In focus: Jenks

No school has more tradition than Jenks as the Trojans are ready to reload with more top prospects.

The OKPreps spring football season is here, and is hitting the road to see the top prospects in the state of Oklahoma.


DL Marquise Overton

A lot of the pieces are gone from the school that has won back-to-back championships. But at Jenks they don't rebuild, they reload. And the leader of this group is certainly going to be Overton, a Scout 300 prospect already committed to Oklahoma. Overton was an absolute force up the middle last season and should only draw more attention, more double teams this season. He has gone from being somebody with potential to somebody who is filling out perfectly and will be a great addition to OU's roster with his ability. Unfortunately, Overton not participating this spring because still recovering from torn labrum. He said he should be ready to go for summer conditioning.

RB Darwin Thompson

It's almost out of pure reflex to put the Jenks running back as a player to watch. Even if their recruitment isn't huge or even if most people haven't heard of them, the Trojans know how to deliver incredible running backs. Thompson somehow found time last year in a ridiculously loaded running back group at Jenks. A couple of those big names are gone, which should allow for Thompson to make his own impression.

2016 DB Austin Quillen

Quillen got to learn from the best and now we'll see how he does. Not bad having to watch Oklahoma State signee Dylan Harding and Oklahoma signee Steven Parker every single day and going against them and getting better. Don't expect the offers to come this early, but it will be intriguing to see what Quillen has learned from being a part of such a monster defense.

2016 QB Cooper Nunley

He'll have to grow a bit to get more in the conversation going forward, but the spot is all his after the departure of Scotty Gilkey to Broken Arrow. He led Jenks to one championship already and fared well at the Elite 11 QB regional earlier this month.
