The Oklahoma Sooners men’s basketball team began assembling talent for its 2023-24 team as the NCAA’s early-signing period opened on Wednesday.
The Sooners, led by second-year coach Porter Moser, is coming off a 2021-22 in which it just missed the NCAA Tournament and accepted a No. 1 seed in the NIT Postseason Tournament. The Sooners were eliminated in the second round in a loss to St. Bonaventure.
Before the signing period, the Sooners had just one commitment — forward Jacolb Cole, who plays at Link Academy in Branson, Mo. The Sooners announced his signing on Friday.
Oklahoma’s 2023 recruiting class is below. Players who confirmed as signed are noted below. The list below also includes the Sooners’ season-opening roster.
The early-signing window closes on Nov. 16.
