Guess The Recruiting Class: Installment 1

We're going to play a new game this year. We'll call it "Guess the Recruiting Class." Subscribers have asked many times over the years to select a dream class. To be honest that would be easy but it is never practical or realistic because only a handful of schools such as Texas, USC, Ohio State, and Florida come anywhere close to delivering a "dream class." Instead, we'll guess the class.

So, every so often we will put out an updated guess at what the class will look like next February, realizing that recruits rise and fall in the eyes of the Oklahoma State coaches and the Cowboys rise and fall in the eyes of some recruits. The recruiting process is very fluid. Remember this is only a guess.

First, we have to identify the positions that OSU is recruiting. Mike Gundy is fairly open about discussing that from time to time, so we have a decent feel. It can also change based on what happens in the program and with the active scholarship players.

We also know that if a huge game-breaker prospect wants to go to OSU, even if his position is full, then the set up can change and the coaches will take that difference maker player.

Here is our first go.
