The Oklahoma Sooners staked a claim to the best recruiting class in the Big 12 with their 22 players landed on National Signing Day. But Lincoln Riley's team could make an even bigger leap if they can land one skill player who might be interested.

According to 247Sports, 5-star WR Jadon Haselwood, the No. 6 overall prospect and No. 1 WR in the country, is now a favorite to pick Oklahoma over previous favorites Georgia and Miami.

Per the source, Haselwood is now 57% likely to choose the Sooners, though his player page indicates it has climbed as high as 68%.

247Sports noted that while Haselwood has 17 open offers, he has apparently whittled his list down to five schools: Oklahoma, Georgia, Miami, Florida State, and Tennessee.

Oklahoma already boasts a first-rate class of skill players, having landed 5-star WR Theo Wease and 4-star WR Trejan Bridges. Both players are top-10 at their position and top-60 in the country. Haselwood's signature to a letter of intent would be an incredible cherry on top.

As of Thursday, 247Sports rates Oklahoma's recruiting class as No. 6 in the nation, and the best in the Big 12 Conference.

Stay tuned.
