Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. Lon Kruger earned a commitment from guard Isaiah Cousins, a 2012 prospect, on Wednesday. Since lack of depth was a primary reason for the Sooners' struggles this season, gathering as many talented players as possible has been the goal for Oklahoma’s first-year coach. Cousins brings good size at 6-foot-4 and 186 pounds and will join signees Je'lon Hornbeak and Buddy Hield in the battle for minutes in OU’s backcourt. Don’t expect a huge immediate impact from Cousins, a two-star prospect, but he could give Kruger another option in the backcourt next season.
2. The accolades for Trey Metoyer continue to roll in. Coach Bob Stoops called the freshman receiver “special” during a radio interview on Wednesday matching up with the consistent praise Metoyer has received from teammates and coaches since stepping on campus in January. At this point it’s safe to say Metoyer will be a contributor to the Oklahoma offensive attack this fall.
3. The Sooners won the first Bedlam softball matchup of the season on Wednesday night, blanking Oklahoma State 4-0 at ASA Stadium in Oklahoma City. OU, ranked No. 7 nationally, scored runs in each of the first three innings then used a solo home run from Javen Henson in the bottom of the sixth to secure the win. OU is 27-4 this season and will host Kansas this weekend.
