    Tulsa was the first school to offer 2021 Wagoner (OK) defensive end Isaac Smith, who recently took in a Junior Day on the TU campus. The 6-foot-6 prospect was impressed with what Tulsa had to offer.

    Frisco (TX) Lone Star’s Jaden Nixon was a key piece of a 2019 team that fell one win shy of reaching the UIL 5A Division I State Championship game. Nixon’s involvement for the Rangers’ explosive offense featured him making numerous dynamic plays from the backfield.

    It didn’t take long for the University of Tulsa to notice Nixon. He spent March 7, junior day, on campus and received an offer from the Golden Hurricane staff.

    Marquis Shoulders does it all for the Katy (TX) Tompkins Falcons. He returns kicks, lines up in the backfield and anywhere else on the field for that matter. So it’s easy to see what Tulsa saw in him when they offered him on February 4.

    Does anyone know if TU has paid any attention to Shea Dan, WR from Union? Kid's 6'5" and really nice hands from what I can see in his JR season film. Union's biggest problem last year was playing a RB as QB. Kid was a nice athlete but Union could not really pass on plays they had to pass. Union's offense was just weird. Maybe it was the OL that struggled. Union did have a backup QB who looks the part. I think he was a SO. Stands about 6'4" and a big arm. He came in the state quarterfinal game against BA late. Can really throw the ball.

    Back to Dan. Can really get up high and go get the ball. Runs decent routes for a 16 year old kid. But he seems to have GIANT hands. TBH, his stride reminded me of Key. Long, and for a big guy, turned them over pretty well. Decent blocker from the tape I saw. Right now his only offer is Missouri Western. My guess is a lot of this is because you just haven't quite seen what he can do in a passing heavy offense because that's not what Union was last year (surprisingly). If schools are able to do camps at all this summer, he may hit the radar some.

    TU is always aware of Union kids, but I haven't seen or heard of strong interest there up to this point. Shea Dan was not at Tulsa's junior day on March 7. He just picked up his first offer from Missouri Western, and he's being recruiting by Central Arkansas, NSU and SW Ok State.

    I saw his 1st offer as he tweeted it out. I just find it weird that a giant WR like this is not on the radar locally considering we don't really have anyone for that role to stretch or go over the top. He's thin right now but a lot of HS kids who are this tall are thin and need that 1st solid yr of college S&C to build that muscle and bulk up a little.

    Tulsa added another piece to its 2021 football recruiting class with the commitment of 3-star running back Bill Jackson. The 5-foot-10 and 190-pounder from St. Louis (MO) Cardinal Ritter chose the Hurricane over an impressive list of other offers.

    I was out in the mountains last week, so I'm a little out of the loop, but I know they've been trying. I think staying close to home appeals to Drummond.

    There is a family tie to TU as I mentioned. I wonder if someone like Zaven might be the guy to use as another small town kid who stayed close and has really blossomed at TU. I like Drummond's arm and pocket awareness a lot. Once he hits a college S&C program I think you'll see him blossom into a candidate for the NFL. He's got all the potential and enough physical tools to develop into an NFL caliber player.

    Tulsa football coaches snagged their second commitment of the week with a verbal pledge from 2021 Shreveport (LA) Green Oaks linebacker Jaden Moore. The 6-foot-2 and 215-pounder chose TU over offers from UAB, Southern Miss, Louisiana-Monroe and several others.
