•••• Johnny Deaton 6-2, 190, 4.6 Sand Springs Page
Here is a signal-caller that when the ball is in his hands things start to happen.
On Film–He is a brilliant all-around QB who is equally adept at throwing and running. His mobility is very good as is his arm strength. He is able to throw the deep out with authority and put the ball on the money just about every time. Exceptional while throwing on the run, he does a good job of finding open receivers, and his quick release and quick feet are invaluable in the process.
Stats–He threw for over 1,000 yds and ran for over 1,000 yds in '08 on his way to earning All-Tulsa Area honors.
Grades–His GPA is over 3.0.

••• Matt Luetjen 6-1, 194, 4.5 Locust Grove
He is not the tallest QB around but one of the more athletic ones.
On Film–He needs technique help but definitely not short on talent. He is a leader who is smart, quick footed, and he can either remain at the QB position and find a school where his talents will suit him best or become an outstanding FS prospect. On defense, he shows great range, hitting ability, and instincts. On offense, he is cool under pressure. In fact, in one game last year he ran for a long TD with 24 seconds left on the clock.
Stats–He threw for 998 and 10 TDs and ran for 1,180 yds and 15 TDs. On defense he totaled 89 tackles and caused 8 fumbles at FS.

••• Beau Marsain 6-2, 215, 4.7 Jenks
A transfer from Tulsa Metro Christian, Beau really impressed us down in San Antonio with his arm strength. This guy can throw the ball through a brick wall and has the size to run over linebackers.
On Film–He is a playmaker who knows where to throw the ball. He shows a quick release and is very accurate in short to medium range passes.
Stats–He threw for 730 yds and 9 TDs in '08. There are a good number of schools who will be watching his progress this season.

••• Dillon Wallace 6-3, 185, 4.6 Tulsa Central
I must admit that I don't know a whole lot about Dillon. During my trip through Tulsa I was not able to get film on him. Although I did see him a little on Demarco Cobb's film.
On Film–What I did see was a QB with size, arm strength, and speed. He shows nice footwork, is adept at throwing from the pocket, but dangerous while on the run. He is very accurate in intermediate routes. Someone to keep your eye on.
•••• Delans Griffin 5-10, 180, 4.48 Clinton
I made a special trip to Clinton, traveling between New Mexico and Oklahoma City this past March and I am sure glad I stopped.
On Film–#20 combines super speed with excellent strength. More than just a slasher, he can run through tackles, keeps his pads low, and can also juke defenders out their shoes. For proof just check out the Claremore game in which he ran for 315 yds and 5 TDs driving the defense crazy with his moves and speed. He shows a great burst, body control, and quickness. He is a smart backer who shows a good feel to pick and slide. Lans competes hard on every down and has the speed to take the ball the distance.
Stats–He carried the ball 176 times for 1,962 yds and 33 TDs averaging 11.1 yds per carry on his way to earning 1st Team All-State honors. He was also voted red zone's Oklahoma Player of the Year. To top things off he returned 4 punts and kickoffs back for scores. He is the Oklahoma version of Reggie Bush.
Other Sports–He finished 3rd in state in track in the 100 meters with the time of 10.6 and has also had a 22 flat 200 meters to his credit.
Grades–His GPA is around 2.6. Benches 255.

••• Dalton Irvin 6-0, 190, 4.5 Bixby
He is one of the most feared RB prospects in Class 5A.

He is the #1 WR prospect in the state of Oklahoma.
On Film–Chris displayed very strong hands, deceptive speed, and good body control down in San Antonio. He is very competitive and does not back down from anyone. He runs precise routes, knows how to get open, and shows some pretty nifty open field moves. When they played the #1 team in the state last year he caught the winning TD at the end of the game.

••• Jake Schooley 6-0, 175, 4.55 Tulsa Metro Christian
I must admit before this year I hadn't heard of this school, but two of the top players in the state played for them last year.
On Film–Jake is a possession-type receiver with strong hands, runs great routes, is a good downfield blocker, and just does everything asked of him. He is one of the more reliable players in the state and, of course, one of the more productive ones. He is also a free-ranging safety on defense who can hit.
Stats–He caught 79 passes for 1,226 yds and 14 TDs averaging 15.5 yds per catch. He also totaled 96 tackles and 3 picks on his way to earning All-Metro honors on both sides of the ball.

••••+ Bronson Irwin 6-5, 315, 5.3 Mustang
He is the state's #1 OL prospect.
On Film–I first met Bronson down in San Antonio. He proved to me and everyone else down there that he belonged and would rank as one of the nation's premiere OL prospects. He shows great balance, is an exceptional pass defender, and has very quick feet for a 315 pounder and strong hands. He is one of the more aggressive run blockers in the Midland region. He is a dominator who moves his feet well, can run, and redirect. He is very good at making adjustments and can hit moving targets. Last season he totally controlled the point of attack. He can play LT or OG in college. He was a mismatch against almost everyone he went up against last season. A hard worker who is rarely caught out of position, and the consummate OL.

