Ryan Broyles, ATH, 5'11, 168, 4.5, NORMAN, OKLAHOMA:

One of the best pure athletes in Oklahoma, Ryan Broyles has already proven on the camp circuit that he is a tremendous prospect nationally. Broyles is being recruiting on both sides of the ball at both wide receiver and corner.

"I go both ways at Norman High and every school that has offered me has told me that I can pick where I want to play," said Broyles. "I am leaning towards corner right now, but that can change at any time. I like the attitude you can have on defense as it is a lot more aggressive than the one you can have on offense."

Broyles, who will be a three-year starter at Norman High, finished with 38 tackles and five interceptions despite being out for three games with a high ankle sprain last season. On offense, he finished with 19 catches for 370 yards and five touchdowns. He also returned punts and kick-offs as well.

Broyles recently went to the Texas A&M camp and really made a name for himself.

"I won the Defensive MVP of the camp," said Broyles. "I wasn't really expecting anything like that, but after they took all our measurements and I went through all my drills I went one-on-one with several different guys and did real well."

Broyles starts in hoops (18 ppg) and runs the 4X100 (first leg) as well as high jumping 6'10.

He has been offered by Tulsa, Mississippi State, Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Michigan State."

"I have really narrowed anything down," said Broyles. "That is what I want to do when I get track over. Then I will start to concentrate on recruiting."

What are his thoughts on Oklahoma at this time?

"It is kind of up in the air right now," said Broyles. "I have received letters from there, but I haven't really received much attention from them. Cale Gundy is supposed to come by the office next Monday. For me to get real interested in a college they have to offer me, and I don't know if OU is going to offer me or not. Coach (Darrell) Wyatt told me that OU was going to offer me last summer, but he is not there any more. So, I am just waiting to see what they are going to do. But I have a number of great programs that have so I am very happy where I am at in recruiting at this time."

Broyles has qualified.
