Revisiting The Class Of 2004

New, 6 comments

With Oklahoma welcoming a new recruiting class this week I thought it would be fun to go back in time and check out what happened to the class of 2004. If you remember, that class included current NFL All-Pros, players involved in controversy and a handful of guys who finished their careers in 2008 with three consecutive Big 12 Championships.
