Full ou muscle head. Why do you feel compelled to say stuff like that?

This isn't an argument. They are doing this to sign him, Lon was simply helping out. I'd put it at 85% that he won't ever play both sports at OU. By the slim chance he does, it will consist of him sitting on the bench in both. Now, it's possible he could choose basketball. But 100% he isn't on both teams past his first year, if even at all in the beginning.

From this ou muscle head, you can take that to the bank.

I knew Julius Peppers played BB as well as FB at UNC. He played both sports well, too. Didn’t the Tarheels have a guard around that time who played both sports?

EDIT: Remembered it. Ronald Curry played FB and BB at UNC. He’s not on that list.

Didnít mean disrespect. Itís Just a saying....

I tend to agree. Heíll have to pick.

Ou has proven to at least try with 2 sport guys. Obviously football baseball.

Who do you feel compelled to predict the future (thereby implying that Coach Kruger is basically lying to NRK)? Why not wait it out and see what happens? As Ada points out, it's not unheard of for a player to compete in two sports, so who's to say NRK won't prove to be one of those exceptions?

It would be difficult to play football and basketball at the same time. Football and baseball is tough enough and they donít really overlap, except for spring ball.

Definitely difficult but not impossible.

As an aside, I agree with Skyvue about Coach Krugerís involvement in NRKís recruitment. Doing it to improve the football teamís chances of signing him is not Lonís style. Heís too much of a stand up guy to be disingenuous in using those tactics in recruiting.

He’s a football guy. Would be a great basketball practice body, better than any walk-on big anyone could get.

I didn't either, all good.

But again, football-baseball is much different that football-basketball. Look, i'm rooting for the kid to have a great career in anything he wants to at OU. I'm a little torn, I love the idea of a 6-7 long defensive end disrupting passing lanes. But I also love the idea of a 6-7 banger helping the hoopsters for 4 years.

Has Charlie Ward been mentioned? Again, he's a QB. Extremely rare for a lineman or linebacker. Julius Peppers was a freak. Not sure how much basketball he played. If this guy stays on both teams he won't play for either, except mopup. It would probably be easier for him to play bball if he actually does split time. I'm sure quite a few guys have simply been on the teams. Now, if we're talking about heavily contributing in both or starting? No.

If this guy is another Julius Peppers then yoo hoo!

Quick, somebody get Lincoln and Lon on the horn! The Oracle of OU Hoops has spoken! Perhaps the waste of a scholarship can be averted!

I'm just giving my opinion on this subject based on years of following both sports. I hope this kid chooses one sport at OU and is an All American in one of them. I'm sorry my opinion seems to upset you so.

If OUHoops gave out awards, you'd win Biggest Drama Queen by a landslide but in the comedian category, a ways down.
