If you asked Oklahoma football fans about the strength of this year's recruiting class, you'd probably get a variety of opinions.
Regardless, national signing day is behind us. Oklahoma ended up with a class of 24 players. The additions cover almost every position area. The Sooners also solidified key areas by adding seven defensive linemen and five defensive backs.
We have yet to see these players in spring camp, but several figure to be immediately relevant. In fact, multiple players appear to be in line for starting jobs come fall.
Of course, a lot can change between now and Oklahoma's season debut against Louisiana-Monroe on Aug. 31. But here are three commits who should be starters when the Sooners open the 2013 season. Additional players could be immediate starters, but the following players appear to have the best prospects.
(Note: Multiple JUCO commits, including Quincy Russell and Jed Barnett, could start immediately. However, since they are not freshmen, this article will not highlight them.)
