We're coming toward the tail end of the spring evaluation period for football recruiting, and it’s the final week of spring practice for Oklahoma high schools. So the SoonerNation team is hitting the road to see what is happening around the state.
Here is a look at the schools we'll be visiting and the notable recruits at each program:
Broken Arrow, Okla.
• 2014 LB Gyasi Akem (6-foot-2, 210 pounds): Akem has made his name at spring camps. He has interest from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Missouri, but it is still early in his recruitment.
• 2013 DE Frankie Davis (6-3, 215): He has good size for a defensive end but knows he needs to put on more weight. Has an offer from Arkansas State and interest from Kansas, Kansas State and Tulsa.
• 2014 QB Coleman Key (6-4, 199): One of the top 2014 prospects in the state, Key transferred to Broken Arrow from Owasso, Okla., last month. Coleman has performed well at spring camps and was at Oklahoma’s Red-White spring game.
• 2013 CB Cre Moore (5-11, 168): Moore has crept up on people in the spring, including picking up his first offer from Memphis. He attended Oklahoma State’s spring game and has interest from Arkansas, Iowa State and Tulsa.
• 2014 RB Devon Thomas (5-11, 190): Thomas, who already has offers from OU and Oklahoma State, is arguably the top in-state prospect for the class of 2014. He was at OU’s junior day and at the spring game. He is coming off an incredible sophomore season and said he is only bigger and stronger since then.
• 2013 RB Cameron Wrenn (6-0, 190): He and Thomas are unquestionably the best one-two punch in the state at running back. Wrenn has been a little quiet this spring but his play will help keep him on the radar.
Colleyville (Texas) Heritage
• 2013 QB Cody Thomas (6-5, 220): Thomas is the latest Sooners commit and has been an OU fan for a while. OU quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel let it be known Thomas was one of his top targets and he kept pursuing. And even though he is a quality baseball prospect, early indications are that football is his future.
Edmond (Okla.) Memorial
• 2014 ATH Michael Farmer (6-2, 210): Arizona State is the first school to acknowledge Farmer, showing him strong interest. OU entered the game last month, inviting him to the spring game. He should play running back in high school but is more suited as a defensive end/linebacker in college.
