OKPreps 2017 Rankings

Ranking Updated: February 10th

1) LEVI DRAPER –  Collinsville – Linebacker

Levi Draper was one of the top names to follow during the 2015 season. Draper already has all the tools to be one of the best defensive recruits to come out of Oklahoma in quite some time. Before his junior year even began, Draper had nearly every school in the country going after his talents. Draper will be a name to watch for a long time.

LAST RANKING: 1ST

2) TRE BROWN –  Union – Defensive Back

Union cornerback Tre Brown has elite speed and proves that during track season. When watching how Union utilizes Brown in all three phases of the game, you can’t help but think about Dominique Franks back in 2005. Brown is a little smaller than Franks but has a similar game. If that’s any indication, Brown will be one of the most sought after recruits in Oklahoma.

LAST RANKING: 2ND

3) JUSTIN BROILES –  John Marshall – Defensive Back

We really underrated John Marshall’s Justin Broiles in our last batch of rankings. Broiles will be right there with Union’s Brown for the top defensive back prospect in Oklahoma’s 2017 class. Broiles is a shut down defensive back who is physically mature. Broiles already has the attention of multiple D1 schools. Draper, Brown and Broiles are a step ahead of the rest of the 2017 class.

LAST RANKING: 8TH

4) MARCUS MAYS –  Edison – Athlete

Edison’s Marcus Mays might be the biggest “highlight maker” in Oklahoma’s 2017 class. It seems like every time OKPreps sees Mays, he’s making a huge play that just makes you drop your jaw. Whether it’s on offense or defense, Mays will be a play maker at the next level. Mays has the ability to go up and get a jump ball, despite being only 6’2. Don’t overlook this future star.

LAST RANKING: 3RD

5) CREED HUMPHREY –  Shawnee – Offensive Lineman

Shawnee offensive lineman Creed Humphrey is the top offensive lineman in the Oklahoma 2017 rankings. Humphrey was impressive when OKPreps saw him at Mustang’s team camp. Humphrey was dominant on the camp setting last spring and summer. Humphrey is starting to blow up and that will only continue as we head into the spring and summer months.

LAST RANKING: 6TH

6) RUBELL GOE –  Bishop McGuinness – Wide Receiver

We were partially right about Bishop McGuinness receiver Rubell Goe when we released our last rankings. While we were dead wrong with his ranking being 31st, we did say he was a name to remember and could have a breakout season in 2015. That’s exactly what Goe did and we expect him to really excel this spring and summer and start hearing from colleges very soon.

LAST RANKING: 31ST

7) BRENDON EVERS –  Bixby – Defensive Lineman

Bixby defensive tackle Brendon Evers went from widely unknown to a potential D1 prospect in the 2017 class last summer. Evers was very impressive when OKPreps 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. The Bixby standout had a big second half of the season and is primed to really breakout.

LAST RANKING: 13TH

8) ADRIAN WOLFORD –  Meeker – Offensive Lineman

Meeker lineman Adrian Wolford is an interesting prospect who will be a name to remember this spring and summer. Wolford should rival Creed Humphrey as the top offensive lineman in the 2017 class. Wolford is aggressive on both sides of the line of scrimmage but his future is on offense. He has an explosive first step and is a prospect to keep an eye on.

LAST RANKING: 12TH

9) QUINDON LEWIS –  Southmoore – Defensive Back

This time last year, Quindon Lewis was near the top if not at the top of the 2017 rankings in Oklahoma. That shows you how deep the 2017 class is in Oklahoma, especially at the defensive back position. Lewis is outstanding on both sides of the ball. By the time the next rankings come out, Lewis might be listed as an athlete because he’s excelling both at receiver and on defense.

LAST RANKING: 4TH

10) REESE LEITAO –  Jenks – Tight End

After checking him out last spring, Jenks tight end Reese Leitao was one of the emerging prospects in the 2017 class and was a name we followed during the 2015 season. Oklahoma has produced several quality tight ends over the last few signing classes but Leitao might be the most physical of the bunch. Leitao’s specialty is taking a defensive end or linebacker out of the picture. 

