OKPreps 2018 Rankings
Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/stokes04/public_html/okpreps/wp-content/themes/newstube/functions.php on line 1650
Ranking Updated: July 28, 2017
1) BREY WALKER
OL – WESTMOORE
The state’s top offensive lineman and the top prospect in the 2018 class has had a stranglehold on this position for over a year. The All American is without a doubt the top offensive lineman in Oklahoma and it’s possible he’ll be the highest nationally rated prospect since Gerald McCoy, over a decade ago. Walker made a big splash this summer when he transferred from Southmoore to Westmoore.
2) JOSH PROCTOR
DB – OWASSO
All American safety Josh Proctor is without a doubt the top defensive back prospect in Oklahoma right now. He’s up there with former Jenks safety and current OU starter Steven Parker as far as the best safety prospect in Oklahoma this decade. When you look at Proctor’s game, there isn’t much to complain about. After missing most of his junior season last year, look for Proctor to have a huge impact on the field this year.
3) JALEN REDMOND
LB – MIDWEST CITY
It’s going to take some magnificent performances to knock Jalen Redmond from the top spot of the linebacker group. Even that might not be enough. The Midwest City linebacker is a different type of athlete that seems to have an extra gear that nobody else in the state has. Redmond has only been playing varsity football for a little over a year and he’s already established himself as one of the top defenders in Oklahoma.
4) RON TATUM III
DL – PUTNAM CITY
Putnam City defensive end Ron Tatum III continues to get better and better every time we see the Pirate on the field. He’s a critical piece of perhaps the best defensive line in the state. With the exception of Jalen Redmond at Midwest City, who’s a hybrid linebacker, no other player in the state is more dangerous at getting after the quarterback. We’re interested in seeing what Tatum does this fall.
5) BRYCE BRAY
OL – BIXBY
In most years, Bixby offensive lineman Bryce Bray is the hands-down top offensive lineman prospect in the class. While he’s behind Walker, the gap might not be as big as you think. The Bixby standout continues to get better and better with his technique and ability. He’s always had the size to be an elite offensive tackle prospect. Now he’s got the skill set and the ceiling continues to get higher.
6) CJ MOORE
WR – UNION
Union wide receiver CJ Moore tops the list of wide outs in Oklahoma right now. The last time we saw CJ Moore on the football field, he torched Norman North for three touchdown receptions in the state championship game. Moore has recovered well from offseason surgery and will be the go-to option in the dangerous Union passing attack. Moore’s ability to go up and get the ball makes him a constant mismatch.
7) CASEY THOMPSON
QB – NEWCASTLE
Newcastle quarterback Casey Thompson has been one of, if not the top quarterbacks in the state for the last two years. He made waves this offseason when he transferred from Southmoore to Newcastle, where former offensive coordinator Jeff Brickman is now head coach. Thompson is an absolute playmaker with the ball in his hands. He can throw it, he can run it, Newcastle gets a gem.
8) PATRICK FIELDS
DB – UNION
It’s not a secret that Union is stacked and has been stacked with talent for the last year. Last year, they had an elite defensive back in cornerback Tre Brown. Now they have another in safety Patrick Fields. This year’s Union standout is a fan favorite and has the ability to do a variety of things in the secondary. He’s excellent in pass coverage. However, our favorite thing about Fields is his ability in run support situations.
9) OWEN CONDON
OL – BISHOP McGUINNESS
Bishop McGuinness offensive lineman Owen Condon has been on the radar for several years now. Condon is another top-notch offensive tackle prospect that is very similar to Bryce Bray at Bixby. The McGuinness standout has all the tools to become a solid offensive tackle in college. Condon will be one of the few returning starters on a Bishop McGuinness team that made it to the 5A title game a year ago.
10) JORDAN KELLEY
DL – UNION
While Ron Tatum is the state’s top defensive end prospect, it’s Union’s Jordan Kelley who is the top defensive tackle prospect. This time last year, Kelley was on some radars but a lot of improvement had to be made. Check that off the list. Not only did Kelley improve, he became one of the top defensive tackle prospects in this part of the country. A stellar junior season and non-stop work in the offseason helped that.
