Every month we have been giving you a commitment prediction, breaking down who we believe will most likely end up in the class of 2016. In this post however, we are going to give you what would be the ideal or perfect finish for the class of 2016. This post will outline the ideal (yet still within the realm of possibility) class of 2016. While we know this class is not going to happen, it can serve as a reference point for what could be.

3* RB Abdul Adams 6-0/190 from Durham, NC

Adams is currently a Michigan State commitment, but was one of the earliest class of 2016 offers. While it might take a lot for him to rethink his commitment to the Spartans, there is no doubt he has the tools to star in Lincoln Riley's offense.

4* WR Tyrie Cleveland 6-3/190 from Houston, TX.

Tyrie by all accounts had a great Sooner visit and would thrive in this offense. He is a big time play maker.

3* JUCO OT Ashton Julious 6-8/330 from Scranton, PA.

The need for immediate impact along the offensive line is obvious. Julious is a mountain of a prospect who could easily slide into one of the starting tackle positions.

4* OT E.J. Price 6-6/315  from Lawrenceville, GA

Price is the prototypical offensive tackle prospect. He has some definite interest in the Sooners.

3* OT Kellen Diesch 6-7/270 from Flower Mound, TX

Diesch has the frame to turn into a monster OT at the college level.

3* OT Tramonda Moore 6-5/330 from Oklahoma City, OK

Moore has seen his stock take and off and he has the athleticism to be a really solid college football player.

4* DE Amani Bledsoe 6-5/270 from Lawrence, KS

Bledsoe is a load at DE. He would continue to build and add to the talented depth along the Sooners defensive line.

4* DL Chris Daniels 6-3/300 from Euless, TX.

Daniels is a difference maker in the interior. Landing players like him is essential for top programs.

3* DL Marcel Southall 6-3/270 from Duncanville, TX.

Honestly in spite of his ranking, I believe Southall has the potential to be the star of his class. His best football is in front of him.

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

Who wouldn't want to have a player that has the cover skills of  safety, but the size to play linebacker. That is Juarez.

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

Kelly is a star in the making. Teaming him up with players like Youngquist and Juarez would give the Sooners some incredibly future star power at linebacker.

4* DB Lamar Jackson 6-2/205 from Elk Grove, CA.

Lamar is an elite talent. You can't pass on elite talent.

3* DB Baylen Buchanan 5-11/187 from Suwanee, GA.

Big time talent and the son of a former NFL star. Buchanan would be a great addition to the Sooners class.

Would the numbers actually work for a class like this? Well there would certainly have to be some mathematical gymnastics to make the numbers work, but this would certainly be a class for the ages.
