Ranking Updated: July 28, 2018
1) ANDREW RAYM
OL – BROKEN ARROW
Broken Arrow offensive lineman Andrew Raym has been on everyone’s radar since starting for the Tigers as a freshman. It’s not very often that a freshman not only plays but starts at a school with the enrollment of Broken Arrow. However, Raym has backed up all the hype with his dominating play on the football field. He remains in the top spot in the 2020 class.
2) DEUCE MAYBERRY
DB – OWASSO
A player who has absolutely sky-rocketed up our charts and rankings is Owasso’s Deuce Mayberry. The younger brother of current Kansas Jayhawk Kyle Mayberry is an absolute star in the making. While he didn’t get as much shine because he shared the defensive backfield with All American Josh Proctor, all that will change this fall.
3) MYLES SLUSHER
DB – BROKEN ARROW
Broken Arrow standout Myles Slusher is right there with Mayberry as the top defensive backs in Oklahoma’s 2020 class. In all honesty, the separation between one or the other is not that big as both are terrific players. Slusher is a more polished player right now as he has a knack for making big plays.
4) DOMINIC RICHARDSON
RB – BISHOP McGUINNESS
Bishop McGuinness fans will look at the 2017 season and wonder what could have been. Dominic Richardson was one of the breakout stars of the 2017 season, running for over 2,000 yards in a little over 9 games. However, a leg injury prevented Richardson from running in the playoffs. He’s back to 100% and looking to make up for lost time this fall.
5) JJ HESTER
WR – BOOKER T WASHINGTON
Booker T Washington has one of their more talented teams in recent memory and a big part of that on the offensive side is the emergence of wide receiver JJ Hester. The Hornet standout was a deep threat for Booker T Washington’s passing attack and blew up as a prospect following their state championship season. While Houston and Nance translate more to the slot at the next level, Hester is a prototypical outside receiver.
6) ELI RUSS
OL – PLAINVIEW
Whenever you have a mammoth of a prospect that plays a lower class of football, it’s always tough to figure out if the prospect is truly special or is just bigger than his opponent. With Plainview’s Eli Russ, it’s very simple. He’s bigger than every opponent and he’s indeed a special prospect in Oklahoma’s 2020 class. Russ is absolutely dominating at the point of attack.
7) ISAIAH JACOBS
RB – OWASSO
Owasso’s Isaiah Jacobs was limited last year as he backed up Bryce Cabrera, an OKPreps All State 2nd Team selection. Jacobs will now move into Cabrera’s role in the Ram offense and things should pick up in a big way this fall. Jacobs is a fantastic runner and will also be able to shine catching passes out of the backfield for the Rams.
8) JAYDEN GARNER
ATH – SKIATOOK
There is perhaps no other prospect in the 2020 class that is as versatile as Jayden Garner from Skiatook. Garner was so dynamic for the Bulldogs that they would get creative with ways to get the playmaker the football. Whether it’s offense, defense or even special teams, Garner was a must-watch athlete any time he had the ball in his hands.
9) ANTHONY BLAND
WR – STILLWATER
He has yet to step on the field in Oklahoma under the Friday night lights but it’s hard to discredit the talent. Stillwater immediately got better when Anthony Bland, a talented receiver from San Diego moved in this offseason. Bland stands at 6’3 and has absolute wheels. He shined last year as a sophomore in California. If he can match last year’s production, he’ll be an absolute star here in Oklahoma.
10) NIKALE DAVIS
DL – WESTMOORE
Westmoore graduated a bunch of talent on the offensive side of the ball but Nikale Davis looks to become a leader of the Jaguar defense. Davis emerged last fall as a playmaker for the Jags and has had a stellar offseason. Coaches around the OKC area have nothing but positive things to say about the abilities of Davis and what he could end up being.
11) DANIEL HISHAW
ATH – MOORE
Moore has certainly had a tough time during this decade. However, in 2017, Daniel Hishaw put the Lions on his back and they became competitive once again. Hishaw was dynamite at quarterback for the Lions and could end up seeing himself as just a quarterback prospect if he continues to progress at the position.
12) BRYNDEN WALKER
DL – BISHOP McGUINNESS
One of several prospects on this list that when it’s all said and done, could end up being much higher. Brynden Walker is an absolute beast up front for McGuinness and this could be a breakout season for the Irish pass rusher. Walker is quick, physical and dangerous at the point of attack. The upside on Walker is through the roof.
