The class of 2016 is starting to come into focus as we move closer and closer to National Signing Day. There will be several changes to this month's commitment prediction list as the Sooner are seemingly no longer involved with LB Marvin Terry and many assume that RB Devwah Whaley will now end up at Georgia. I also still expect the class to consist of 22 players. So here is our commitment prediction list for October.

Commitments - 11

4* QB Austin Kendall 6-2/210

3* JUCO WR Ryan Parker 6-2/175

3* WR Adrian Hardy 6-2/185

3* OL Logan Roberson 6-5/318

3* LB Jon-Michael Terry 6-2/225

3* LB Pernell Jefferson 6-2/235

4* LB Bryce Youngquist 6-2/210

3* JUCO DB Maurice Chandler 6-1/190

3* DB Parrish Cobb 5-11/175

3* DB Chanse Sylvie 6-0/185

4* DB Jordan Parker 5-11/184

Predictions - 11*

3* RB Trevor Speights 5-9/200 from McAllen, TX.

Speights just recently picked up a Sooner offer and seems excited. The Sooners have some stiff competition for Speights in Stanford and Texas A&M, but this is a battle I believe the Sooners can win. Check out his highlights below.

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

Cleveland by all accounts had an excellent visit when the Sooners hosted the Golden Hurricane. I believe they not only made up ground, but currently set in the driver's seat for this ultra talented WR.

3* OT Kellen Diesch 6-7/270 from Trophy Club, TX

While Diesch is currently committed to Arkansas, I still believe he ends up a Sooner. Diesch will need to add weight at the next level, but has a prototypical frame to be a big time offensive tackle.

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

Even though Moore's stock continues to soar, I expect this to be a Bedlam battle. Something tells me he won't turn down the chance to play for the Sooners in the end.

An Offensive Tackle not currently with an offer or committed to another school.

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

A&M or OU? I believe it will be the Sooners in the end.

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

Southall's offer list is impressive with the likes of Bama, Ark, Baylor, UF, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas, and the Sooners.

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

Bledsoe is quiet but I expect him to be a Sooner.

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

This one keeps trending more and more in the Sooners direction.

4* LB Darrian Franklin 6-1/225 from Downey, CA.

Franklin snuck in for a visit under the radar last weekend as the Sooners hosted the Moutaineers. I don't expect his commitment with the Ducks to stick.

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

Buchanan is currently committed to Louisville where his dad (Ray Buchanan) played. I believe Baylen will switch his commitment to the Sooners and round out the defensive back class for the Sooners in 2016.

*There are several others who could easily find themselves a part of the class of 2016. Transfers of players currently on the roster, de-commitments, or a player currently on this list not qualifying. Here are several that would fit in this criteria.

3* OL Rowdy Frederick 6-4/330 from Broken Arrow, OK (No Offer Yet)

3* JUCO DL Tralund Webber 6-5/250 from Blinn C.C. in Brenham, TX

3* DL Jordan Elliot 6-5/300 from Houston, TX

2* TE Blake Williams 6-4/225 from Mustang, OK (No Offer Yet)