11) ISRAEL ANTWINE
DL – MILLWOOD
Millwood lineman Israel Antwine is one of our favorite prospects to deal with. Antwine is one of, if not the most polite prospect we’ve ever dealt with. However, you look at his film and his opponents would say he’s anything but nice. Antwine has shown the ability to play both sides of the ball for a star-studded Millwood squad. However, it appears that his future will be on the defensive side of the ball.
12) WAYNE JONES
DB – OWASSO
When your teammate in the defensive backfield is All American Josh Proctor, it’s easy to get overlooked. However, Owasso safety Wayne Jones has made a name for himself as one of the top run-stopping safeties in the state. Jones really stepped up his game last year after Proctor went down with an injury. Jones is one of a few defensive backs on this ranking that can be moved around to a variety of positions.
13) JASON TAYLOR
DB – CARL ALBERT
Carl Albert 2018 safety Jason Taylor is one of, if not the most underrated defensive back prospects in Oklahoma’s 2018 class. Taylor definitely hasn’t gotten the attention he deserves. The versatility in Taylor’s game is what has attracted coaches to the Carl Albert standout the most. Taylor is a quiet prospect that without a doubt lets his game do his talking for him.
14) JACOB FARRELL
OL – SULPHUR
It’s a guarantee every single year. Each spring, a prospect that’s about to head into his senior season is going to emerge as a big time recruit. In the 2018 class, look no further than Jacob Farrell. The Sulphur big man came from out of nowhere this spring and became a nationally recruited prospect. The big man has plenty of versatility in his game but his future appears to be at offensive tackle.
15) ANTHONY GOODLOW
ATH – DEL CITY
It’s only been a few months since our last ranking and here’s a prospect who came from out of nowhere to the top spot on the athlete Big Board. Del City’s Anthony Goodlow has a massive upside on the defensive side of the ball. Whether he’s a linebacker or defensive lineman is still up for debate. However, Goodlow without a doubt has a high ceiling.
16) HUNTER ANTHONY
OL – TUTTLE
Tuttle offensive lineman Hunter Anthony has been a massive prospect on a lot of scouts’ radar for years now. It started when his older brother Chandler was getting recruited in the 2016 class. You couldn’t help but notice the younger, but bigger, brother in Hunter. The Tuttle 2018 standout is an absolute force at the point of attack. He’s perhaps the biggest offensive lineman prospect in the class.
17) RUSTY RUDD
ATH – FORT GIBSON
Similar to Jones’ Dalton May, Fort Gibson’s Rusty Rudd was ranked on a different Big Board during the last batch of rankings. We ranked the Tiger standout as a wide receiver prospect. However, a lot of schools are taking interest in Rudd as a defensive back prospect. When you watch the tape, you can’t help but love his playmaking abilities when he has the ball in his hand on offense.
18) DRAKE STOOPS
WR – NORMAN NORTH
During Norman North’s explosive 2016 season, wide receiver Drake Stoops emerged as the state’s best slot receiver. Stoops absolutely blew up during his junior season. He went from catching 4 touchdowns as a sophomore to being near the top in the state with 20 touchdown receptions as a junior. Despite the knocks on his size, Stoops proved that he has the ability to play with the big boys.
19) NIGEL BRANNON
OL – JOHN MARSHALL
John Marshall offensive lineman Nigel Brannon is a prospect to keep track of at the next level. Brannon has all the physical tools at his disposal and he has the chance to be an elite prospect. The ceiling for him is extremely high but he has yet to reach it. If Brannon ever reaches his full potential, he’s going to be a fun prospect to watch.
20) SEAN SHAW
WR – JONES
Similar to Union’s CJ Moore, Jones wide receiver Sean Shaw is coming off a surgery in the offseason. He’s back to 100% and will be good to go for his senior campaign. Shaw has been a nightmare for opposing cornerbacks for several years now. To succeed at the next level, the 6’5 big man will need to put on some more weight and muscle to help his longevity. But the one cliche you hear all the time is you can’t coach size.
21) NIKIA JONES
WR – WAGONER
When you talk about Wagoner wide receiver Nikia Jones’ career, you just have to say that he has been a baller. He’s caught 39 touchdown passes in his career and has had at least ten touchdown receptions in every season. Not to mention he’s helped lead Wagoner to three straight state titles. He has just about every tool you look for in a wide receiver prospect.
