Sooners Pick Up Pair Of Commitments


Athlete Trey Franks and defensive back James Haynes became the 17th and 18th commitments for Oklahoma’s 2010 recruiting class. They are from West Orange Stark High School, TX and both posses blazing speed.


Franks stands at 5-9 and weighs 172 lbs and runs a 4.4 forty. He’s listed as a three-star athlete by Rivals and while he’ll most likely be playing the slot position it isn’t out of the question to see him on the defensive side of the ball for the Sooners. Last season he averaged 17.8 yards per reception as a junior. Recruited by Jay Norvell, Trey Franks turned down scholarship offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas A&M and Texas Tech to come play for Oklahoma.


James Haynes is a 6-1, 181 pound safety who runs a 4.36 forty, like Franks he posses the ability to play both sides of the ball. At  OU he’ll most likely be playing on the defensive side of the ball but also like his teammate he was impressive when given the opportunity to play offense. Haynes carried the ball 16 times for 186 yards (11.6 ypc) and hauled in 14 passed for 166 yards (11.9 ypc) as a junior. Rivals has him listed as a four-star recruit and led by Bobby Jack Wright the Sooners beat out a host of SEC and Big 12 schools, including Florida, Missouri and Texas A&M – nine in all) for his services.


The 2010 recruiting class initially looked top heavy with offense recruits but has now balanced out with the talent evenly distributed among both the offensive and defensive units.
