NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma bolstered its reputation as an attractive destination for offensive talent when former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts transferred there last week.
The Sooners believe they must become a preferred landing spot for top defensive talent, too, if they hope to break through and challenge Alabama and Clemson for national supremacy.
That's one of the top priorities for new defensive coordinator Alex Grinch, who was introduced to the media on Sunday. He said Oklahoma had already gotten things started before he arrived with a 2019 recruiting class that includes six four-star signees, according to 247Sports.
