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

Stoops' son, Drake, announced in a Twitter post that he is committing to the program as a preferred walk-on, which gives him a spot on the team's roster but not a scholarship.

His dad is former OU head coach Bob Stoops, and Drake will continue the Stoops line with the Sooners.

North three-star wide receiver Drake Stoops is staying home to play for the Sooners. The younger Stoops just finished his senior season at Norman North and put up some great numbers: 1,093 yards and 15 touchdowns in just 10 games.
