    Is he thinking NBA? Other pro leagues? He is good but I don't know if he's pro-ready yet.

    He could probably start at strong safety for the Sonner football team.

    Sometimes it is not worth dealing with what comes with the big time 5 star recruits. They have been pampered all there careers and the risks/rewards doesn't add up.

    Re: Tommy Mason-Griffin Leaving OU?

    OU has a pretty good class coming in, but can you really expect them to be good enough to replace Warren, Gallon, Mason-Griffin, Ryan Wright & Tony Crocker?

    Re: Tommy Mason-Griffin Leaving OU?

    What about Gallon receiving three grand from a "financial adviser." Isn't that some kind of ncaa violation against the team, and not just the player?

    It looks like a bunch of CFs copied their old posts from here and pasted them in as comments to the article.

    If he's smart, he'll be able to work himself into a contract extension and vote of confidence.

    Yup. Similar stuff. Makes you think about how it has become harder to recruit and build a team with higher caliber players and some risks that go with it. Not just our problem though.

    I like Capels comments in the article..calling out the mental approach needed from players.
