Agreed. Don't think it makes much difference either way. I just doubt we can find many comparable walk-ons for basketball.

In practice I agree. Maybe by his junior or senior year if he only focused on basketball.

Disagree. But all good.

It's worth remembering that he'd already accepted a hoops offer at Washington State, which is no blue blood, of course, but it's in a Power 5 conference, and his offer obviously wasn't of the grab-a-warm-body-at-the-last-minute variety.

I think you may be thinking about NRK. Not that I think either would be just a warm body.

Right you are. Thanks for the correction. No recruiting expert am I. I get the various recruits confused too easily.

That wasn’t Coleman, it was another OU football commit. Coleman had b-ball offers from Mcneese St & LTU (which is a solid program).

I think Coleman could help OU on the court his jr/sr year, but not with him splitting time in football which would be his main focus.

Coleman has reportedly decommitted from KU.

You mean Lon or Lincoln or both of them?

I read on another site that Michigan State has been hot on his trail all along as a basketball recruit.

OU walked away from Coleman -- not the other way around. I don't see his decommitment as being big news here, as we don't recruit against KU in football.

IMO, OU football commit, 6’ 7” 248 defensive end, Rawlins-Kibonge, is a dual sport athlete who is more likely to play both sports. He was a basketball commit at Washington State before he gave football a try and got the attention of schools like OU. Lon has already embraced the idea.

I think this was his last his last post here, and dammit, it makes me a little emotional. I wish he could have survived a few more days and gotten to experience one more win over Texas. RIP Usedtobe1.
