Think USC was left reeling after Max Redfield (left) decommitted this week? Not really. The Trojans appear to be zeroing in on Leon McQuay III (right). And then there's the nation’s No. 1 recruit, Robert Nkemdiche, who decommitted Thursday. It's an open market in this week’s #BlueChipBattles Insider.

ESPN 150 OT Tunsil names top five 

April, 24, 2012

One of the most anticipated arrivals for Sunday's NFTC was that of the nation's top-rated offensive lineman, Laremy Tunsil (Lake City, Fla./Columbia).

Tunsil, the No. 3 overall prospect in the ESPN 150, has kept his recruitment close to the vest but was willing to reveal his top five Sunday.
Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. Three of Oklahoma's four commits were included in the initial ESPN 150 for the class of 2013, and all four of the Sooners' commits have been evaluated as four-star prospects. Running backs Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./American Heritage-Boca Delray) and Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas/Ranch), along with defensive end D.J. Ward (Lawton, Okla./Lawton) are Nos. 29, 36 and 93 in the ESPN 150, respectively. As expected, Ward is the state's top recruit of the class. Look for more evaluations of in-state prospects soon.

2. Five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil (Lake City, Fla./Columbia) -- the No. 3 overall prospect in the country -- surprised many by including the Sooners in his top five on Tuesday afternoon. Tunsil has offers from nearly every top program in the nation and included Georgia, LSU, Alabama and Florida as his other favorites. Do the Sooners have a shot here? It's doubtful, but we'll find out soon. Based on how OU offensive tackles coach Bruce Kittle recruited for the class of 2012, he believes the Sooners have a chance with prominent out-of-state offensive tackles like Tunsil.

Bob Przybylo breaks down the most recent OU offers for the class of 2013:

• In Oklahoma’s two junior days, the Sooners hosted several wide receivers from the state of Texas. OU only offered one in Jacorey Warrick (Houston/Cypress Falls). Warrick eventually committed to the Longhorns.

As junior day recruits such as Quan Jones (Wylie, Texas/East) and Eldridge Massington (Mesquite, Texas/West) continue to pile up top offer after top offer, the Sooners still have not extended their offer.