22) DEVONTE LEE
RB – JOHN MARSHALL
It doesn’t take much time to figure out that John Marshall running back Devonte Lee is the best running back in Oklahoma. The John Marshall standout was simply unstoppable last year as a junior. He averaged 15 yards per carry and was a one-man wrecking crew. While he doesn’t have elusive speed, he doesn’t need it with his style of running. The style where it takes four to five defenders to bring him down.
23) DALTON MAY
ATH – JONES
The last time Jones standout Dalton May was on the Big Board and OKPreps Rankings, he was ranked as a defensive lineman. This time around, May is being ranked as an athlete considering his future still isn’t set on which side of the ball he’ll play. He very easily could end up being a tight end at the next level. However, we still believe he’ll end up playing on the defensive side of the ball.
24) TK WILKERSON
ATH – SKIATOOK
Similar to just about every other athlete on the Big Board and OKPreps Rankings, you can make the argument that TK Wilkerson could play on both sides of the ball at the next level. Wilkerson has had a great spring and summer, showing out as a running back prospect. Don’t overlook his abilities on the defensive side of the ball as a linebacker. Either way, Wilkerson has a bright future at the next level.
25) JOSH OWENS
OL – BIXBY
Most schools are happy with one D1 offensive line prospect. Bixby has to love the fact that they have two. Most of the attention is on Bryce Bray but offensive tackle Josh Owens isn’t a prospect to overlook. Owens is an offensive tackle prospect right now but it’s not impossible to see him potentially move to another position on the offensive line.
26) JAMES PALMER
TE – WESTMOORE
An intriguing story to watch this fall will be the return of Westmoore tight end James Palmer. This time last year, Palmer was near the top of the 2018 class rankings. Early on in his junior year, Palmer went down with an achilles injury that cut his 2016 season short. When healthy and on his game, Palmer has the chance to be a special prospect. We’ll wait and see how this comeback story is going to end.
27) MORGAN MOORE
OL – MIDWEST CITY
Out of all the offensive lineman prospects, Midwest City lineman Morgan Moore has the most versatility in his game. The Bombers will be playing Moore on defense this fall and it’s not crazy to think that he could switch to defense at the next level. Moore has a good frame where he could either work to be a defensive end or bulk up and stay as an offensive tackle.
28) PERRY OLSEN
ATH – YUKON
Quarterback and linebacker Perry Olsen transferred to Yukon from Southmoore and appears primed for a big season this fall. Under new Yukon head coach Jeremy Reed, Olsen is the perfect player for Reed’s option offensive attack. He’s on the radar of scouts already, but this fall will give Olsen to really raise his stock and get in the minds of more college coaches.
29) DOMINICK NEAL
WR – LAWTON
Lawton has become the high school equivalent of Halfback U. They’ve put out some really solid running back prospects over the last few years. However, their best offensive playmaker this fall might be at the wide receiver position. Dominick Neal has emerged as a legitimate D1 prospect and it doesn’t take long to see why. He had a stellar junior season and can only raise his stock from here.
30) ISSAC BEVERLY
DB – DEL CITY
It’s a year where the safety position is absolutely loaded in Oklahoma. That makes a guy like Del City cornerback Issac Beverly a premium commodity. There aren’t as many elite corners in this year’s class compared to the last few and Beverly has proven he can play at that level. Beverly is extremely physical and even has the frame and body to move around to different spots in the defensive backfield.
31) RYLAN McQUARTERS
ATH – BOOKER T WASHINGTON
If you have the last name McQuarters and you play football at Booker T Washington, you have to be a playmaker right? That’s the case with Booker T Washington standout Rylan McQuarters. He’s played primarily defensive back and has been known as a return specialist. This fall, you’ll see McQuarters on the offensive side of the ball playing a lot of running back. Wherever you put him, he makes plays.
32) GARY MOSSOP JR.
DB – BROKEN ARROW
Another fast-rising defensive back prospect is Broken Arrow’s Gary Mossop Jr. He has had a fantastic spring and summer so far. Expectations will be high for Mossop Jr. and the entire Broken Arrow defense this fall as several prospects have emerged as legitimate D1 prospects. Mossop Jr. has shown plenty of promise already and could jump up these rankings the next time we update them.
