ESPNU has the Sooners' class ranked No. 20 and many schools would kill for a class like OU has. They have just 13 commitments, but the class has solid quality and is led by RB Keith Ford.
Yet, the Sooners are doing worse than what they should be. This class is smaller than usual, and it lacks the dominant group of prospects that OU frequently lures to Norman.
Being ranked 20th is fine, but this is Oklahoma. It should be a top 10 program in recruiting just going by their prestige let alone actually working for prospects.
