Demarco Cobbs was Scout.com's initial pick as the top player in the state and after a monstrous senior season he proved that he belongs on top of the list. Check out the rest of the 'Sooner State' rankings to see how everyone else stacks up.

Demarco Cobbs ends up going wire-to-wire as the top ranked player in the Sooner State. He had a huge senior season and his versatility gives him the chance to play multiple positions at Texas, but it looks like he will be getting his first shot at running back. But with his size and length he could also be tremendous safety and UT defensive coordinator Will Muschamp may make a play for him to come over to his side of the field once he arrives in Austin.

"To begin number one and finish number one; it couldn't be greater," Cobbs informed when told of his final ranking. "I really enjoyed the ride.

"I felt no pressure this year. I just went out and played to the best of my ability, and I am looking to do the same in the near future."

Bronson Irwin has been a solid number two choice behind Cobbs all year, so the top two guys have held steady all year. Irwin had a strong senior season and then impressed all of the scouts on hand at the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.

The biggest riser on the list is Southmoore tight end Austin Haywood, who makes a strong case to challenge Cobbs as the prep player of the year in Oklahoma after dominating on both sides of the ball and leading the upstart Sabercats deep in to the playoffs.
