Two years ago at this point there was a junior running back who had burst onto the Oklahoma high school football scene but nobody had heard of. A year later, Jenks running back Alex Ross was committed to Oklahoma and is now a freshman for the Sooners.

This season’s diamond in the rough resides in Wagoner, Okla., with running back Lawrence Evitt.

Evitt, who is 5-foot-8 and 165 pounds, rushed for more than 700 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore. He saw limited playing time because of Kevin Peterson, who is now a freshman defensive back at Oklahoma State.
