Second week of scrimmages for Oklahoma high schools usually feature one of the best ones in the state in the Mustang Pigskin Preview.
The teams are a little bit different this year, but the talent is still the same. A rundown of who to watch Thursday evening at Mustang.
Anadarko vs. Piedmont
Sapulpa vs. Norman North
Elk City vs. Mustang JV
Mustang vs. Oklahoma City Bishop McGuinness
Sapulpa RB Dae Williams
Williams has finally arrived on the recruiting scene. Committed to SMU in the summer, it’s all about finishing strong for Williams as a senior. He was getting some looks by OU at linebacker, but nobody can blame him for wanting to be a running back at the next level and SMU is a great place to do so.
2017 McGuinness WR Rubell Goe
One name that is circled for tonight is Goe. He looked very good at OU’s elite camp in the summer and could be well on his way toward becoming the state’s best receiver prospect for the 2017 class. A great showcase opportunity.
Mustang QB Chandler Garrett
Garrett still might be the most under the radar quarterback in the area, but that’s OK because he has found his home. Garrett committed to Wyoming during the summer and is all-in with the Cowboys. A great senior season could improve his stock, but he’s not likely to go anywhere.
Mustang TE Blake Williams
The wild card of the evening. Williams has battled so much health issues at Mustang, but when he’s good to go, there are few better prospects. He showed up at North Carolina and put on such a show he was offered right then and there. OU has zero tight end prospects right now, could Williams become one?
Sooners Illustrated saw Norman North last week so it’s the same cast of characters this week. Not that it’s bad, but we’ve already profiled names like Quan Hogan, Walker Reed, Charlie Kolar, Cade Mashburn and the Stoops twins, Isaac and Drake. It will be another opportunity to see if the sophomore twins are ready for varsity at the top OKPreps level.
