Signing day suspense

A look at the recruits who remain in play for OU and OSU on signing day.

Will the Sooners add to the secondary?: The biggest remaining target is Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade Madonna cornerback Adrian Baker, who will choose between Clemson and the Sooners. The former Florida State commit will wait to announce until signing day. Even if the Sooners can't get Baker, though, they might pull a twofer in California. OU already has Fresno Central East safety Hatari Byrd on board but the Sooners could add Byrd's teammate, safety L.J. Moore. Arizona State and Oregon State are also hot after Moore though.

Outlaw will decide Wednesday: The Sooners' offensive line class has gotten stronger over the last month in a half and could solidify further if Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King's Joshua Outlaw chooses the Sooners on signing day. Outlaw has recently taken visits to OU, Missouri and Texas Tech and will choose between those three and TCU.

Johnson could go beyond NSD: The Sooners' competition for Toby Johnson, a 6-foot-4, 305-pound defensive tackle from Hutchinson Community College, comes from the SEC. Johnson, a likely redshirt candidate after missing most of last season with a torn ACL, visited Norman in September and is also considering Georgia, Mississippi State and Missouri. Academics, though, could preclude Johnson from joining an SEC school and the Sooners seem a distinct possibility, though it might not be decided until after Wednesday. George Adeosun also remains a possibility.
