This isn’t unusual as you might think.
It is one thing for prospects to tell you things you want to hear in meetings, but what happens when they are on their own. Mayfield was tipped off he was being followed.
Later on Tuesday, Mayfield received an alert from a trusted source that he had a tail in Norman. A private investigator, he was told, was tracking his movements on behalf of a team. The MMQB was unable to verify the identity of that team, but it should come as no surprise that any NFL franchise considering a (minimum) four-year commitment and tens of millions of dollars to a 22-year-old might like to know how he spends nights near his old stomping grounds.
While the MMQB can’t verify, BSO sources have a good idea which the team was, but without proof, we can’t say, but can give you a hint.
Don’t stop, get it, get it.
