Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield: Gary Patterson, TCU "Hung Me Out To Dry" During Recruitment

In his rise to the top of the Big 12, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has made some enemies. The situation between he and Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who would not grant him a release from the school despite his walk-on status, is contentious. That isn't the coach that he has the most against, however. When asked which school disappointed him most during the high school recruitment process, which left him without a scholarship, Mayfield gave a slightly surprising answer.

Here's more, from the Tulsa World's Guerin Emig:

“They told me they were going to offer me a scholarship and kind of drug it out. I told other schools that I wasn’t interested because I thought I was going to go there. I truly believed that they were going to offer me because they told me that. They disappointed me and kind of hung me out to dry right before signing day.”

Mayfield has gotten the best of TCU both times he's taken the field against Patterson's Horned Frogs. As a freshman, Mayfield's Red Raiders beat TCU 20-10, and this year, his Sooners pulled off a dramatic 30-29 victory.
