NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says the Sooners
didn't come across anything irregular when they were recruiting Cam
Newton.

The NCAA is reviewing the recruitment of Newton and allegations
made by a former Mississippi State quarterback, who said a man
tried to secure payment from Mississippi State in order for Newton
to play there.

Stoops said at his news conference Tuesday that he "didn't
notice anything and none of our coaches did as we were recruiting
him."

Stoops says he knew of "nothing at all" out of the ordinary
and that Newton's recruitment "could not have been better."
