Anderson, Humphrey, Evans are Sooners

Rodney Anderson, John Humphrey and Bobby Evans have all arrived in Norman. They're all officially Sooners.

National signing day is still more than three weeks away, but the Oklahoma coaching staff can breathe a sigh of relief as six recruits for the 2015 class are already locked down.

This weekend will see three junior college transfers and three early enrollees from high school head to Norman to begin their journey as Sooners.

So what is OU getting with these guys? We conclude with the mid-year high school enrollees.

OT Bobby Evans

Bringing another Evans boy home. For the second consecutive class, one of Bobby Joe Evans’ sons is heading to OU. It was Tay Evans for 2014 and now it’s Bobby for this class, who has the honor as the first pledge of the class. The excitement is high for Evans, but he’s going to have to bounce back from injury first. He tore his ACL in October and most likely won’t be able to participate in spring camp. Still, being on campus and learning the OU system will make the time incredibly valuable for the four-star prospect. Evans will also get a chance to be roommates with Tay, something they’re both excited about. Evans is ranked No. 7 at offensive tackle and No. 98 in the Scout 100.

RB Rodney Anderson

Just because he’s quiet doesn’t mean Anderson doesn’t make some noise on the football field. Coming off a remarkable senior season where he rushed for 2,684 yards and 39 touchdowns, Anderson is ready to join the loaded backfield in Norman. Anderson will be the only member of OU’s class to not take an official visit, but he said he’s OK with that. After decommitting from Texas A&M last spring, he committed to OU in June and never looked back. All he wants is a chance to compete. He’ll get that at OU, and he’ll have to show why he belongs. Ranked the No. 18 running back in the nation, Anderson is No. 137 in the Scout 150.

WR John Humphrey

What OU sees in Humphrey is simple – speed. Speed, speed and more speed. Ranked as a three-star cornerback by Scout, Humphrey’s future at OU is certainly at wide receiver. There was a brief scare this week when Jay Norvell was fired, but Humphrey is still 100 percent with the Sooners and ready to get his college career rolling. He didn’t have a great senior season, but he fared well at the Semper Fi All-American Game, which has given him a lot of confidence going forward. Humphrey doesn’t have the best size, but he looks to have a lot of potential as a slot receiver going forward.
