OU wish list: Defensive tackle

The wish list returns with a look at OU's top targets at defensive tackle.

Things are starting to work themselves out on the recruiting trail. It's time to start looking more intently on Oklahoma's "wish list" for the Class of 2015.

Here is an idea of where OU stands in July. The number in parentheses indicates the number of recruits OU is looking to sign at the position for the Class of 2015. The names in no way reflect OU's official board but are the best guesstimate of who OU is targeting.

With it only being the summer, all of these are with offered prospects. Later in the cycle we'll return to guessing who might deserve an offer down the road.

Defense

DT (2)

Committed (1): Jenks (Okla.) High's Marquise Overton. A lifelong OU fan, it was just a matter of when OU was going to make the offer. Understanding there are limited amount of spots for OU at this position, Overton waited less than two months after the offer to go ahead and decide to commit. Everything has been pretty smooth ever since the pledge.

Favorite: None. But don't panic as there are plenty of options.

Next in line: Cypress (Texas) Falls' Du'Vonta Lampkin. Things are starting to clear up with Lampkin. He has his top five. He knows his five official visits. He's done talking about schools that don't really want him as much. The former OU commit is still in good standing with the Sooners, and OU easily made his final five cut. It doesn't happen often, but it seems OU could earn his pledge a second time.

Dallas Bishop Dunne's Darrion Daniels. It has been a while since there has been some notable news with Daniels and the Sooners. OU was among his first offers, and he has already seen the campus. The offers have started to pile up in a hurry for Daniels so it's obviously crucial to get him back to Norman sometime soon.

On the radar: Honolulu (Hawaii) Farrington's Breiden Fehoko. Committed to Texas Tech, Fehoko has talked of still visiting OU. With the family connection with the Red Raiders, though, going to be one tough cookie to crack. If any school is going to make him second guess his decision, it does feel like OU has the best chance.
