Big Board: Defensive Lineman

1) Noah Jones-2016-Southmoore
(Committed To Texas Tech)

Noah Jones is yet another Southmoore standout who makes one of OKGridiron’s Big Boards. Jones is a prospect that we believe hasn’t blossomed yet. Still a lot of work for this Sabercat but the upside is unbelievable. Jones could end up being the top overall prospect in this class when we look back on it five years from now.

2) Alex Criddle-2016-Edison

Edison’s Alex Criddle is the top defensive tackle in the state. Criddle already has picked up a handful of D1 offers and this spring and summer hasn’t slowed that down. Criddle is a monster on the defensive line and is almost an automatic double team. He’s a bull up front. Criddle could also end up on the offensive line.

3) Caleb Colvin-2016-Owasso

Similar to Criddle, Owasso’s Caleb Colvin is an absolute force up front for the Rams. He’s the younger brother of former Sooner and current Jacksonville Jaguar Aaron Colvin. The younger Colvin has already gained attention from all over the country, picking up several offers. Colvin’s aggressive play up front is impressive.

4) Tristan Crowder-2016-Bartlesville

Bartlesville defensive end Tristan Crowder is another prospect who went from unranked to high on the OKG Big Boards. Crowder plays on a Bartlesville defense with another D1 prospect in AJ Parker. Crowder is an aggressive defensive end who doesn’t hesitate to initiate contact.

5) Corey Tipsword-2016-Norman North

Norman North’s Corey Tipsword struggled with injuries during his junior year or he would be in a similar position to Edison’s Alex Criddle. Tipsword is a mass up front and just like Criddle, brings double teams all the time. Tipsword was very impressive this spring and looks to have a big 2015.

6) Brendon Evers-2017-Bixby

Yet another prospect who went from widely unknown to a potential D1 prospect in the 2017 class. Bixby defensive tackle Brendon Evers was very impressive when OKG saw him at the Mustang Team Camp. Evers does a great job of using his hands to release off a block and attack the ball carrier.

7) Walter Watson-2016-Del City

Del City’s Walter Watson reminds us of another Mid-Del player from last year’s class. Midwest City’s DeJai Johnson. Watson isn’t the tallest but is a bowling ball up front. He could also play either side of the ball on the line of scrimmage.

8) Worenn Davis-2016-Midwest City

Another Midwest City stud defender. This time it’s Worenn Davis, younger brother of former Bomber and current Jayhawk Ronnie Davis. Worenn had a strong spring and an even better summer at various camps. Look for his name to keep coming up in 2015, similar to DeMikal Harrison last year.

9) Gage Kaiser-2016-Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow’s Gage Kaiser does a great job of shedding blocks on the line of scrimmage. Kaiser’s weakness shows in the open field because of a lack of a quick burst as a defensive end. If Kaiser can continue to get that burst and first step quicker, he’ll be an impressive DE prospect to watch.

10) Laron Stokes-2016-Central

Another Central defensive lineman makes the list. Defensive end Laron Stokes reminds us of Victory Christian’s Jon-Michael Terry. While Stokes isn’t as explosive or quick as Terry, he has some key attributes that will help him reach the next level.