13) BRENNAN PRESLEY
ATH – BIXBY
Bixby’s Brennan Presley was a breakout star for the Spartans during his sophomore season. At first, Presley was Bixby’s shutdown corner making things happen on defense. And over the course of the season, he became Bixby’s home run threat at wide receiver. Whether it’s offense or defense, Presley shined in 2017.
14) JAYLEN MOSS
DL – BROKEN ARROW
Continuing a theme like Walker at Bishop McGuinness, Jaylen Moss finds himself here because of an immense amount of potential. Moss has all the physical tools to become one of the more elite pass rushers in the Tulsa area and we started to see shades of that in 2017. If he picks up where he left off, watch out.
15) MONTRELL COZART
DL – BISHOP KELLEY
It’s getting a little repetitive at this point but the depth of defensive lineman prospects with extremely high ceilings is deep this year. The next prospect that fits that description and to keep an eye on is Bishop Kelley’s Montrell Cozart. Physically, Cozart is obviously gifted and fits what you’re looking for. More production this fall will open plenty of eyes around the state.
16) ELIJAH WRIGHT
ATH – VIAN
We’ve talked about it before but the thing that is most impressive about Elijah Wright is his instincts. No matter what the offense is running, it seems that Wright always knows where the football is going to be. Wright also is a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball. However, it’s his instincts on defense that shine.
17) GUNNAR GUNDY
QB – STILLWATER
Gundy. Stillwater. You can connect the dots. Yes, Gunnar Gundy is the son of OSU head coach Mike Gundy. However, the Pioneer quarterback is making a name for himself after a very successful sophomore season. Gundy’s efficient passing had the Pioneers back in the playoffs and had Stillwater as a top five team for the majority of the season.
18) QUINLAN GANTHER
QB – DEL CITY
We wrote about Preston Colbert and his breakout season. Perhaps we’re looking at the next potential breakout star and he’s right down the road from the Bomber QB. Del City’s Quinlan Ganther had a strong sophomore campaign and has been hard at work this offseason. Don’t be surprised if Ganther becomes one of the breakout stars this fall.
19) BLAKE NOWELL
WR – PLAINVIEW
Plainview’s Blake Nowell is an absolute hidden gem at wide receiver that has a big upside. Plainview was at their best when Nowell had the ball in his hands. Whether it was in the passing game, running game or even in the return game. Nowell has great size and good speed and should only continue to grow his game as he heads into his junior season this fall.
20) CADE HORTON
QB – NORMAN
While he may be ranked 20th in the 2020 class for football, Norman’s Cade Horton is at or near the top for baseball prospects. Currently committed for baseball, Horton is a dynamic passer on the football field as well. His future looks brighter on the diamond but Horton has expressed an interest and desire to be able to play both sports at the next level.
21) ELI WILLIAMS
QB – SAPULPA
Sapulpa quarterback Eli Williams is definitely a name on the rise as a prospect to keep an eye on. Physically, Williams not only passes the eye test but aces it. He has D1 talent in his DNA as his older brother Dae is currently a running back at Louisville. More reps on the field will allow Williams to potentially grow into one of the elite QB’s in Oklahoma.
22) BROCK BORIN
TE – ADAIR
Adair has been an absolute powerhouse in football for years now. However, they aren’t putting out big-time prospects year after year. That’s not the case with the 2020 class. They have one of the top physically-ready athletes in the class. Brock Borin could end up being a defensive or even offensive lineman, but for right now, we have him at tight end.
23) SERGIO GARCIA
OL – SHAWNEE
Okay, when you think Sergio Garcia, you think golfer. Shawnee’s version is the complete opposite of Spaniard. Shawnee’s Garcia is a massive offensive lineman prospect that could end up being a variety of things at the next level along the offensive line. Shawnee recently put out Creed Humphrey and now have another intriguing offensive lineman prospect.
24 KAUNOR ASHLEY
ATH – MUSKOGEE
Muskogee is going to get creative with how they use standout Kaunor Ashley. The versatile Rougher has shown the ability to make plays and have an impact on the game, no matter what position he’s playing. Ashley is flying somewhat under the radar right now but a strong junior season could open up some eyes and bring his name to the forefront.
25) JESSE RUDD
RB – FORT GIBSON
Similar to a few other prospects on this list, Fort Gibson’s Jesse Rudd has playmaker in his blood and DNA. Older brother Rusty was one of the top prospects in Oklahoma’s 2018 class. Now, Jesse looks to blaze his own path and has the chance to have a breakout season for the Tigers this year. He showed promise last year as a sophomore.