33) COBY TILLMAN
LB – BIXBY
As far as a college prospect, Bixby’s Coby Tillman is going to get knocked for his size. Some might not think he has the speed either. Not us. We’re all in on the Bixby linebacker. Tillman might not be the fastest or the biggest linebacker in the state, but he does not slow down all game. It seems that he has unlimited energy and his football IQ is through the roof. It seems like every play Tillman is either in on the tackle or near the ball.
34) COURTRE ALEXANDER
DL – OWASSO
Owasso 2018 defensive end Courtre Alexander is another athletic defensive lineman that also plays on Owasso’s basketball team. Alexander is a force to handle up front and he’s starting to rise as a defensive end prospect. If Alexander can continue fine tune some parts of his game, he’ll continue to climb. Also, don’t be surprised to see Alexander line up on offense as a tight end every now and then this fall for the Rams.
35) PATRICK CURLEY
LB – WAGONER
Wagoner linebacker Patrick Curley has been under the radar for a while now but that’s coming to an end. Curley had to miss his sophomore season due to a devastating injury. As a junior, Curley was overshadowed linebacker KJ Lee, who was a four year starter. This year, Curley will be the leader of the Wagoner defense. He has all the physical tools and could end up being a better college prospect than Lee.
36) DERRICK SHAW
DL – BROKEN ARROW
Broken Arrow 2018 lineman Derrick Shaw is one of the fastest rising prospects on the defensive linemen big board. Shaw has all the tools to be one of the better prospects at his position. However, he doesn’t have the prototypical size that most big college programs are looking for. But when you look at Shaw’s skill set and productivity, it’s hard to keep a guy like that off this list.
37) ADRIAN “AK” WILSON
WR – UNION
With all the star power Union has had in the last two years, it’s easy for a guy like Adrian Wilson to get overlooked. However, the Union slot receiver has the ability to be one of the top playmakers at that spot. Wilson is one of the quickest receivers in the 2018 class and has an amazing first step to go along with agility. Wilson will have the opportunity to open some eyes this fall as a senior.
38) BRENDAN MITCHELL
WR – EDMOND MEMORIAL
Edmond Memorial Brendan Mitchell is a prospect that we’ve liked for two years now. With the combination of size and legit track speed, Mitchell is a prospect that should be getting more attention. However, Mitchell still needs to take that next step to become a more consistent playmaker. If he does that, his senior season will be one to pay attention to this fall.
39) RYMOND GREEN
ATH – BERRYHILL
Berryhill’s Rymond Green is an absolute beast on the defensive line for the Chiefs. He’s a little undersized to be a defensive end at the next level. It seems like moving back to a linebacker spot would be appropriate for his size. Green has the ability to be a very athletic inside linebacker with a specialty of stopping the run. Every year we see a prospect that doesn’t get enough attention and this year it’s Green.
40) DAMORIEA VICK
WR – WESTMOORE
Westmoore wide receiver Damoriea Vick is starting to get on everybody’s radar as we get closer to the start of the regular season. Vick is apart of a Westmoore offense that has playmakers everywhere. As far as the wide receivers go, Vick is a game changer who can completely open up the game on any given possession. Vick has the size and the speed and could end up being a breakout star this fall.
41) ACE VICK
DB – MIDWEST CITY
It seems like all Midwest City does is produce future D1 safeties. Ace Vick is the next in line at the position. Vick doesn’t have the same size that names like Will Sunderland or Evan Fields have had in the past. However, Midwest City plans on getting creative with Vick on the gridiron this fall. Vick will see some time on offense as a playmaker. He definitely has the speed for it. The next time we update the rankings, we might see Vick as an athlete.
42) MIGUEL FULGENCIO
DB – CLAREMORE SEQUOYAH
Similar to some other prospects in this ranking, Claremore Sequoyah’s Miguel Fulgencio has all the physical tools to play a variety of positions at the next level. Fulgencio plays both sides of the ball for Claremore Sequoyah, however, his future will more than likely be on the defensive side of the ball. Fulgencio will more than likely be a roving safety or even a linebacker depending on the defensive scheme.
