Mesquite (Texas) West Mesquite three-star defensive end Dimarya Mixon took an official visit to Oklahoma earlier this fall. He was able to get a feel for the campus and meet the players, and get a look at what coach Bob Stoops and the Sooners had to offer.
On Saturday, the Arizona State commitment was in the Cotton Bowl as the Sooners hosted the Texas Longhorns for their annual meeting at the Texas State Fair.

"It was exciting," Mixon said. "Those fans are crazy up there. It was my first time. I had a really good time."
Mixon made sure to grab a few funnel cakes and looked on as the Sooners topped Texas 63-21. There were several aspects of the game that caught Mixon's attention, but one thing in particular stood above the rest.
"The defense caught my attention. They weren't playing any games," Mixon said.
He watched the defensive ends closely throughout the game, and came away feeling good about what he saw in Oklahoma's defensive scheme.
"Just watching it, it could be something I could possibly become a part of," Mixon said.
There was also talk of Mixon checking out the Baylor/TCU game, but the standout defensive end decided not to take the trip to Waco this weekend.
"I was thinking about going down but the weather was looking kind of bad so it was too far of a drive," Mixon said.
Currently, he does not have any other visits scheduled, and when it comes to his commitment status, he says he is still with the Sun Devils.
"I'm still committed as or right now, but I'm still looking and keeping my options open," Mixon said. "It's not 100-percent but it's not exactly a soft (commit)."
While he remains committed to Arizona State there are a few other teams who have also caught his attention.
"Right now, I'm still committed to Arizona State and then I really like West Virginia and Oklahoma," Mixon said. "And I'm still waiting to take my trip to Mizzou."
