In fact, of the Top 10 wide receivers in the country, seven of them have an Oklahoma offer, six of which are still available. Even more so, the Sooners seem to be in a good position with quite a few of them.
As he has stated for some time now, Proviso West's (IL) Kyle Prater (6-5, 205) is still fairly open. But in recent reports, he did slim things up a bit. While he did say that a number of SEC schools may see him this summer and that schools like USC, Oklahoma, Illinois, Missouri, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Miami and Michigan and in his Top 10, only the Fighting Illini, the Trojans, and Sooners are for sure in his Top 5.
In a video interview a few days ago with Scout.com, Darius White (6-4, 195) of Fort Worth Dunbar named six schools that have pulled away from the pack. Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Florida, and USC make his list, but he made it quite clear that Texas and Oklahoma are the teams to beat for his services.
While he does keep an open mind, Junipero Serra's (CA) Robert Woods still has plenty of opportunities when it comes to choosing a college. After hauling in 81 receptions and 19 touchdowns as a junior, some may say that the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Woods could be in the top spot at his position. No favorites, but it does seem as though Tennessee and Oklahoma will get an official visit from Woods.
It has not been long times since he received his Sooner offer, but Kenny Stills (6-1, 175) could still be pumped about it. He has plenty of offers and unlike many from the West Coast, Stills is looking to get away and check out the country. Schools like Penn State, Florida, LSU and Oklahoma seem to be high on his list. That, and his close friendship with running back Brennan Clay, could mean good news for the future for the Oklahoma program.
There have been plenty of trips for the top Tulsa wide out Demarco Cobbs. With offers from coast to coast, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Cobbs is taking things slow. In latest resprts, Alabama, Tennessee, USC, Georgia, Florida, LSU and Oklahoma are in his primary scope…at least for now as he said his "feelings change everyday."
Talk about real coaches. That is what Justin McCay (6-3.5, 200)said about the Oklahoma coaching staff. Of course schools like Missouri, Tennessee, Florida, Kansas State, and Alabama are in the mix, but it seems as though the Sooners may be in strongest position with McCay.
He does not put a favorite out there, as many don't, but admits that he has been to Missouri and Oklahoma the most during his recruitment. So for Marcus Lucas (6-4, 190),even though he does live in Tiger territory, he has made it known that he is wide open. Lucas has mentioned in a few reports that his mother attended school at Missouri, but is not leaning on him to go the same way.
It was April 27 of this year was the last time Oklahoma was mentioned in a Scout.com update by four-star Trovon Reed (5-11, 175). As one of Louisiana's top recruits, it seems as though LSU is in the best position followed by Auburn, Tennessee and Florida.
As for recruiting, DeAndrew White (6-0, 170) of North Shore has kept the media updates to a minimum keeping a low profile. Back in May, White did mention that he would like to camp at LSU. But other than that, there has not been much said. He plans to announce at the Army All-American game.
Though he still looks to cut the list a little more, Oklahoma did make the Top 8 along with Texas Tech, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Miami and Cincinnati for California prep star Kadron Boone (6-1, 195). One thing that has kept Boone level headed (other than the fact that he is just a good kid), is family members and friends who have gone through the process. One of which is his cousin Devin Hester.
It's been two months that Anthony Jefferson (6-2, 180) has had an Oklahoma offer. Now with 11 offers in hand, it's pretty clear sign as to where Jefferson is favoring, Cal, UCLA, and USC. Naturally, he is close to the programs within his state, but said that he is more than willing to travel.
At the moment, the Sooners do have a commitment from Cibolo Steele's Sheldon McClain and Dallas Skyline's Joseph Powell, who is being brought in as an athlete, but may get some time on offense.