43) COOPER SMITH
OL – PUTNAM CITY WEST
A few years ago, you wouldn’t find any Putnam City West prospects ranked in the OKPreps Rankings. However, things are starting to turnaround and more prospects are starting to standout for the Patriots. This year, it’s offensive lineman Cooper Smith. The PC West lineman is starting to gain some traction in his recruitment and his talent is starting to get noticed.
44) GERQUAN SANDERS
WR – SAPULPA
Talk about a breakout star. The last time we did the OKPreps 2018 rankings, Sapulpa’s Gerquan Sanders was not on our radar. That has changed as the Sapulpa standout has the ability to have a breakout season this fall. Sanders could be the best prospect that nobody is talking about in Oklahoma’s 2018 class. Sanders has all the size and skill to turn into one of the state’s better receiver prospects.
45) BRODY ODOM
LB – WYNNEWOOD
Wynnewood made it all the way to the state title game a year ago. They had a solid defense led by linebacker Brody Odom. The senior linebacker had an all state caliber season and was one of the best at his position with getting to the quarterback. Odom may be a little undersized but he’s very similar to Coby Tillman at Bixby. He’s got a motor that doesn’t quit and knows how to bring people down.
46) RJ FISHER
ATH – LAWTON EISENHOWER
Lawton Eisenhower is a two-sport star for the Eagles. He’s been the starting quarterback and a critical part of the basketball team the last few years. Fisher will more than likely have to play defense at the next level. Unless he fits the right offensive scheme, he could remain at quarterback. However, we think that Fisher will fit more defenses as a safety or even a linebacker.
47) DEZMOND HOWARD
LB – MILLWOOD
Millwood’s Dezmond Howard is similar to Midwest City’s Jalen Redmond in build as well as athleticism. While we’re not completely convinced Howard is a linebacker at the next level, he would fit the position well. Howard is a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball. Another similarity to Redmond is their ferocious play. Howard is one of the hardest hitting linebackers in Oklahoma.
48) BRADEN SPICER
LB – UNION
Braden Spicer is a prototypical Union linebacker and is starting to evolve into a college prospect that several D1 schools are noticing. Those schools were recruiting Union linebacker Kyrei Fisher last season and started taking a look at Spicer. The senior linebacker has a chance to be a solid inside linebacker prospect. If he continues to grow as a prospect, he’ll get more attention this fall.
49) BRAXTON GEORGE
RB – WESTMOORE
Westmoore’s Braxton George is one half of a great running back duo for the Jaguars. Teamed with Garrett King, the Jaguars have one of the better backfields in the state. However, it’s George that has started getting noticed by some D1 schools. George is an explosive runner with some deceptive speed in the open field. George is a big reason why Westmoore could be lighting up scoreboards this fall.
50) TUCKER PAWLEY
RB – BIXBY
It seems like all Bixby produces lately is championships and workhorse running backs. First it was Nic Roller and now it’s Tucker Pawley. All Pawley did in his first season as the starter was rush for over 2,000 yards and help carry Bixby to their third straight state title. Running behind perhaps the best offensive line in the state, everyone will be looking to see what Pawley does for an encore. Don’t overlook what Pawley can do for the Spartans in the passing game as well.
51) HUNTER RICHARD
DL – EDMOND NORTH
Edmond North’s Hunter Richard is yet another defensive lineman prospect that has shown a lot of versatility in his game. While his future may be on the inside as a defensive tackle, he can also step outside as a defensive end. Richard’s motor is what separates him from some of the other defensive tackle prospects. A big senior season could help Richard climb into the top 50 or even higher.
52) JOSH SHARP
ATH – BERRYHILL
We saw first hand how much of an impact Josh Sharp can have on a football game. In a dominating win over Locust Grove, Sharp had an impact in the running game, passing game and on defense Similar to a lot of athletes in this ranking, the question is what will Sharp be at the next level. The more we watch his tape, the more we think he’d fit as a slot receiver in the right offense.
53) BRAEDEN McLAUGHLIN
OL – BISHOP McGUINNESS
When you look at Bishop McGuinness, most eyes go to offensive lineman Owen Condon, one of the top ranked offensive linemen in the country. However, you look closer at that offensive line specifically and you start noticing another potential D1 prospect. Braeden McLaughlin is a prospect to watch this fall. He could really blow up with a strong senior season.
