Signing Day 2010 is behind us and the Sooners racked up a Top Five class. Here are my OU Top 10 picks to click:

10) Chuka Ndulue (DL, Dallas) - He went head-to-head against Jackson Jeffcoat in high school and more than held his own. Part of a big crop of d-linemen in this class.

9) Tony Jefferson (DB, Chula Vista, CA) - Great athlete. Great speed. Played some linebacker in high school. Has the makings of being a perfect "Roy-backer."

8) Bronson Irwin (OL, Mustang) - The Sooners needed o-linemen and got five good ones. Bronson is already on campus. Smart kid who I think will be a fixture at guard for years to come.

7) Corey Nelson (LB, Dallas) - This signing day coup. OU is thin at linebacker. Nelson is a five-star kid who might get a chance to play right away.

6) Trey Millard (TE, Columbia, MO) - OU coaches love this kid. A Brody Eldridge do-everything clone who is also a published poet.

5) Justin McCay (WR, Shawnee Mission, KS) - Big 6'4 pass catcher who has been compared to Malcolm Kelly. Could play as a freshman with Broyles and Miller adn Reynolds.

4) Austin Haywood (TE, Southmoore) - Bob Stoops says he reminds many Sooner coaches of Keith Jackson. 6'5 wide-body tight end with soft hands.

3) Roy Finch (RB, Niceville, FL) - Only 5'8, but super-quick. A Quentin Griffin type who will be a fan favorite.

2) Blake Bell (QB, Wichita) - Will someday take the reigns from Landry Jones as the next OU signal caller. 6'6, big arm, tremendous athlete, everything you want in a prototype QB.

1) Brennan Clay (RB, San Diego) - Great runner and pass catcher. Will be a Heisman contender before his career is done. And has a personality that will make him a media darling.
