SCOOPHD: Nasty on the Edge

Oklahoma has never been known as a state to produce a lot of elite defenders up front but not only does the Sooner State have some difference makers at linebacker but perhaps even more so along the defensive line. Whether you're looking for athletic interior defenders or explosive edge rushers they are there to be found inside the state of Oklahoma.

In the vein of finding help getting after the quarterback is Midwest City's 2018 outside linebacker/defensive end Jalen Redmond as well as Oklahoma's most recent commitment, Isaiah Thomas of Tulsa Memorial.

Needing help inside from some highly active defensive tackles? Take a look at a pair of 2017 prospects in Bixby's Brendon Evers or Mustang's Deontre Thomas.

Finally what about a potential nose tackle to clog the run up the middle? You might just find your guy in Tulsa Union's Jordan Kelley.
