The Oklahoma coaches have hit a number of areas during the spring evaluation period. But in these final two weeks, spring football has finally reached the state.
OU coaches should be out in full force seeing some of the best in the state. In this two-day series, Sooners Illustrated is going to look at five recruits to watch on each day.
Here’s the second group of five.
Tulsa Victory Christian LB Jon-Michael Terry
Terry is the lone in-state commit right now, but there are a lot of people who have no idea who Terry is or if they should be excited about his pledge. This spring will be a great opportunity for Terry to showcase his skills. He projects to be a linebacker for the Sooners so it will be interesting to see if he can play that position. Any questions, any doubts OU might have regarding Terry could be wiped away with another look this time around.
Stillwater WR Jordan Brown
You want the best receiver prospect in the state? You’ve got him in Brown. The offers have started to roll in for Brown, including a nice one from Texas Tech. Brown was visited by OU earlier during this spring evaluation period. If an offer is going to happen, it feels like now is the time. The Sooners already have two commits at the position so it will be incredibly intriguing to see where OU’s priorities are going to be moving forward.
Edmond Santa Fe S/OLB Calvin Bundage
Bundage is the No. 1 prospect in the state. He’s the only in-state recruit in the Scout 300. But in the last couple of months, the questions have mounted about who he actually is. Bundage did not camp at the Dallas Opening regional nor did he participate at the Semper Fi regional camp in Oklahoma City so he has been a little bit out of sight and out of mind. He did visit OU for junior day and for the spring game, and he’s a major target for the Sooners and one they don’t want to get away.
2017 Collinsville LB Levi Draper
Draper, based on offers, has made himself the recruit to beat for the 2017 class. Draper already has multiple offers, including some from Power 5 conferences like Louisville and Vanderbilt. Draper was at OU for a spring practice and then came back for the spring game so the relationship is starting to get built. OU also returned to Collinsville a couple of weeks ago, but this will be the chance to see if OU has seen exactly what it needs to pull the trigger and make the offer.
2017 Tulsa Edison DB Marcus Mays
Is Mays the next can’t-miss safety from the state? He has been very active on the visit circuit in the last couple of months but this feels like the time OU should start paying attention. As of now, Mays feels like a pure safety, but it’s not crazy to consider him a cornerback, either. As the 2017 class continues to get more recognition, Mays will be one to circle.
