the number of spots that will be open per position due to graduation:
pos: (number of players at said position bob stoops said he wants) - (number of players that will still have eligibility after the seniors graduate) = (number of spots open)
qb: 4 - 3 = 1
wr: 14 - 7 = 7
rb: 6 - 4 = 2
te/fb: 4 - 2 = 2
ol: 16 - 14 = 2
dl: 12.5 - 10 = 2.5
lb: 10.5 - 10 = 0.5
db: 15 - 13 = 2
k/p: 2 - 1 = 1
so, that currently gives ou a total of 19 open spots for this class. throwing in normal attrition (nfl/injury/trouble/quit/etc...), and 24-25 is reasonable. 27 is possible, but it's really hard to say at this point. right around a month from now we'll know a lot more on the number of open spots.
one thing that stands out to me is the number of seemingly open wr spots. there's no way they sign 7 wrs in one class. i think the max number of quality wrs they could get in one recruiting cycle would be 5. some pwo wrs 'bout to get some free schoolin'!
Just like we are seeing Cooks transform the talent level for the secondary, Simmons and Gundy are doing for WR. Gonna be a huge talent infusion at both those positions over the next couple of classes although Simmons first class wasnt bad at all.
with how prolific ou has been at throwing the ball under stoops, it still amazes me how hard it has seemed for ou to land highly thought of wrs.
but, ya, it wouldn't hurt for shep to do something big this year.
Marquis Hayes (as posted above) has big time news coming at 1pm. seeing as how he's taking an official visit today and what other #Soonersquad17 kids are tweeting, I'd say he's about to commit to us! Get ready!
We have 79 players on scholarship now
Soonersports.com roster has a somewhat of an update but they don't have Walk on Juco WR Reggie Turner on there yet.
1. Charles Walker is most likely going pro
2. Jordan Thomas
3. Steven Parker
4. Baker Mayfield
5 . Samaje Perine
6. Joe Mixon hopefully he stays another year
7. William Johnson
8. Gabriel Campbell could transfer next year
9. Depending if Johncarlo Valentin makes it in
10. So after all that we lose 15 SRs on scholarship so that could make 27.
There it is. BOOM! Another addition to the already stellar class.
I approve this thread.
Need to get some highly rated OL. Ohio state has two 5* ol. Hard to beat teams when you can't get a push.

Another example is Eric Striker vs Alabama a few years ago.
Edit: Yep, I was right. He finished a phenomenal 11/33.
Yes Clemson has an elite offensive line but versus NC ... it was by no way a "steam rolling".
My point was more pointing to the future not what certain teams did last year. Has Bama has had high rankings the last several years? Yes, and we beat them. Yet how many nc do they have vs ou in last decade?
I used to think the problem was the hbc, now I'm thinking it it's more recruiting. Ss17 it's great but we need highly coveted line players to go with the skill.

anyone here worried about Tre Brown visiting Florida and FSU?
We get Okudah, & Brown is SOLID!
Campbell almost enlisted...nothing to do with transferring. It would be a toss up really. His family prob talked him into giving it one more year. If he doesn't see the field then he could very well rethink that decision
By the time February 2017 rolls around ^THIS^ could be the case.
The official pants of the members of soonersquad17. You can't drive a caprice without capris.
