In the five recruiting classes from 2006-2010, we signed a total of 26 “4*” recruits. That included guys like:

- Joe Randle,
- Justin Gilbert,
- Shaun Lewis,
- Jeremy Smith,
- Malcom Murray,
- Brandon Webb,
- Daytawion Lowe,
- Kye Staley,
- Markelle Brown
- Victor Johnson
- Perrish Cox.

In 2011, we won the Big-12.

In the ten recruiting classes since 2010, we’ve signed a total of just 24 “4*” recruits. And while we’ve been good for most of those years, we haven’t won the Big-12.

For 2020, looks like we'll have the possibility of 8 guys on the squad who came in as 4* recruits.

QB – Spencer Sanders, Shane Illingsworth
RB – Chuba Hubbard, Deondrick Glass
WR – Tylan Wallace, LC Greenwood, CJ Moore
DB – Michael Flanagan

While that is a nice core, it doesn't seem we have been able to have the success in recruiting defensive players like we did earlier when we were competing more strongly for the Conference title. And I think the last 4* impact OL we signed was probably Brandon Webb in the 2009 class, a decade ago.

(IMHO)
It’s all about recruiting…. Until we can sign better recruits, we’ll be good but not win Championships. I really hope we can start putting together stronger recruiting classes. If there is one criticism I might have of Gundy, I'd say he's not recruiting as successfully now as he was during the first half of his tenure at OSU. I hope that improves.

Since this has nothing to do with discussion of FUTURE recruits, only discussion of we already have on campus, I wish you would put this back on the main board where I posted it originally.

Any chance you could do a year to year breakdown on that. The reason I ask is that I believe that our recruiting fell off drastically due to the sports illustrated hit piece (used as negative recruiting against us), and that we have only started to overcome that in the last few years. Thus looking at the last decade as a whole may not provide an accurate picture.

Wish someone would write a magazine piece on how much Thayer Evans sucks

McBean was a Jr College 5*. He was not 5* in HS. We signed another Jr College DT before but he didn't show up. Forgot the name, but he was a good recruiting laugh back then.

The Athletic reranked the 2016 recruiting classes. We came in at 19. I think this class is probably what Gundy's dream. If every class turned out like this, we'd have a lot less threads about recruiting results and stars. OU was 18th and TAMU was 20th.

19. Oklahoma State
Adjusted average: 2.70
Hit rate: 85%
Class rank in 2016: 45th
Four-year record: 35-17
Top signees: RB Justice Hill, CB A.J. Green, OL Teven Jenkins, WR Dillon Stoner, LB Amen Ogbongbemiga

This was actually Oklahoma State’s lowest-ranked recruiting class of the decade, according to the 247Sports Composite team rankings. It doesn’t seem too bad today. This class did not experience much attrition and produced a long list of valuable contributors. Hill quickly emerged as one of the best players in the Big 12 and was the gem of a strong in-state class, and the Cowboys found lots of key players on defense in this group including Green, Ogbongbemiga, Calvin Bundage, DeQuinton Osborne and Rodarius Williams. And if they hadn’t signed Ogbongbemiga out of Canada, the Cowboys could have missed out on Chuba Hubbard.

Best of all, these guys aren’t done yet. Eight or more of these signees will be senior starters on a 2020 squad that’s aiming for a Big 12 title.

I think Gundy is going for guys that are smart with good dental habits.

It's strange that the year we won the Big12 and came within 8 inches of a National Championship appearance is also the year that marks a down turn in the number of highly touted recruit signings.

The best players are those of high character that will contribute to the team on and off the field. That position themselves not just for personal success but also position himself for others to be successful as well.
