We are more than happy to admit we were wrong on this one, as the Sooners just added a star LB to the class of 2016 in Bryce Youngquist (6-2/215). Youngquist was thought by many to be a lock for Oregon, but that all changed today as he tweeted out his commitment with the following tweet.

Youngquist is the 2nd linebacker commitment in the class of 2016 (joining Jon-Michael Terry) and the 8th overall commitment for the class of 2016. With the commitment of Sylvie and Youngquist in consecutive days, the Sooners class of 2016 is definitely trending in the right direction.
Here is a short highlight video of Youngquist in action.
