There have been players to drop the Sooners from their lists (Arthur Brown); others who have toyed with committing (Daniel Thomas); those who have made surprise trips to Norman (Julio Jones); those who have de-committed (Jeff Fuller and Taylor Hill); and still others who have committed then de-committed (Markelle Martin).
But there's still a core group that numbers more than a dozen who have made their commitments to Oklahoma and still stand by them.
And one of those commitments who has been on board as long as anyone – linebacker Daniel Franklin of Habersham (Ga.) Central – says he's not going anywhere.
"I fell in love with Oklahoma as soon as I visited," Franklin said.
A three-star recruit who is projected as a weakside backer in college, Franklin committed to Oklahoma during his junior year. He received an offer from the Sooners soon after sending them a highlight tape that featured games from his freshman and sophomore seasons and just a few from his junior year.
"I couldn't believe it when they offered me," he said. "And then when I went to Norman, I knew that was the place I wanted to be."
"You go there and there's 85,000 fans going crazy, they have the best coaches in college football and Norman is great," Franklin said. "What more could you want?"
A bigger signing class maybe?
"Oh yeah," he said. "I tried to work a little magic."
