NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma head men's golf coach Ryan Hybl announced Friday the signing of two golfers to national letters of intent for the 2012-13 early signing period. Joining the Sooners in 2013-14 will be Max McGreevy and Emilio Maurer.
"I love both of these guys and they will be able to come in and compete for spots immediately," Hybl said. "We continue to build the foundation of this program from our younger guys and these two young men will contribute a lot to OU golf."

McGreevy is regarded by Golfweek as the country's No. 11 recruit in the 2013 class. Last year as a junior, McGreevy earned medalist honors at the 2012 Oklahoma 6A State Championship. He also won the American Junior Golf Association KMPG and the Stacy Lewis Junior Open. Other notable finishes included 15th place in stroke play of the United States Golf Association Junior Amateur Championship and ninth place at the Junior PGA Championship.
OU Head Coach Ryan Hybl on Max McGreevy:
"We are so excited to add Max McGreevy to our squad, as he brings great experience, athleticism and a great desire to win and to get better. I will be looking forward to having him here with us next fall and it is always nice to bring an Oklahoman onto our roster."
Maurer is a member of the Mexican Junior National Team, and is ranked by Golfweek as the No. 56 recruit of the 2013 class. Last year, Maurer was the Copa Mazatlan Champion and finished in ninth place at the AJGA Puerto Rico Junior Open. He also qualified for the USGA Junior Amateur Championship. Maurer will join Eduardo Castiello (Guadalajara, Mexico) and Nicholas Smits (Gold Coast, Australia) as international student-athletes on OU's roster next season.
OU Head Coach Ryan Hybl on Emilio Maurer:
"Emilio is going to be another great addition for our program. He has proven himself on the big stage, he is well-traveled and I don't think college golf will be a huge transition for him because of his time he has spent away from home."
