With Spring evaluations in full force, the Sooners have continued to extend offers to prospects across the country, and even to an offensive lineman from Hawaii. Here is a quick run down of the last few days and who has picked up offers

1. DB Jaqui (JJ) Givens 6-1/170 from Mechanicsville, VA.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>blessed just received my 2nd offer today from the University of Oklahoma⭕️ <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BoomerSooner?src=hash">#BoomerSooner</a> <a href="http://t.co/pq6cpAWnmd">pic.twitter.com/pq6cpAWnmd</a></p>&mdash; JJ Givens (@RegimeJay) <a href="https://twitter.com/RegimeJay/status/591037561977622529">April 23, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Givens has an interesting connection to the Sooner football program in that he was teammates with class of 2015 LB Ricky Deberry. Givens has offers from from ASU, Duke, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Mich. St., NC State, UNC, VTech, Wake Forest, WVU, and the Sooners. With a huge connection to the Sooner program, it wouldn't shock me to see the Sooners in this race for the long haul.

2. OL Michael Eletise 6-4/302 from Honolulu, Hawaii

Eletise tweeted out his offer. (We will forgive him on his spelling of the Oklahoma).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>FIRED UP &amp; HONORED to receive an offer to play football for Oaklahoma SOONERS! <a href="https://twitter.com/OU_CoachB">@OU_CoachB</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/OU_CoachStoops">@OU_CoachStoops</a>! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Sooners?src=hash">#Sooners</a> <a href="http://t.co/Ko2WpzuVg5">pic.twitter.com/Ko2WpzuVg5</a></p>&mdash; Michael Eletise (@MichaelEletise) <a href="https://twitter.com/MichaelEletise/status/591661268697649152">April 24, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Eletise is an elite talent at offensive guard. The problem for the Sooners will be overcoming the distance and the fact that he has offers from basically every school on the west coast minus USC and Oregon. This will be an uphill battle for sure.

3. Parnell Motley 6-1/170 from Washington D.C.

Motley has offers from Miami, Rutgers, Clemson, UConn, Michigan, Mich., St., UNC, Virginia, WVU, and the Sooners.
