Stoops is excited about this cl****. Excited about the # of in state kids. Addressed some major needs 7 guys for 4 positions up front. Quincy Russell is expected to present a immediate impact. In the secondary with the 4 we have "we'll see if we add to that at the end of the day"
On Cody Thomas: Adamant he wants to play football unless he gets selected unreasonably high. We believe he'll play here. Cody will play baseball here and we'll go watch him in the spring
On WR: Cannon tested well already on campus. Smallwood is strong. KJ Young and Bennet nice slot guys with great hands
On OL. High on John and Savage. Savage is so phyiscial inside. Daimler reminds them of Lane
Keith Ford: Exceptional RB, great year, can catch the ball out of the back field
Punter: One of the best jucos in the country. No one gets excited about the punter until you need a good one next year
If you do lose Thomas: For the time being we'd be fine. He'll be here don't want to speculate on that.
Cody has similar release and arm as Sam. Just a athlete. Not as tall as Sam
Asked about Cody and baseball: We'll make the schedule work He'll have plenty of time devoted to the football in the old era it'll be different but we can only spend so much time with him anyway in the spring
On TE: Not in a postion where we are going to play 2-3 at a time. Likes the guys on campus. TE will be emphasized this year
Replacing Millard: Constantly looking but there isn't a lot like him
On DT: They have to be able to run and get pentetration. Love the 4 guys we got good size and speed
Jordan Evans: Projects at a****if he grows into a DE thats fine. We want to see where he grows into. Great athlete
Recruiting Jordan similar to recruiting Dan Cody you didn't know where Dan was going to play at first
Will give him a shot at returning kicks (kinda a joke)
Recruiting different: Its different cause of the media but its still pretty much the same
Asked about his twitter: Restricted to recruits only you guys aren't getting on You gotta reach the recruits. I won't do it publicly.
Dominque really athletic kid who can tackle.
Asked about QB job: "We're off recruiting" ha
Asked about Savage: Really physical kid. Huge asked about Shead and surgery and said "we don't think its going that direction .He's matured as person and player since going to Juco
Sees the 2014 Oklahoma cl**** being very strong
Stanvon is a CB with WR ball skills reminds us Colvin. KJ Young is a wr but he could play DB if we wanted
DJ Ward: Looks in excellent shape running, just waiting for the NCAA to clear him (The multiple hs transfers is the hold ujp)
Asked about recruiting and changes in scheme: We told them we always tweak things, we'll look more at changes in the next month
Asked about emphasis on factors: Only difference now is having tolook at sophomore and juniora and getting into contact earlier. Thats the only difference in how we recruit
Asked about a Early Signing period: Only agree with one is if its around the Juco signing day (Mid January) so all the kids could be sure to get all their visits in
Asked about recruiting budget: "Have to spend (within NCAA rules) to do what you can
Asked about NCAA changes: If it happens OU will have a personell department and we'll take advantage of it. Might hire Switzer to come help HA any member of the faculty would be able to contact a recruit
Asked about diminishing returns of all that contact: Its something to keep in mind
Asked about Quality of the cl****: Compares really well with previous cl****
Asked about SEC: Been a lot of hot teams year in and year out
He is looking forward to the QB derby. We wish Drew well It'll be fun Bell,Knight Thompson
Wont speculate on coaching staffs before spring ball
Any scenario where Cody can get in on the derby: He has the ability
T-Minus 82 Minutes
OK so Allen is gone. Only 3 QB's for spring ball or are there walk-ons? You need more than 3 to give everybody reps.
On TJ, think he just wants to visit the war buzzards they can tell him over the phone if his classes transfer or not. Also didn't his team make sign with a $ec school? I am sure they didn't take the same classes but if he was able to get in I am sure TJ can. Can't wait till Moore signs with OU..
Not Safe For Work:

Switzer recruiting coordinator.Asked about NCAA changes: If it happens OU will have a personell department and we'll take advantage of it. Might hire Switzer to come help HA any member of the faculty would be able to contact a recruit
So far today I've heard coaches compare Alexander to Lehman and Evans to Cody. I would love for this to be true, but we have had the Roy Williams comparisons for years with only Jefferson being close to that billing. I would say that this was one damn good recruiting cl**** if those two live up to that billing.
Wait, Millard is gone?
15 minutes until the Moore announcement
Looks like Huggins double signed (TrVa)just in case he doesn't qualify
Kirk Herbstreet (Sp?) makes a good point on espn.
media does not give the kids that commit early and stand by their word much credit. instead they showcase the kids that seek attention, decommit, etc. the former are kids that get rolled in the ticker at the bottom of the screen while the later gets the interviews, etc.
lets do this
