The best of the best in the Midlands region are headed to Arlington (Texas) Lamar this Sunday for the Nike Opening regional camp.
Instead of splitting Texas up into Dallas and Houston camps, all the talent is converging at one spot this year.
There will almost be too much talent to keep track of this weekend, but here are the top OU targets on the offensive side of the ball to watch.
Del City (Okla.) High’s Terry Wilson
2017 Denton (Texas) Guyer’s Shawn Robinson
Argyle (Texas) Liberty Christian’s Nick Starkel
Who to watch? Starkel. Coming off a great trip to OU last weekend, Starkel will participate in the camp before making a west coast trip for spring break that will include a trip to UCLA. Starkel is another pupil of Joe Dickinson, who has a great relationship with OU quarterbacks coach Lincoln Riley. Starkel already has an offer from Oklahoma State.
2017 Wylie (Texas) East’s Eno Benjamin
Houston Stratford’s Rakeem Boyd
Lone Grove (Okla.) High’s Jeremy Lewis
Broken Arrow (Okla.) High’s Jamall Shaw
Beaumont (Texas) Central’s Devwah Whaley
Edmond (Okla.) Santa Fe’s Darran Williams
Houston C.E. King’s Trayveon Williams
Who to watch? Take your pick, but we’ll go with Whaley. Right now Whaley seems like he’s on track to be the No. 1 running back in the state of Texas, and OU certainly takes pride in hitting the Lone Star State for its backs. Whaley was unable to make it to OU’s junior day last weekend so OU will definitely have to be sure he arrives on campus soon.
Arlington (Texas) Lamar’s Kofi Boateng
Navasota (Texas) High’s Tren’Davian Dickson
Missouri City (Texas) Marshall’s Jeremy Smith
Sachse (Texas) High’s Devin Duvernay
Southlake Carroll (Texas) High’s Zach Farrar
Moore (Okla.) Westmoore’s Deshawn Lookout
Dallas First Baptist’s Camron Williams
Who to watch? Boateng. Half of the Arlington Lamar Fab Four is committed, and Boateng is without an OU offer right now. He attended junior day and was told the Sooners would stop back in during spring evaluation period. A great performance here could accelerate things as Boateng continues to rack up offer after offer.
2017 Frisco (Texas) High’s Jack Anderson
Arlington (Texas) Bowie’s Tope Imade
Arlington (Texas) Lamar’s Chris Owens
Copperas Cove (Texas) High’s J.P. Urquidez
2018 Moore (Okla.) Southmoore’s Brey Walker
Broken Arrow (Okla.) High’s Rowdy Frederick
Oklahoma City Heritage Hall’s Luther Harris
Harrah (Okla.) High’s Logan Roberson
Who to watch? Imade. Social media has been very kind to Imade as he has been able to showcase his strength in various short videos on Twitter. Imade visited OU for its first junior day but is without an offer right now. His offer sheet is going to explode during the spring eval period, but it might not take that long if Imade does what he hopes to do this weekend.
