School: Lancaster (Texas) High School

Position: Cornerback

Ht./Wt.: 5-11/170

Chose OU over: Oklahoma State, Miami, Arizona, Tennessee

Where he fits on the depth chart: Hurst, a signing day steal for the Sooners, gives OU three corners in this class. One or two of those players could factor in a backup role or on special teams this season.

Long-term impact: Hurst, who boats big-time speed, will be given the chance to start at corner when Brian Jackson and later Dom Franks both graduate. While he’ll have plenty of competition, cornerbacks are at a premium in the pass-happy Big 12.
