David Shaw on Jameis Winston's comments that he wished he would've chosen Stanford: "Jameis and his dad know that I love them to death. I understand those sentiments. I think he's done extremely well with the decisions he's made. I have a fondness for Jameis and always will, but that's all in the past and I'm excited for what he can do in his NFL career... As Jameis said, Stanford is a special place, so I appreciate those words."

Oklahoma's third-ranked recruiting class took a major hit Thursday night, losing top commit Jalen Reagor. Reagor, the No. 49 player in the country and the sixth-ranked receiver, announced he was switching his pledge to Big 12 rival TCU. Reagor's change of heart was somewhat expected, but after he took an official visit to OU for the Sooners's game against Ohio State, he said he was "100 percent committed." However, the Horned Frogs never gave up in their pursuit and was able to get him to flip.
