Oklahoma Recruiting: Nationwide Success

National Signing Day is here and the crew at Sooners Illustrated has you covered. Throughout the day, we will bring you a variety of material about the upcoming Sooner class. Here is a quick snap shot on how Oklahoma did well nationally to make up the 2010 class.

2010 Oklahoma Sooners Recruiting Class by State

With the haul the Sooners got from the West, this was definitely worth mention. All three hail from the San Diego area and are all good friends despite rivalries. Headlining the Cali crew is five-star running back Brennan Clay (5-11, 190) from Scripps Ranch. He rushed for over 2,000 yards and 27 touchdowns this past season. Playmaker and wide receiver Kenny Stills (6-1, 175) will line up for the Sooners after a successful high school career at La Costa Canyon High. Stills is the all-time leading receiver in the San Diego section. Joining Stills the day of the commitment was Eastlake defensive back Tony Jefferson (6-0, 210) who will look to contribute early as well.

Just North, Oklahoma came through and took some solid athletes out of Jayhawk country. Two Scout.com five stars will wear the crimson with quarterback Blake Bell (6-6, 215) from Bishop Carroll being the first to make the call from the state. Bell had huge numbers with more than 3,900 yards of offense and 54 total touchdowns. From Bishop Miege, Justin McCay (6-4, 205) will be a future target for Bell in the future. On defense, Geneo Grissom (6-4, 255) from Hutchinson will play the defensive end position. Grissom was the latest edition to the Sooner class.

Naturally, a program will want to make sure and get the best prospects out of its own state. And for the Sooners, there is a nice crew of players who will stay home. Of the five who will line up for the Sooners next season, offensive lineman Bronson Irwin (6-5, 315) from Mustang HS is one to keep an eye on. With the need for added depth on the line, Irwin could end up playing as a true freshman. Irwin is already enrolled at Oklahoma. 

At Southmoore High, Oklahoma landed a pair in tight end Austin Haywood (6-5, 240) and athlete Julian Wilson (6-3, 180). Wilson is slated to line up in the secondary and he will be joined with Aaron Colvin (5-11, 175) from Owasso.
In the ‘Show Me State,' Oklahoma found athlete Trey Millard (6-2, 245) from Rock Bridge. Millard will be used a tight end and/or the H-back type player.

Sooners got the No. 20 in the country on the Scout.com rankings from the state of Florida. Roy Finch (5-7, 180) from Niceville HS will have the opportunity to play multiple offensive skilled positions for Oklahoma.

Year in and year out, Oklahoma has success in the Lone Star State. That is evident seeing that 16 of the 29 commitments are from Texas. On offense, wide receiver Sheldon McClain (6-2.5, 180) from Cibolo Steele is getting a head start and has already enrolled to Oklahoma. McClain is in the process of rehabbing his knee after missing a good portion of his senior season. Also, offense Rockwall-Heath center Austin Woods (6-5, 295) is an early enrollee.
