Oklahoma's 2010 signing class has gotten a surprise boon.

Four-star linebacker Corey Nelson, who for months was committed to Texas A&M and reaffirmed that commitment last week, has signed with the Sooners.

The 210-pound Nelson is considered one of the top outside linebackers in the country.

He was a three-time All-State selection at Dallas Skyline High School.
