NORMAN, Okla. University of Oklahoma men’s golf coach Jim Ragan announced Friday the signing of a pair of players to National Letters of Intent, completing OU’s 2007 recruiting class. Joining the Sooners as freshmen in the fall will be Liam Logan (Fort Worth, Texas) and Ryan Sirman (Tyler, Texas).
“I am very happy with the 2007 recruiting class,” Ragan said. “They both are very accomplished players that I expect great things from at the University of Oklahoma. Both have proven that they know how to win and I expect that competitiveness to carry over to the collegiate level.”
Sirman currently boasts an impressive streak of seven consecutive tournament victories, including the 2007 Texas Junior Golf Tour Championship. The three-time Texas All-State honoree qualified for match play at the 2006 U.S. Junior Amateur, losing to 2004 U.S. Amateur champion Sihwan Kim.
Leading Grace Community High School to state titles in 2004 and 2006, Sirman also carded three top-12 finishes in 2006 American Junior Golf Association nationwide events.
Sirman has competed in 38 tournament rounds over the past 12 months, compiling a stroke average of 72 with 15 rounds under par and 10 wins.
“Ryan is an accomplished junior player that continues to get better as time goes on,” said Ragan. “He has proven his merits in tournaments both in Texas and across the country and we are looking forward to him being a Sooner.”
Logan, who attends Paschal High School in Fort Worth, has won back-to-back District 4-5A tournament titles, earning first-team all-district honors in the process.
The senior led Paschal to the state title his junior year, carding seven top-five finishes in 2006 tournaments. Playing out of Mira Vista Golf Club, Logan’s impressive resume includes 24 top-five finishes since the summer of 2003.
“Liam has a favorable record against some of the top players in Texas,” Ragan said. “We are excited about having him join our team.”
