Signing day is almost here. New to the recruiting game or just want a refresher of what has already happened, here is a look at Oklahoma’s class heading into Wednesday.
League City (Texas) Clear Falls WR John Humphrey (6-0, 165, No. 83 WR)
The Intel: OU or Notre Dame. Boy, you have to love having those choices. That’s what Humphrey was looking at before making his call for the Sooners in August.
Humphrey wanted to wait a little longer, but there was no guarantee that spot was going to be there for him at OU at a later date. So why wait when you know it’s where you want to be.
His senior season was marred with quarterback injuries so he never really got a chance to showcase his skills. And when we say skills, we mean that game-changing speed.
Humphrey knew from the start he wanted to be a mid-year enrollee, and he is already in Norman and enjoying his first couple of weeks at OU.
Despite having a new position coach when spring ball starts, Humphrey said he is not worried about having to make that transition.
Blinn (Texas) CC WR Dede Westbrook (6-1, 170, No. 22 Scout Juco 50)
The Intel: The goal in landing any juco player is for that player to be ready to compete the first day they set foot on campus.
Mission accomplished with Westbrook. Following an incredible year at Blinn, he has not missed a beat since arriving at OU last month. His ability is already getting rave reviews, and spring ball hasn’t even hit yet.
Westbrook brings so much to the table for the Sooners that you could argue he’s one of the most important additions for the class. He can stretch the field with his speed and has tremendous hands.
And don’t forget about his ability return punts. OU lacked a game-changer in that department last season, but Westbrook can make things happen in the blink of an eye either as a receiver or as a returner.
It took him less than 72 hours to commit to OU after his official visit, and what a pickup it was for the Sooners.
Dallas Bishop Dunne WR Adrian Miller (6-3, 170, No. 73 WR)
The Intel: Once Lincoln Riley took over as OU’s offensive coordinator, he let the world know A.D. Miller was now a legitimate target for the Sooners.
Miller was among the first people Riley followed on Twitter even before Riley was officially named the offensive coordinator by the Sooners.
Less than two weeks, Miller was decommitted from Illinois and offered by the Sooners and ready to take a trip to Norman.
Signing day surprise? Be on the watch for Moore (Okla.) Westmoore wide receiver Dahu Green. Committed to Washington State, Green visited OU last weekend as well. Some thought he would commit before leaving campus, but things are still up in the air as we enter the early part of this week. Did Miller take his spot? Is Indiana in the hunt? Both legit questions.
Signing day result? Green flipped to OU on Monday night and signed. No doubts at all.
