The Oklahoma Sooners got a national letter of intent from one of the two Jeffcoats they're recruiting Wednesday.


Plano West post Jacqueline Jeffcoat put her name in ink for the Sooners, turning down offers from Arizona State, Louisville and Georgia.


The senior is the twin sister of Plano West defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat, who is the No. 1 ranked football recruit in the nation according to the ESPNU 150, and the daughter of former Dallas Cowboys player Jim Jeffcoat.


While Sooner football fans hope Jackson will follow his sister, West head coach girls basketball coach Bob Patterson said he doubts that will weigh in to his decision.


"I asked her about that she said 'Na, he's on his own coach. He'll go wherever he wants to go,'" Patterson said. "Who knows?"


Jacqueline Jeffcoat (6-2) averaged 7.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game in 2008-09, leading West to the Class 5A regional quarterfinals. On ESPNU 100, she is ranked No. 41 overall and the No. 4 center nationally.


"She can run the floor and has a nice outside shot," Patterson said. "She's getting better and better inside. I think they'll play her on the perimeter but we use her inside. I think she'll fit in pretty good there."
