When Mesquite (Texas) West Mesquite defensive end Dimarya Mixon re-opened his recruitment in November, there were several thoughts about where the three-star standout was looking.
The 6-3, 265-pound Mixon had been committed to Arizona State since May, but took official visits to Oklahoma, and West Virginia in addition to the Sun Devils in the fall, and there was much speculation the Oklahoma Sooners were rising up his list with lightning speed.
Oklahoma definitely left an impression, and Mixon admits as much.

"As of right now I'm leaning towards them, but I'm not making any decisions at the moment," Mixon said. "They're a high caliber program and they're playing well and they have a lot of things I like out there."
The Sooners may hold an edge right now, but there are a few others who have caught the eye of the standout defender.
"My top four are Oklahoma, West Virginia, Missouri, and Baylor. Those are the main ones I'm focused on," Mixon said. "They are high caliber programs that are doing great things right now and have a lot of things I like about them."
He also has not eliminated the Sun Devils, and expects to see them swing by for a visit along with coaches from Washington this week.
Mixon has already taken three official visits and with two slots left is mulling over his options.
"I was just talking to the Missouri coach about setting up one," Mixon said.
An unofficial visit to Baylor for the Bears match-up with Oklahoma State is also in discussion.
Mixon is currently preparing to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl to be held in Houston, Texas, and he is not rushing anything when it comes to recruiting or a decision.
"Everything is going pretty well," Mixon said. "I'm just looking at my options and taking everything slow."
