Rank Name Pos Location Stars Ht Wt School
Miguel AdesokanATH
Tulsa, OKVictory Christian

Adesokan is part of a very talented, but as of yet unknown, collection of talent at Tulsa Victory Christian. He could end up as a fullback but as of now still has room to grow.

6'1"210list
Tyler BantaOL
Midwest City, OKCarl Albert

For all of Carl Albert's success there hasn't exactly been a bevy of division one talent to come out of Gary Rose's program. However, like every other program, nowhere has top talent been harder to find than along the lines. Banta is a player who could feature on either side of the line but makes a lot of plays along the defensive line currently. An active defender with a great motor, keep an eye on Banta and expect a big junior year for the Titans.

6'5"280list
Sheldon BarnesOL
Jenks, OKJenks

Barnes is the first 'boom or bust' player on this list. He has a great frame, great footwork and all the ability needed to be Jenks' next quality recruit. The problem for him is whether or not he is willing to put the work in to live up to his potential. If he wants to, Barnes could be a big-time part of this class.

6'5"330list
Tariq BitsonWR
Tulsa, OKBooker T. Washington

Bitson is a player that some of his opposing coaches can't stop raving about. He isn't the overwhelming athlete that some of his Hornets predecessors were but he is a smooth athlete who catches the ball well and is most at home working intermediate routes.

6'3"190list
Jaylind BrothersWR
Tulsa, OKEast Central

Brothers is maybe the most raw prospect on this list but there are few prospects in the state who can match him for frame and inherent ability. Brothers is physically reminiscent of former Jenks star Jordan Smallwood with his ability to move defensive backs away from himself.

6'1"180list
Jordan BrownWR
Stillwater, OKStillwater

A big physical specimen Brown isn't that well known yet but shows considerable potential. Hopefully we can see him in person this season and get a better feel for one of the two star receivers for the Pioneers.

6'3"195list
Keats CalhoonQB
Tulsa, OKVictory Christian

Calhoon is the first of several quarterbacks on this list and has been well known since he was a high school freshman.

6'3"175list
Jordan DavisDB
Broken Arrow, OKBroken Arrow

Davis has been talked about around Broken Arrow for a while now and this spring showed signs that he might be finally ready for the spotlight. Whether it was at running back or as a safety/outside linebacker Davis made a ton of plays at the Metro Team Camp in Mustang. It's likely on the defensive side of the ball where he'll find himself in college and his explosive ability could see him pick up plenty of attention.

5'10"185list
Breyden DeSpainWR
Oologah, OKOologah

Despain isn't well known yet but is a guy who could play any number of positions in the college game. He stars at WR for an Oologah program that has quietly been highly successful over the past few years. Despain is a guy whose junior year could say a lot about his future - could he stick at wide receiver or ends up as a linebacker/safety type?

6'2"185list
T.J. FiailoaOL
Lawton, OKMacArthur

Fiailoa wasn't well known until he showed up at the Metro Team Camp and just dominated all comers. He is a mauling offensive guard who has better feet than one might expect and is a solid overall athlete. Don't be surprised if a lot of programs take a shine to him going forward.

3 stars6'4"330list
Rowdy FrederickOL
Broken Arrow, OKBroken Arrow

Another Broken Arrow Tiger that had people talking early in his career, Frederick hadn't done much to live up to the early expectations. He had often been overweight and out of shape and it showed. This winter he rededicated himself and it has shown. Frederick showed nastiness and the ability to work against some top flight talent - don't be surprised when offers start rolling in.

3 stars6'5"316list
Chandler GarrettQB
Mustang, OKMustang

Even Garrett will tell you, he is a Friday night player. Having seen him at various camps, various days of practice, and the like he just hasn't shined. However in live game settings he just never stops making plays. Garrett has tons of natural ability both with his feet as with his arm and once he can be a consistent player every snap schools will take more and more of a shine to him.

3 stars6'4"210list
Scotty Ray GilkeyQB
Broken Arrow, OKBroken Arrow

Gilkey is yet another talented quarterback in this group of in-state stars and in spite of all of the talent they each have, his arm is as live as any guy the state has produced in quite some time.

3 stars6'4"203list
Luther HarrisOL
Oklahoma City, OKHeritage Hall

Harris is just a mountain of a young guy. He needs to work on his conditioning to be a guy worth discussing going forward. However, his measurables and natural ability are impossible to ignore. If he can get himself going he might really have something.

6'5"310list
Justice HillRB
Tulsa, OKBooker T. Washington

Hill is a big-time athlete who already has a bunch of folks at Booker T. talking about him like the next big star. Hill is a smooth athlete with real speed who could be a running back or a cornerback depending on the program who is involved with him.

3 stars5'10"185Oklahoma St.
Quan HoganRB
Norman, OKNorth

Hogan is another one of those players that seems stuck between positions. It's not a certainty that he can be a running back at the same level of programs that he could play in a fullback role. Regardless Hogan is a big prospect with great feet and a great frame. It's just about finding where he fits on a college roster.

3 stars6'0"199list
Noah JonesDE
Moore, OKSouthmoore

Jones is one of the most interesting prospects in the entire state. His huge frame and impressive early contributions make him a guy that college coaches are flocking toward. The interesting thing about Jones, a current tight end/defensive end, is whether he might grow into a premier offensive tackle prospect in the college game.

3 stars6'5"250list
Jeremy LewisRB
Lone Grove, OKLone Grove

Don't know Lewis? You should. A big long running back with speed and an ability to bust through the line of scrimmage and hit a home run. Lewis isn't well known yet but if he keeps building on one huge season after another that won't last.

