Stewart Mandel needs to read more about recruiting

Mandel writes “It’s true: OU’s quarterback stable right now borders on disastrous. None of the three contenders — redshirt freshman Sam Bradford, juco transfer Joey Hazle and true freshman Keith Nichol — were highly recruited elsewhere (though Nichol originally committed to Michigan State).”

Keith Nichol was ranked 6th best Dual Thread QB by Rivals

Stewart writes, “Sure, they may start every season in the top 10, but I get the sense not too many people outside the great state of Oklahoma actually believe them to be capable of hanging in USC/LSU/Texas/Florida territory.”

The might Texas Territory? Didn’t we win the Big 12 last year? Didn’t we win the Big 12 2004? 2002?

Florida? yup the won with Urban, last year. Where do they place this decade?

    And we beat out Michigan for Hazle’s services. Really, only Sam Bradford amongst the three could be termed unheralded. He was a 3-star recruit according to Rivals and the best other program he had an offer from was Texas A&M.
