The Sooners need linebacker in the worst way. After only taking two prospects in the class of 2015 and the early departure of Dominique Alexander have left the Sooners with 6 scholarship linebackers for spring practice (1 of which is hurt). With that being said, It wouldn't shock me to see them take 6 linebackers in the class of 2016 (assuming a couple are JUCOs). This search has taken them to Montgomery, AL and 3-star prospect P.J. Blue 6-4/205. Blue is currently committed to Louisville, but the a huge visit this weekend could and should vault the Sooners to the top of Blue's list.
Bob Pryzbolo of Scout.com confirmed the visit with the following tweet.

Blue is an intriguing prospect, who has the frame the pack on substantial weight and strength at the next level. Blue also has offers from Bama, Clemson, Ole Miss, Mizzou, Nebraska, and SCar to name a few.
