Bob Stoops Welcomes 27-Member Signing Class

University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops announced his program’s 2017 recruiting class Wednesday, a 27-member group that ranked among the top five nationally by Rivals and Scout as of Wednesday morning and one that Stoops says has the potential to be among his best ever.

OU’s class, dubbed #SoonerSquad17, is comprised of 25 high schoolers and two junior college players, and features signees from nine states. Ten position groups are represented.

Twenty of the 27 signees — by far the most among Big 12 programs — are rated as four-star prospects or higher on a five-star scale by recruiting services 247Sports, ESPN, Rivals or Scout. The other seven are three-star recruits.

“On paper, this might be one of the top two or three classes we’ve had since I’ve been here,” said Stoops, who has won 10 Big 12 titles in his 18 years at OU. “It’s a really hungry group, and a deep class that covers all of our positions in a really positive way.
