NORMAN – Oklahoma men’s golf head coach Ryan Hybl announced the signing of three golfers in the 2021 class on Wednesday. The Sooners will add Garrett Engle, Drew Goodman and Hudson Weibel to the No. 1 ranked team in the country heading into the spring season.

“This is a really good group of players and we could not be more excited about all of them joining our program,” Hybl said. “I know that they’ll come into our program and make an impact immediately for us, but we’re also looking forward to their development along the way.”

Engle is set to join the Sooners from Harrisburg, Pa., where he is ranked as the top player in the state and the No. 12 prospect in the 2021 class. He is a two-time Mid-Penn Conference champion and has banked seven top-10 finishes at AJGA events. He finished tied for eighth at the 2019 U.S. Open Sectional qualifying and 2019 Junior Jones Cup. Engle is a three-sport athlete, playing baseball and basketball in addition to golf at the high school level. He helped raise over $3,000 for the Els for Autism Foundation.

“Garrett is our kind of guy,” Hybl said. “He absolutely loves to play as much golf as possible and his golf IQ is very high because of it. We’re excited about adding him to the squad and his competitiveness will be a huge asset for us.”

The second member of the 2021 class is Drew Goodman, a senior at Christian Heritage Academy. The Norman, Okla., native has cemented himself as one of the top prospects in the country. The two-time AJGA All-American is ranked No. 30 in the Rolex AJGA rankings after taking home medalist honors at the 2018 Under Armour Jordan Spieth Championship and 2019 Bass Pro/Payne Stewart Championship. Ranked No. 15 in the Golfweek rankings for the class of 2021, and the No. 1 prospect in Oklahoma, Goodman is the back-to-back-to-back champion of the OJGT/TJGT Red River Challenge, which highlights the best amateur golfers in Oklahoma and Texas. Goodman gets it done in the classroom too and is a National Merit Semifinalist.

“Drew is a serious competitor that has the will to be great,” Hybl said. “He is just that type of Oklahoman that we absolutely love to have in our program because he knows how to grind and get the absolute most out of his game.”

The final member of Hybl’s 2021 early signing class is Hudson Weibel from Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas. Weibel has racked up 10 victories and finished inside the top three 19 times as a junior golfer. He helped lead Highland Park to the 5A Texas State High School Championship and is a two-time First Team All-State member. The future Sooner won the 2020 Lanny Wadkins Cup firing a 68 and 65 to win the prestigious event and owns a 72.51 stroke average in 20 events this year. He calls Dallas Country Club and Maridoe Golf Club his home course and is a National Honor Society member, possessing a 3.67 GPA.

“Hudson continues to show fantastic development in his golf game,” Hybl said. “He is a serious worker and will be a great addition to our team. He is so good fundamentally and has loved this university since he was born, and we know he will give everything he has to help our program.”

The Sooners are coming off a fall slate that saw Hybl’s team notch a win and three more top-four finishes, including runner-up honors at the East Lake Cup. The Sooners are ranked No. 1 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings heading into the spring season.
