Oklahoma Sooners: Jackson Dillon

NORMAN, Okla. -- Before Friday, Oklahoma was finally riding a wave of positive recruiting momentum. December was a banner month for the Sooners, who added five verbal commitments.

It wasn't just about getting five commits, it was about the positions OU added. Four combined at offensive and defensive tackle alleviated panic for Sooners fans.

But then Friday happened. It remains to be seen if the 41-13 blowout loss to Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl will put a damper on recruiting for OU, but it certainly didn't help matters. And then Sunday happened with a big-time shocker and blow to the class when ESPN 300 linebacker Jordan Mastrogiovanni (Dallas/Jesuit) flipped his commitment from OU to Texas A&M.

Heading into the final month until national signing day, OU has 17 commits with another 5-7 spots still available.

To start, OU is not pursuing any quarterbacks, running backs, interior offensive linemen, defensive ends or kickers. The Sooners are content there for this class. But at the other spots, there is still some work to do.
