Sooners flip ex-Northwestern commit

The switch was anticipated, and early Sunday evening, it was confirmed. Jordan Thomas (Klein, Texas/Klein Collins) is headed to Norman.

Thomas, a high three-star athlete expected to play safety at the next level, flipped his commitment from Northwestern to Oklahoma after an official visit to Norman. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete, who confirmed the pledge via text message, became the Sooners’ 22nd commitment of the 2014 recruiting class.
