What recruits say about OU-Texas in the SEC


The information Wednesday that Texas and Oklahoma officers have reached out to the SEC to affix that convention, had commits to each of these colleges stuffed with feelings and ideas.

For these commits, taking part in in the SEC is the larger draw. It simply means extra, as the energy convention likes to say.

“I don’t care what division we play in because I feel that we are the best program in the country and we have the coaching staff that knows what it takes to win no matter who we go against,” Texas commit Anthony Jones stated. “So it doesn’t matter who we play, I do know we’ll be superb and play how the coaches train us to play.”

Others agreed.

“I love the competition in the SEC so I’m all for it,” Oklahoma commit Demetrius Hunter stated.

“I know the SEC is the best conference and I’m all for it,” Texas pledge Armani Winfield stated.

Other commits had been anticipating the day – at any time when this could come down and dramatically change the school soccer panorama – to show the Sooners and Longhorns can play with the SEC powers.

“It’s a big jump but we’re ready,” Texas pledge Trevell Johnson stated. “Coach (Steve Sarkisian) and his staff know what they’re doing and for the time that I’ve been around the players you can tell they’re fully bought-in and believe what they’re trying to instill in that program.”

Texas offensive line commit Conner Robertson stated he was uncertain Texas and Oklahoma would depart the Big 12.

Two Sooners’ pledges had been particularly anticipating the transfer.

“That gets me more pumped because that’s better competition and we can show that we can compete in any conference,” Oklahoma WR pledge Robert Spears-Jenning stated.
