There is no question about the talent Oklahoma will be getting from its 2012 class. With skill players such as wide receiver Durron Neal (St. Louis/De Smet Jesuit) and running back Alex Ross (Jenks, Okla./Jenks), and linemen such as guard John Michael McGee (Texarkana, Texas/Texas) and center Ty Darlington (Apopka, Fla./Apopka), the Sooners' offensive class is stacked.

What Oklahoma does need -- as we head into the final two months before National Signing Day -- is help on defense. Of OU's 15 verbal commits, only five are on defense.

Here are the top five positions of need for the rest of the Sooners' 2012 class.
