His uncle, Rodney Harding, played for Oklahoma State before playing 12 years in the Canadian Football League.

14. Kendall Holmes

Running back, Tulsa Union, 5-11, 185

Appears to be back on track after off-the-field issues ended his junior season early.

15. Kerwin Thomas

Defensive back, Wagoner, 5-10, 160

While many teams avoided Kevin Peterson this year, Thomas made them pay when they tested him.

16. Cameron Wrenn

Running back, Broken Arrow, 5-11, 175

Split time in the Tigers' backfield but constantly found ways to make his presence felt, especially in the passing game.

17. Novis Cullom

Defensive tackle, Tulsa Memorial, 6-3, 290

Sort of like Michael Onuoha from this year's class, Cullom is a project player, but his frame and recent improvement suggest he could continue to skyrocket.

18. Devanta Johnson

Defensive back, Tulsa East Central, 6-0, 175

Recent transfer from Tulsa Central showed solid signs of progress throughout his junior season.

19. Kooper Ruminer

Linebacker, Deer Creek, 6-3, 215

Ruminer led the Antlers with 125 tackles and 10 sacks as a junior.

20. Jordan Smallwood

Wide receiver, Jenks, 6-2, 190

Doesn't have blazing speed, but his size makes his an attractive target.

21. Blake Mejia

Offensive lineman, Tulsa Union, 6-3, 280

Another prime example of Union's strong junior class, Mejia's stock could rise significantly.

22. Jaelen Bledsoe

Defensive end, Tulsa McLain, 6-3, 205

Bledsoe is another project type of player, but his potential is as high as anyone in the state.

23. Cre Moore

Defensive back, Broken Arrow, 6-0, 175

Might have been somewhat overshadowed sharing a backfield with Levi Copelin last season, but still made plenty of plays in his own right for 6A runners-up.

24. Trevan Smith

Defensive back, Edmond Santa Fe, 5-8, 170

Size is an issue for Smith but his bloodlines — he's the brother of former Santa Fe and OU standout Reggie Smith — and his versatility might lead programs to overlook his shortfalls.

25. James Caligone

Defensive back, Tulsa Washington, 5-10, 156

Saw time at quarterback for the Hornets last year, but figures to be a corner in college.

26. Wilson Chandler

Defensive back, Lawton, 6-0, 180

Could wind up at either corner or safety at the next level.

27. Corey Lawrence

Athlete, Del City, 6-1, 175

Another player with potential to skyrocket up the chart shortly, but he missed a big part of the season with injury.

28. Cornell Neal

Defensive back, Midwest City, 5-11, 190

Neal, who had 58 tackles and a pair of interceptions on defense and 349 yards and four touchdowns receiving for the Bombers, is physical enough to play a variety of positions.

29. Easton Pingleton

Athlete, Ada, 6-1, 180

Could wind up at either wide receiver or in the secondary in college but was primarily an offensive player last year, when he had 951 yards and eight touchdowns receiving.

30. Brock Byford

Linebacker, Edmond North, 6-1, 203

Byford had 83 tackles and a sack as a junior for the Huskies.
