Drake Stoops announces plans to join Sooners as preferred walk-on

Saturday, 13 Jan, 2018

The Stoops name has become synonymous with Oklahoma football since Bob Stoops got the head coaching job with the Sooners prior to the 1999 season and won a national title just one year later.

Stoops was ranked a three-star wide receiver recruit at Norman North High School and had offers from Iowa, Memphis and OH, but will play at OU as a preferred walk-on.

Drake Stoops is a 5-11, 175-pouond wide receiver from Norman North High School.

He chose the Sooners over offers from Air Force, Arkansas State, Memphis, Ohio, Western Kentucky, Youngstown State and Iowa, his father's alma mater.

There is also precedent for being an impact player as an OU walk-on from Norman North.

Stoops was a two-time member of The Oklahoman's All-State first team. In his senior season, Stoops recorded 66 receptions for a total of 1,093 yards and 15 touchdowns.
