After signing four-star defensive end Reggie Grimes II and four-star defensive back Joshua Eaton on Wednesday's national signing day, the Sooners' 2020 recruiting cycle has officially come to a close.

Since Lincoln Riley's promotion to head coach in June of 2017, Oklahoma has been among the nation's best recruiting programs. Per, the Sooners' 2018 class ranked 9th nationally and their 2019 class was 6th. 

However, the 2020 class is the lowest ranked class in Riley's tenure as head coach.

Here's how the Sooners' 2020 class ranks nationally:

Rivals: 15th

247: 11th

ESPN: 10th

Overall, the Sooners signed 23 prospects, 12 of which were four-stars and 11 were three-stars according to Rivals.

The Sooners ranked second in the Big 12 behind Texas, which ranks 13th on Rivals. Some of the highlights on the class include Grimes, one of the nation's top defensive ends, four-star wide receiver Marvin Mims, who broke records in the state of Texas and five four-star offensive lineman.
