    The wild card in Oklahoma is Holliday, son of Oklahoma State coach Tom Holliday and one of the nation's top quarterback recruits. Holliday might be an impossible sign unless he gets first-round money, but the loss of Oklahoma State's offensive coordinator to the Dallas cowboys has made Holliday look more closely to baseball. He has shown little inclination to play college football and professional baseball. Holliday is a five-tool player with excellent power and arm strength.
