ESPN Predicts These 2 Oklahoma Freshmen Could Have A Big Impact

Oklahoma has a number of talented freshman on its roster this year.

Oklahoma signed the No. 8 class in the nation in 2017. Eighteen of the team's 27 new additions ranked as four-star prospects.

This weekend, ESPN named the 10 freshmen in the Big 12 who could have big impacts on their respective teams. Oklahoma had two players on the list.

Center Creed Humphrey and linebacker Kenneth Murray both made the cut.

ESPN on Humphrey:

Coach Bob Stoops called Humphrey the most talented freshman center he's ever coached. Humphrey is already on the Sooners' two-deep and could work his way into playing time for arguably the best offensive line in the country.

ESPN on Murray:

More unheralded than the majority of fellow OU signees, Murray instantly turned heads this spring as one of a dozen Sooners early enrollees. Murray has put himself in position to win a starting role on the inside of the linebacking corps this fall.

Oklahoma is aiming to win a national title this fall. We'll have to see if these newcomers have a major impact on the team's fortunes.
