High school football: Owasso receiver John Cole Neph starting to be noticed

SUPER 30 — Tall receiver recently received his first BCS offer from Kansas State, but remains focused on the approaching season.

Before Kansas State extended an offer, Neph had received offers from Holy Cross, Illinois State, Louisiana-Monroe, Texas-San Antonio, and other non-Division I programs.

Now that summer camps are over and his highlight film has made the rounds, Neph is shifting his focus away from the recruiting process and onto his upcoming senior season at Owasso — specifically the goal of winning the Class 6A state championship.

“I'm more focused on my team and our workouts right now,” said Neph, who had 855 yards and eight touchdowns on 51 catches as a junior. “I'll get up to K-State for a game in the fall and go to some other places, but I realize that I need to stay focused on my team first.

“When I'm comfortable with where I want to go I'll make a decision, but I'm not going to let that take away from what we're doing on Friday night. That's where my focus will be because we're going to bring home a gold ball.”
