OU camp: day one breakdown

NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated updates the key news and notes from the first day at OU's annual camp.

Four quick hitters:

1. Though there was a lot of action on the field, a prime 2015 visitor stole the show—Impressive outside linebacker prospect Ricky DeBerry, out of St. Christopher's School in Richmond, Va., was given the prime treatment by OU's coaching staff. They took every opportunity to show him some of their program by exposing him to the camp. DeBerry took in a lot of the afternoon at the Everest Indoor Center, then took over to the practice field behind Oklahoma Memorial Stadium for some of the evening session. You could tell this was a high priority on this day.

2. Offensive tackle Anthony Woods excelled as the best overall prospect—While the crop of really elite prospects is yet to come Sunday, this guy really stood out. A local product from Midwest City, he showed great footwork and a relentless motor at the tackle position. His recruitment could pick up.

3. Offensive guard Josh Wariboko turned lots of heads, too—This guy is highly respected, according to sources close to the program, and you could see why today. Wariboko, standing in at 6-foot-3, 300 pounds, showed for the same reasons as Woods that he could have been the best prospect out there at the time. He fought against the best competition of the day and did very well.

4. Edmond Memorial's Lamanuel Singleton joined the fray as well—If two impressive linemen specimen isn't enough, maybe three is. Singleton has room to grow in terms of filling out his frame and developing better technique, but the tools appear to be there. He's one to keep an eye on.

Stay tuned for more tomorrow as the elite prospect camp takes place.
