Oklahoma has done a lot of things differently with the 2017 class and that includes the number of mid-year enrollees.
SoonerSquad17 is in Norman, well, a lot of them are. OU has 11 mid-year enrollees for the class so for those who need a refresher or an introduction, time to know the next batch of names.
Get to know the newest Sooners.
Shawnee (Okla.) High C Creed Humphrey
The story: Ahh, an interesting one here. Originally committed to Texas A&M, Humphrey flipped to OU not too long after and stayed strong with the Sooners. OU wasn’t even close to among the first to recognize what Humphrey brought to the table, but once Bill Bedenbaugh was onboard, he did a great job of taking away any potential negative feelings with Humphrey. During the season, Humphrey was all-in and attended as many games as possible.
2017 impact: Give credit to Bedenbaugh for how well he has done at offensive line. With the top eight coming back and Logan Roberson in the mix, hard to see Humphrey playing in 2017. That’s not a bad thing. Erick Wren getting the extra year is another noteworthy thing. Humphrey will have his chance, but circle 2018 for that.
Scout says: While rated as a center Humphrey is big enough and powerful enough to be considered as an option to play either guard position in college as well. He is quick off the ball and very powerful at the point of attack. Once he gets his hands on you it is pretty much over as he plays with balance and leverage giving him even more of an advantage because he is usually so much stronger than the man across from him. On tape, Humphrey is very effective as a run blocker and he generates a lot of strength from his lower body, which allows him to finish blocks with authority. – Greg Powers