LAST RANKING: 22ND

11) KJ LEE – Wagoner – Linebacker

We’ve been high on Wagoner linebacker KJ Lee ever since we saw him in his second varsity game as a freshman. Even then, he stood out on the field. Lee continues to mature physically and will be one of the top 2017 prospects to watch. Lee might get overshadowed by Draper being in the same class, but Lee has the game to play at the next level. Lee is a natural inside linebacker.

LAST RANKING: 7TH

12) BROCK MARTIN – Oologah – Defensive Lineman

Oologah defensive end Brock Martin made a big jump up this list after having an impressive 2015 season, despite missing the first five weeks. Martin is primed to continue his momentum into the camp scene and spring ball. Martin is a great pass rusher off the edge. The Mustangs have a gem in the 2017 class waiting to shine after missing the first half of the season.

LAST RANKING: 24TH

13) NICK ROBINSON – Putnam City West – Tight End

We’ve known about Nick Robinson as a basketball player since his freshman season. However, it wasn’t until his junior year that he really broke out as a top football recruit in the 2017 class. Robinson is a big bodied tight end who has the speed to line up at receiver and go up and get a jump ball. Robinson is the biggest riser in the 2017 class and could end up being even higher.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

14) MATT HARMAN – Cashion – Quarterback

Cashion’s Matt Harman is the best quarterback that you haven’t heard of yet. Harman is going to be chasing after the records that were set by Locust Grove’s Mason Fine. Harman is close to the 10,000 yard mark. He threw for 52 touchdowns while adding 10 touchdowns on the ground. Harman has the chance to be a must see talent next year. The Cashion product is the highest ranked quarterback in the 2017 class.

LAST RANKING: 10TH

15) BRANDON GEORGE – Jones – Quarterback

Jones quarterback Brandon George moves up the list and is the second best quarterback in the 2017 class behind Cashion’s Harman. George really improved his numbers in 2015, going from a nice quarterback prospect with some upside to a player of the year candidate after a stellar year. George is a dual-threat quarterback standing around 6’1 who can make a lot happen in an offense.

LAST RANKING: 19TH

16) EVAN FIELDS – Midwest City – Defensive Back

The first of two Midwest City defensive backs to make the 2017 top 50 rankings. Evan Fields is a standout at the safety position and already has several D1 colleges looking his way. Fields isn’t as physically gifted as Will Sunderland from the 2015 class, however Fields has a very similar game. Fields absolutely flies to the ball and has a high field IQ.

LAST RANKING: 5TH

17) GERVARRIUS OWENS – Southmoore – Linebacker

It’s no secret by now, Southmoore has some of the best young talent in the state. The Sabercats are going to be a threat on offense and defense over the next few years. One of those defensive stars is linebacker Gervarrius Owens. The Southmoore junior has ideal size for the linebacker position and has decent speed to match. Owens can also drop back in coverage and make plays.

LAST RANKING: 21ST

18) CADE MASHBURN – Norman North – Linebacker

One of the 2017 prospects we’re looking forward to seeing up close this spring is Norman North linebacker Cade Mashburn. If his tape is any indication, Mashburn might be the hardest hitter in Oklahoma’s 2017 class. The Norman North standout looks like a heat seeking missile on defense and does a great job defending the pass as well as stuffing the run.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

19) CHRIS WALKER – Fort Gibson – Running Back

Chris Walker burst onto the scene as a sophomore. He was unstoppable in 2014 but ran into the injury bug in 2015. The entire Fort Gibson football team took a step back after making it to the 4A semifinals the year before. When at full strength, Walker could rise up this list with a strong spring and summer. A bruiser of a back who has decent speed to breakaway from defenders.

LAST RANKING: 11TH

20) BARON ODOM – Ada – Tight End

This time last year, we thought that Ada’s Baron Odom would be the best pass catching tight end in the 2017 rankings. That was until the emergence of PC West’s Nick Robinson. However, Odom is starting to improve as a blocker in the running game. Odom is still a guy to follow with a high ceiling. Don’t be surprised if he jumps up in the next batch of rankings.

