The Oklahoma Sooners offense is looking good heading into the 2014 college football season, but there are still question marks on the defensive side of the ball. A Twitter conversation between four-star defensive back Kendall Randolph and former Oklahoma Sooners' star Tony Jefferson on Jan. 12 may hint that Randolph might be the next addition to the Oklahoma Sooners football recruiting list.

Randolph posted that he wanted to be the next Tony Jefferson and then used the hashtags, "OU," "BoomerSooner" and "Only1." This is a big deal because Randolph is scheduled to visit Norman on Jan. 31.

Jefferson responded and said that Randolph should try to be better than he was. He then said the only way to do that is to go to a school like Oklahoma, where he will play for championships every year.

According to Rivals, Kendall Randolph is the 50th ranked player in the state of Florida and has offers from the national champion Florida State Seminoles, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Stanford Cardinal and more. There are 24 total schools on the list that have offered Randolph a scholarship.

While OU hasn't won a national title since 2000, they have really shot up in the eyes of recruits when they beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl by two touchdowns. It proved that OU was still a major player in college football, and after the number one all-purpose running back in the nation committed to OU, the floodgates seem ready to open.

Kendall Randolph might be the latest prize for this Oklahoma Sooners football recruiting season.
