Default Review my recipe? Hefeweizen Extract

I'll be doing this as my second batch this weekend. I took the original recipe for "Golden Path Hefeweizen" posted on this site and tweaked it a little bit using BeerSmith. This is my first time using this program as well.

I increased my boil volume to 4 gallons (in a 5 gallon kettle), tweaked the recipe for a late extract addition, and reduced some of the extract to meet BeerSmith's recommended OG calculation for this beer style. Here's what I came up with.

Everything look ok? Anything I might want to tweak in this recipe before brewing?

Sounds good except why the oatmeal? If you are using standard German "ingredients" there's no need.

Fermenting at the lower temps may give you more cloves than banana falvor/odor. I usually go for 70F, but it's whatever you're looking for.

Keep us informed of the results.

The oatmeal was part of the original recipe. I didn't think of any need to alter or remove it.
