Wait, that's impossible.
I've been told repeatedly that twitter is not used as an important recruiting platform.

It seems like 2018 is shaping up to a really special class. Hopefully we can get a good/elite center, and we will be a top 10 team again with these recruits I believe.

Yes I think Williams will be a game changer for OU! Maybe she’ll play a little inside and outside wow... this is a great day to be a sooner fan!

I would think so, even tho if OU does sign one more guard( I think they will) people might start calling for her head again.

While checking on the status of another potential recruit, I was directed to HornFans where I noticed that:

1. they were very complimentary about the commitment of Williams, and,
2. they indicated that Baylor has zero commits for 2018.

I think Baylor could take a dip this year, most of the kids they are looking at in 2018 are the top players in th class, but I think DeCosta heads to Louisville and Smith to South Carolina... only time will tell.

Once again, this came out of nowhere.

Is #8 the highest ranking we have had for a while?

Wonder if this was the "visitor" mentioned in soonerpd's thread about meet and greet?

I believe this would be our 1st top 10 commitment since AT back in 2006...

An insanely huge pickup. A real recruiting coup.
Just like Trae Young can massively help Lon's team, you add Madison Williams, a true top ten player, and it can have the same effect.
Llanusa/Tatum/Williams that's a player core that could take back control of the conference.
Also, potentially OU's best guard/wing group since Drob/Nyeshia/Hand.
Adding two elite kids in 2018 is a great way to make up for Dungee defection.

It's the highest rated african american player from Texas that Sherri has ever "signed" ( i realize signing day is not until November, but verbals like this are almost a lock to sign).
Tatum and Williams would appear to give OU a foothold back into elite Texas recruiting.
They seem like players that other players would want to play with. Hopefully a sign that OU
will be a force in Texas HS recruiting moving forward 2019/2020

Now, if Sherri can close with a Power Forward/Center type, then you have to give this
class an A.
We just got hit with one major great surprise. I'll think positively about a 2nd one before November.

This is fantastic news! To be honest, i'm surprised, she's not SC's typical type of player, she reminds me very very much of Nyeisha Stevenson (prob mispelled that, sorry) and a little bit of Amanda Thompson, which is exciting! Just imagine now if we could get a good center, and also DeCosta to commit! That along with Llanusa would definitely make for a Big 12 contender! As is though, I think this class is the most promising in a LONG time, IF we can get a solid big girl committed. How many more scholarships could we give for 2018? We have 4 which is pushing the biggest class we've had in a while (5 is to my best knowledge our biggest).

with the 4 guard commits in this class, we still have five open scholarships to give out in 2018. My guess is we will use 2-3 more scholarships for 2018. With 2 going to center/power forward and 1 more to a guard possibly.

Some of her highlights, her game reminds me of Angle McCoughtry, Atlanta Dream Star, who played at Louisville...

That's who she really reminds me of! So, if these videos are of her as a junior in high school, assuming she continues to develop as a player, I cannot wait to see how good she will be and how much she helps our program! This is of course assuming she stays at OU all four years (fingers crossed/knock on wood)!! Any idea on any other players we are recruiting that may realistically commit?

Excellent recruit!
Now, if she doesnt decommit or get here then transfer. We need to keep her.

This is a perfect recruit for OU. I feel we've lacked the grit to consistently take down top competition. Players like Williams and Llanusa will help with that in the future. We simply have to score a dominant big, and I feel the pieces may be in line to return to the top 10/15 in the country. Texas and Baylor are stacked; their 2018 classes are irrelevant to our discussion, to be honest. Look at their rosters!

Here she is with arguably the top recruit in Christyn Williams in an interview.

I believe they might be cousins, but I’m not 100% sure...

She is a 2019 recruit but if we could get Amihere we would have a team with elite level athleticism. Based on the game streams I have seen of Pellington she is also an elite athlete...she just needs to work on her outside shot.
