Buddy Hield Commits to Oklahoma

From the start, Lon Kruger and his staff at Oklahoma, knew Buddy Hield (Sunrise Christian Academy, KS) was a must get in the class of 2012.

Hield blew up on the summer circuit playing with Kansas commit Perry Ellis. As he continued to blow up, his scholarship list did as well but after two months of soaking in the college interest, Hield finally made his decision.

Kruger and his staff beat out the rumored favorite Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska for Hield's services.

His familiarity with the staff played a big part and also the fact that the Sooners were the first high-major to offer. "[I picked Oklahoma] because I like the coaching staff and the style of play," Hield said.

Hield is the lone commit in Oklahoma's 2012 recruiting class but it's certainly a great start for the new staff.

Hield had a monster summer and could be an instant impact player for the Sooners. Kruger pulled in his first big-time recruit and should continue his recruiting success.
