Lake Moving up the Charts

Jarrett Lake has had a busy week attending camps all over the region, but it has paid off in a big way as major schools have started to come calling with offers. On Saturday he was at OU for a one-day camp, and had a rock solid performance that looks to have helped him nail down an offer from the Sooners.

Jarrett Lake, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete from Jenks High in Okla. plays exclusively on the offensive side of the ball in high school, but at the OU camp on Saturday he worked out at linebacker.

"It was fun it was a new experience, but it was fun though," Lake informed.

Lake enjoyed getting to work with OU linebacker coach Brent Venables, and he felt like coach showed him some extra attention in the drills.

"I felt he did show me a little bit more special attention throughout the day."

Lake now has offers from schools like Arkansas, Tulsa, UNLV, TCU and Wyoming.

"Yes sir, 6-7 offers," lake said when asked about his offer list. "Some of the schools are still looking at me as a wide receiver or as a running back, but I feel that my spot will be at linebacker on he next level."

Lake will likely add an official offer from the Sooners to his list the next time he gets in contact with the coaching staff.

"I feel that there is a real, real, real good chance they are going to offer. They got to go through a couple of things and then I am supposed to talk to coach Venables tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday."

It seems like the camp experience has paid off for Lake as stops at OU and Arkansas seem to have netted him offers and on Sunday he was at Oklahoma State and that camp stop may turn out an offer from the Cowboys.

"It has been fun," admitted Lake. "Now people are starting to realize that I am a really good player and now I am looking forward to all of the offers and all of the opportunities that are starting to come in right now."
