College Sports: Oklahoma’s recruiting high school all-star game roundup: QB Spencer Rattler, trio of 5-star WRs impress; see how other 2019 recruits fared

Oklahoma had 11 signees participate in the nation’s premier high school all star games over the weekend. Here’s how they fared:

Under Armour Game

Theo Wease; 5-star WR; 6-3; 202 (Allen High School)

Wease acquitted himself well, catching one touchdown in the back of the end zone. He made another highlight-reel grab that should have counted for six points, but the official blew the call (there was no replay available).

DL Joseph Weté; 4-star DE; 6-4; 220 (Gonzaga High School/Washington D.C.)

Weté didn’t have any highlight plays during the game, but this tweet should give Oklahoma fans something to look forward to.

Jeremiah Criddell; 4-star S; 5-11; 188 (Mater Dei/Santa Ana, Calif.)
Jamal Morris; 4-star S; 6-2; 185 (Fort Bend Bush/Richmond, TX.)

Neither Criddell nor Morris made any notable plays during the game, but that’s not expected in an all-star game environment. Both freshmen could see early playing time at Oklahoma given the Sooners’ struggles in the secondary this season.

Jaden Davis; 4-star DB; 5-9; 166 (St. Thomas Aquinas/Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)

Davis was able to make his presence felt, particularly against Wease. He knocked away a potential touchdown pass to the Allen High School product, and showed the kind of ball skills Oklahoma cornerbacks have lacked for the last few years.

All American Bowl

Spencer Rattler; 5-star QB; 6-1; 192 (Pinnacle High School/Phoenix, Ariz.)

The west team struggled mightily, but Oklahoma signee Spencer Rattler did all he could. Rattler threw two touchdown passes and broke the All-American Bowl record for passing yards in the game.

Jadon Haselwood; 5-star WR; 6-2′ 196 (Cedar Grove High School/Ellenwood, Ga.)

Haselwood committed to Oklahoma during the game, giving the Sooners three 5-star receivers in the 2019 class. His standout play came on a jump ball that he took 75 yards to the house:

Trejan Bridges; 4-star WR; 6-1; 184 (Hebron)

Bridges didn’t make the big plays like Wease and Haselwood did this weekend, but he still played well. He also made an impact on special teams and will be a candidate to return kicks for the Sooners in 2019.

Austin Stogner; 4-star TE; 6-6; 235 (Prestonwood Christian)

Stogner didn’t have a huge impact on the game, but he did convert this first-and-20 pass from Rattler.

Stogner could be a redshirt candidate in 2019 with Grant Calcaterra and Lee Morris both slated to return at tight end.

Stacey Wilkins; 4-star OL; 6-6; 271 (Camden Fairview/Camden, Ark.)
EJ Ndoma-Ogar; 4-star OL; 6-3; 328 (Allen High School)

It’s difficult for offensive linemen to make an impact in a high school all-star game, and that proved to be the case for Wilkins and Ndoma-Ogar. Neither is expected to play meaningful snaps for the Sooners in 2019, but both could be important cogs in co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh’s machine later down the line.
