Headliners in the 2012 class for the Sooners are: Running back Alex Ross (Jenks, OK), who ranks No. 38 nationally; Taylor McNamara (San Diego, CA), the No. 2 tight end in the nation; Ty Darlington (Apopka, FL), the No. 1 offensive center in the nation; John Michael Mcgee (Texarkana, TX), the No. 1 offensive guard in the nation.
However, what might be even more impressive than the aforementioned group of players is the group of wide receiver recruits the Sooners have managed to pull in.
The Sooners currently have three four-star wide receiver commits (Durron Neal, Sterling Shepard and Derrick Woods), and they're still in the mix for the nation's top wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.
Now throw in Trey Metoyer, the Sooners first five-star wide receiver recruit under head coach Bob Stoops, and the wide receiving core is starting to look pretty nasty.
Metoyer was actually the Sooners' flagship recruit in 2011, as well, but due to academic problems, Metoyer elected to enroll at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia to get his grades corrected before officially enrolling at Oklahoma.
Metoyer will be on campus for the spring semester, which should give him plenty of time to get caught up on the offense and form a bond with quarterback Landry Jones.
