OU class of 2014: Quarterback

Signing day has come and gone, and the OU coaches are excited about who is coming to campus.

Oklahoma finished its Class of 2014 with 26 signees and the top-rated Scout class for the Big 12 conference.

Over the next week, Sooners Illustrated is going to look back at the class and let the OU coaches help explain why fans should be excited.


Justice Hansen

Hansen has been for OU so long that it's possible to forget how big of a showdown it was between OU and Texas A&M. Back at the spring game, it was simple. Hansen was going to commit in person to either Bob Stoops or Kevin Sumlin. Once he arrived in Norman, it was obvious he was all about the Sooners. Following the commitment, he did all he could to help recruit others to play for OU. On OU's radar since his freshman season, it was a perfect match for all parties involved. Hansen shouldn't play a big role in 2014, but the future looks bright.

Coaches corner

"When we recruit a quarterback, first and foremost we want him to be a great passer. Justice is that, but then you look at him and he can run. We've watched his athleticism and he got hurt so this year, but when he's been out there you see it and we see it here. He's an excellent athlete and a strong athlete with his arm." – OU coach Bob Stoops

"Justice is a kid who is here locally. He has been at our camp a bunch, competes in a great way. Ultimately, he was a guy that throughout the entire process was extremely high on our board. As soon as we got a chance to go around and see some of the other guys we felt like he was the right fit for us." – OU quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel
