Christmas felt like it came early for Oklahoma in the last two weeks with commitments of offensive tackles Christian Daimler (Houston/Stratford) and ESPN JC 100 prospect Josiah St. John (Athens, Texas/Trinity Valley).

Add in the commitment of three-star defensive tackle Kerrick Huggins (Dallas/Skyline) and the signing of ESPN JC 100 defensive tackle Quincy Russell (Athens, Texas/Trinity Valley), and it has been a banner couple of weeks for the Sooners.

But OU isn’t done yet. OU coach Bob Stoops said the Sooners weren’t done -- not by a longshot. So in the spirit of the season, here is OU’s recruiting Christmas list to close out the 2013 class.

ATH Adrian Baker (Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade-Madonna, 6-1, 165, No. 198 ESPN 300)

Following his visit to OU, Baker decommitted from Florida State. Is that a sign of things to come? Too early to know, but Baker would be a huge boost to OU at wide receiver or cornerback.

It’s going to be a marathon with Baker in January between Clemson and OU. He made official visits to both campuses in December, and both schools will make in-home visits with Baker in the next month.

Baker can contribute on either side of the ball. Bottom line, though, is he can contribute.

OT Aaron Cochran (Atwater, Calif./Buhach, 6-8, 364, No. 22 OT)

It will be tough for Sooners to get Cochran out of the west coast, but OU is certainly giving it a try. Cochran made an official visit to OU in November, and OU coaches Bruce Kittle and Bob Stoops have already made visits to the mammoth tackle.

Nebraska, Cal and Arizona are also in the mix. Cochran’s older brother, Matt, just finished his freshman season with the Bears.

S Tyler Foreman (Encino, Calif./Crespi Carmelite, 6-2, 161, No. 32 S, Committed to Wisconsin)

With all the coaching changes at Wisconsin, why can’t the Sooners get back into the race for Foreman? UCLA has picked up its intensity in a major way since Bret Bielema left Wisconsin to go to Arkansas.

Foreman made an official visit to OU in September, and OU defensive backs coach Mike Stoops was among the first coaches to notice the type of potential Foreman has.

DT Toby Johnson (Hutchinson, Kan./Hutchinson CC, 6-4, 305, No. 4 ESPN JC 100)

It’s going to be tough to see the Sooners pull this one out, but OU defensive tackles coach Jackie Shipp is on a roll right now following Huggins and Russell.

Shipp hasn’t given up on Johnson, another player who could make an immediate impact. But it feels like Georgia is in the lead. The Sooners are in fantastic shape for Garland (Texas ) South Garland tackle Charles Walker. He picked up an OU offer last week and will visit OU on Jan. 11.

LB Mike Mitchell (Plano, Texas/Prestonwood Christian, 6-4, 216, No. 121 ESPN 150)

OU looks like it’s set at linebacker for 2013. But this is a wish list, right? And if Mitchell looked like he wanted to head to Norman, nobody in their right mind would pass that up.

OU linebackers coach Tim Kish has developed a solid rapport with Mitchell, but Ohio State has jumped on Mitchell. And without a bowl game to prepare for, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer has been able to spend a lot of quality time with Mitchell.
