The Oklahoman's final Super 30 ranking of the top 30 prospects in the state before signing day, Feb. 1

1. Alex Ross, committed to Oklahoma

RB, Jenks, 6-1, 205 (2)

Ross insists he'll compete for playing time after suffering collarbone injuries during his senior season.

2. Sterling Shepard, Oklahoma

WR, Heritage Hall, 5-10, 175 (3)

Shepard's height might've kept him from making a jump nationally but he showed this season and in the Under Armour All-America Game that he belongs among the best.

3. Barry Sanders, Stanford

RB, Heritage Hall, 5-11, 195 (1)

Chose Stanford over OSU, Alabama and Florida State, making his official announcement at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl earlier this month.

4. Kevin Peterson, Oklahoma

DB, Wagoner, 5-11, 170 (8)

Patience paid off as the Sooners came calling once his senior season ended.

5. Donovan Roberts, Arkansas

RB, Norman, 6-0, 200 (4)

Stood firm on Razorbacks commitment after receiving OU offer.

6. Cayman Bundage, Arizona

OL, Douglass, 6-2, 293 (5)

Opening-game performance against DeSoto (Texas) showed Bundage was among elite.

7. Keon Hatcher, Arkansas

WR, Owasso, 6-2, 205 (22)

8. Michael Onuoha

DE, Edmond Santa Fe, 6-5, 225 (29)

Biggest riser, an top uncommitted prospect, on the list will choose between Missouri and OU in the days before signing day.

9. Blake Belcher, Tulsa

OL, Guthrie, 6-6, 271 (6)

Only official visit was to Tulsa despite offers from Arizona, Iowa State, Oregon State and Stanford among others.

10. Daniel Burton, Iowa State

OL, Putnam North, 6-4, 270 (13)

Grew up a fan of OSU and admits to being torn when Cyclones upset Cowboys late in the season.

11. Zac Veatch, Oklahoma State

TE, Broken Arrow, 6-4, 245 (19)

Veatch is a physical, bruising tight end who also made a significant impact at defensive end for the Tigers.

12. Ashton Henderson

DT, Jenks, 6-1, 315 (7)

New Mexico and Arkansas State have jumped on Henderson late after early Louisville offer.

13. Michael Thomas, Tulsa

DB, Lawton MacArthur, 6-1, 195 (9)
