Like Todd, Norvell is also working to land another four-star wide receiver and Rivals250 member in Corey Holmes, who comes from the opposite side of the country out of the Sunshine State and who was also in attendance on Saturday.

The 6-foot-1 and 174-pound prospect out of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas had voiced just a few weeks before the spring game that he would have to wait until the summer time before he could take a trip to Norman. Not too long after that, the plan changed in the Sooners favor.

I had just finished talking with coach Norvell at the time and he said he would like for me to come up for the spring game. And I mentioned it to my dad and he looked at the calendar and that weekend (spring game) was actually free.
