This spring, Owasso High School head coach Bill Blankenship said Ryker Haff and Blake Cherry could be the best tandem of offensive tackles he’s ever had. And they were just sophomores at the time.
Being that they are 2025 prospects, it’s no shock that national recruiting services have yet to place a star ranking on either. For what it’s worth, 247 Sports has only ranked 46 offensive tackles for 2025 and none yet from the state of Oklahoma. But PrepRedzone OK ranked Haff and Cherry the Nos. 1 and 2 prospects in the state, respectively. Expect the national recruiting services to follow suit soon.
“I’d never had two (tackles) who were this big and this physical while still being so young,” Blankenship told the Tulsa World back in May. “They certainly have a chance to be the best (tandem at the tackle positions) that I’ve ever had.”
Haff cracks the scale at 6 foot 6 and 305 pounds with Cherry trailing just behind at 6 foot 6 and 295, with two years of high school left to grow and develop. The fact that they’re set to spend those two years as pillars of the same O-line makes the prospect of a package deal all the more enticing, and OSU wasn’t the first school to get the idea.
Haff also holds offers from Tulsa and Texas Tech, while Cherry’s list also includes Tulsa, Texas Tech and Kansas. Expect those lists to grow too.
OSU currently has no commitments for the 2025 class but has extended offers to three other offensive tackles: four-star Michael Fasusi from Lewisville, Texas, four-star Ty Haywood from Denton-Ryan, and Trinity Christians’ Jaylan Beckley.
