Here's a sign of how far Jeff Capel has come in building his program at Oklahoma.
As the Sooners prepare to move on after Blake Griffin became the
No. 1 overall pick in this year's NBA draft, Capel has three more
McDonald's All-Americans on his roster to try to build on
back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances.
Oklahoma was ranked 17th in The Associated Press' preseason
poll, which was released Thursday.
Capel credits Griffin for helping with his breakthrough in
recruiting, showing high-school prospects that they can come to
Oklahoma and become a top NBA draft pick, the college player of the
year and perhaps even the face of college basketball.
