Dax Hill

1) DAX HILL
DB – BOOKER T WASHINGTON

Oklahoma is starting to become an elite safety pipeline. The 2019 class is no different as Booker T Washington safety Dax Hill is the top prospect in the class. Hill is one of the fastest prospects in the state, regardless of class or position. He also has the prototypical size for a safety prospect. Hill has great bloodlines as well. His older brother is former Booker T Washington running back Justice Hill, now a starter at Oklahoma State.

2) GRAYSON BOOMER
TE – COLLINSVILLE

Oklahoma has had a recent stretch of good tight end prospects. However, Collinsville 2019 tight end Grayson Boomer could top the list. It’s still early, but it’s possible that Boomer could be the best tight end prospect to come out of Oklahoma since Jermaine Gresham over a decade ago. That’s not to say Boomer is the next Gresham. However, he’s already rated as the top 2019 tight end in the country according to some recruiting services.

Demariyon Houston

3) DEMARIYON HOUSTON
WR – MILLWOOD

Millwood 2019 wide receiver Demariyon Houston was an absolute breakout star last year as a sophomore for the undefeated Falcons. Whenever Houston would get the ball in his hands, he was a problem for defenses. He isn’t the biggest receiver prospect in the state. However, he could be the top playmaker out of the wide receiver position. He averaged nearly 30 yards per reception last season. He’ll end up being an elite slot receiver prospect.

Collin Clay

4) COLLIN CLAY
DE – PUTNAM CITY

Putnam City has the top defensive end in the 2018 class in Ron Tatum III. They also have the top DE prospect in the 2019 class in Collin Clay. Tatum and Clay make up the best pass-rushing duo in the state today. Quarterbacks will have serious problems this fall trying to avoid not only the state’s top defensive end prospect, but one of the top defensive prospects in the 2019 class. Clay is a little taller than Tatum and the potential here is unbelievable.

Will Phillips

5) WILL PHILLIPS
RB – ENID

Here’s a prospect that we’ve been high on since we first saw him last summer. Enid running back Will Phillips is currently the top junior running back in the state. He’s starting to pick up momentum on the recruiting trail and it’s not hard to figure out why. Phillips is a physical runner who has elusive speed and good size as well. He also has the ability to play on both sides of the ball. However, it’s on the offensive side of the ball that Phillips shines.

6) DARIUS BOONE JR.
RB – UNION

It seems like Union just reloads at the running back position and this year is no different. The Redskins graduated Tulsa signee Shamari Brooks and they’ll replace him with another future D1 running back in junior Darius Boone Jr. Boone saw limited carries last year because he was backing up an all state runner in Brooks. This year, Boone is expected to have an absolute breakout season for Union. He hasn’t started and he’s already got the attention of college coaches.

Cole Mashburn

7) COLE MASHBURN
DE – NORMAN NORTH

A lot of versatility comes to mind when you watch Norman North’s Cole Mashburn work during his breakout sophomore season. For now, we’ll rank him as a defensive lineman prospect, although the jury is still out and it could change by this time next year. Mashburn still has plenty of time to figure out his most natural position on the football field. Mashburn could be a variety of things at the next level.

Elijah Manuel

8) ELIJAH MANUEL
DE – MIDWEST CITY

Midwest City defensive lineman Elijah Manuel is yet another defensive standout for the Code Black Bomber defense. Manuel has a similar frame as fellow Bomber lineman Morgan Moore. Manuel could end up being as versatile as Moore and be considered more of an athlete. Manuel has really blown up this spring and summer and is primed for a big junior campaign for Midwest City.

Will Kuehne

9) WILL KUEHNE
QB – OWASSO

Don’t know the name? You will soon enough. Although he hasn’t officially been named the starter at Owasso, Will Kuehne has all the tools to be the next up and coming quarterback in Oklahoma. Kuehne is a transfer from Texas and has been impressive during spring and summer workouts, quickly becoming acquainted with the Owasso offense. Look for a breakout season from the Ram signal caller.

Demarco Jones

10) DJ JONES
ATH – BOOKER T WASHINGTON

The last time we ranked Booker T Washington’s DJ Jones, it was as a wide receiver. However, he’s shown plenty of ability on the defensive side of the ball. However, it’s the offensive side of the ball that intrigues us the most. Jones isn’t the biggest wide receiver but he has excellent speed and runs good routes. His ability to make a big play in an instant should attract plenty of attention this fall.

