OKPreps class deep for 2016

Offers going out seemingly every single day with top prospects in the state.

Edmond (Okla.) Santa Fe safety/outside linebacker Calvin Bundage is the only Oklahoma high school prospect in the Scout 300.

Bundage, who leads the state in offers and is approaching the 20-offer mark, is No. 228 in the latest rankings.

It’s possible Bundage will remain the only OKPreps recruit in the list. But that doesn’t mean the state isn’t producing an alarmingly number of quality prospects for the 2016 class.

What the class is lacking in being top-heavy, it’s more than making up with recruits not just getting quality offers but Power 5 conference offers in the last few weeks.

The Sooners have one in-state commit with Tulsa Victory Christian linebacker Jon-Michael Terry, but any number of these guys could eventually become OU commits down the road. Terry said he is going to return to OU next weekend for the spring game.

What’s most impressive about the run the recruits have been on is that the spring evaluation period doesn’t begin for another two weeks. That should only see even more offers and prospects break on through.

Here is a look at some of the notable movers and shakers in the state in the last month.

Jenks S/OLB Austin Quillen

You have to start with Quillen, who is approaching double-digit offers at this time. The ones that stand out in the last couple of weeks are Vanderbilt and Iowa. He was at OU’s junior day, but he’s going to have plenty of options to choose from.

Lone Grove RB Jeremy Lewis

Arkansas State helped him get back in focus, but his recruitment went through a major change with an offer from Nebraska earlier this week. Lewis is positioning himself as the top running back in a loaded group at the position for this class.

Jenks ATH Dillon Stoner

As good as a job as OU has done in its backyard, there are times Arkansas has been able to swoop in early first and make the move. The Razorbacks did it last year with Austin Cantrell and could be on their way again with Stoner. Arkansas is his big offer right now, but it might be the only one he needs.

Del City QB Terry Wilson

Wilson was able to showcase his stuff at the Opening regional, and he definitely helped his stock. He’s added Memphis and UNLV offers since that event and had a great time at Houston’s junior day last weekend. April should only see more interest come his way.

Mustang QB Chandler Garrett

The first offer is in with Air Force, but the real question is will OU come calling? The Sooners are heavily pursuing Garrett, and he could absolutely have an OU offer at this point next month. Schools are jumping into the mix like crazy right now, and his recruitment is finally starting to equal his on-field productivity.

Moore Southmoore DE Noah Jones

Jones got on the offer board in the last month with a couple of quality ones and then things got even better when Kansas State offered last week. He was at OU’s first junior day, and spring evaluation period will be very kind to Jones.

Stillwater WR Jordan Brown

Right after the OKPreps top 25 was released, Brown was offered by Texas Tech. He was at LSU’s junior day and has added a couple of offers since. Brown is making his case for why he’ll be the No. 1 receiver in the state for 2016.

Norman North RB Quan Hogan

It was a two-offer week last week for Hogan with Toledo and Colorado State. The interest for Hogan is starting to increase, but it still feels like the best is yet to come, or at least it should be for the versatile back.

Tulsa Lincoln Christian QB Micah Wilson

Wilson’s offer sheet is picking up steam. Ranked the No. 1 QB by Sooners Illustrated last month, Wilson now has his first four offers. OU isn’t showing too much interest yet, but it sounds like the other in-state schools, Oklahoma State and Tulsa, will come knocking on his door.

Oklahoma City Heritage Hall OL Luther Harris

Weight is going to be the major thing when it comes to Harris. He’s around 360 pounds right now, and he knows he has to get down to at least 330 or so for things to really start picking up. His first offer is in the books with Tulsa, and he intends to visit an OU practice during this spring period.

Oologah LB Jimmy McKinney

The only disappointment is McKinney unable to get to the Opening regional because it would have been a great chance to see where he stands. As is, McKinney is racking up the offers and hitting all the junior days he can.

Hollis OL Jace Webb

Yet another offensive lineman to be on the watch for. Sooners Illustrated is getting acquainted with Webb now, who reports four offers at this moment, including North Texas and Ohio. Another name to know going forward.

Broken Arrow OL Rowdy Frederick

Frederick could not compete at the Opening regional because of a hamstring injury. Healed up, Frederick won OL MVP at the Rivals camp in Dallas last weekend. He visited OU’s second junior day and is definitely an offer candidate for the Sooners.

2017 Collinsville LB Levi Draper

Yes, the first offer is in for the 2017 class. Collinsville linebacker Levi Draper is a name to get to know now. He visited TCU last weekend and was offered by Louisville earlier this week. He’ll certainly be among the top names in OKPreps for 2017.
