The Oakley (Calif.) Freedom five-star running back, Joe Mixon, names his final three schools...

Oakley (Calif.) Freedom running back Joe Mixon will make his college commitment in two weeks when the five-star announces at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

On Saturday afternoon, Mixon took to twitter to announce the final three schools he's choosing from.

"Top 3: Wisconsin, Oklahoma, UCLA," Mixon tweeted.

Mixon said those would be the three hats on the table when he commits in San Antonio.

With over 50 offers and with all five official visits taken, Mixon narrowed it down to two schools he visited officially and one he took a couple of unofficials to.

Mixon visited Oklahoma officially on October 5 and followed it up with an official to Wisconsin the next week. He then visited UCLA unofficially on November 23.

Surprisingly, Cal, the local school, didn't make the final short list for Mixon.

The No. 1 running back in the West, Mixon is ranked No. 5 nationally at the position and the No. 18 prospect overall in the country by Scout.com.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOX Sports, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
