The Sooners have struck gold recruiting gold in the Golden State seemingly since the class that featured Brennan Clay, Tony Jefferson, and Kenny Stills. With the direction the class of 2016 is moving it is likely it will only further solidify the Sooners presence out west. The Sooners already have a commitment from consensus 4 star linebacker Bryce Youngquist and appear to be far from done. In fact what could be shaping up could lead to a highly talented trio of players joining Youngquist in Norman as a part of the class of 2016.
Shurod Thompson, Jordan Parker, and Lamar Jackson have made some pretty serious plans to all play together at the next level. In fact both Parker and Thompson have all but guaranteed it. The UCLA Bruins seemed to at one point to be the primary beneficiary of this talk, but then Parker decommitted.
Now both Thompson and Jackson have set up official visits for the Sooners home game against West Virginia, and I fully expect they will be joined by Parker.
So just who are these players and where are they from.
