Joe Mixon, ranked by Rivals as the No. 1 all-purpose back in the 2014 recruiting class, committed to the Sooners last weekend and immediately began talking up his future home to other recruits.

“That dude hits me up at least twice a week,” three-star defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao said with a laugh.

Lealaimatafao, from San Antonio, visited Oklahoma last March for junior day and liked what he saw, but committed to Texas later that month.

The 6-foot-2, 301-pound prospect, though, struck up a friendship with Mixon during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl last weekend, and decommitted from Texas a few days later amid the Longhorns' coaching changes.

Lealaimatafao said he plans to take his recruitment all the way to signing day on Wednesday, Feb. 5, and that several schools remain in the mix. “He just puts the thought in my head basically,” Lealaimatafao said of Mixon. (The Oklahoman)
