Running Back U in 2011 for the state of Oklahoma
At the beginning of last season, I turned to Scott Wright and said, ‘can you believe how good this RB class is going to be next year?’
Nearly 12 months later and nothing has changed. In fact, if anything, it’s gotten even better and even deeper. Rivals.com released position rankings this week, and it’s no shock that Oklahoma has three of the top 30 RBs in the nation.
It starts with Heritage Hall’s Barry J. Sanders, ranked ninth. Jenks stud Alex Ross (committed to OU) is No. 16 and Norman’s workhorse Donovan Roberts (committed to Arkansas) is No. 25.
Simply depends on what recruiting service you use when it comes to Ross and Sanders. Rivals likes Sanders. ESPN likes Ross. Heck, you’re not wrong with either guy.
But as the biggest Roberts booster around, it put a smile on my face to see Roberts crack the top 30. One thing I’ll say for Roberts is he’s ready right now to play college. His style of running, his body type, he could play for the Hogs right now.
The list stopped at 30, but how many more can you think of that would also be deserving? Anadarko’s Sheldon Wilson has to be up there. Also gotta find a place for Southmoore’s Andrew Long and Midwest City’s James Flanders.