LAST RANKING: 14TH

21) DAWSON EVANS – Heritage Hall – Athlete

Heritage Hall’s Dawson Evans might be the hardest hitting defensive back on this list. At safety, Evans can be a ball hawk but it’s when he’s lowering the shoulder that he’s at his best. Evans is listed as an athlete because you can’t overlook what he can do on offense lining up in the slot. Evans hasn’t showcased his offensive talents as much because of the run-first offense at Heritage Hall.

LAST RANKING: 16TH

22) JORDON CURTIS – Jenks – Running Back

When you’re a running back at Jenks, you always have company. It seems like every year the Trojans are using two or even sometimes three running backs. The best of the bunch this year will be Jordon Curtis. The Jenks standout stands around 6’0 and weighs over 180 pounds. What really separates him from some of the other running backs is his receiving ability out of the backfield.

LAST RANKING: 15TH

23) ISAIAH THOMAS – Memorial – Defensive End

Memorial defensive end Isaiah Thomas was a name we thought might blow up this spring. It’s already happened. The two-sport standout picked up a total of four D1 offers from Big 12 and SEC schools in one day. Thomas is a guy who is an intriguing prospect to pay attention to as more people start to take notice. We’re more familiar with Thomas on the basketball floor but are looking forward to spring ball.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

24) BJ BRADBURY – Adair – Quarterback

Adair quarterback BJ Bradbury missed the first half of the 2015 season and was still a critical part of Adair’s championship run. Bradbury will be a four year starter at quarterback for the Warriors and has the size to play at the next level. He’s a dual-threat quarterback who would prefer to stay in the pocket but can beat you in the run game. Bradbury is also an all state caliber defensive back.

LAST RANKING: 20TH

25) TRE CURRY – Lawton – Running Back

While Tre Curry didn’t light the world on fire during his junior season, you could see a major improvement as he became the number one guy in the Lawton backfield. And if we’ve learned anything about the running backs that Lawton produce, by the time they’re done with their senior seasons, they’re must watch guys. Look for Curry to have a big senior season and rise up this list.

LAST RANKING: 27TH

26) ANTHONY LOVE – Lawton MacArthur – Quarterback

Staying in Lawton with MacArthur quarterback Anthony Love. The Lawton Mac signal caller lost nearly his entire junior season due to a torn ACL, otherwise he might be higher on this list and threatening some of the other top quarterbacks in the state. Love’s rehab from the ACL and how he bounces back will be a big key this spring and summer as he tries to get back onto the field.

LAST RANKING: 23RD

27) ANDRE HARRIS JR. – Putnam City North – Offensive Lineman

The last time we ranked Putnam City North’s Andre Harris, we had him as a defensive tackle. It seems like offense is the way that Harris will go at the next level and we don’t blame him. At 6’4 and over 300 pounds, Harris will be a monster interior lineman if he continues to develop his skills. He’s still relatively raw but he’s a guy that, physically, is up there with some of the other OL on this list.

LAST RANKING: 29TH

28) AJ ARCHAMBO – Bartlesville – Wide Receiver

Every year we find guys that we just didn’t know about before the football season. Bartlesville wide receiver AJ Archambo is one of those guys when we look back to 2015. Archambo is a big target and has good speed and excellent hands. We want to see more of Archambo this spring and summer during camps and various workouts, but he could jump up into the top 20.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

29) TREY GOOCH – Putnam City West – Quarterback

Gooch was one of the last guys we ranked in our last batch of rankings. We wanted to see how he would perform on Friday nights and he was impressive. He has the physical traits that you want in a quarterback. He’s 6’4 and can move around in the pocket. He’s another guy we want to see more of in person but could easily rise up this list. His ceiling is incredibly high.

LAST RANKING: 37TH

30) KAIEEM CAESAR – Cache – Athlete

Cache standout Kaieem Caesar is the perfect definition of a “tweener”. He’s just a little too big to be a linebacker but not big enough to be a defensive lineman. However, when you watch the tape, Caesar is incredibly explosive and could end up being a defensive end or even an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Caesar is a guy who uses his leverage well because it’s a must to get around bigger lineman.

