Stephen Good can add another accomplishment to the list.
Good gathered scholarship offers from schools such as Georgia, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, and UCLA before making an early commitment to Oklahoma. Now, the 6-foot-5, 290-pounder found out another one of his goals had been achieved early this week when he learned he was going to be named a five-star prospect on Rivals.com.

"It's really exciting," Good said about being named to five-star status. "That's been my goal for a while now. I had kind of heard that I might be ranked there and everything, but I didn't want to let that go to my head. I wanted to keep working to make sure that I did make it, but that I was also getting better."
Since committing to the Sooners, the Paris, Texas lineman says things have been pretty quiet – for the most part.
"When I made my commitment, my family was real excited about it for me," Good said. "Nobody was upset. Everybody around here is a Longhorn fan, so they teased me a little bit, but nothing too bad. I still get mail every now and then from schools."
That commitment has not changed. Good says that he remains just as solid to Oklahoma as he did when he made the big decision several months ago.
The coaching staff is a big reason why his commitment has stayed a solid one.
"Like I had said before, I just fell in love with the coaches, the town, the atmosphere, and how the campus was," Good said. "Everything at OU seems to fit me."
Good says that with being named to five-star status and having his commitment made already, there is still another goal that he's looking at to achieve.
"A state championship would be it," Good said. "We're going to try to make a run for it this year. We've got (Keon) Furtch and Jordan (Fields) committed to A&M and some looking at other colleges. We have some talented players and dedicated players.
"So, we're going to turn that to a state championship team."
