NORMAN — The final session of the Brent Venables Elite Camp proved to be very fruitful for Oklahoma, who offered 10 players on Thursday.

Bill Bedenbaugh and the Sooners’ offensive line staff was busy with a very talented group of campers, extending offers to a handful of linemen in the 2025 class: Lone Peak (UT) tackle Austin Pay, Trinity Christian Academy (TX) lineman Jaylan Beckley and Cedar Hill (TX) trench players Devin and Jordan Coleman.

At 6-foot-7, Pay is the tallest of the bunch. The 3-star recruit had a solid performance against a good group of edge rushers on Thursday, earning his seventh offer.

Currently, the Utah native holds offers from Oregon, Stanford, BYU and UCLA.

Beckley, who hails from the Dallas area, has racked up an impressive offer list heading into his junior year. The 6-5, 299-pound tackle already held offers from Clemson, LSU and Georgia prior to receiving one from OU at camp Thursday.

Devin and Jordan Coleman are twin brothers from Cedar Hill who both picked up an offer from the Sooners after showcasing their overwhelming strength and surprising mobility at camp. Jordan, listed at 6-5 and 325 pounds, plays interior offensive line while Devin, who is virtually the same size, plays interior defensive line.

Before receiving an offer from Oklahoma, the twins both held an offer from Texas Tech.

In the 2026 class, Bedenbaugh offered Drew Evers from Flower Mound (TX) High School and IMG Academy (FL) standout Breck Kolojay.

Evers is the younger brother of former OU quarterback Nick Evers, who transferred to Wisconsin after one year in Norman.

Despite only playing one year of high school football, Drew Evers is already stronger than many of the players he is competing against. The 6-3, 285-pound tackle holds offers from Texas Tech, Baylor, Colorado and Florida State, among others.

Kolojay, who originally played for Valor Christian High School in Colorado, is a fast-rising o-lineman who also picked up an offer from Bedenbaugh and company on Thursday. Now at IMG Academy, the 6-5 rising sophomore already boasts offers from Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Penn State and others.

Also in the 2026 class, Pine View (UT) tight end Brock Harris, Jenks (OK) athlete Kaydin Jones and Forney (TX) running back Javian Osborne were extended offers after spectacular performances in the morning session.

Harris, who now has 15 offers heading into his sophomore year, displayed incredible mobility for such a young player with his size and stature. Listed at 6-6 and 220 pounds, the sure handed pass catcher has already been offered by Georgia, Miami, Oregon and Utah.

Jones is the son of former OU running back Kejuan Jones, who played for the Sooners from 2002-2005, racking up 28 touchdowns in his first two years with the team. Kaydin Jones put his speed on display at the final session of the Venables camp, easily sprinting by defensive backs and getting open downfield in one-on-one reps.

While he was working out with the running backs this morning, many believe that the 5-11 athlete will be a defensive back in college. Oklahoma marks Jones’ fifth offer, following Tulsa, Colorado, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

Osborne, a speedy tailback, received an offer from DeMarco Murray and company after an impressive morning period of workouts. The talented track athlete from Forney holds offers from Texas, USC, Washington and TCU, among others.

Murray also offered McNeil (TX) running back Joshua Williams after the skilled ball carrier performed well in position drills and one-on-ones. Oklahoma is Williams' first offer after recording over 700 yards from scrimmage as a sophomore at McNeil High School.

In addition to the 10 scholarships offers OU handed out, the Sooners’ extended preferred walk-on offers to a pair of 2024 wide receivers on Thursday. Jacob Jordan of Southlake Carroll (TX) and Steel Tobin of Highland Park (TX) both were given the good news after dominating one-on-one drills.

The talented Dallas-area wideouts got open in a variety of ways on Thursday, showing off a good route tree and a great ability to sink their hips and change directions. Additionally, both receivers had the speed to run by their defender and made a catch on what seemed like every rep.

Jordan, who is teammates with Sooners’ offers Brock Boyd, Riley Wormley and Jack VanDorselaer, has six offers of his own. The rising senior has heard from Texas Tech, North Texas and Western Kentucky, amongst others.

A trio of 2025 receivers, Jaquise Martin of Rudder (TX) High School, Terrence Lewis of Bryan (TX) High School and Carterrious Brown of Seguin (TX) High School all had tremendous performances at the final session of the Venables Elite Camp. Each currently holds at least one Power 5 offer and four offers total.

OU also brought in a talented group of 2027 prospects on Thursday. Zane Rowe and Erick Reese of Denton Guyer (TX) had strong showings while Bryson Brown of Owasso (OK) put his name firmly in the mix of players that Jay Valai and company will need to continue checking up on in the coming years.

Rowe, who is already a whopping 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds at only 14-years-old, showed why he has more than 10 offers before starting high school. Like Harris, Rowe has great speed and mobility for someone his age and size.

The rising freshman plays on both sides of the ball and has already received offers from Georgia, Texas and Texas A&M.

Reese, who will also begin his freshman year at Denton Guyer this fall, was able to consistently get open downfield against much older DBs on Thursday despite his youth. Even when competing with a handful of 2024 and 2025 recruits, Reese stood out amongst his peers.

Brown, who will begin taking varsity snaps as a freshman at Owasso this fall, is one of only two players in the 2027 class to take a visit to Norman. At 5-foot-10, the standout defensive back already possesses a wealth of athleticism and will be intriguing to watch over the next four years.