54) ELIJAH SMOOT
WR – BEGGS
One of the fastest risers up the recruiting rankings is Beggs wide receiver Elijah Smoot. The Beggs standout has had a great spring and summer performing at camps and combines. He wasn’t an attention-grabbing playmaker last season but that will change this year. Smoot has the size and speed to be a solid receiver prospect. A big senior season will allow Smoot to be a breakout recruit this fall.
55) DAYLON FIGURES
DB – UNION
Similar to McLaughlin at McGuinness, Union’s Daylon Figures plays in the same defensive backfield as Patrick Fields, one of the country’s top safety prospects. However, Figures has already started making a name for himself on the recruiting scene and his stock is only going to rise from here. Figures is a strong hard-hitting prospect that is great at coming up and stopping the run.
56) ELIJAH FISHER
ATH – EDMOND NORTH
Edmond North’s Elijah Fisher is an intriguing prospect to watch this fall. He does a little bit of everything for Edmond North. Whether it’s on offense as a wide receiver or on the defensive side as a defensive back. Fisher is a player we like a lot that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention from D1 colleges yet. That all could change this fall. Fisher has all the abilities to rise up this ranking.
57) CHASE VANCE
OL – OOLOGAH
When you have to go up against an All State prospect like defensive end Brock Martin in practice, it’s going to make you stronger. That’s the hope for offensive lineman Chase Vance, who’s one of the more underrated offensive lineman prospects in the state. Because the position is so deep in the 2018 class, it’s easy to overlook a guy like Vance. However, that would be a big mistake as the guard is starting to come on.
58) MIKE EDWARDS
DL – MUSKOGEE
Muskogee defensive lineman Mike Edwards is a name to watch this fall. While the other defensive linemen in this ranking have established themselves as D1 prospects, Edwards is still working. However, all the tools are there for Edwards to have a breakout season. In every class, we see prospects emerge during their senior season. Don’t be surprised if one of those prospects is Edwards this fall.
59) WIL AMOS
ATH – AFTON
Afton’s Wil Amos is a very intriguing prospect that is getting widely overlooked with Oklahoma’s 2018 class. He’s one of the best small school players in the state and has the ability to play both sides of the ball. However, at this point, we’re not sure what his natural position would be at the next level. He still has some time to find it, and if he does, he could make a move up.
60) BRYCE ALONSO
LB – BISHOP KELLEY
Bishop Kelley’s Bryce Alonso has all the physical tools and can really raise his recruiting stock if he has a stellar senior campaign. If that happens, look for Alonso to climb up the rankings. Alonso’s athleticism is something to watch this fall as well. We could end up seeing Alonso playing at defensive end. He also plays for the Comets at tight end. It wouldn’t be crazy if the next time Alonso is ranked, it’s as an athlete.
61) TRASE JEFFRIES
OL – BROKEN ARROW
When you look at Broken Arrow’s offensive line, some eyes will immediately go to 2020 phenom Andrew Raym, who’s already garnered national attention. However, the Tigers have a senior that is a solid offensive lineman prospect as well for the 2018 class. Trase Jeffries will more than likely be a guard or a center at the next level. He shows good technique in his work but will need to continue to get bigger and stronger.
62) TREY MILLER
LB – JENKS
This ranking has a lot to do with potential. Jenks linebacker Trey Miller has all the physical tools to be a really good linebacker prospect. We’re waiting to see that translate to on the field this fall. If Miller is able to have a really good senior season, he’ll have the ability to jump up the rankings. Miller is big enough that he could even go down to the defensive line and be a rushing defensive end.
63) ISAAC STOOPS
DB – NORMAN NORTH
This is the first time we’ve had a pair of twins in the OKPreps Rankings but that’s what you get with the Stoops brothers. Isaac Stoops is mainly a defensive back prospect but will be spending some time at wide receiver this fall. You could consider Stoops to be ranked as an athlete as his future at the college level could be on either side of the ball. However, right now, we like him as a defensive back prospect.
64) JAY’QUAN LINCOLN
ATH – LAWTON
Lawton’s Jay’Quan Lincoln is an absolute playmaker on both sides of the ball. As Lawton nearly won a state title a year ago, Lincoln was making the bulk of his plays on the offensive side of the ball. However, it’s not a given that he’s going to be a wide receiver at the next level. He has shown some skill as a defensive back prospect. However, it’s hard to argue with his offensive productivity.
