The newcomers Stoops didn't mention were quarterback Cody Thomas, offensive tackle Christian Daimler, defensive lineman Matt Romar and receivers Jordan Smallwood and K.J. Young.
Asked if immediate playing time for newcomers is a good recruiting tool, Stoops said, “I don't know, we always want them to play early. I will say this is really one of our better classes overall.”
