Linebacker is the biggest need for the class of 2016 and big steps are being taken to fill the gaping hole in the linebacker depth chart as the Sooners will be hosting numerous linebackers for the spring game. Bob Pryzbolo of Scout.com tweeted out a huge list of visitors

So just who are these prospects and could any find themselves committing to the Sooners this weekend.

1. Calvin Bundage 6-3/200

Offers: Zona, Houston, ISU, Michigan, OKState, Tennessee, TTech, Tulsa, and the Sooners.

Commitment Chance: 50/50. It wouldn't shock me, and in the end I believe he will be a Sooner. I just don't know if he will pull the trigger or not this weekend.

2. Caleb Kelly 6-3/215

Offers: Every School in the country along with the Sooners

Commitment Chance: 0. I also believe that Kelly will end up as a Sooner, but they will have to wait a while, quite possibly even till National Signing Day.

3. Marvin Terry 6-2/225

Offers: Ark, Cal, Louisville, OKState, Oregon, SMU, TCU, TTech, UCLA, Wisconsin, and the Sooners.

Commitment Chance: 20%. This will be a Sooner Red Raider battle. The Red Raiders have hired his former coach and the Sooners have his former teammate Prentice McKinney (class of 2015 safety). It wouldn't shock me if he commits, but it's unlikely.

4. Anthony Hines 6-2/215 Class of 2017

Offers: Basically every school and he is still a sophomore.

Commitment Chance: 0. He is still a year away from being super serious about any school.

5. Pernell Jefferson 6-3/230

Offers: Miss St., Ole Miss, Mizzou, TCU, TTech, Tulane, and the Sooners

Commitment Chance: 50/50. Don't be surprised if Jefferson makes it to Norman.
