Friday Night Highlights: How Oklahoma State commits fared in Week 2

Once again, welcome to the Brennan Presley show.

For the second week in a row, Brennan Presley showed Oklahoma why Bixby is the favorite to repeat as Class 6A Division II State Champions, and Shane Illingworth had quite the quarterback duel. With the exception of a few players on their bye week, check out how all of Oklahoma State’s 2020 commits fared in week two action.

Shane Illingworth, Quarterback:

Norco moved to 2-0 on the season with a 59-44 win over Rancho Cucamonga. The game featured quite the showdown at quarterback: Illingworth vs. CJ Stroud, who has offers from Baylor, Oregon and more.

Despite the elite quarterback showdown, Norco running back Fernando Chairez stole the show with 138 yards rushing and six total touchdowns. Illingworth had a good night as well with 326 yards through the air to go with three scores.

Check out two of Illingworth’s three touchdown passes below.

Brennan Presley, Athlete:

I’ve got a feeling that Presley might be rated much higher in the next edition of 247sports’ rankings. The future Cowboy finished with two receiving touchdowns and three (!!!) interceptions, as Bixby waxed Jenks 57-7 for the Spartans first win at Jenks since 1968.

Both of Presley’s touchdowns came from deep — one was a 79-yard pass and the other came from 59 yards out. As typical with our Oklahoma recruits, it’s hard to find exact game stats so I’m not quite sure how many total yards Presley finished with.

Regardless of how many yards Presley had, it’s beginning to look like he will be the steal of the class. His weekly performances remind me of Thomas Harper from last years’ class: Big numbers every week but no national ranking to show for it. That’s OK though, Mike Gundy has made a living by finding recruits just like Presley (Justice Hill’s 900+ ranking comes to mind.)

This recap offers up a few of Presley’s highlights. You’ll notice his brother, Braylin, finds the end zone four times as well. Braylin is the younger of the two and could wind up with an OSU offer down the road.
