Tenpenny staying in touch with OU

NORMAN, Okla. -- When running back Altee Tenpenny (North Little Rock, Ark./North Little Rock) listed his college favorites two weeks ago, most expected a full slate of Southeastern Conference schools.

Tenpenny has said he loves the quality of play in the SEC and four of his top six are from the conference: Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss. He didn't grow up an Arkansas fan, but the Razorbacks have been the team in most consistent pursuit for the junior.

So when he listed Oklahoma as one of his top schools, some eyebrows were raised. Could OU steal a top running back from SEC country?
