covington). OU wasn’t there in the beginning for McDowell, ranked No. 105 in the ESPN 150, but Montgomery is making sure the Sooners will be there until the end. With OU in desperate need for defensive tackle help, McDowell would be exactly what OU is looking for.
