Screen Shot 2013-11-25 at 3.10.27 PM Stoops took the stage during today's big press conference and for the first time, was able to talk about the five 2014 players who have signed their financial aid agreements and will enroll in January. Here's what he had to say about Dorian Hendrix, Mikel Horton, Thaddeus Snodgrass, TV Williams, and Drew Barker: Photo via Hendrix's Twitter DORIAN HENDRIX Linebacker, Huber Heights, Ohio "I think he was my first commit, he was my first commit in this 2014 class, Dorian Hendrix. Dorian is a linebacker and a very good football player." Photo via ESPN MIKEL HORTON Running back, West Chester, Ohio "Unbelievable player, big physical running back, he's the whole package. He's got agility, he's got strength, he's got the size that we need to compete in this league." Photo via ESPN THADDEUS SNODGRASS Wide receiver, Springfield, Ohio "Big strong wide receiver, great player, great in the classroom, so we're excited about Thaddeus." Photo via ESPN TV WILLIAMS Wide receiver, McKinney, Texas "Good to branch out and get in the Dallas area and sign a player from there. TV is a very electric guy, an inside receiver, and we're very excited about TV." Photo via ESPN DREW BARKER Quarterback, Hebron, Kentucky "Last but not least, a guy who's very important to us and this program because he's one of the best players in the state and we all know how important it is lock down your own state and to start the recruiting within your state. This guy has been rock sold, he's a tremendous leader, he's a heck of a player, he's a national recruit, he's an Elite 11 quarterback and he's tough as nails, but the thing I love about him most is his leadership." Stoops on all five early enrollees: "We're excited, as I said before, when we're gonna build this program, it starts with guys like that. That's a great five guys that we're able to touch on right now that will enroll in January. There's a whole slew of guys that will join these five that will be here either in January or September and believe me, we're very happy to be here and optimistic about the future. We're very excited about this last game." On the Tennessee game: "We're going out to practice today, this team will show a lot of fight and make you all proud and we're going to go out and give everything we've got in this last game."
