The recruiting weekend at Oklahoma was already big. It just got a whole lot bigger.
One of the main reasons is because more California prospects are on their way to Norman for the TCU game as five-star athlete Adoree' Jackson, four-star linebacker Dwight Williams and possibly three-star defensive end Olajuwon Tucker, all from Gardena (Calif.) Serra, are expected on campus.
They will join five-star all-purpose back Joe Mixon, Fresno (Calif.) Central East teammates Michiah Quick and Tashon Smallwood, Lompoc, Calif., defensive tackle Ainuu Taua and possibly Oklahoma commit Dallis Todd.

"Adoree' and Dwight are definitely going," a source at Gardena Serra said Tuesday afternoon. "They're working on the plane ticket for Boodah (Tucker) right now."
Oklahoma has accomplished a feat no other school in the country has yet this season - getting both five-star prospects from California - Jackson and Mixon - on campus for an official visit at the same time.
Mixon, who has already visited Cal and Washington, has maintained Oklahoma as one of his favorites throughout the recruiting process as his list has been switched up numerous times. After narrowing it to a select few, UCLA has seemed to make a push back on it after friend Adarius Pickett committed there. Washington was off the favorites list but is apparently on again after a good visit last weekend.
Jackson, the top overall player in California who is dynamic on offense, defense and special teams, still has a list of 12 favorites with the Sooners on it. He took unofficial trips to Tennessee, Florida and Illinois this summer and said he's leaning toward not taking official visits to the same schools.
The five-star athlete is strongly considering a trip to LSU and others but he has not scheduled anything else yet.
Williams, who's looking at Florida, UCLA, Georgia, Michigan and others, has made it clear from the beginning he'd be more than willing to travel to play college football. This is also his first official visit but one is also booked to Florida for the Florida State weekend.
Tucker already has 52 tackles including eight sacks through five games this season. He's really come on this year and has Arizona State, Utah and Miami as three early favorites.
Oklahoma already has tremendous relationships at Fresno Central East so that cannot hurt with Quick and Smallwood, a previous USC commit.
