Bob Stoops: Du’Vonta Lampkin on campus at Oklahoma


On Monday, Oklahoma head football coach, Bob Stoops, confirmed that after two years Du’Vonta Lampkin is on campus and in the process of joining the football team. However, he is not currently practicing.

The defensive tackle committed to OU as a junior in high school in November of 2013, but decommitted the following summer. He finally committed to Texas this past January.   However, just two days after signing day, Texas defensive line coach, Chris Rumph, left to take a position at Florida.

In June, Lampkin, who was openly disappointed with Rump’s departure, announced that Texas’ foreign language requirements kept him from being admitted to school, therefore, he will not longer attend UT.

The guidelines state that the letter of intent is “declared null and void if you have a written denial of admission.” Lampkin does not have that letter, so Texas coach, Charlie Strong, stated this weekend that he will not release Lampkin from his letter of intent for fear that this would set a dangerous precedent for other recruits.

Strong told Burntorangenation.com, “What I don’t want to see is that all of a sudden we just set this standard where if a young man says, ‘Hey, I have to finish this course but if I don’t finish it, I can go somewhere else.”

Bob Stoops maintains that they’re still working on his eligibility, but that he will receive a scholarship to play at Oklahoma.
