OU football: OU's recruiting class ranks No. 29 in the country by Rivals

That's far off the lofty classes that coach Bob Stoops have regularly put together during his time in Norman, but there are a few prospects in the 17 current commits that give the Sooners hope for the future.

Wide receivers

Mead: 6-5, 179, Tulsa Union

Todd: 6-5, 205, La Mirada, Calif.

The pair of tall, athletic receiver commits have helped further cement Jay Norvell's status as one of the staff's top recruiters. The Sooners have started looking at taller receivers in recent years, and this pair has a chance to make a big impact down the road. Todd also represents a continuation of OU's commitment to recruiting in California.

Tay Evans

Linebacker, 6-3, 202, Allen, Texas

Evans is a fine prospect, and his younger brother has already committed to the Sooners for the 2015 class. Even more important, though, is what Evans represents. The Sooners are laying down the foundation for recruiting success at one of the most successful programs in Texas. Even though Evans already had OU connections with his father, Bobby Joe, being a Sooners basketball alum, the possibility of a recruiting pipeline to Allen certainly bodes well for the Sooners.
