OKPreps top 25 for 2015: Top five

Sooners Illustrated concludes its countdown with the top five in the state for 2015.

It has been three months since SoonersIllustrated.com revealed its top 25 for the state of Oklahoma. A lot has happened. Some new names have entered the fold. Some, obviously, had to drop out, while others have seen their stock soar in the last 90 days.

Without further ado, the top five prospects of the second edition of the top 25 for 2015.

No. 1 Lawton offensive guard Jalin Barnett (6-4, 290)

Previous ranking: No. 1

Nothing changes. Barnett is still the cream of the crop. Wariboko and Sunderland are charging fast, especially after fantastic camp performances. But Barnett has never really been a camp recruit. He's a game recruit, and it showed it in an outstanding junior season. With schools like Oklahoma, Stanford and Alabama, among numerous others, throwing their hat into the ring, Barnett has his choice of any school he wants to attend.

No. 2 Oklahoma City Casady offensive guard Josh Wariboko (6-3, 305)

Previous ranking: No. 2

The gap is a lot closer than it was in February. Wariboko has seemingly only gotten bigger since the winter, and he was impressive in multiple camp settings. Committed to Oklahoma since June, Wariboko pulled the plug on that commitment in April and has picked up huge offers since that time. No recruit in the state has as many offers as Wariboko, but the key to his recruitment might be his younger brother as Wariboko would love to play with him at the next level.

No. 3 Midwest City safety Will Sunderland (6-3, 185)

Previous ranking: No. 3

His story is starting to sound familiar with that of Steven Parker last year. A solid prospect whose first offer is Oklahoma before their junior seasons. Camp performances that turn heads and have people wondering how good they can be. Parker ended up as the top prospect in the state last year and signed with the Sooners. Sunderland could certainly be on the same track although Ohio State is among the non-regional schools that are going to make a huge run at him.

No. 4 Jenks defensive tackle Marquise Overton (6-2, 301)

Previous ranking: No. 4

The tendency is to drop Overton, but there's no real reason behind it. Overton is a quiet recruit who doesn't say too much. He doesn't travel to any camps, and he doesn't really look at visiting other schools so he gets lost in the shuffle. But all you have to do is watch what he did as a junior in helping leading Jenks to another state championship. He dreamed of being a Sooner, and it's a reality.

No. 5 Moore Westmoore wide receiver Dahu Green (6-3, 185)

Previous ranking: No. 6

All Green is waiting for is that offer that blows him away. Next to Wariboko, no other prospect in the state has more offers than Green. And though Green appreciates all the offers, he's waiting for that big one to help separate things in the process. Green had great camp outings and showed he can run routes and has quality speed to go with that natural size. The spring was kind to Green, and these two weeks of spring football should help him as well.
