The Oklahoma quarterback battle on the recruiting trail has felt like a powder keg ready to explode the last couple of weeks.
It finally did as Cody Thomas (Colleyville, Texas/Heritage) verbally committed to the Sooners, his father Pete Thomas confirmed to SoonerNation. Cody Thomas let OU quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel on Tuesday night but stayed quiet about letting the news out, according to Cody’s father.
“We’re pumped for this opportunity,” Pete Thomas said. “I told Josh when we started this thing that Cody has been a Sooner fan since he was little.”
In the end, it all came down to relationships, Pete said.
“Every school you go to is going to have great facilities,” Thomas said. “But it’s the relationships that are different. Cody just hit it off real well with Josh right from the beginning.”
