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.
Shawnee C Creed Humphrey
Humphrey is simply a different animal compared to who he was last year. A two-inch growth spurt helps, but it’s also his mentality. When asked his favorite part of being back for spring football, he said it was to hit people. That’s his idea of fun, and that’s why Humphrey has risen up the ranks to become an entrenched member of the Scout 300.
2018 Owasso S Wayne Jones
Got to check out Jones twice at Owasso and at OU’s elite camp. Already with a few notable offers, he’s starting to develop a better bond with the OU coaches. The depth at safety is scary deep for the 2018 class, but Jones will not be ignored. He’s good as is, but if he were to grow an inch or two, his ceiling would absolutely disappear.
Moore Southmoore ATH Quindon Lewis
Lewis continues to be a tough one for Sooners Illustrated. After seeing him at Southmoore and Mustang Metro Team Camp, it just does not compute as to why Lewis is not swimming in Power 5 offers right now. He can be a threat at receiver or at cornerback and showed that ability to play both sides effectively during the spring.
Norman North LB Cade Mashburn
Able to check out Mashburn twice this spring at Norman North and OU’s elite camp. He has separated himself as the leader of the pack as it pertains to the Timberwolves defense and performed as well as he could in front of the OU coaches. It remains a numbers game as to whether or not the OU offer comes, but he’s focusing on what he can control.
2018 Tulsa Union WR C.J. Moore
Disappointing to not see Moore at OU’s elite camp but saw enough of what needed to see at Union’s practice. There’s a reason why the Power 5 conference offers are flowing in for Moore right now. Between his hands, height and speed, he’s everything you want as a receiver. A little light right now, the obvious comparison even if not 100 percent accurate is OU’s Jeffery Mead.
Moore Southmoore ATH Gervarrius Owens
The questions will be asked what his position is. Linebacker? Safety? Wide receiver? Seems irrelevant when you watch him play. He has the mentality of a linebacker but also averaged more than 27 yards per catch as receiver. After each year, Owens gets better and better, and there’s nothing more you can ask for from a recruit than that.
