Everyone seemingly has that one gift they can't live without. We make wishlists and unwrap gifts. With that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to take a look at what class of 2016 prospects are on the Sooners Christmas Recruiting Wishlist.

1. 5-Star LB Caleb Kelly 6-3/215 from Fresno, CA.

Any wishlist that doesn't include Kelly is incomplete. The California star has elite potential and is a vital part of the class of 2016. The Sooners competition for Kelly was long thought to be Michigan, but its looks like Notre Dame has emerged. The one constant on his list: OKLAHOMA.

2. 4-Star WR Velus Jones 6-0/180 from Saraland, AL.

Velus by all accounts should have already been a Sooner, but has since delayed his decision. In spite of the pessimism among some Sooner fans regarding Velus, I believe that he will end up a Sooner.

3. 4-Star WR Quartney Davis 6-1/185 from Houston, TX.

Davis is set to visit the weekend of January 22nd. It might end up being the case that the Sooners can't take both Davis (who was formerly committed to Texas A&M) and Jones, but I believe that you just can't turn down elite talent at the WR position.

4. 4-Star OT EJ Price 6-6/315 from Lawrenceville, GA.

This will be an incredibly difficult pull, as Price seemed thrilled with the Kirby Smart hire. He is planning on taking a Sooners official visit before deciding. I have had him as a Sooners commitment prediction on previous lists, but Georgia is definitely trending upward for Price. That being said an elite left tackle prospect, has to be at or near the top of any wishlist.

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

Bledsoe will have seemingly an interesting decision on the horizon. Does he stay at home and play for the Jayhawks or head south to Norman? I am not ready to claim the Jayhawks the winner in this sweepstakes, but they are definitely making things interesting.

6. 5-Star LB Mique Juarez 6-2/220 from Torrance, CA

Hey one can dream right? Juarez will barring something crazy stay on the west coast (USC/UCLA), but adding him to the Sooners would be incredible.

7. 3-Star DL Marcel Southall 6-3/270 from Duncanville, TX.

Southall is easily one of my favorite recruits in the class of 2016. While he has kinda flown under the radar. Regardless of his ranking, I believe he has the potential to be the best player in the Sooners class.

8. 3-Star OL Tramonda Moore 6-5/330 from Oklahoma City, OK.

Assuming he can qualify, Moore has the talent to star at the next level. This seems to be a Bedlam battle and the Sooners appear to be out in front.

9. 4-Star Brandon Burton 6-1/190 from Gardena, CA.

Again Burton appears to be a player that will stay on the west coast, but the Sooners definitely have a better than fighting chance.

10. 4-Star LB Mark Jackson 6-3/220 from Cibolo, TX.

Jackson is currently committed to A&M, but rumors swirl that he will visit both Texas and OU. This is a battle that I believe the Sooners have a real chance to win.
