It's finally here.
No, not the holidays, the high school bowl game season.
And Sooners fans have plenty of reason to watch carefully as numerous presents of Oklahoma's football future will be on display as well as some others who could soon be ready to be under the crimson and cream Christmas tree.

Though for years Oklahoma's attention has centered around the Army All-American Bowl, and to a lesser degree the Under Armour All-American Game, this year there will be a west coast focus with the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl playing host to four Oklahoma commitments and three other prospects who are among Oklahoma's top remaining targets.
Among the commitments are long-time Sooner pledges Marcus Green, Carson Meier, Dallis Todd, and Tito Windham with each player coming in with something to prove.
For Green, the question will be how can he transition to safety a position he did not play for his Cedar Hill, Texas Longhorns on their way to the school's second state title.
Windham will want to show himself as the cornerback that Oklahoma has targeted him at after spending most of his career as a safety and dual-threat quarterback for Gulfport (Miss.) Harrison Central. Windham's size won't help his cause but his natural athleticism could help him surprise some people in Los Angeles.
For Meier, he's long been overlooked in the minds of many around Tulsa Union and with a big performance against some top flight competition maybe Meier can push toward four-stars following a stellar showing in the state title game against Jenks.
And finally Todd struggled through a tough season that saw him come up short against the stout numbers of his junior year but it's his chance to reestablish himself among the nation's elite receivers after slipping out of the Rivals250 in the latest update.
In the game some other key areas of focus will be in-state stars Deondre Clark and Steven Parker along with last month's official visitor Kenyon Frison.
Clark has long been an LSU commitment, as Frison has with Utah, but all three seem to be seriously considering Oklahoma with the Sooners almost undoubtedly in the top two for each.
