Stoops talks recruiting philosophy

NORMAN, Okla. -- There were some questions about Oklahoma's recruiting class in 2012. Some restlessness among the OU faithful about the way the Sooners conducted their business.

That was only a harbinger of things to come as few OU classes under coach Bob Stoops have been as scrutinized as the Sooners' Class of 2013.

OU coaches have practiced a patient, methodical and honest approach. It has led to some big-time hits but also some huge misses. The entire time, though, the Sooners have stayed consistent.
