Sooner4OU Commentary: It is always interesting to see another person/sites ranking and evaluations of recruits. In this particluar article SoonerScoop.com takesa look at the departing class of 2012 and re-ranks them based on their contribution and output. I tend to agree with most of the re-rankings, except the one regarding DeMontre Hurst. I believe his was a big time contributor and his somehwta lackluster senior season was the result of being asked to play in a scheme that did not highlight his strong skills and exposed the soft underbelly of our defense. What do you think of the re-rankings?
Article Excerpt: Things may not have always been pretty for the group departing in the class of 2012 in spite of a racuous start including, for some, a trip to the National Championship game following the 2008 season, and then saw the Sooners win their first BCS bowl in nearly a decade that joined a Big 12 title in 2010. However, for every inch of success disappointment was visited upon them two-fold with the injury plagued 2009 season along with the 2011 and 2012 seasons that saw Oklahoma put together solid campaigns but fell short of the preseason goals of not only fans but the team itself. That being said, the Sooners Cotton bowl defeat saw the completion of careers for no fewer than 14 players who were multi-year starters during their 40 wins over the last four years.
NOTE: Any player that finished out his collegiate career will be given at least two stars, for that in and of itself is a significant accomplishment that not every player achieves. Also included are any early entrants into the NFL draft.