When you talk about high ceilings, there is no ceiling higher than Mr. Spurgeons.
On Film–This guy just looks like an LT. When he is on there aren't many better. An exceptional pass blocker with good technique, he finishes off his blocks like no one's business, pancakes defenders on almost every other play, and can run through the opposition's defense wreaking havoc. He has that great frame and he should weight 320 pounds in college. If he can keep his quick feet look out. He dominated the Jenks game last season.
Stats–He recorded 40 pancake blocks on his way to earning All-Tulsa Area honors.
Other Sports–He has thrown the shot put 46' and finished 2nd in the regionals for the second year in a row and has throw the discus 152' in track. He averages 6 pts and 6 rebounds a game as center in basketball.

His height may not be ideal but his strength and desire certainly are.

Stats–He earned All-Tulsa Area honors in '08.
Favorite Schools–He committed early to TULSA. He is still hearing from OK STATE, OK, MO, KS STATE, TEXAS TECH.
••• Ryland Widener 6-2, 320, 5.29 Oklahoma Centennial
At this moment Ryland ranks as the state's top center prospect but he is also being recruited as an NG.
On Film–He is explosive off the ball and shows unusual quickness for a 320 pounder, which will allow him to remain on defense if he so chooses. However, I believe he has what it takes to dominate at center. He pulls and traps very well and plays big in big games. He is a very focused player who trains hard and appears to get stronger as the game progresses. He does a good job of staying with his blocks and is capable of blocking out on the second level. Just a powerhouse of a blocker. On defense he is exceptional against the run but has enough initial quickness to keep the QB honest.
Stats–He graded out at 90% in his blocking assignments on offense and totaled 61 tackles, 8 sacks, and 12 tackles for losses at NG.
Grades–His GPA is 3.2. Benches 350.

••• Mason Myers 6-2½, 268, 5.3 Oklahoma City Westmoore
Here is another ball player with a chance to play at DT in college.
On Film–Moose plays center, tackle, and DT and plays them all well. When he is on, he is one of the strongest and most dominating OL prospects in the state. He is a good athlete who can bend his knees and always seems to get good positioning. Once he locks on it's all over. He plays a physical brand of football and comes out of his stance with power and purpose showing fluid movement skills. The same could be said for his play at DT. Aggressive and tough, he plays the game on his feet and shows good lateral speed. He picks up things quickly and plays aggressively on both sides of the ball.
Stats–Earned some All-City honors for his play on offense.
Other Sports–He is a pitcher in baseball.

•••• Calvin Barnett 6-3, 320, 5.5 Tulsa Washington
He is the high school version of Glen Dorsey.
On Film–Calvin was injured all of the '07 season but came back with a vengeance in '08. What really stands out is his terrific ability to stop the run. This 320 pounder brings exceptional quickness off the ball, he dominates just about every play, collapses the pocket, is very strong at the point of attack, can run well laterally, and can redirect and hustles on every play. He shows the strength to stack the point and hold the double team with good backside speed. He does not have a great 40 time but is quick as a cat. He reads plays well and can think on his feet. He is difficult to block because he is built like a Coke machine with quick feet.
Stats–He recorded 77 tackles, 2 sacks, 23 tackles for losses, batted down 4 passes, and caused 3fumbles to go with 1 interception last season on his way to earning All-Tulsa Area honors.

He is just what the doctor ordered if you are looking for a standout DT. His quickness off the ball is big time as is his technique and strength. A playmaker, he must be double teamed at all times. Off to a good start, he finished as one of the most dominating DT prospects in the country. In the game against Edmond he was fantastic being credited with 17 tackles and 1 sack.

A transfer from Edison, Alec is another ball player with All-American potential.
On Film–When he's on there aren't many better. His quickness off the ball is excellent as is his technique. He certainly has a defensive mentality and can be a destructive force along the line. Better suited to play DT, however, he has shown potential at DE. He shows the power to stand up blockers and find the ball. He also has that quick, short-area burst to make plays outside the tackle box.
Stats–He earned some All-League mention for his play at DL.

He makes plays all over the field, can break down in the open field and make plays, diagnoses plays quickly, and does not bite on play action fakes. He shows a competitive nature that goes well with his good athleticism. He plays the ILB position with leverage and awareness and excels in backside pursuit. He could weigh 240-250 pounds in college. If he keeps his 4.58 speed, look out. His quickness to the ball is remarkable. He has a wide wingspan and plays the game on his feet.

