*HERE ARE SEVERAL QUICK UPDATES AS THE GAME IS ABOUT TO START*

Additional Visitors

4* Elysee Mbem-Bosse 6-2/228 from Ellenwood, GA

3* OL Rowdy Frederick 6-4/330 from Broken Arrow, OK

4* OT EJ Price 6-6/310 will reschedule

There have been some huge recruiting weekends throughout Bob Stoops tenure in Norman, but this just might be the biggest one yet. The Sooners visitor list for class of 2016, 2017, and 2018 prospects is basically too large to be able to totally grasp in a post, but we will try. These lists are also fluid and subject to change, and with that in mind here are the players from the classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018 that we expect to be in Norman this weekend.

2016

4* QB Austin Kendall 6-2/210 from Waxhaw, NC (OU Commit)

It's never bad to have your class of 2016 QB on campus to help recruit and this weekend.

3* RB Abdul Adams 6-0/205 from Durham, NC

Adams was an early Sooner offer and is down to Maryland, Bama, and OU.

3* RB Brandon Stephens 6-1/205 from Plano, TX (Stanford Commit)

The Sooners are definitely interested. Who will get the ONE spot at RB for the Class of 2016 will be interesting to watch.

4* WR Velus Jones 6-0/180 from Saralad, AL (USC Commit)

Jones is a recent Sooner offer who has serious interest in the Sooners. He appears to be down to OU and Michigan even though he is still technically committed to USC. I wouldn't be shocked if he commits to OU this weekend on his visit.

3* JUCO WR Dre Massey 6-0/185 from Goodman, MS

Dre Massey has speed for days and is down to OU, UF, and South Carolina. A huge visit could lead to a commitment.

4* OT EJ Price 6-6/310 from Lawrenceville, GA

Price is thought to be a Georgia lean, but getting him on campus this weekend is huge.

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

This a Bedlam battle and one I believe the Sooners can win.

JUCO OT Bennett Powers 6-5/315 from El Dorado, KS

Powers recruitment is taking off as he has picked up offers from TCU, TTech, and KSU recently. It's interesting that Power is coming on a visit, because another JUCO OL in this class only makes sense if a current lineman may be considering a transfer.

3* OG Trystan Castillo 6-4/280 from Webb City, MO (Mizzou Commit)

I think he gets a Sooner offer this weekend and soon after Castillo flips his commitment to OU.

3* OG Blake Hickey 6-4/275 from Godley, TX (KSU Commit)

I really like Hickey's film but not sure he gets an offer this weekend. If he does, I would expect him to flip to OU as well.

3* OG Logan Roberson 6-5/315 from Harrah, OK (OU Commit)

Roberson will be taking his official visit this weekend. He has really improved as a run blocker this year.

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

Daniels is seemingly down to OU and Michigan, and I believe the Sooners lead for this impact defensive tackle.

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

Elliott has offers from everybody, and I believe a big visit could put the Sooners squarely in the mix.

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

Marcel's offer list is extensive, but the Sooners are by all accounts the team to beat.

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

Kelly is down to what appears OU and Michigan (seeing a trend here), but this is a battle the Sooners shouldn't lose. Kelly is an absolute star.

3* DB Parrish Cobb 5-11/175 from Waco, TX (OU Commit)

Cobb will be taking his visit to OU this weekend. He is a player who is much much better than his star ranking would indicate.

3* DB Chanse Sylvie 6-0/185 from Shreveport, LA (OU Commit)

Sylvie like the other Sooner commits on their visit this week, will be asked to help recruit and solidify the class of 2016.

THIS IS NOT THE COMPLETE LIST FOR 2016

2017

4* QB Chris Robison from Mesquite, TX (OU Commit)

4* DB Robert Barnes 6-3/190 from Southlake, TX. (OU Commit)

4* WR Charleston Rambo 6-2/170 from Cedar Hill, TX (OU Offer)

4* OT Grayson Reed6-5/290  from Houston, TX (He should pick up an OU offer this weekend)

3* OL Adrian Wolford 6-5/310 from Meeker, OK

OL Andre Harris 6-4/300 from Oklahoma City, OK

OL Creed Humphrey 6-4/290 from Shawnee, OK

DB Tre Brown from Tulsa, OK 5-11/170

2018

QB Casey Thompson 6-1/180 from Moore, OK (Does this name sound familiar?)

ATH Josh Proctor 6-3/185 from Owasso, OK (OU Offer)

OT Brey Walker 6-6/320 from Moore, OK (OU Offer)

As far as predictions for this weekend go, I believe it is safe to say something will happen at OL. If I had to predict, I would say that Trystan Castillo picks up an offer and commits to the Sooners sometime next week. I also predict that JUCO OT Bennett Powers will pick up an offer as well and commit. This would most likely signal that an offensive lineman will be transferring most likely. As to who it is your guess is as good as mine. I would also put WR Velus Jones, JUCO WR Dre Massey, DL Marcel Southall, and DL Chris Daniels on commit watch, with Southall be much more likely this weekend.

As far as 2017, I think you could see WR Charleston Rambo commit and 2018 athlete Josh Proctor pull the trigger as well.
