Well this news could certainly brighten the Sooners fans day at least a little bit. An interesting recruiting story line is emerging that could lead to the Sooners having a realistic chance to finish with an incredible and quite possibly legendary linebacker class.

As it stands the Sooners linebacker class is highlighted by 4 Star Bryce Youngquist. The California native has all the potential in the world to excel at the next level. He is joined by Jon-Michael Terry and Pernell Jefferson (who are in no way slouches), but what sits on the horizon for the Sooners at linebacker could take this class to another level.

While this is by all accounts a pie in the sky dream scenario, here is the list of linebackers set to visit for the TCU. game

5* Caleb Kelly 6-3/215 from Fresno, CA.

5* Mique Juarez 6-2/215 from Torrance, CA

5* Daelin Hayes 6-3/254 from Ann Arbor, MI

Here are several quick notes about this incredibly talented trio.

Caleb Kelly

Caleb Kelly appears to be all but locked in to the Sooners. It would be a huge upset to see him anywhere but in Norman next year. Kelly's impact for the Sooners is already starting to take shape as he has become pretty good friends with Juarez.

Mique Juarez

Juarez' de-committed from USC today and seems to be settling on either UCLA or OU. While I am reluctant to say he will land anywhere other than UCLA, a season where UCLA falls apart and the Sooners finish in convincing fashion could lead to Juarez winding up in Norman.

Daelin Hayes

While not much is known about Hayes and his Sooner interest, he tweeted out the following several days ago.

Then news broke today that Hayes will be in Norman for the TCU game.

Here is my prediction as of today for each prospect.

Caleb Kelly- OU

Mique Juarez- UCLA (But the Sooners are definitely gaining ground)

Hayes- Notre Dame
