It's seems to be preety obvious that the Sooners will need to land at least 4 linebackers in the class of 2016. We thought we would take a moment to give you an overview of where linebacker recruiting stands just as the dust has settled on the class of 2015. We will also make predictions on a way too early class of 2016 linebacker commitments.

1. Calvin Bundage 6-3/200 from Edmond, OK @bundage27

Offers: Arizona, Iowa St., Michigan, OkState, TTech, Tulsa, and OU

PREDICTION: OU

2. Caleb Kelly 6-3/215 from Fresno, CA  @calebkelly

Offers: Bama, Arizona, ASU, FSU, LSU, Oregon, Notre Dame, Michigan, USC, UCLA, and OU (along with basically every other school in the country.

PREDICTION: OU

3. Rahshaun Smith 6-2/225 from Bradenton, FL by way of Baltimore, MD @Nextlevel_Shaq

Offers: Bama, Ark, Clemson, FSU, Kentucky, Mich St., Ohio St., USC, UCLA, Wisconsin, and OU (along with basically every other school in the country.

PREDICTION: A week ago I would have said OU, but with the departure of Jerry Montgomery, the Sooners will have to make up some ground. Looks for FSU or Clemson to be strong suitors for Smith
