Default Re: Sell me on "low major" graduate transfers

I think there are a number of things at play here. First, Lon and company likely feel good about the upcoming 2019 recruiting class. They just need some players to bridge some gaps until that class arrives. Second, grad transfers take up a ship for only 1 year instead of 2. Often, grad transfers are better quality than juco kids. Especially at this late juncture. The better juco kids are already tied up. And a big thing that this team lacked last year was leadership and maturity, neither of which would be offered by a high school kid. And most of the better high school kids, just like the better jucos, are already signed. For this upcoming year, grad transfers are the perfect bandaid for OU. And then Lon and his staff need to recruit the 2019 class like crazy.
