Addison Gumbs is a major cog in the Sooners class of 2017, and I would compare his skill set to one Caleb Kelly (yeah Gumbs is that good). With Gumbs having the ability go through spring practice and acclimate to college life, I fully expect him to make an impact early for the Sooners.
Gumbs had thought to be giving a long look to both UCLA and Texas A&M, leading up to his early enrollment, but now Sooner fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief.
The Sooners have 12 players that have enrolled early and will be a part of spring practice.
