Sooners Illustrated's Second Session Stars

Sooners Illustrated has been leading the charge with high quality camp information so far in 2009 and in this report we take a look back at the second three-day camp session and talk about some of the best players who were there, as well as name our MVP's.

One-Day Co-MVP: Aaron Colvin – Owasso (Okla.)

Colvin amazed during his time at OU. He displayed excellent footwork in the drills, and then went on to dominate in the one-on-one portion of the camp. He was able to lockdown some slick receivers along the way and rarely got beat. He earned an offer off of his performance and will likely receive a huge bump in the rankings.

One-Day Co-MVP: Adam Shead – Cedar Hill (Texas)

There is no doubt who the strongest OL commit is for the Sooners in the class of 2010. Bronson Irwin may edge out Shead as the highest ranked guard, but Shead is right there with him with a different skill set. He uses his massive frame and strength to bully players around. He is steps ahead of former Cedar Hill teammate Thomas Ashcraft, who signed with Texas a year ago. He has the size that Coach Patton loves in a lineman.

One-Day Co-MVP: Jarrett Lake – Jenks (Okla.)

Lake came in to the camp having limited experience at linebacker, but walked away with an offer. That is saying something right there in and of itself, but Lake earned it being a great athlete and putting in the work in the off-season. He is a playmaker in the Jenks offense, but it looks like he will be able to make a transition to the defensive side of the ball once he gets to college.

Three-Day MVP: Julian Wilson – Southmoore (Okla.)

Wilson may have not yet earned an offer from OU, but he walked out of the camp as one of the most improved players in the state. He has come so far with his footwork and hands that he almost seems like a different player. His first stop at the camp he caught everything. He put in the work in the off-season as well, and is now reaping the rewards as eh holds about 15 offers.

Co-Super Sleeper Award: Chris Carr – Checotah (Okla.)

Carr almost lost his life to a severe injury that he suffered on the field, but this 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back has bounced back in a big way. He may not get much talk as one of the best in the state, but he was Mr. Football finalist in 2008 after rushing for over 1,400 yards and scoring 27 touchdowns. He is one to keep a close eye on as he will be a D1 player.

Co-Super Sleeper Award: Tom Farniok – Sioux Falls (South Dakota)

If you are from South Dakota and you have offers then you are just going to be a sleeper recruit, because there are not a whole lot of players from the state who get recruited, but Farniok has some nice skills at the center position and it only took a few minutes to see what Iowa State saw. He is a nice looking lineman, who will probably get more D1 looks based on his performance at the camp.

Underclassman MVP: Johnny Haynes – Irving Mac (Texas)

It was not as easy to find an underclassman MVP and the decision came down to Haynes and Hunter Davis, but Haynes edged him by a little for the way he performed in the 1v1 drills (linebackers did not really do these drills). He is a slick receiver and should be considered one of the most solid all-around guys at the camp. He looked good in the drills and made some nice grabs when working against the defensive backs. He had some success against fellow Irving native and OU commit Eddrick Loften.
