5-Star Return = MVP?

It'd been waited on for a month and a half but five-star quarterback commitment Brock Vandagriff made his return to Norman last weekend and then to the field for his high school team this weekend. Vandagriff's return went better than anyone could have reasonably hoped and made him a contender for this week's MVP. But a few of his future blockers were also involved in the decision. And that's to forget Oklahoma's two defensive line commits putting up big numbers themselves.
