As the Sooners are set to host the Zips, recruiting is starting to heat up as well. Here is the latest news regarding several key prospects for the class of 2016.

1. 4* OG JohnCarlo Valentin 6-5/340 from Philadelphia, PA

Valentin would be a huge addition to the Sooners class of 2016. He is all set to officially visit the Sooners this weekend. While I don't expect a commit from Valentin on this visit, I do think the Sooners are at or near the top of his list. The Sooners primary competition will be the Hokies and Wolverines, but I predict that he will end up as a Sooner.

2. 4* DT Chris Daniels 6-3/301 from Euless, TX.

Daniels tweeted out his top 5 earlier this morning and here it is.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I just want to thank everyone for tuning in &amp; following me through this process my Top 5 is <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/UofM?src=hash">#UofM</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Bama?src=hash">#Bama</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/OU?src=hash">#OU</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/A?src=hash">#A</a>&amp;M <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/OSU?src=hash">#OSU</a> <a href="http://t.co/Q14L0XfxvG">pic.twitter.com/Q14L0XfxvG</a></p>&mdash; Chris Daniels 7 (@clicclac97) <a href="https://twitter.com/clicclac97/status/639860555461693441">September 4, 2015</a></blockquote>

Several things are really interesting about this tweet.

1. TCU is absent. Many considered the Horned Frogs to be the favorite, but they are not in Daniels top 5.

2. Look what team Chris Daniels is holding. Hint Sooner fans will like it.

I also at this time have Chris Daniels predicted as a Sooner in the class of 2016.

3. 4* DB Jordan Parker 5-11/184 from Pittsburg, CA.

Jordan Parker is set to visit OU when they take on the WVU the first weekend in October. The super talented DB was once committed to UCLA, and according to many was a near lock to re-commit to the Bruins. That all changed as Parker tweeted out his visit to UCLA was cancelled.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ucla visit is now canceled ⚠️⚠️⚠️ ONLY 3 officials set as of now</p>&mdash; Jordan J-Jona Parker (@_2FOE) <a href="https://twitter.com/_2FOE/status/639635794240520192">September 4, 2015</a></blockquote>

This is shaping up to be a battle between Tennessee and the Sooners.