65) MITCH KULKIN
LB – JENKS
Linebacker Mitch Kulkin is the latest in a long line of active and disruptive linebackers for Jenks. Kulkin doesn’t have the prototypical size but you can’t knock him when you take a look at his game on the field. Kulkin is a player that you can’t overlook when it comes to the 2018 prospects. He might not get as much attention as other prospects, but he has the potential to have a really great career at the next level.
66) JASON HARRIS
LB – BOOKER T WASHINGTON
Booker T Washington linebacker Jason Harris may be one of the more underrated prospects in Oklahoma’s 2018 class. The backer can absolutely play ball. He has good instincts and is one of the harder hitters in the Tulsa area. However, the reason he’s not higher is the perception of his size. Some may think he’s too small. But the play on the field is reason enough to pay attention to him.
67) JAY LAIRD
DB – WOODWARD
There’s no secret that Woodward is “out there” as in all the way out in western Oklahoma and can get overlooked at times. That won’t be the case this season with Jay Laird taking the field for the Boomers. Laird is a solid college prospect in an absolutely stacked defensive back group. Laird has good size and speed but is still waiting for that first big break. That could come during his senior season.
68) JACKSON GREENWOOD
ATH – BLANCHARD
When you watch the film of Blanchard’s Jackson Greenwood, you get the visual of the phrase “bull in a china shop”. The kid is an absolute wrecking force whether he’s on offense or defense. It appears that the defensive side of the ball will be the most likely fit for Greenwood at the next level. He has all the tools to be a legitimate inside linebacker prospect.
69) DAVIS GOVRIK
DL – BISHOP KELLEY
Bishop Kelley defensive lineman Davis Govrik is the man up front for a stout Comet defense that returns plenty of talent this year. Govrik has already garnered some attention on the recruiting scene and that can continue with another strong season this fall. However, the biggest question mark with Govrik is what will his position be at the next level. He’s almost in that “tweener” stage between a DE and DT.
70) DYLAN CHINN
WR – OWASSO
Owasso wide receiver Dylan Chinn is a name on the rise after a strong showing this summer. The Owasso wide receiver is a deep threat for an Owasso offense that will be throwing the ball around this fall. Chinn has good physical size and looks like he’s primed for a breakout season. If that ends up happening, he’ll shoot up the rankings and turn into another solid WR prospect.
71) WYATT BERGNER
ATH – MARLOW
The one thing that appeals to us the most about Wyatt Bergner’s game is all of the versatility. Bergner could end up being a variety of things at the next level. At the high school level, he’s used mainly as a running back and a safety. The defensive side of the ball is probably the best bet for the Marlow standout. Although, he’s proven he can handle a solid workload as a running back.
72) RAE’QUAN WICKS
ATH – SOUTHMOORE
We continue the versatility theme with Southmoore’s Rae’Quan Wicks, who even admitted to us at OKPreps Media Day that he does a little bit of everything. Whether it’s on offense or defense, Wicks is a player to watch for Southmoore. He may be considered undersized by some, but he has the potential to have a breakout season for the Sabercats this fall.
73) LAWRENCE HARRIS
TE – UNION
Union tight end Lawrence Harris is one of the few tight end prospects in the state where his blocking is the thing that stands out the most on his film. Harris is a great blocker and even has the lengthy frame that he could turn into an offensive lineman later on in his career. Whether he’s lining up on the end of the line or in the backfield, Harris is a dangerous weapon for the Union offense.
74) TREY MARION
OL – HERITAGE HALL
Heritage Hall offensive lineman Trey Marion is in an absolutely loaded offensive line group. However, he definitely possesses the talent to become a college lineman. Size-wise, colleges will be able to be creative with how they use Marion, whether that’s as a tackle or more of an interior lineman. Most years, a prospect like Marion is higher, but the OL group in Oklahoma this year is stout.
75) MONTRELL WILSON
QB – MILLWOOD
Millwood standout Montrell Wilson was one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the state last year. Wilson was a big reason that the Falcons had a perfect season and were seemingly unstoppable on offense. Wilson isn’t getting enough credit for his abilities on the football field. He’s without a doubt one of the more underrated prospects in the Oklahoma 2018 class.
