Report: Jenks Passing League

Jenks High played host to schools like Owasso, Broken Arrow, Muskogee, Union, and Sapulpa for the area's weekly passing league and Sooners Illustrated was on hand to watch the action and scout the talent. Check out this report to find out more on who stood out.

The Spring Passing League always supplies an opportunity to check out some of the top talent in the state of Oklahoma. Here is a look at some of the prospects who stood out.

ATH Jarrett Lake: No player has been shooting up recruiting lists like this versatile 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete from Jenks. He has a rare combination of size and speed. He plays wide receiver for the Trojans in the passing league, and made a number of key grabs and scored some touchdowns. He is quick off of the line and is very athletic. With his size, frame, long arms, and athletic ability he is hard to stop in one-on-one situations. Some schools are recruiting him as a linebacker, and he looks to have the frame to grow in to that, but he could be an offensive asset for some programs/systems. He had a decent season in 2008, but he will have a breakout season in 2009 and by the time it is all said and done he will be considered as one of the most dangerous and talented players in the state.

WR James Roberson: Roberson has been on the recruiting radar for awhile now, but with steady development he is starting to realize some of the lofty expectations that were heaped on him when folks first started talking about his skills three years ago. He is the go to guy on the Union offense. He is rock solid with his route running ability, and is a much better athlete than many folks give him credit for. His brother Thomas got the early run as the best athlete between the two brothers, but James may have not been getting his just due, as his skill set is right on par of that of a BCS level recruit. He would fit in perfectly at a school like Missouri, Texas Tech, or Kansas, but he has decided to stay home and play for Tulsa.

CB Brenton Bogar: There have not been many reports out there on Bogar, but he is a talented corner prospect. He is a tremendous looking physical specimen, and plays with a lot of fire. He is tough in man coverage and teams have learned quickly to try not to push him too much or test his side of the field that often. He is a high D1 type of talent, but the offers have not really started to roll in that quickly. Kansas has shown the most interest and they have indicated that a scholarship could be coming at any time.

QB Archie Bradley: The Broken Arrow offense got a huge boost when Bradley decided to move in from Muskogee. He has a great looking frame, and a big arm. He is also considered as elite level baseball prospect and is contender to drafted in to the MLB next year. The Tigers' offense is quite different and is more of "system" type of offense, so it will be an adjustment from the one he was used to running for the Roughers. It was his first time to work out with B.A. and he struggled early on, but by the third session he was starting to dial in. You could tell that the potential is there for him to be a major recruit for the class of 2011.

CB Aaron Colvin: Colvin was playing safety while I was watching and was chomping at the bit to get in on some of the offensive series. He did not get to showcase any of his one-on-one lockdown abilities while playing safety, but he flowed to the ball, and still exhibited all of the smoothness that we saw at the OU camp in early June. There were a couple of plays that opposing quarterbacks tried to test his coverage skills by coming over the middle, and Colvin did not allow a pass to be completed.
