With questions surrounding the quarterbacks of 2013, the focus of OU football recruiting has been in finding quarterbacks to re-stock the cupboard. One of the sought after quarterbacks was Edmond Santa Fe signal caller Justice Hansen. During the Oklahoma football Spring Game on April 13, the Sooners finally got their answer.
Hansen said he planned to commit to OU but wanted to wait until the Spring Game on Saturday to make his announcement. Right before the Spring Game started, Hansen told the OU football recruiting personnel that he was choosing the Oklahoma Sooners to be his home in 2014.
Hansen will be a senior at Edmond Santa Fe and will graduate from high school in December, meaning he can start at OU in the spring semester of 2014. That means that Sooners’ fans can see him in action for the first time at the Oklahoma football Spring Game in 2014.
Justice Hansen, whose dad Dusty Hansen played baseball at OU in the ’90s, is the right size for a major college football quarterback (6-3, 200 pounds). He threw for 3,079 yards and 36 touchdowns as a junior. He also ran for 773 yards and 14 more touchdowns on the ground making him a great all-purpose weapon.
OU football recruiting chose to target Justice Hansen over fellow in-state quarterbacks David Cornwell (Norman North) and Coleman Key (Broken Arrow).
