Jackson Jeffcoat's decision this Sunday night could push Oklahoma's recruiting class into a top three national ranking.
Jackson Jeffcoat's decision this Sunday night could push Oklahoma's recruiting class into a top three national ranking.

National Signing Day, for college football prospects, is just over a week away (Feb 3rd) and the Sooners are currently sitting on one of the top classes in the country with 29 verbal commitments. Of those commitments 5 of them (OL - Bronson Irwin, S - Tony Jefferson, WR - Sheldon McClain, WR - Kenny Stills and OL - Austin Woods) are already enrolled and on campus for the spring semester.

Out of Oklahoma's 29 commitments 15 of them are four star recruits and 14 are 3 star per Rivals who currently have the Sooners ranked with the nation's fifth best recruiting class. However, there are still some "big fish" out there that could bump OU up a few notches should they decide to pledge their allegiance to the University of Oklahoma. Here are three guys that have made official visits to Norman over the last month that could push this year's recruiting class to the top.

DE Jackson Jeffcoat (Plano, TX) - Rated as a five star recruit by Rivals, Jeffcoat is most likely the most coveted recruit remaining for Oklahoma. He was on campus this past weekend and will make the announcement about his college of choice Sunday night on a Dallas television station. 

OT John Cullen (Fullerton, CA) - A junior college transfer and rated as a four star recruit by Rivals, Cullen was on campus a few weeks ago. He's possibly one of two players that Oklahoma could sway away from another school at the last minute. Cullen had been committed to Tennessee but has reopened the recruiting process with the departure of Lane Kiffin.

OLB Corey Nelson (Dallas, TX) - Nelson is rated as a four star recruit by Rivals and is currently committed to Texas A&M but visited the OU campus this past weekend along with Jackson Jeffcoat. The fact that he's willing to visit shows that he's at least interested to listening to how he could be a part of Oklahoma's defensive schemes.
