GoPokes TV: Brey Walker

Brey Walker of Southmoore High School is one of the state's top sophomores.

Recruiters, including those from Oklahoma State, will have to wait a little while but there are plenty of reason why Southmoore is tearing up competition on the west side of the state in Class 6A-Division I in Oklahoma.

Defensive end Noah Jones (6-4, 270) is a senior committed to Texas Tech, but it was a sophomore pair of prospective college prospects and a junior two-way player that really impressed us Thursday night. Southmoore fell behind 7-0 and then proceeded to rout a fairly solid Mustang team 52-14 on Thursday night at Moore Schools Stadium.

On offense, the Sabercats have a mountain of a lineman in Brey Walker. Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy was the first to offer Walker as a freshman that started for Southmoore last season. The now 6-5, 300-pound Walker is number 70 in the video and he had several pancakes that we saw. He often times sealed off his man and also another defender on plays.

He is pretty athletic and moves well for  young player that is so big. No doubt his wrestling experience helps some with that. Gundy and Oklahoma State offered first but the sophomore tackle now has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Michigan, OU, and SMU. 

Walker blocks for a very talented quarterback and athlete in Casey Thompson. His older brother, Kendall, was a quarterback at OU that transferred and is now playing at Utah. The 6-1, 180-pound younger Thompson looks to be perhaps more talented than his older brother. He already has offers from Oregon State, Arkansas State, and SMU. Oklahoma State is among a long list of schools showing interest. 

Last season he threw for 1,180 yards and 10 touchdowns while also rushing for 553 yards and five scores. This season he came into the Mustang game with 1,473 yards passing on 93-of-139 with 18 touchdowns and only three interceptions. He also had 77 carries for 503 yards with a 6.5 yards per carry average and seven touchdowns. He added another early against Mustang. 

You will see in the video he completes a pass and then comes right back and scrambles on the next play and turns that into a 53-yard touchdown run. You will also see another run and then a hand-off to senior running back Darrian Moss (5-9, 175), who goes for a long gain that set up yet another Thompson touchdown run. 

Not featured in the video is receiver and linebacker/safety prospect Gervarrius Owens. The 6-2, 180-pound junior is a hard hitter that came in Thursday night with 43 tackles, 23 unassisted. He leads the Sabercats in sacks with four, one of those in the game with Mustang. He also has 7 tackles for loss and three fumble recoveries.

I think Owens will be one of the better prospects in the state in the class of 2017. There is no doubt that Walker and Thompson will be two of the best in the class of 2018.