Daniel Howard

11) DANIEL HOWARD
DB – MILLWOOD

Millwood’s 2018 class is absolutely stacked with stars. But the 2019 class isn’t lacking talent. Here’s another Millwood standout that is primed to become a statewide known name this fall. Howard is an explosive athlete for the Falcons and plays both sides of the ball for the defending champs. We love his ability as a roving safety. Howard is a heavy hitter that seems to always know where the ball is going to be.

IMG_1655

12) ZACH MARCHESELLI
LB – BROKEN ARROW

Broken Arrow linebacker Zach Marcheselli went from being somewhat unknown to nearly cracking the top ten. The next time we update the rankings, he could be up close to the top five or even in the top five. The Broken Arrow linebacker has had a fantastic spring and summer so far. He’s proving that he has some legitimate speed to match with his physical style of play. This rise up the rankings might just be the beginning.

Jake Tuttle

13) JAKE TUTTLE
RB – COLLINSVILLE

Jake Tuttle is a transfer from Rejoice Christian where he had a breakout sophomore season. He shared the backfield with fellow sophomore Andrew Crow and will no longer have to worry about splitting carries. Collinsville will have a new quarterback and Tuttle will have an expanded workload. After a busy spring and summer on the camp scene, he appears ready.

Ricky Stromburg

14) RICKY STROMBERG
OL – UNION

Another Union prospect makes the rankings as the Redskins are loaded with 2018 and 2019 talented prospects. Offensive lineman Ricky Stromberg is one of the top offensive lineman prospects in the 2019 class. It’s a position group that’s stacked in the 2018 class but Stromberg is already a standout in the upcoming junior class. He’s the younger brother of former Union basketball standout Tim Stromberg.

Andrew Crow

15) ANDREW CROW
RB – REJOICE CHRISTIAN

Andrew Crow was the other half of a running back duo with Jake Tuttle. Crow had less carries than Tuttle but knew how to get in the end zone. He matched Tuttle’s 17 touchdowns with 17 of his own. He came on strong in the second half of the season and into the playoffs. Don’t be surprised if Crow ends up being a breakout star for Rejoice this fall. Crow is also a decent basketball prospect as well.

AJ Newsome

16) AJ NEWSOME
QB – PUTNAM CITY

The highest rated southpaw on the QB Big Board, Putnam City quarterback AJ Newsome emerged last year after a fantastic sophomore campaign. Expectations will be high for the Pirates with a lot of talent returning in 2017. Newsome is a big reason for that as he’ll have an opportunity to put up some big numbers. If he takes the next step in his development, the Pirates will be fun to watch each week.

17) JT McCLOUD
DB – UNION

The third prospect from Union to crack the rankings and yet another stellar defensive back prospect. JT McCloud isn’t on the same page as previous standouts like Tre Brown or even this year with Patrick Fields. However, McCloud definitely has the chance to make that case with a good season this fall. He’s similar to Brown with his legitimate track speed. McCloud will be able to stay with any receiver in the state.

Preston Colbert

18) PRESTON COLBERT
QB – MIDWEST CITY

Midwest City has been carried by their defense the last several years, and it’s led to some successes. However, for the Bombers to take that next step, they need an explosive offense. Quarterback Preston Colbert returns for the Bombers and has the abilities to be the catalyst for a Bomber resurgence. Colbert has the ability to scramble but would much rather pick apart a defense with his arm.

FullSizeRender

19) JUSTIN WARDLAW
DL – MUSTANG

A few years ago, Wardlaw was working as a quarterback prospect who was showing some promise. Fast forward to the present and Wardlaw has gotten bigger, stronger but has kept that football IQ as he’s transitioned to a defensive tackle. The one thing that impresses us with Wardlaw is how he never keeps his eye off of the ball carrier when he’s engaged with an offensive lineman. He could end up being higher on the list with more work at his new position.

Kody Stanley

20) KODY STANLEY
ATH – BERRYHILL

Berryhill is loaded with talent this season but the majority of that talent is in the 2018 class. However, don’t overlook this 2019 standout who was making plays for the Chiefs all season last year. While Stanley is definitely an athletic player, we see his future potentially being on the defensive side of the ball as a defensive end. He has the ability to make plays on offense as a tight end. This season could give us a look at what his position will be in the future.
