No. 15 Midwest City linebacker Aaron McKinney (6-3, 185)
His position is going to be the toughest thing to determine. Is he an outside linebacker? Is he a safety? Remains to be seen. McKinney had a solid junior season with 38 tackles on defense, while also scoring three touchdowns. Has been very active in terms of taking visits to schools.
No. 14 Edmond Memorial defensive end LaManuel Singleton (6-4, 225)
One word to use for Singleton is raw. There’s no doubt about that. But there’s also no doubt about his talent. He battled some early-season injuries but finished with 25 tackles and five sacks. When healthy, has shown one of the quickest first steps around coming off the snap.
No. 13 Oklahoma City Heritage Hall quarterback Connor McGinnis (6-4, 185)
If you want the state’s best quarterback, look no further. McGinnis has great size for the position, but he knows has a ways to go before he’s where he wants to be. He rushed for 761 yards and 10 touchdowns, while throwing for 1,990 yards with 18 more scores and eight interceptions. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have shown early interest.
No. 12 Broken Arrow cornerback Markale Moses (5-9, 154)
Moses has been on the radar for a while. If he was two inches taller, he would be making a run at the top five. As is, he still might be the best pure cornerback in the state. Transferring to Broken Arrow has done wonders for his development. He had 63 tackles and an interception returned for touchdown in 2013.
No. 11 Edmond North linebacker Caileb Booze (6-3, 210)
Last year was supposed to be the breakout season for Booze, and he didn’t disappoint. A solid junior season saw Booze record 82 tackles and six sacks. He has made multiple unofficial visits to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and is making his way up the charts with each performance.
