With national letter-of-intent signing day coming up on Wednesday, February 4, it's instructive to not get too excited about the current signing class for the Sooners and Cowboys football teams.
Not every class turns out to be as good as the coaches claim it is, and one look no further than OU's class in 2011 to see how things can change in four seasons.
The Sooners signed just 17 players in the 2011 signing class, and only six made it through their entire careers at OU.
Oklahoma State's class was more productive, but the Cowboys didn't have an All-American level player either in their 2011 class.
