Steven Parker commits

      The Oklahoma Sooners got a early gift the day before National Signing Day. Steven Parker, the top high school football player in the state of Oklahoma, committed to the Sooners.

      Parker played both offense and defense in high school but he's projected as safety in college. Parker received scholarship offers from dozens of major college programs before settling on the Sooners. He says it was a tough call.

      "There was a time I almost committed to OSU There was a time I almost committed to Texas A&M. Texas A&M was actually high on my list after I visited there. I told my parents I wanted to go there. It turns out the DB(defensive back)coach left. They got a new coach. He's a good coach but it just didn't fit."

      Wednesday is the first day that Parker and other recruits can sign with a school.
