Football recruiting is gaining steam quickly for the state's 2015 class.

Four juniors received their first Division I scholarship offers last week, including Oklahoma State's offer to Norman North quarterback John Kolar.

The athletic, strong-armed Kolar, 6-foot-4, 185 pounds, was the Timberwolves' starter for the second half of the season after now-Alabama freshman David Cornwell was injured. Kolar threw for 1,675 yards and 15 TDs with just two interceptions, completing 64.9 percent of his passes.

Westmoore receiver Dahu Green, 6-3, 190, picked up two offers, from Louisville and Tulsa, following his junior season in which he had 700 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Louisville could begin to show more involvement on the Oklahoma recruiting scene than in years past, with former OU quarterback Garrick McGee now working as the school's offensive coordinator. McGee has recruited the state hard at all of his college stops, including Arkansas and Alabama-Birmingham.

Anadarko's Tramayne Wauahdooah, a 6-3, 200-pound linebacker, received an offer from Tulsa, according to the Oklahoma High School Sports Express.

And Rivals.com reported that Del City's versatile athlete Davion Freeman, 5-10, 160, has been offered by North Texas.

In all, 10 players in the 2015 class have reported Division I offers so far.
