    OUinsider staff travels to see top 2022, 2023 targets, OU hoops NCAA tourney, Reaves/Manek return? Nebraska game, commit predictions & more...

    OUinsider staffers Brandon Drumm, Collin Kennedy, and Parker Thune meet for the first time in two weeks to podcast after travels all over the region.
    Drumm and Thune went by Texarkana (TX) to see Texas High talent and also to see big-time 2022 edge rusher and former high school teammate Clayton Smith (current OU freshman edge rusher) Derrick Brown. Thune talks about Brown and where OU stands. Drumm had a full write-up on Brown on OUinsider VIP a few weeks ago.
    Drumm and Thune also spent a few days in New Orleans, where they saw several Sooners targets, including five-star DB Jacoby Mathews. On the way back to OKC, the duo stopped by to see Monroe (LA) defensive back Lorenzell Dubose and elite 2023 Longview (TX) wide receiver Jalen Hale.
    They breakdown that trip while Collin Kennedy breaks down several Houston area targets that he saw at his offensive line and defensive line camp Kennedy put together over this past weekend. Kennedy also touches on several other recruiting topics, including the Under Armor All American Camp in Dallas. That camp was attended by the most talent Drumm and Kennedy had ever seen in one camp setting. With that came tons of Oklahoma targets and commits like four-star OU wideout commit Talyn Shettron, four-star LB target Ish Harris, big-time OKPreps defensive lineman Chris McClellan, linebacker Justin Medlock, linebacker Kip Lewis, DB Jarred Kerr, five-star OL Devon Campbell and many more that they talk about on the OUinsider podcast.
    The trio doesn't hold back on the Cornhuskers trying to get out of the Sooners game in Norman on September 18th and finish up the podcast talking about the Sooners hoops run to end the 2020-21 season and the fact spring football is underway!

    Sooners 2022 class heating up with commitments, staff hitting road checking out OU targets, OU hoops in top 10 and crystal ball picks

    OUinsider.com/247Sports.com staff of Brandon Drumm, Collin Kennedy, and Parker Thune talk about the Sooners ChampU22 class heating up. They also discuss what five-star ATH Raleek Brown means for the Sooners WR recruiting in 2022 going forward, who Brandon, Collin, and Parker think will be the next commitment in the ChampU22 class, and also discuss why 2023 QB target (the only QB offer OU has out in 2022 and 2023 now) Malachi Nelson is so HUGE for Lincoln Riley and the Sooners moving forward.
    The OUinsider staff also discusses Sooners top-10 men's basketball team and why Lon Kruger is a Hall of Fame coach. The staff touches on how/why the Sooners guard play could be the key for Oklahoma and a deep NCAA tournament run. They also discuss why they believe Austin Reaves, Brady Manek, and Kur Kuath should return to OU for the 2021-22 basketball season, as well. Along with how their return could mean another top-10 team in that season for Lon Kruger and the Sooners.
    Lastly, the OUinsider staff touches on their recent crystal ball picks and talk about why they predict the Sooners to have a very, very good 2022 class and beyond. All that and more in the latest OUinsider/247Sporsts Under the Visor Sooners Podcast.

    OUinsider.com/247Sports Under the Visor Podcast: 2021 class done, next three commits in 2022 predictions,5-star Raleek Brown, transfer DL Big Kat Bryant talk, top 10 hoops team & more

    Lincoln Riley, Alex Grinch, Dennis Simmons, and the Oklahoma staff just closed out their LincUp21 class and met with the media on Wednesday. Our OUInisder.com and 247Sports staffers Brandon Drumm, Collin Kennedy, and Parker Thune talk about that presser. Also, they talk about Riley's thoughts and quotes on why the Sooners took only 16 commits and along with having five incoming transfers so far.
    The OU staff seems overly excited about players, and early enrollees, like Billy Bowman, Caleb Williams, Ethan Downs, Clayton Smith, Danny Stutsman, Mario Williams, and also pinpointed transfer Key Lawrence as a potential big-time player for OU in the 2021 season.
    Sooners assistant coach Dennis Simmons also met with the OU beat and talked about his promotion to Oklahoma outside wide receiver coach/passing game coordinator and assistant head coach. Simmons was previously the associate head coach at OU. OUinsider staff discusses why that move and promotion was big for Lincoln Riley and the Sooners moving forward, The 247sports staff also talks about why Simmons is one of the top assistants in all of college football.
    The OUinsider trio then talks about Big Kat Bryant and what he could be or mean for the already talented and deep Sooners defensive line. That brought on a question by Drumm as he asks Thune and Kennedy what another great DL performance in 2021 could do for the Sooners recruiting and program moving forward. That was obviously rhetorical, but he asked if it at the most critical juncture yet for OU and DL recruiting with Texas A&M and others coming around, as well? Will the SEC transfers to OU pay off in the SEC territory and recruiting if the four or five former SEC players come in and become NFL Draft picks? If so, how much can it pay off and what is the ceiling for the Sooners recruiting in the SEC territory? Can OU consistently steal elite talent out of that area? They discuss and say why they think it's possible or not possible.
    The staff also discusses their predictions for the next three commitments in the Sooners ChampU22 class, Raleek Brown's upcoming decision between OU and several elite P5 programs on Friday, and they talk OU hoops along with where they think the Sooners hoops team will be seeded in the NCAA tourney when their season is all said and done.
    Finally, the OUInsider staff discusses why a certain sect of the Sooners fanbase needs to chill and save their off-base opinions of Brendan Radley-Hiles (Bookie) after OUinsider broke the story on his potential transfer from Oklahoma the other day. The OUinsider trio talks about why Bookie will be sorely missed and why so many in the OU program (present and former) have such high-praise for Bookie.
    Also hear why Lincoln Riley loves Bookie as does Alex Grinch and others. Basically, the OUinsider staff gives their emotionally charged opinions on why some of the Sooners fan base is not right in their opinions of Bookie, along with his impact on the OU football program on and off the field.
    All that and more on the latest OUinsider Under the Visor Sooners Podcast!
