The 2012 recruiting class is old news, right? These players signed in January and most, if not all, have somewhat of an idea of the role they're going to play with the Sooners this fall.
Like most years, the Sooners had one of the top recruiting classes in the country. Even though the Sooners graduate 20 seniors this season, the talent in their recruiting classes make things seem less scary. Still, what if the Sooners were able to sign just five more guys from that 2012 class that they missed out on?
Sure, the basis that this slideshow is built around is kind of silly. It's completely based on a "what if" notion, meaning that everything has been set in stone—nothing can change. Does this make the information in this article irrelevant? Not necessarily.
The five guys featured in this article would have helped out the Sooners in a huge way, and it's because of the positions they play. Sure, the Sooners are loaded with talent at a lot of different positions, but some major skill positions, such as wide receiver, are rather thin.
So will these five guys play with the Sooners? No, but it's relevant to know how they could have helped given the Sooners' current situation at certain positions.
Still not buying it? OK, well, at least it's fun to think about what the Sooners would have looked like for the next three seasons with these guys wearing Crimson and Cream.
