Report: Denton Guyer 7-on-7

In an effort to prove that Sooners Illustrated is the best recruiting site on the net we were not only on hand for the OU Elite Prospect Camp on Saturday, but we also had a scout LIVE on the scene at the Denton Guyer 7-on-7, which featured a host of top end prospects.

Daryl Williams (2010 OT –Lake Dallas) – I got to the tournament a little late but when I got there Daryl grabbed my eye instantly. He is every bit the 6'5 270 he is listed at. He is really well put together and looks like he could carry another 25-30 pounds. He is a real nice kid "yes sir" or "no sir" every time he's asked a question. He's a real team guy, was there just cheering on his team. It is obvious he has a real interest in Oklahoma to me but we will see what happens. It wouldn't surprise me if he's a Sooner by the time the season rolls around

J.W. Walsh (2011 QB –Denton Guyer) – He's a real nice kid, and a talented young Quarterback. He has a number of nice touchdown passes. He had one throw where he delivered a real nice pump fake that the cornerback bit on and he threw a perfect pass on an out route for a touchdown. It was not an easy throw but looked effortless. A little bit after that he threw a 20 yard bullet across the middle and hit the receiver in stride, was a great throw. He is really accurate and has a good arm. It is easy to tell that JW is the leader of the team by how vocal he is and he does it all in a positive way. Overall, he is a nice looking prospect for next season. Also his dad is the head coach and he was a really nice guy.

Samuel Ajala (2011 WR – Desoto) – Samuel was the most intriguing wide receiver prospect at the tournament in my opinion that I saw. Samuel is about 6'1 or 6'2 about 175, nice looking wide receiver who is really well put together. The very first play I watched of Samuel was a fade route to him and let me just say it wasn't fair for the cornerback and safety covering him. The corners and safeties covering him weren't on his level but his talent and athleticism was undeniable. He had 2 fade route touchdowns where he elevated and caught the ball at its highest point, which was impressive. He also had a deep 45-yard touchdown catch where he just ran by the coverage and had an easy catch. Every time the quarterback looked his way it was just pitch and catch. I would like to see him against some more talented corners to see more of what he is made of. However I was plenty impressed with what I saw. He could be a top wide receiver in the state next year.

Austin Vincent – (2011 WR – Desoto) – He is another young talented receiver. He is 6'1 168. He had some nice catches on jump balls today. He is a really nice kid.

James Franklin (2010 QB – Lake Dallas) – First let me say he is a nice looking raw QB. He has a quick release and throws a beautiful ball. He threw the best pass I saw out there today. He dropped back and threw a gorgeous rainbow in the back of the end zone and hit the receiver right in the chest. He could not have thrown it any better. Thing is I talked to his coach (who happened to have been a good QB from the high school I went to) and he said he is natural running quarterback that is getting better in the passing game. You can tell he is raw but with some coaching I think he could be a nice QB for Missouri.

Darius Terrell – (2010 WR – Desoto) – Texas' commit had the best play I saw where he ran a fade route, out jumped the corner, tipped the ball in the air and then caught it for an amazing touchdown.

Chris Barnett – (2011 TE – Dallas Smith) – Jatashun Beachum is still sidelined with an injury, so it was junior tight end Chris Barnett who stole the show for Dallas Smith. I got to the tournament late but when I got here I heard this kids name multiple times. All I heard was "Kid looks good" and "Kid is a beast"! He backed up those sentiments by being the best prospect in attendance at the seven-on-seven. Following the even he was supposedly on his way to Lawrence to participate in the Super Jayhawk camp, and was not able make it in to Norman to work out with the Sooners.
