College coaches often lie to the players they’re recruiting.
“You’re going to start for us, definitely,” they say.
“We’ll turn you into a first-round draft pick,” others claim.
“We’re enclosing the south end of Memorial Stadium,” Oklahoma coaches told Ryan Broyles in 2007.
While the third statement might not have been true at the time, the Sooners are making good on their promise roughly seven years later.
Oklahoma is filling in the south endzone! Epic! They said that would be done in 07 as a recruit but better late than never!
