With a visit to Norman already scheduled, it's no surprise that five-star running back Joe Mixon of Oakley (Calif.) Freedom has the Sooners in his top 10.
But Mixon made it official Friday, posting the list on Twitter one by one.
The Sooners are the only Big 12 team in Mixon's list.
Joining OU on the list is California, Florida, Ohio State, Oregon, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Washington and Wisconsin.
Mixon (6-foot-2, 207 pounds) rushed for 1,443 yards and 21 touchdowns on 201 carries as a junior.
Mixon has two visits scheduled — to Texas A&M for the Aggies' game against top-ranked Alabama on the Sept. 14 and to Oklahoma on Oct. 5 for the Sooners' game against TCU.
He isn't expected to commit soon.
The Sooners' last five-star signee out of high school came in 2011 when they signed both Trey Metoyer and Brandon Williams.
Metoyer wound up going to prep school for a year before resigning with the Sooners while Williams transferred to Texas A&M after his freshman season.
IKARD, IRWIN: WATCH OUT FOR TREYS IN 2013
According to Oklahoma senior offensive linemen Gabe Ikard and Bronson Irwin, Sooner fans should keep an eye on Trey Millard and Trey Metoyer this season.
Ikard and Irwin were asked at Wednesday's Sooner Caravan event to name a player on the OU offense who could have a big season.
“I know he's done a lot of great stuff, but I think Trey Millard's gonna be an even bigger part of our offense this year,” Ikard said in a statement that had to be music to OU fans' ears. “We've got a lot of stuff in that puts him in some good spots, so I'm excited about that. He does so much for the team, but we're trying to get him some more touches.”
Fans have long yearned for Millard, a senior fullback, to receive more carries, but in his three years, he's only carried the ball 81 times for 441 yards and five touchdowns. He's also got 59 career receptions for 599 yards and six scores.
Irwin chose to mention Metoyer, a sophomore wideout who entered his true freshman season with sky-high expectations, but only managed 17 receptions, 148 yards and a single touchdown.
“Kind of freakish body, long arms, biggest hands I've ever seen,” Irwin said. “He's made some amazing grabs, one-handed. All kinds of crazy stuff.”
STOOPS EXPECTS BIG THINGS FROM WILSON, TAPPER
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was asked at Wednesday night's Sooner Caravan to name a defensive player fans should watch out for in 2013.
Stoops named two — junior defensive back Julian Wilson and sophomore defensive end Charles Tapper.
“Julian Wilson is a guy we love, the way he played a year ago,” Stoops said. “And Charles Tapper at the defensive end position. A young, second-year guy, are guys I think could come on and really do well.”
Wilson, a former Southmoore standout, is expected to be the Sooners' nickelback this season after playing a dimeback role a year ago, when he recorded 31 tackles and broke up five passes.
Tapper played sparingly as a true freshman, but enters this season with a strong chance to start opposite junior Geneo Grissom. The 6-foot-4, 261-pound sophomore came to OU from Baltimore.
