High school football: State's 2014 crop looking even stronger

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State both landed top in-state commits, and other major prospects added offers from elite programs. And the cycle isn't slowing down anytime soon.

But the strength of the class extends beyond the few prime choices at the top.

There are players like Edmond North workhorse Michael Farmer, who is committed to Arizona State, and Broken Arrow quarterback Coleman Key with his long frame and live arm.

Another, Jenks defensive back Dylan Harding, keeps gaining interest, as does Yukon offensive lineman Tyler Bowling.

Bishop McGuinness quarterback Jacob Lewis was the buzz of the Nike SPARQ combine in Dallas a couple weeks back, posting some of the best all-around numbers of anyone in attendance.

Here's what adds to the intrigue of this class: Every year at this time, there are a half-dozen or more Division I prospects that haven't yet emerged as such.

They begin to show themselves in team camps and summer combines, before they're suddenly rising up the ranks and pulling in scholarship offers.

For those of us who follow recruiting, it's going to be quite a show.

For those who don't get too juiced up by the recruiting game, at least know you'll have some talented players to watch on Friday nights in the fall.
