The Sooners must recruit the state of Texas well for them to have success. This has always been the case and will continue to be the case. While this is obvious, I thought I would give a quick overview of what players from Texas could find themselves a part of the class of 2016.
Whaley is definitely trending in the Sooners direction.
A big tall outside receiver is a huge part of any successful class. I fully expect Williams to end up in Norman.
Diesch will have to add some weight, but possesses the frame to be a top shelf OT in college. He has ties to Norman and I have him a part of this class.
Denzel has picked up offers from Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, and the Sooners over the past month. His recruitment is taking off. The Sooners are definitely in a good place for him.
While the Sooners were thought to be eliminated nearly a month ago, many are reporting that new DL coach Diron Reynolds has REALLY put the Sooners back in the mix, if not out in front.
Terry will decide most likely between TTech and the Sooners. I expect the Sooners to win out.
Mayden appears to be down to Ohio State and the Sooners. This is really really close, but getting Mayden would be a major win in the class of 2016.
Acy is kind of an unknown to this point, but the Sooners are his biggest offer.
Daniels recently released his top 10, but this is most likely a TCU, Baylor, OU battle.
Southall went from unknown to big time prospect over the past few months picking up offers from Florida, Alabama, Texas, Baylor, and the Sooners.
While he has a huge offer list, the Sooners are definitely at or near the top.
These 13 players could find themselves joining current commits:
