Is the Class of 2014 crop of in-state talent the best Oklahoma has seen since 2006? With six recruits in the ESPN Watch List, it’s shaping up to be a busy recruiting year in the Sooner State. For the next three weeks, SoonerNation is going to profile the OKPreps’ 14 for ’14: a look at some of the top names and where they stand with OU.

Watch List OLB Gyasi Akem (Broken Arrow, Okla./Broken Arrow, 6-2, 210)
2012 stats: 58 tackles, 5 sacks.

When OU announced its original junior day of Jan. 11 with an invite to Akem, it came as a bit of a shock. Not because Akem isn’t worthy but because the Sooners hadn’t really spent that much time looking into the Watch List prospect.
