Wariboko ready to represent OU

OU commit Josh Wariboko knows when he takes the field, he's not just representing his high school anymore. He's part of the Sooner family.

There will be Oklahoma high school scrimmages going all over the state Thursday and Friday, but it's the real thing for Oklahoma City Casady and Class of 2015 Oklahoma commit offensive guard Josh Wariboko.

Because Oklahoma City Casady is not in the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association, its association's rules are different, and the Cyclones will start their season against rival Tulsa (Okla.) Holland Hall on Friday night.

"Our guys are excited, and I'm excited to see what we do," Oklahoma City Casady coach Koby Scoville said. "Josh has had a great summer. He's focused, and we're expecting big things from him this season."

Wariboko, No. 103 in the Scout 300 for the 2015 class, will be in a different environment Friday. No longer an unknown, all eyes will be on him since his pledge to the Sooners.

But Wariboko, an offensive guard, said he is not worried about that. In fact, he is embracing all the added attention.

"I know it's going to be a little different," Wariboko said. "But that's OK. I'm representing OU and Casady when I go out there now. I'm ready."

One other name to watch for Oklahoma City Casady is going to be wide receiver Denver Johnson. A Class of 2015 prospect, Johnson has worked the latter part of the summer with QuickTwitch training and said he has been surprised at how well he has developed.

A legit 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, Johnson camped at OU, Oklahoma State, among numerous other schools.

Note: The game starts at 7:30, and Sooners Illustrated will be there to provide Twitter updates.