6'2"185list
DeShawn LookoutWR
Moore, OKWestmoore

The question with Lookout is where his focus is, while he has done plenty already on the football field for the Jaguars he is also an emerging star in baseball and has committed to the Sooners to play both. His primary recruitment is as a baseball player but he is a quality athlete who will pick up football attention before it's all said and done.

6'3"190list
Hayden MooreOL
Duncan, OKDuncan

Another talented in-state offensive lineman, Moore showed up at the RivalsCamp in Dallas and made a strong impression. Definitely an interior guy, Moore is a good athlete who figures to be Duncan's next real FBS prospect over the next 18 months.

6'3"276list
AJ ParkerDB
Bartlesville, OKBartlesville

Parker wasn't known at all prior to about two weeks ago when we stumbled across his film on HUDL. The talented cornerback is a long guy with good feet and natural instincts. He is somewhat reminiscent of former Owasso star Aaron Colvin.

5'11"160list
Austin QuillenDB
Jenks, OKJenks

Quillen is yet another Jenks standout on the list and and the next in line of an ever-growing group of talented Trojan defensive backs. Quillen isn't the biggest safety prospect but is more than wiling to come up and put a helmet on a receiver going across the middle.

3 stars6'0"192list
Walker ReedOL
Norman, OKNorth

A guy that wasn't well known prior to showing up at the RivalsCamp in Dallas and on one of the camp's first OL/DL reps he took on Texas defensive end commitment Charles Omenihu and dominated the 2015 prospect. He is still a work in progress as he tries to fill out his, currently, lanky frame.

6'5"282list
Logan RobersonOL
Harrah, OKHarrah

Thanks to a tip from our old buddy J.D. Runnels we take a look at the mountainous, and mauling, Roberson. He is still working himself into full condition, again with Runnels' help, but if he can do it he could be Harrah's first real prospect in quite some time.

6'5"318list
Shemarr RobinsonDT
Tulsa, OKTulsa Central

Robinson is another name that isn't yet well known but has a great frame and is a good athlete who could play in both a three and four man front. He'll need to get stronger to hold up against power run blockers but he has good feet and lateral movement.

6'3"260list
Brandon ScottOL
Owasso, OKOwasso

Scott isn't a guy we know well enough yet but he did make a strong impression at the Oklahoma State camp earlier this summer. When you add in his prototypical size his potential grows even bigger.

6'6"315list
Quint ScoufosQB
Sallisaw, OKSallisaw

Scoufos is perhaps the least well known of all the quarterbacks around the state but those who have been around players like Archie Bradley rave about Scoufous. Give him time to emerge and continue to develop and Sallisaw may have it's next big star at quarterback to follow the Oberste brothers of recent years.

6'4"235list
Jamall ShawRB
Broken Arrow, OKBroken Arrow

Shaw may have spent last year in Devon Thomas's shadow but probably shouldn't have been. He is a talented back who changes direction well and runs very naturally between the tackles. He doesn't have game-changing speed but is a natural runner who does a nice job sticking his foot in the ground and getting upfield.

5'10"199list
Terrell ShawWR
Lawton, OKLawton

Shaw is a long athlete who is built most like a wide receiver but could also factor in as a future safety. His great length makes him a very interesting receiver working in the air.

6'2"170list
Jon-Michael TerryTE
Tulsa, OKVictory Christian

Terry's film was stumbled onto by accident. While looking at Adesokan, Calhoon, and a few others one couldn't help but notice the athletic tight end. Terry could also feature on the defensive side of the ball but regardless there is real potential in his game.

3 stars6'2"225Oklahoma
Corey TipswordDT
Norman, OKNorth

Tipsword hasn't played much so far in his Norman North career but showed up at Oklahoma's Norman camp in June, took on some big-time guys - including Jalin Barnett - and really dominated all of them. If he can play on Friday like he did on camp don't be surprised to see him become one of the state's most highly recruited prospects.

3 stars6'4"330list
Keaton TorreQB
South Jordan, UTBingham

Torre, currently Rivals.com's top rated player in the state of Oklahoma, wasn't expected to contribute much last year but did well when called on after the injury to Justice Hansen. Torre, at times, last year looked shaky and a but unsure of himself but this spring and summer he looked ready to become a star. If he carries that into the season he'll have far more offers than just his current one from Louisville.

3 stars6'2"183Louisville
Max WaribokoDB
Oklahoma City, OKCasady

Almost undoubtedly the most familiar name in class of 2016 in-state recruiting, Wariboko is an intriguing talent that simply needs to show more of his ability on tape. He is a long defender who figures to end up as a safety in college though he'll need to fill out considerably before then. Wariboko's length in man-to-man coverage makes his potential to reroute receivers in the future a true strength of his game.

3 stars5'10"168list
Dae WilliamsRB
Sapulpa, OKSapulpa

Williams is a powerful back who has already done a lot for Sapulpa. He may not have elite speed but for his size is more than a capable athlete. The surprising thing when watching Williams this summer in Norman was his talent as a receiver. He'll emerge more and more given time.

6'0"205list
Darran WilliamsRB
Edmond, OKSanta Fe

Williams is living, a bit, in the shadow of Torre but his quarterback's ability to open up space for him will only help his production in the future. Williams has real burst and goes from start to top speed in almost no time.

5'10"166list
Micah WilsonQB
Tulsa, OKLincoln Christian School

In what is turning into a broken record, WIlson is another shining star at quarterback in the Sooner state. Wilson is incredibly accurate and highly advanced for a quarterback so young thanks to a quality offense at Lincoln Christian and a family full of college and NFL players.

6'3"200list
Terry WilsonQB
Del City, OKDel City

Perhaps my early favorite for the state's top spot, Wilson's athletic ability is impossible to ignore and though many can see him as a runner few have given him his due as a passer. Wilson is smooth with the ball and is quickly emerging as one of Oklahoma City's most promising young players.
