Oklahoma football: A closer look at the Sooners' top remaining 2014 recruiting targets

National signing day is less than two weeks away, and while Oklahoma has 22 players committed for its 2014 recruiting class, the Sooners are making a final push to add a few more.

COURTNEY GARNETT

Hometown/school: New Orleans/St. Augustine

Position: Defensive tackle

Height, Weight: 6-2, 280

Stars (Rivals/Scout/ESPN): 3/3/4

The latest: Garnett visited Norman in mid-January, and was supposed to visit Tennessee this weekend but didn't make the trip. Garnett might still visit Oregon, but judging from Garnett's tweets, the Sooners remain the heavy favorite to land the former Texas commitment.  

STEVEN PARKER

Hometown/school: Jenks

Position: Safety

Height, Weight: 6-2, 185

Stars (Rivals/Scout/ESPN): 4/4/4

The latest: Parker's father said earlier this month that Oklahoma was the favorite, but the highly coveted safety prospect had planned to visit Oklahoma State this weekend before a basketball conflict prevented it. He's also planning a trip to Auburn before Signing Day. Parker, the nation's 53rd-ranked prospect according to Rivals, also remains somewhat interested in Oklahoma State and Texas A&M. 

MICHIAH QUICK

Hometown/school: Fresno, Calif./Central East

Position: Athlete (Wide receiver)

Height, Weight: 6-0, 170

Stars (Rivals/Scout/ESPN): 4/4/4

The latest: Quick visited Oklahoma in early October, and the Sooners have remained one of his favorite schools to this point. Hatari Byrd and L.J. Moore — 2013 OU signees — were Quick's high-school teammates, a fact that surely will play in the Sooners' favor. Quick is also interested in Notre Dame, UCLA and USC.
