2018 WR Drake Stoops, the son of former Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops, has announced his commitment to OU. Stoops will be a preferred walk-on in Norman.
Stoops was an all-state receiver at Norman North High School, where he totaled at least 1,000 yards and at least 15 touchdowns in both his junior and senior seasons. He received scholarship offers from Iowa, Ohio, Arkansas State, Memphis, Western Kentucky, SMU and others. He also had preferred walk-on offers from a number of schools, but the temptation to stay home and play for the school at which his father coached won out.
Although he will not be on scholarship, Stoops has a skill set that will give him an opportunity to carve out a role in Oklahoma’s offense.