LAST RANKING: 37TH

31) SETH BOOMER – Collinsville – Quarterback

Collinsville quarterback Seth Boomer is in the same ballpark as Putnam City West’s Trey Gooch. Boomer is a quarterback prospect who very well could jump up the rankings. Boomer has a high ceiling at the quarterback position and has showed the ability to be up there with the other quarterbacks in this class. Before we make that jump, we want to see more of the Collinsville signal caller.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

32) KENDALL SWEET – Booker T Washington – Defensive Back

Booker T Washington produces top talent year in and year out. Kendall Sweet might be the next in line at Booker T Washington and could very well jump up into the top 20. However, we want to see more of Sweet in person and figure out what exactly he translates to at the next level. He might have been overshadowed by Kyle Mayberry and Justice Hill. Not any longer.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

33) CALEB POWELL – Oklahoma Christian Academy – Athlete

It’s not very often that we get a prospect from Oklahoma Christian Academy but that’s what we have here. Caleb Powell checks in at 33 and is a standout to watch this spring and summer. He plays quarterback and safety but will more than likely be a safety at the next level. However, in an option offense, he could stay under center.

LAST RANKING: 18TH

34) DEMONTRE GATEWOOD – Midwest City – Defensive Back

Midwest City’s Demontre Gatewood  is yet another 2017 Midwest City defensive back prospect on the 2017 rankings. Gatewood lines up at corner back right now but his future position might be elsewhere. He’s not the best fit physically for linebacker. The Bomber defender might join teammate Evan Fields at safety at the next level.

LAST RANKING: 9TH

35) SHAMARI BROOKS – Union – Running Back

Union running back Shamari Brooks burst onto the scene as a sophomore, sharing the backfield with the school’s all-time leading rusher Tyler Adkins. Now it’s Brooks’ turn as the feature running back in the Union offense. Brooks could end up higher on this list but first he has to prove that he can handle the expanded work load as the #1 back. We have no reason to doubt that Brooks can handle it.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

36) DELVIN JORDAN – Sand Springs – Linebacker

Sand Springs linebacker Delvin Jordan will be a name to follow during the spring and summer and on into his senior season. Jordan lines up as a linebacker but doesn’t have the prototypical size for that position at the next level. However, Jordan’s skill set could translate to the next level and he could end up being a safety or bulk up and stay at linebacker.

LAST RANKING: 35TH

37) JORDAN ROBERTS – Ardmore – Defensive Back

Ardmore defensive back Jordan Roberts could end up being higher on this list and up with some of the other elite defensive backs in the 2017 class. He doesn’t have the speed or quickness that some of the other defensive backs but his size is ideal for a cover corner back. His ability to tackle in open space also separates him from some of the other prospects in Oklahoma.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

38) TANNER GRIFFIN – Bixby – Quarterback

Tanner Griffin appears to be headed to play baseball at Oklahoma State. Griffin has been committed to Cowboy baseball since last spring. The Bixby standout also has a future on the gridiron as well. Griffin will be a three-year starter at quarterback and has shown an ability to be among one of the state’s best. He is highly efficient in the pocket and stays efficient when on the run.

LAST RANKING: 17TH

39) MALCOLM RODRIGUEZ – Wagoner – Athlete

Wagoner standout Malcolm Rodriguez has been a critical part of Wagoner’s back to back championship seasons. Rodriguez stood out as a sophomore and continues to get better and better each time he gets on the field. He doubles as a quarterback and a safety but similar to Powell at OCA, Rodriguez will more than likely be a safety at the next level. Don’t underestimate his hitting ability as a safety.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

40) GARRETT FLANARY – Lincoln Christian – Defensive Tackle

This prospect really has our attention and could end up being the fastest riser up these rankings. Lincoln Christian defensive tackle Garrett Flanary is an absolute wrecking ball up front and plays for the Bulldogs on the offensive and defensive lines. However, with his size, standing around 6’4 and weighs around 260 pounds, his future is on defense. Flanary is a prospect to watch this spring and summer.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

41) GRANT HILL – Edmond Memorial – Offensive Lineman

At 6’3 and weighing around 275 pounds, Edmond Memorial’s Grant Hill is the perfect candidate for an interior lineman. Whether that’s at center or at one of the guard spots, it’s too early to tell. Hill does a great job getting to the second level to take out linebackers. Hill isn’t the biggest lineman in this class, but his skill set is impressive. 

