I know there was a lot of discussion recently about 2016 offensive line prospect Tyler Brown of Lexington, Okla., not exactly a hot bed for Division I football talent. But it's hard to lose a player as big as Brown, and if he gets his academics in order he will be as popular a prospect in this state as any. Looking ahead a year to 2017, a prospect to check out in Meeker's Adrian Wolford.
An offensive tackle and defensive tackle prospect, Wolford has jumped from 6-3, 240 pounds as a freshman to 6-5, 310-pound man-child entering his junior season this next fall. He is young and will graduate at 17 years old as his birthday is July 7 and he will turn 16 years old this summer.
This past week in a team camp and activities in Cushing, Wolford was dominant on both sides of the ball playing defensive tackle (some one and three technique) and he was unbeatable at offensive tackle.
Honestly, he is still really raw and will continue to pick up technique that should help him with both his hands, feet, and leverage. However, physically he is very tough for linemen at that level to handle.
He says his favorite schools are OU, OSU, and Alabama. We will continue to keep a close eye on this mammoth prospect for the 2017 class and our guess is he will be hearing from a lot of coaches very soon.
