TULSA, OK -- TU football coach Todd Graham announced today the signing of 25 student-athletes to national letters of intent, including three junior college transfers and 22 high school
seniors.

The Hurricane signed 13 players who earned a three-star rating by Rivals.com and one four-star rated student-athlete.

Among the prep seniors, three have already enrolled at The University of Tulsa, including Rivals.com four-star quarterback Shavodrick Beaver and two of the top seniors in the state of Oklahoma, receiver Brett Davis and linebacker Cody Wilson.

"We're very, very excited about this recruiting class," said Graham. "We think that this class, from top to bottom, is by far the most talented, the most explosive, the fastest and the biggest that we've signed since we've been here.

"It takes our recruiting to a new level and a place we haven't been since I've been a part of
the program over the last six years."
