Signing Day will be here before we know it (February 3rd), and the Sooners are still looking to fill holes at WR, LB, OL, and DL. I expect this class to end up somewhere right around 22 players. Here are the players we predict will be a part of the class of 2016.
CURRENT COMMITS - 16*
*Don't be surprised if a player that is currently committed is not on the list on National Signing Day. Also don't freak out over who it is, because if the predictions go as planned, the Sooners will be more than fine come National Signing Day.
COMMIT PREDICTIONS - 8
While it would have been great for this one to already happen, I believe this one will be decided before National Signing Day.
The big question with Moore is whether he will qualify. Moore still has visits set for OKState and possibly Bama. Regardless of what Moore says, this appears to be a Bedlam battle.
An OL committed elsewhere or not currently having an offer
I would love to put EJ Price, Jauan Williams, or Greg Little on this list, but I just don't see it as of now. If it were to happen I would think the Sooners are in much better shape for Price or Williams. In the end, I expect another offer at offensive tackle to go out between now and the first Wednesday in February.
This will be a heart vs. head battle. Bledsoe is from Lawrence, KS and this appears to be a KU/OU battle. Bledsoe's offer list is extensive, but in the end I believe he makes a decision that is best for his future and that decision will be the Sooners.
Southall still has visits to OKState, Miami, and Ole Miss. The Ole Miss visit scares me somewhat, but I believe the Sooners will win out by the narrowest of margins.
Jackson is set to visit the Sooners before National Signing Day. Even though he is an A&M commitment, I don't expect it to stick. The other team to watch out for is Texas.
OTHERS JUST ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
Here is some talk of an OU visit (I think it will happen). Fowler seems to be a more of a fit for OLB in a 3-4, but would likely be a DE for LSU. Should the Sooners get him on campus, all bets are off for him remaining a LSU commit.
Sadly Price lives in Georgia, and I believe that will be the difference between him being a Sooner and a Bulldog.
I think a visit will happen, but it looks like the Sooners are a little late for Williams who appears to be locked in to FSU.
The Sooners are working to get him to take a visit. Guidry is really, really good, but as of yet it appears he is sticking with the Hogs.
Taylor will like be the victim of the Sooners taking a smaller class.
This would be amazing, but I just don't see it.
Chattman was a longtime LSU commit. He would need to significant weight, but has the athleticism to be a really solid player if he can get to 230+. I'm not sure where things stand with OU and him.
Burton was set to announce at the Under Armour All-American Game, but delayed his announcement. With the rumors swirling about Mora headed to the NFL, anything can happen, but as of now I expect Burton to remain on the west coast.
