QB Clayton Creasey 6-1, 180, Sr. Jones Longhorns
Production is no issue for Clayton Creasey of Jones. Last season as a junior he threw for 2,941 yards with 42 touchdowns and added 633 yards rushing. Creasey helped Jones to the Class 2A semifinals, which has only fueled the signal caller for his senior season.
RB Xavier Robinson 6-2, 225, Sr. Carl Albert Titans
The return of Mr. Football Oklahoma means one thing; the rest of the class better get ready for a steady dose of Xavier Robinson. Last season he rushed for 2,600 yards and scored 39 touchdowns and has committed to the University of Oklahoma.
WR Juju Smith 5-9, 160, Jr. Choctaw Yellowjackets
A very productive and dependable receiver, Juju Smith recorded 753 yards receiving with nearly 300 yards on the ground. What makes Smith dangerous is his willingness to make run inside routes and make the tough receptions.
OL Darreyl Thomas 6-4, 285, Sr. Del City Eagles
It’s easy to see why DI coaches love Darreyl Thomas. At 6-foot-4 and 285-pounds, Thomas has the size to play at the next level, but it’s his ability to move people off the ball that the coaches truly love.
DE Will Smith 6-4, 245, Sr. Choctaw Yellowjackets
A true edge rusher with speed most players his size dream of, Will Smith could be the toughest player for opposing offenses to scheme for this season. Smith had 13 sacks last season and is hungry for more.
LB Bryce Graham 6-0, 220, Sr. Christian Heritage Crusaders
One of the top linebackers in the state, Bryce Graham recorded 150 tackles with 34 of those tackles for a loss. Just as impressive, Graham nabbed 14.5 sacks last season and snagged six interceptions. Look for the senior to have a big season for the Crusaders.
DB Trystan Haynes 6-2, 165, Jr. Carl Albert Titans
A two-way starter for the Titans, Trystan Haynes has several DI offers on the table including Alabama, Texas A&M, Baylor and Tulsa to name a few. Haynes combines speed, size, aggressiveness and a high football IQ making him a complete player and a shutdown corner.
