 NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Here's a sign of how far Jeff Capel has come in building his program at Oklahoma.
As the Sooners prepare to move on after Blake Griffin became the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NBA draft, Capel has three more McDonald's All-Americans on his roster to try to build on back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances.
Oklahoma was ranked 17th in The Associated Press preseason poll, which was released Thursday.
Capel credits Griffin for helping with a breakthrough in recruiting, showing prep prospects that they can come to Oklahoma and become a top NBA draft pick, the college player of the year and perhaps even the face of college basketball.
