I have been told that OU would tell him to move on if the right transfer came available

And Obanor fits that bill
Correct, I didn't mean in my post that it was Rick's choice to stay, just meant if he remains at OU. I know that OU doesn't have to guarantee his ship once he decides to enter the portal.

What I didn't know if OU would actually fill the ship and force his hand regardless if he changed his mind or not. From this post by Boulder, it sounds like they would if they can upgrade. As they should.

Like cvangild stated, these kids need to understand what their decisions mean by entering the portal. It isn't DoorDash where they just decide what they feel like for that day or moment.

Transfer Portal and NIL are all fun and games today, but my guess is the excitement of these two will wear off and it will revert a little bit away from the madhouse it has become this year once reality settles in for most.

Giving kids one free transfer & automatic sit out after that one should help some. The NCAA can’t give any waivers though.

Our shot with Obanor really begins with if Big Rick stays or not. If KT and Gordon has already started dripping on him, maybe that’s a sign Issanza is going to leave for sure.
The Other Site … who knew? I’ve seen it referenced, had no clue …
So big Rick doesn’t get to choose if he stays or goes if we fill his scholly?
I doubt Obanor is coming here with the big transfers we’ve already taken …

Doesn’t pertain to OU per se but happy to see Max back

Obanor is staying in the portal.

I can't imagine Obanor staying in the portal with Max back, though I suppose it would be nice to spend a year at a big-time program. If Obanor stays put, that will lessen the sting of not having an open roster spot.

I'm also very excited Abmas is back for another year to tear it up in the NCAA. He was a delight to watch this year and I wasn't excited for him to sit on an NBA bench.

It's pretty apparent OU has at least one guy on the roster that is either leaving or considering leaving since we are going after 2 transfers.

Info with the new staff is hard to come by. Wearily quiet out there in regards to the roster right now.

What r you referring to? They already receive the criticism on their social media without any of the compensation. Now they just get compensation.

Money changes everything, even, I suspect, if it's not coming from the university. If you asked pro athletes if making millions upped the pressure on them to perform from the fans, I'm confident they'd say yes. Not that there isn't pressure at the major college level, but it'll only increase when they're making more than the average fan.

My point is this kid is telling all the fans to "keep it coming"...as in the begging him to come to their school. He wants to "feel the love"...just pointing out that hope he can handle the real criticism when he doesn't produce..it'll be 10 times worse.

C'mon man, it isn't that hard to see...unless ya haven't been around HS/college athletes.

On top of that, he put bama as a top 4 and they are not even recruiting him...LOL...what an idiot.