LAST RANKING: 28TH

42) NATHAN SCHAFFNER – Collinsville – Offensive Lineman

Collinsville’s Nathan Schaffner stands around 6’5 and weighs around 275 pounds. He’s extremely raw and has some work to do, but he has the ability and the tools to become a solid lineman prospect. Compared to Hill, Schaffner has the size but lacks the skill set right now. That could change this spring and summer. If it does, watch him rocket up this list. 

LAST RANKING: 34TH

43) TRENTON BELL – Duncan – Running Back

We’re looking forward to seeing Duncan product Trenton Bell at some point this spring or summer. On paper, Bell is among one of the best running backs in the state. He stands around 6’2 and weighs nearly 200 pounds. His game is physical and in between the tackles, however he can bounce it to the outside to beat defenders. Bell could end up being much higher then 43.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

44) CHARLIE KOLAR – Norman North – Tight End

Norman North’s Charlie Kolar is a big bodied receiver who shows the ability to stay at the line of scrimmage and block down field. Kolar is the younger brother of John Kolar, who signed with Oklahoma State out of the 2015 class. Kolar is a prospect who could end up having a huge spring and summer if he continues to elevate his game.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

45) TONY RAYBURN – Edmond Santa Fe – Defensive Back

Deer Creek’s Tony Rayburn is an undersized safety that looks more like a corner back. Rayburn is just shy of 6’0 and weighing 170 pounds. He plays more physical than his size. Rayburn could end up moving to that corner position and fit in a zone cover scheme. Rayburn shouldn’t be overlooked because of his size. He has the ability to lower his shoulder and deliver a blow.

LAST RANKING: 32ND

46) TERRON MOSES – Vian – Running Back

Terron Moses’ junior season was cut short and will return as a senior with a vengeance. Moses isn’t the biggest running back prospect but he could be the most talented running back in the 2017 class. Moses is electric in the open space and is a guy who should be higher on this list. We’re interested to see Moses this spring and summer back to 100%.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

47) KEYSHAWN SHELLS – John Marshall – Defensive Back

While most of the attention at John Marshall is paid to Justin Broiles, who ranks as the #3 overall prospect in the 2017 class. His defensive backfield teammate Keyshawn Shells shouldn’t be overlooked. Shells stands around 6’0 and weighs over 200 pounds. He could move around in the defensive backfield or even move to an interior linebacker spot in the right scheme.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

48) BRAYDEN KLUSAK – McAlester – Wide Receiver

We want to see more of McAlester’s Brayden Klusak in person but if his tape is any indication, he’ll jump up these rankings to a higher spot. Klusak has good size but isn’t the fastest wide receiver prospect in this class. However, what he lacks in speed, he makes up for with his route running ability. Klusak does a great job with his first move to get around a defender.

LAST RANKING: UNRANKED

49) MAURICE MCLENDON – Midwest City – Defensive Lineman

Perhaps we’re looking at the next DeMikal Harrison. Maurice McLendon will have his time to shine over the next several months. McLendon is starting to gain weight and add some muscle on the 6’5 frame. McLendon has had plenty of time watching on the sidelines at other Bomber defenders. Now McLendon has his time to play and standout.

LAST RANKING: 38TH

50) TYREE YORK-ALLEN – Shawnee – Wide Receiver

Shawnee’s Tyree York-Allen is a solid slot receiver prospect. He has speed but the biggest question with his game is how long will he hold up? He’s undersized at 5’10 and weighing around 155 pounds Allen was busy last spring and summer, traveling around the country to various camps and combines. He’ll do the same this spring and summer.

LAST RANKING: 36TH
