Houston (Texas) Cy Fair running back Sam McGuffie attended the University of Oklahoma's junior day with offers from Texas A&M, Kansas, Kansas State and Texas Tech. He came home with an official offer directly from Bob Stoops himself.
"I got to meet with Coach Stoops and we watched my highlight tape and I think he was shocked," McGuffie said. "He really liked what I could do on the field and offered me right there. I was so excited I started calling people right after I left his office.

McGuffie drove to Sooner country with J.B. Shugarts and his father Bret. Once on campus they met up with Gilmer's Justin Johnson.
"It was great," he said. "Justin showed us around and we just hung out. It was a very comfortable atmosphere."
The trio was hitting the Oklahoma-Texas Tech game later that night.
"I'm going to wait, but I really like Oklahoma," McGuffie said.
