The Oklahoma football team added two transfers in Fresno State's Jalen Saunders and Arizona's Cortez Johnson.

Both players will have to sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will be eligible to play starting in 2013-14.

Saunders is a 5'9, 175-pound receiver who tallied 50 catches for 1065 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

He was Fresno State's leading receiver last season and also earned first team all-conference honors in the WAC as a sophomore.

Johnson was recruited by now OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops who was the former head coach of the Wildcats. He recorded 16 tackles as a true freshman and was a three-star recruit out of high school.

The Sooners first game of the 2012-13 season is set for September 1 at UTEP.
