NORMAN — Heading into the final 10 days of the 2010 recruiting season, Oklahoma claims 29 oral commitments. But the Sooners might not be done.
OU is still looking to add at least one, maybe two players to a football class already being billed as one of the five best in the country. Here‘s who the Sooners are targeting:
Jackson Jeffcoat→Position: Defensive end →High school: Plano (Texas) West →Ht.: 6-5 →Wt.: 240 →Stars: Five →Rivals ranking: No. 12 overall →ESPN ranking: No. 2 overall →Who else he’s considering: Texas, Arizona State, Houston →The skinny: Texas coach Mack Brown swooped into Plano last week to try and secure a commitment from Jeffcoat before his scheduled official visit to OU this past weekend. Instead, Jeffcoat remained uncommitted and was spotted in Norman with coach Bob Stoops. Working in the Sooners’ favor is that Jeffcoat’s twin sister, Jacqueline, will be a member of the OU women’s basketball team next fall. Jeffcoat is expected to announce his commitment next Sunday night on a Dallas TV station. Count on this one going down to the wire.
John Cullen→Position: Offensive tackle →Junior college: Fullerton (Calif.) →Ht.: 6-6 →Wt.: 280 →Stars: Four →Rivals ranking: No. 3 overall junior-college prospect →ESPN ranking: N/A →Who else he’s considering: Tennessee, Arizona State, Utah, Kansas State, USC →The skinny: Cullen seemed destined for Tennessee, until coach Lane Kiffin bolted for USC.
