Oklahoma Strikes Out On Top Two JUCO Targets

It was not a good day for Oklahoma on the recruiting trail.

It was not the best of days for the Oklahoma Sooners on the recruiting trail. First, JUCO safety Gerald Bowman chose the USC Trojans over the Oklahoma Sooners and Miami (Fl.). That was not necessarily a surprise, as recruiting insiders has expected the decision for weeks. 

But then, Bowman's teammate Kasseim Everett shocked the Sooners by choosing the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The guys at Crimson and Cream Machine are trying to make sense of the choice:

However, we still had one more chance for some good news Wednesday and that was from Bowman's teammate, cornerback Kasseim Everett. Everett had narrowed down his choices to OU and Texas Tech. Stoops and all OU has to offer vs. Tubberville who just unloaded most of his defensive staff. Have to like our chances on that one right?

Uh, not so much. Everett chose Texas Tech.

That's right people. He narrows his choices to us and the Red Raiders and he picks Lubbock freaking Texas. When the bleep did we start losing recruits to Texas freaking Tech? I guess about the time they kicked our you know whats up and down Owen Field huh?

It's just two guys and obviously you don't get everyone you target, but this has to be considered a pretty big whiff by Willie Martinez IMO.

Everett would have seen a lot of playing time for the Sooners, and this is indeed a big blow to OU.
