Which Oklahoma recruiting classes are on the rise?

Oklahoma is one of the top recruiting targets in the country and a big reason why is its offense.

Oklahoma also leads the nation in total offense and rushing offense and is No. 3 in total defense.

The Oklahoma offense has led the nation to a bowl game in three of the last four seasons.

In 2018, Oklahoma scored 757.2 points per game, a new school record and the most ever for an FBS program.

The Sooners also have scored at or above 30 points per contest in each of the past four seasons, the most by a FBS team since the 2011-12 team had 31.8 points per.

Oklahoma has also averaged over 500 yards of offense per game in the past three seasons, second-most in the nation.

Okla has scored 2,500 points, the highest single-season mark for a FCS program in program history.

The school has scored 3,500 or more points in the three seasons since its move from FBS to FCS in 2015.

Oklahomans also have a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback and a Heisman winner in Tyus Bowser.

Bowser led the Sooners to back-to-back bowl games in 2018 and 2019, and he’s earned two Big 12 Championship appearances and a pair of BCS national championships.

Bears quarterback Logan Thomas is a junior and junior college transfer from Oklahoma State.

Thomas is the first quarterback in school history to throw for over 4,000 yards in two consecutive seasons, and the fifth in school memory to throw three touchdowns in a game.

Thomas has been a leader on the team and a member of the Sooner family since he was a redshirt freshman in 2016.

Thomas earned All-Big 12 honors after leading the Cowboys to a 24-10 victory over Missouri on Nov. 1, 2018.

He earned his first career start at quarterback in the bowl game against No. 18 Missouri on Jan. 2, 2019.

Thomas completed 14 of 28 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns as the Cowboys advanced to the Cotton Bowl for the first time in school-record history.

Bowls are held every season at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The game also features Alabama and Notre Dame.

In 2020, Oklahoma defeated Alabama by 23 points in a thriller.

The Cowboys were also undefeated in 2019 and 2016 and won their first two games of the season.

The Cowboys have led the country in rushing in each season since moving to FBS in 2015, and have ranked No: 1 nationally for rushing yards (1,965.3), yards per carry (4.25) and rushing touchdowns (13).

Okla’s defense has allowed only 14.6 points per 100 plays over its last three games.

The defense has also held opponents to a 34.7 field goal percentage.

Bryce Petty, who was the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner, was the 2016 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.

Petty, a former Oklahoma commit, started all 13 games for the Cowboys and was a starter in 2016, leading the team to a 10-1 regular season and the BCS National Championship.

Petty completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 1,066 yards and eight touchdowns.
