Things are getting weird in Norman. First reported by SoonerScoop.com, 2015 fullback commit Dalton Wood up and left Norman in the middle of the night.
Wood is a three-star pick up out of McAlester, OK, but after failing to report when he was originally scheduled to, there was some concern around Sooner Nation whether or not Wood would arrive for summer workouts . Those fears were put to rest when his high school coach said he would arrive Wednesday night. An appointment Wood kept, and all seemed well.
Seemed being the key word, because by Thursday morning Wood was nowhere to be found. He bolted in the middle of the night, and no one is real sure why.
“I got a call from Cale Gundy this morning that Dalton had left in the middle of the night,” Bryan Pratt, Wood’s high school coach, said according to SoonerScoop.com. “I don’t know what the heck’s going on.”
It’s a bizarre twist in an already strange saga. It’s unknown whether or not Wood will return to Norman, but this probably isn’t the last we’ve heard on this story.
