Meet Oklahoma Football’s 2016 Class: National Signing Day Recap

Update: Oklahoma wasn't quite done when Bob Stoops held his National Signing Day press conference earlier. The Sooners put a cherry on top of their class in the form of five-star linebacker Caleb Kelly, who chose the Sooners over Notre Dame and Oregon about an hour ago.

According to 247Sports, Oklahoma's class jumps from 23rd to 20th nationally, and fourth to third in the Big 12.

Earlier: Oklahoma only had 11 senior graduating, so the 2016 recruiting class was never going to be a huge one for OU, in terms of numbers, but there is plenty of quality in the 18-person class. Seven of Oklahoma's 18 signees are four star players, per 247Sports, which ranks the class No. 23 nationally.

Bob Stoops' Twitter account has been tweeting out cool graphics for each player as they sent in their National Letters of Intent. Here is your 2016 Oklahoma Sooners recruiting class:

One member of OU's class has not signed yet. On Monday, four-star linebacker Bryce Youngquist tweeted a note that he would forego signing today for personal reasons, but says he is still committed to the Sooners.
