The schools change, but the competition never goes away. The Metro Team Camp at Mustang continues to be a must-see attraction during the spring for Oklahoma high school football.
After watching two days of action, Sooners Illustrated is confident in saying here are some of the top performers from the massive event.
Midwest City High DE/OLB Jalen Redmond
It’s really not even close. No disrespect to the other players at the camp, but this has just been an absolute showcase event for Redmond. His talent has never been questioned even last year when he had zero varsity experience. Now his confidence and knowledge is starting to creep up to his athletic ability, and it’s a scary sight to see for opposing teams. Redmond released a top six, but he said that list will undergo a revision here sooner than later.
OKC McGuinness OT Owen Condon
Condon has been a name to watch within the state ever since he was entering his sophomore season. Always a tall kid, Condon has grown into his body and is showing that dominant side that has him entrenched in the Scout 300. Condon manhandled defenders throughout the event and showed why he’s a lot more than just his size. Offers have poured in for Condon in recent months, and he has plenty of choices moving forward.
Bixby OL Bryce Bray
Committed to Oklahoma State, Bray has done everything asked of him at this camp for three years and continues to shine. It’s debatable if he’ll be a tackle or guard for the Cowboys, but Bray has been top-notch at left tackle for the Spartans. Bixby is absolutely loaded at the offensive line spot, and Bray is the ringleader of the group.
Midwest City DB Ace Vick
Vick was a virtual unknown at this event last year but became a name to watch because of his speed. That speed has led to Vick earning multiple offers in the last year and now he’s starting to understand how to play the position. The Bombers have a strong history in the secondary, and Vick is the next in line for the black and gold.
Moore Westmoore TE James Palmer
It was at this event last year where it felt like Palmer had cemented himself as a top recruit for the 2018 class, but his junior season was marred by injury. Now healthy and looking like that can’t-miss recruit once again, Palmer has put on a show. He’s a lot bigger than he was before and has grown into a tight end instead of a wide receiver.
Moore Westmoore WR Damoriea Vick
Stay at Westmoore with Vick, who is another big target for the Jaguars heading into the 2017 season. The interest is starting to pick up with Vick earning a couple of offers from smaller schools. His size makes him one to watch, but a stellar senior season could see Vick become a fast-rising prospect in the state before it’s all said and done.
Bixby OG Josh Owens
It’s going to be a tough chore in 6A-II to deal with Bray and Owens. Offers started to trickle in for Owens, but he ended the drama with his commitment to Tulsa last weekend. Owens is clearly an interior lineman moving forward and has been making a name for himself.
