Mayfield fired back.

Baker Mayfield is gearing up for the NFL. The former Oklahoma star recently showcased his skills at the Senior Bowl, and will have another opportunity to shine at the NFL combine in late April.

Mayfield shined during his time with the Sooners. In his senior season, Mayfield led Oklahoma to an 11-1 regular season record, including a 29-24 win over Texas.

It was Baker's second win over Texas in the last three years, and the second-consecutive win for Oklahoma over its rival. The Sooners took down Texas 45-40 during the 2016 season.

The Red River Rivalry runs deep. Even recruits get into the action without have stepped foot on a college football field -- at least as a college player that is.

On Wednesday morning Texas landed a top defensive tackle recruit from Houston. 4-star defensive tackle Keondre Coburn announced he's signing with the Longhorns on Twitter.

In his post on Twitter, Coburn promised to beat Oklahoma. Now, that's not a surprising move, as plenty of recruits guarantee wins and championships.

The interesting part is that Baker Mayfield responded. That's right, check it out.

The rivalry stays heated. Oklahoma and Texas both finished with top-10 recruiting classes.
