Prep Redzone Oklahoma was once again on hand in Dallas for the True Buzz Invitational 7v7 tournament. We were there from start to finish and saw some fantastic playmakers throughout the two days in DeSoto. We also pulled double duty in the DFW area and were also at the USNFT Combine. Stay tuned for breakdowns on that as well. In this piece, I’ll hit on the top performers we saw in the 15U division. If you haven’t seen them yet, make sure you check out Michael’s Top Performers and Jake’s Top Performers from the 18U division. Stay tuned to PRZ Oklahoma for more True Buzz content coming in the next couple of days and as always, follow our Twitter account @PrepRedzoneOK for all your Oklahoma high school football news and updates. Let’s jump into it!
Jino Boyd Jino Boyd 6'0" | WR Union | 2024 State OK – 2024 WR – Union – Played with 918 Elite
Boyd impressed us early on when we saw him at the Sooner7 classic in Broken Arrow a few weeks ago but he was another level on Saturday in Dallas. Boyd already has good size for a WR at 6’0″ (enter weight) and has the deep speed to take the top off defenses with ease, which he did on multiple occasions. He was the top target for 918 Elite this weekend and will be a vital piece to their success on offense this offseason. I expect him to get some significant playing time for Union as well this fall.
Michael Barnett – 2023 RB/DB – Catoosa – Played with Sooner7 Gray 18U and Sooner7 15U
It is not entirely common for an RB to make a huge impact in 7on7 tourneys for obvious reasons, but Barnett impressed us on both days. During the tournament, Barnett played with the 18U Sooner7 Gray squad in the mornings/afternoons before switching jerseys and divisions to play with the Sooner7 15U guys towards the end of the day. Barnett lined up mostly in the backfield where he displayed some soft hands and a nice ability to navigate through traffic and find open windows in coverage. I have not seen a ton of tape on Barnett as a runner in pads, but his stock will only go up if he continues to improve as a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
Knox Dyson Knox Dyson 6'3" | QB Owasso | 2024 State OK – 2024 QB – Owasso – Played with 918 Elite
Knox is currently our top QB for the class of 2024, so we were naturally excited to see him in action for the first time this offseason. Due to overlapping schedules for some of the Oklahoma teams, we were not able to catch much of 918 Elite’s games on Sunday, but we were very impressed with what we saw from Dyson on Saturday. He was pretty spot on accurate all day and had some awesome deep throws to both the sidelines and over the middle of the field. 918 Elite went into bracket play as one of the top seeds but ended up losing in the (find round). However, we have most likely only seen a sample of what Knox and this 918 Elite team can do as they were without some of their best players this weekend, Union TE Lane Wood Lane Wood 6'3" | TE Union | 2024 State OK , and Beggs RB RED Martel RED Martel 5'11" | RB Beggs | 2024 State OK .
Tykie Andrews – 2023 WR – Enid – Played with Sooner7 15U
Sooner7’s 15U squad is loaded with talent at WR and Tykie was the most impressive of that bunch when we saw them on Saturday night. Andrews stands at 6’0″ 165 Lbs with a nice frame to add on some strength and muscle, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t already strong off the line and at the catch point. Tykie displayed some clean and strong releases off the line and was a nightmare for opposing DBs because even when they kept in stride with him he would simply outjump them and make a big play. Sooner7 15U exited from bracket play fairly early on Sunday but they are a team that is starting to put it all together and Andrews specifically is a player I will be eyeing closely this off-season.
Shaker Reisig – 2025 QB – Jenks – Played with Sooner7 15U
Yes, you read that right. No, that is not a typo next to his name. Shaker Reisig, an 8th grader, is currently playing in the 15U division that mainly consists of freshmen and sophomores, yet you wouldn’t think he is still in middle school when you watch him play. He is way beyond his age in terms of arm strength, mechanics, and footwork, and he showed that on most of his throws during pool play. While he still has a lot of room to grow physically and as a passer, he is a guy everyone should be on the lookout for as he has a chance to light it up and open some eyes this off-season.
