Top OU offensive targets in Jr. Scout 300

OU is off to a great start offensively for the Class of 2015. The addition of some of these recruits in the Scout 300 wouldn't hurt, either.

Oklahoma has already picked up two offensive linemen commits in the initial Scout 300 for the Class of 2015. But there are plenty of more targets in the picture.

Here is a look at some of the realistic OU targets on offense.

No. 7 Plano (Texas) West RB Sotonye Jamabo

At OU's satellite camp in Carrollton, Texas, it didn't take long to find Jamabo. All you had to do was look and see where OU coaches Bob Stoops, Josh Heupel and Cale Gundy were. They all flocked to Jamabo although he didn't participate in the camp itself. Like Jefferson, this will be a difficult race to win, but OU is sitting about good as a school can regarding Jamabo at this point.

No. 38 Lawton (Okla.) High OG Jalin Barnett

You want the prospect OU fans have every right to feel the best about? Barnett is your man. He has visited OU four times in four months. His intentions are to be at every single OU game he can. His brother and grandfather are huge OU fans. He has developed the relationship with Bill Bedenbaugh. Everything, and I do mean everything, is pointing in the right direction.

No. 55 Rockwall (Texas) High RB Chris Warren

Warren was a man among boys at OU's camp in June. He showed up to Norman, dominated and earned his offer. Warren has been busy, visiting one top campus after another. But he loves OU's tradition at running back. He attended OU's spring game, and he definitely plans to come back for more visits. Not much more you can ask for than that right now.

No. 115 Cedar Hill (Texas) High WR DaMarkus Lodge

The Sooners are never hurting at wide receiver when it's Jay Norvell doing the recruiting. This surely will be the case again for 2015, but the Sooners are making a nice early impression with Lodge. OU has the commit of his teammate, 2014 cornerback Marcus Green, and Lodge made his first trip to Norman last week and was impressed with Norvell and Bob Stoops.

No. 261 Houston (Texas) Episcopal RB Tyreik Gray

The Sooners are so stacked at running back so it's not a huge concern. Gray has talked about having an OU offer, and it wouldn't be too surprising if that's the case. He's an under the radar running back for the class and his interest should pick up immensely this season.

No. 289 Flower Mound (Texas) Marcus OT Keaton Sutherland

OU isn't hurting with offensive lineman, but Bedenbaugh was very impressed with Sutherland. He made an unofficial visit last week and received his offer. He also has offers from Arkansas and TCU. With how stacked OU's offensive line class is, Sutherland might have to make a decision sooner than later.

No. 298 Upland (Calif.) High QB Tyler Hilinski

Inclement weather denied Hilinski from making a trip to OU for the summer camp. At this point, Hilinski is setting himself up as OU's premier target at the position for the class. Heupel has liked what he has seen early from Hilinski, and he saw the campus a couple of years ago. Another visit will certainly put OU in an even better spot than before.
