Stoops, Oklahoma start recruiting the class of 2022

It’s seems like recruiting is starting earlier and earlier. It’s not yet August and almost half of the top 100 players in the country are already pledged a verbal commitment for next year.

In fact, just last summer, Lane Kiffin received a verbal commitment from a 13-year old.

But one thing that you don’t see all that often these days is a high school prospect committing to the home-state university that he’s dreamed about playing for his entire life.

It still happens, but not like in the old days.

Oklahoma University, however, has started a campaign that could pay off next decade. Oklahoma has started the Sooner Jr. youth education initiative with the theme of, “I’m gonna be a Sooner Someday.”

The same producers of The Lion King and Curious George have created a new video that could make Bob Stoops’ recruiting efforts a little easier next decade.
