The 2014 football recruiting class in Oklahoma is one of the deepest in several years. Through the month of June, 38 prospects from state high schools have NCAA Division I scholarship offers. Of those 38 players, 18 are verbally committed to FBS programs — including 12 to teams from BCS conferences.
And several other prospects are getting significant recruiting attention, with offers likely on the horizon, meaning as many as 50 state players could have D-I football opportunities. In fact, the depth of the class led to multiple quality prospects missing the cut on this edition of the Super 30. Here are the last five players cut from the list, in alphabetical order:
Keaton Baggs, OL, Broken Arrow: The 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect verbally committed to Louisiana-Monroe earlier this month.
D'Angelo Brewer, RB, Tulsa Central: The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder is a versatile, speedy back who committed to Tulsa.
Tristan Butcher, LB, Coweta: At 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, Butcher has FBS offers from UTEP and the Louisiana programs in Monroe and Lafayette, along with a couple FCS opportunities.
Alfonzo McMillian, ATH, Millwood: The 6-foot, 185-pound athlete is one of the fastest risers on the recruiting scene with an offer from North Texas as a receiver and Washington State as a cornerback.
Jordan Mitchell, DB, Owasso: Mitchell is part of a group of big defensive backs in the state at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds. Recently picked up a Tulsa offer.
