A last minute change of heart has landed the University of Oklahoma a top signee as Kass Everett has committed to the Sooners.

Everett originally committed to Texas Tech Wednesday, but since then the Oklahoma football office reports he changed his mind and decided to go with the Sooners.

In fact, he changed his mind three times. Tuesday night Everett went to bed after deciding he would be a Sooner, but once he woke up Wednesday morning he told in an interview that he "just didn't sleep easy" with his first decision to go to OU so he decided to switch to Texas Tech.

At a signing ceremony Wednesday afternoon Everett put on a Texas Tech hat, seemingly making his final decision.

Since Wednesday afternoon, Everett changed his mind again and his paperwork ended up in Norman making him a Sooner.

The 5'11, 185 pound cornerback out of Philadelphia is listed as a four star recruit.

During the 2011 season at Pierce in Los Angeles, Everett earned first team Southern California Football Association honors after compiling 25 tackles, three tackles for loss, five passes broken up and one fumble recovery in seven games.


Everett attended high school at Roman Catholic Cahillite in Philadelphia where he rushed for over 1,500 yards as a senior year. Besides Tech and Oklahoma, Everett also had offers from South Florida, Kansas, Iowa State, Indiana, Kentucky, Utah and Illinois.

Wednesday the Sooners also signed Brandon Green. Green is a tight end out of Fort Scott Community College.

"Brandon is a guy we are really excited about. He's an excellent player and has excellent character," said Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops. "He's a guy we feel that can come in and make an immediate impact on our program."

 Green was named to the All-Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference second team in 2011 after finishing the season with 15 receptions for 213 yards in eight games.

Both Green and Everett will begin class in January and participate in the Sooners spring training.

Wednesday was the first day mid-semester transfers can sign agreements with new schools.
