Brandon Beaver postpones visit to OU

Brandon Beaver (Compton, Calif./Dominguez) was set to visit Oklahoma this weekend but some miscommunication with the Sooner coaching staff has the corner now staying home.

Beaver has taken official visits to Utah, Washington and Nebraska. He was scheduled to visit OU this week and has a final visit set up with Arizona next weekend.

“Coach [Brent] Venables was the coach recruiting me and he’s no longer at Oklahoma,” Beaver said. “Once he left, I lost all communication with them so I never got a flight booked or an itinerary sent to me. I had no idea he was leaving, at least give me a heads up or something.

“Mike Stoops called me last night though so I talked to him and I’m going to try and set up a mid-week visit. I have Arizona set up for next week (Jan. 27) so I can’t visit then. I definitely want to check out Oklahoma, they’re one of my top schools so hopefully we can set something up. I’m not looking forward to missing school but sometimes you do what you have to do.”

Beaver said he plans to announce his choice on Signing Day and the Huskies are the team to beat at the moment.