•••+ Kale Sawatzky 6-1½, 195, 4.6 Weatherford
Sizing up Kale in two words – football player.
On Film–#22 is a leader both on and off the field for the Eagles. A smart, hard-working backer, he has the ability to be recruited at the TB, FB, or LB positions. He played OLB on junior film and he really stood out. He can run, moves well, keeps his balance, and he does a good job of slipping blocks and finding the ball. His range is from sideline to sideline. Smart and instinctive, he's an aggressive ball player who just makes plays. A quick reader, he effortlessly drops back into the passing lanes and tackles everything in sight. On offense, he is a pounder between the tackles who keeps his pads low, legs turning, and defenders on their toes.
Stats–He recorded 116 stops, 10 tackles for losses, and 1 sack on his way to earning All-State honors at LB. He carried the ball 175 times for close to 900 yds and 9 TDs at RB.

Favorite Schools–OK, AR, TULSA, OK STATE, TX TECH.
••• Ken Berry 6-1, 215, 4.6 Oklahoma City Marshall

••••• Demarco Cobbs 6-2, 198, 4.5 Tulsa Central
I saw enough of Boobie at the San Antonio combine to safely rank him as a five-star player.
On Film–He has proven to be an unbelievable athlete, as a rival coach calls him. His film shows him playing WR, QB, and FS. Big, fast, instinctive, and confident, he ranks as the #1 prospect in the state of Oklahoma. I don't want to pigeonhole him into the FS position but believe me, Boobie can play a number of positions at a high caliber. He is one of those rare physical defenders who can dominate against the run, fills quickly, and loves to hit. He is also an expert in pass defense showing a smooth backpedal, good change of direction, and terrific closing speed. Once he concentrates on one position and if he stays healthy, All-American honors should come his way. When I was watching Demarco down in San Antonio, he spent a lot of time at the WR position. He played very little of it in high school but he looked like a natural showing soft hands, catching the ball away from his body, and running precise routes. I believe he should be an instant impact player in college if the school is smart enough to put him at the right position.
Stats–He earned All-Tulsa Area honors for his play on offense and defense.
Other Sports–He has been timed in a 21.8 200 meters in track.

I really like this young man, I saw him for a few days down in San Antonio and then I went back to Tulsa to interview him one more time. I came away very impressed with his poise, maturity, and work ethic.
On Film–He plays mainly QB and proves to be an adept ball handler with exceptional quickness, vision, and balance. He is magic with the ball in his hands. Not a bad passer but he is an even better runner. On defense, which he played only half the time last year, he is great at the bump and run showing an exceptionally smooth backpedal. He has proven to be a good open-field tackler but his pass defense skills is what has always earned him rave reviews. I'm not saying he is going to play CB in college because on offense he looks like the high school version of Pat White. He is not real tall but believe me, he can get the job done. He throws the ball with authority and pinpoint accuracy. Exceptional while throwing on the run, he's an All-American in waiting.
Stats–He threw for 1,138 yds and 14 TDs. He was picked off 6 times and also ran for 1,068 yds and 13 TDs. On defense he recorded 11 solo tackles, 1 pick, and broke up 10 others at CB. He led his team to a 13 and 1 record. He did all this despite a broken right hand and missing six games.

Also considered to be one of the states top punt and kickoff returners and is explosive with great vision.

Favorite Schools–KS, KS STATE, MO, OK, and OK STATE.

Where Turner played CB Richardson played FS and QB. He has proven to be one of the better all-around athletes in the state.
On Film–I believe he has what it takes to become an All-American at the QB position. Tall with a live arm and outstanding running skills, this guy can throw the ball on the run as well as any QB in the country. On defense, he shows great range, speed to the ball, and a hard-hitting style of play. Take your pick, next year I'm sure he will be ranked as an All-American at either QB or FS. I watched #7 last season against Star Spencer and he looked like Pat White. He threw for 200 yds and 4 TDs and ran for 800 yds and 2 other scores.
Stats–He completed 130 of 208 passes for 2,300 yds 23 TDs and was picked off 10 times. He also carried the ball about 80 times for 700 yds and 5 scores.
Other Sports–He has been timed in 10.9 100 and a 22.4 200 meters in track. Averages 10 pts and 10 rebounds a game as a PG in basketball.
Grades–His GPA is 3.0. Benches 200 and has a 38" VJ.
Favorite Schools–TX TECH, TULSA, KS STATE, LSU, FL, and UCLA.
Emilio Gatewood 5-8, 170, 4.5 Oklahoma City Millwood
The third member of an outstanding junior secondary.
On Film–#2 is quick, smart, and unbelievably aggressive for a 170 pounder. In fact, he plays SS and plays it like an LB. The Millwood/Perry game was known for its violent hits and most of them came from Mr. Gatewood. There are not many 170 pounders that can deliver a blow like he can. He also shows the speed, change of direction, and burst to make an impact at SS, FS, or CB.
Stats–Recorded 106 tackles, 3 sacks, 4 picks, and 16 tackles for losses from his SS position. He also carried the ball 58 times for 736 yds and 10 scores.
Other Sports–He has been timed in a 10.6 100 and a 21.8 200 meters in track.
Grades–His GPA is 3.3. Benches 235 and has a 33" VJ.
Favorite Schools–TX A&M, K STATE, TULSA, NOTRE DAME, UCF, OR, and OK.
