November has already been an interesting month on the recruiting front as the Sooners lost a long time commitment in JUCO DB Maurice Chandler. With his de-commitment the Sooners currently set at 11 commitments. Assuming that no more de-commitments take place (although the usually do), the Sooners should add somewhere around 10-12 additional players to round out the class of 2016. So here are our predictions on how the class will turn out.
Current Commitments - 11
Commitment Predictions - 12
I had assumed Speights would commit on his visit as the Sooners dismantled Texas Tech and that didn't happen. Speights will seemingly still visit Texas A&M and Stanford before making a decision. Stanford and A&M's true interest in Speights in questionable as both teams already have running back commitments and A&M is recruiting a running back currently committed to TCU very hard. It might take a while longer than expected, but Speights should find himself a Sooner come national signing day.
Velus is a recent Sooner offer who is currently committed to USC, but that commitment appears to be shaky. He doesn't have an Alabama offer and should visit. While not a ton is known about him yet, I expect him to not only visit, but wind up in the Sooners class of 2016.
Willies is currently committed to Texas Tech, but I expect him to visit the Sooners at some point. The Sooners have made a rash of JUCO offers and I believe that Willies will switch to the Sooners at some point.
Moore has continued to see his stock soar. While most assume this a Bedlam battle, Moore tweeting out he will be in Oklahoma this Saturday is a big deal considering he could have chosen to attend the OSU game who is hosting TCU.The biggest question with Moore is whether or not he will qualify.
I really don't know who to pick here, but the Sooners will take another offensive tackle prospect at some point. Diesch visited the Sooners for the TTech game. This is an A&M and Sooner battle and I guess I'm crazy but I see the Sooners winning this battle.
An Offensive Lineman Who Doesn't Currently Have An Offer
Bledsoe visited the Sooners for the TTech game and the Sooners toughest competition appears to be the hometown Jayhawks. I just can't imagine a scenario where the Jayhawks beat the Sooners for a football prospect.
Daniels is a difference maker along the defensive line. This appears to be an OU/Michigan battle and I bet Daniels ends up much closer to home
Southall is my favorite recruit in the class of 2016. I believe he is vastly under rated and has star potential. The only question with Southall is will he be the victim of the numbers game. I don't think the Sooners turn him down. Southall will visit for the TCU game.
Martin is an under the radar prospect who has the size to blossom into an elite outside linebacker for the Sooners.
Buchanan is currently committed to Louisville, but rumors continue to mount that he will switch to the Sooners. I believe these rumors to be correct
How crazy are we?
