OKPreps tour revisited: Part I

A recap of some of the best names from the OKPreps month-long tour by Sooners Illustrated.

The camp season is over for Oklahoma. Following two weeks of practices and two weeks of camps, summer has officially arrived for the Sooners.

Sooners Illustrated hit the road as much as possible in the last four weeks and will look at six top prospects every day this week as to who stood out the most in the last month.

***Alphabetical order***

2018 Tuttle OT Hunter Anthony

Saw Anthony for two hours at OU’s elite camp last week and now understand why he has been talked about in the same breath as the other top offensive linemen for the 2018 class. Anthony already has an offer from Iowa State and camped at OU and Arkansas in the last week. Don’t be surprised to see that total increase before his junior season.

Collinsville ILB Levi Draper & 2019 Collinsville ATH Grayson Boomer

Cheating a bit on this one. Took a trip to Collinsville, but it was rained out so only got to do a sit down interview with both of them. There’s no questioning with Draper, but it was good to get a real look at why Boomer already has multiple Power 5 conference offers heading into his sophomore season. He certainly passed the eye test with flying colors.

2018 Bixby OT Bryce Bray

Saw Bray at the Mustang Metro Team Camp and the elite camp in Norman and will continue to reiterate this is a prospect that is not missing much from being among the top offensive tackles in the region. Suppose it might just take that one offer to come along and then the rest will follow. Good size, good fundamentals, no clear-cut weaknesses when you watch him.

OKC John Marshall DB Justin Broiles

Kicked off the tour with a trip to John Marshall to watch Broiles. He has never been shy nor had a lack of confidence. But when you add in the fact he’s committed to OU, it’s a whole ‘nother type of swag going on right now with the four-star prospect. Don’t be surprised to see Broiles tear it up on both sides of the field for the Bears this upcoming season.

Tulsa Union CB Tre Brown

Not the skinny speedburner he was in the past, Brown has added some weight to that ever-constant speed. Able to check Brown out at Union’s practice, and it’s scary to think what that group of receivers is going to be able to do this season for Kirk Fridrich’s club. How much time Brown plays at CB and WR will be something to monitor in the fall.

Cache ATH Kaieem Caesar

Heard stuff about Caesar as a junior, but it absolutely did not do him justice after watching him tear it up at OU’s elite camp last week. Now a legitimate 6-foot-2 and 260 pounds, he’s going to make some school very happy down the road. The Power 5 conference looks aren’t there just yet, for whatever reason, but it should change sooner than later.
