RECRUITING: Huggins makes it official

Conway, S.C. wide receiever Eric Huggins became the Sooners' second commitment for the class of 2005 on Friday.

After month's of speculation, Conway, S.C. wide receiver Eric Huggins has made his decision official.

The 6-foot-4 prospect, who is expected to be one of the top five wide receivers in the country when the rankings come out later this summer, told James Hale of this afternoon that he has committed to Oklahoma.

"I just wanted to go ahead and get it over with," said Huggins, who was also offered by Florida, Miami, Michigan, Tennessee, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Miami. "I knew as soon as I left there that was where I wanted to go."

"I think Eric's best football is ahead of him," said Conway head coach Chuck Jordan. "I've seen him develop so much in the last year it's unbelievable. I think you're going to see him get better once he gets on campus."
