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.
