NORMAN, Okla. - While the first day of Oklahoma's summer camp may have been something of a lackluster affair, the second day more than made up with it with any type of storyline one could hope for.

Great battles between talented linemen? Check.

Great receivers making miraculous catches against tight coverage? Check.

Known stars stepping up their recruiting status? You better believe it.

A trio of juniors really stole the show and perhaps most notably Lee's Summit, Mo. guard Evan Broehm who picked up a Sooner offer following the camp.

The skilled guard from the Kansas City suburb is the defending Missouri state champion in wrestling and his skills with balance and overall hand strength were quickly evident against even some of the camp's more skilled defensive tackles. The Sooner offer may not have been a big surprise as the player who just finished his sophomore year already has verbal offers from the likes of Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

In the class of 2012 he was joined by Apopka, Fla. offensive guard Ty Darlington who, along with his Missouri counterpart, showed off great feet and a willingness to be physical even in a camp scenario.
