"It's a stompin' in Norman folks, an old fashioned stompin'!" - Brent Musberger(TTU - 2008)
"Back home a lot of people doubt me and that is going to motivate me because I have people that actually tell me I am not going to make it at Oklahoma."
This was a telling comment. Lots of people tell kids that about everything in life - you can't make it, you can't do it, you're not smart enough, etc... Yet these same types of people will tell kids that they can somewhere else maybe less challenging not realizing the message they're sending is go somewhere less competive, go somewhere you don't have to try, go somewhere you don't have to be as smart.
My message is this one for all of OU's recruits - when you're told you can't make it at Oklahoma whether student or athelete, that's exactly the place you want to go. Not to prove anyone wrong by going to the place you're told you're not good enough to be at but because that's exactly where you want and need to be to compete.
You can go to East Applehorn State and play, why go to Oklahoma where you can't make it? That's why you go Oklahoma!
It's amazing to me anyone would think Neal cannot be successful at OU or anywhere he went. I have heard lots of recruiting services praise him.
If I were able to talk to him I would tell him that one of the best talent evaluators in college football today bob stoops believes he will be successful or he wouldn't have offered him.
Sounds like a great kid. Glad he's coming to OU. DGB might have something to say though about Durron being the top player in Missouri. I hope we get 'em both. Obviously.
His drive will take him anywhere he wants to go. His is the kind of character we need more of.
Thanks James. This guy seems to have his head on straight.
Dang it. How long till kick off? Love it when kids love what I love. Boomer Sooner.
I'm glad Durron is coming to OU. I can see him playing as a freshman.
With our depleted WR corp he very well could! Really any of those guys if they show up strong could play next year; especially (God forbid) if we lose Jaz.
Live On University!
In every interview Durron has given he has projected the same positive attitude toward life, football, and desire to be an Oklahoma Sooner. Hopefully this latest interview will lesson the concerns by some that Durron was losing interest in OU.
Can't wait to see him on the field catching footballs next season in Crimson and Creme. Boomer!
