That really sucks. Maybe Chloe Bloom will be the answer. OU needs to go after and get a few bigs in 2020. Maybe that's what scared Kennedy Brown. No size. She would have to play the 5 at OU. In my opinion, OU would have been her best destination for playing time and success.

It really sucks. Hopefully we have a surprise commitment before signing day. We really need size next year.

So are we back on the "Fire Coale" train now?

The recruiting class is still a very good class...Bloom is a wild card as there isn’t much info on her. The class just isn’t the for sure great class it would have been with Brown.

Brown picked OSU, because she was told she can play with 3.

Wasn't that the real issue with Mulkey as well? She wanted to play wing, at 6'9"?!

Im not sure, I guess kids want to shoot the ball, and waiting for a guard to throw it in means less touches, most big kids want to handle the ball in the open court, be listed at forward and stuff like that... its funny because the 69 player OSU signed last class also wants to play on the wing...

Yet, the person that everyone wants is the banger who will go to the boards.

I think Baylor has had a couple that didn't want to play tough and transferred. They are now strong inside. We watched Texas with a 6-4 post who really didn't like to be under the rim. With all of the size in the Big Twelve, the leading rebounder for a two-year stretch was Johnson of Iowa State who was 5-10. Baylor had a 5-11 star rebounder.

I am not on Coale. She has had 2 great recruiting classes. Just sad that a 5 can't see the potential at OU for playing time as a freshman. Not knowing much about Bloom? She might be the answer. Not sure who the big's are for 2020. C Clark committed to Stanford.

I've seen Bloom listed from 6-2 to 6-5. I really hope it's closer to 6-5

I'll say from the footage I've seen of Bloom, compared to everyone else on court, she looked to be more around 6'2" range to me. She's a thicker girl so I'm sure she's got some strength to play down low, but she wasn't towering over everyone by any means. Hope I'm wrong.

If Sherri is going to play fast, a big, lumbering girl wouldn't really fit, but sure would have been icing on the cake coach has baked.

My guess is by conference it's Lampkin, Bloom, Simpson, EJ in the middle -- and in that order. Seems like, from early rumors EJ has already sealed her own fate.

So who is realistic for 2020? Looks like OU wants a PG.

How many ships will we have available? Assuming that we only take three (Bloom, Scott & Gregory) for 2019... I say we need to go for some talented big girls, and when I say "talented" I mean big girls that can run the floor and also shoot away from the basket. Say we get a point card, a combo type guard/wing, and a big girl. That is if every single player stays and nobody transfers, that would be our need. These days I would not be surprised if one of our 6 newcomers doesn't transfer out after a season or two (hope I'm wrong of course).
