Over the course of the signing period, the Oklahoma Sooners put a premium on the offensive linemen as well as the defensive side of the ball. That quickly became apparent as the early signing period opened season for the first time in college football history. Of the 19 early signees, only four failed to meet the aforementioned criteria. However, many expected Lincoln Riley to add to the class on National Signing Day.
As expected, three other names joined the 2018 class by submitting a signed letter of intent to play at the University of Oklahoma. The three “late” additions are:
Three Star TE Brayden Willis
Four Star OLB DeShaun White
Four Star DT Michael Thompson
Bringing the 2018 Class up to a total of 22 signed players, the Oklahoma Sooners rank No. 7 overall — tied with the Clemson Tigers. Despite landing inside the top ten, the crimson and cream is not the highest ranked 2018 class in the Big 12. That title belongs to the Texas Longhorns who reeled in 27 recruits.
We’ll have to see the on-the-field product before tipping our hat to Tom Herman and his staff.
