NORMAN, Okla. -- The sky is not falling for Oklahoma recruiting. But boy did it feel that way for fans three weeks ago. In a puzzling move, the Sooners postponed their original Jan. 12 junior day and moved it to Feb. 2.
Now less than 48 hours away from the event, OU didn't suffer near the backlash as some fans were expecting.
OU hosted eight 2013 official visitors on the weekend of Jan. 11. The rationale was there was no way the OU coaches could devote enough time to eight visitors and to all the top juniors making their way to campus.
