FOLLOWING THE FUTURE
MARQUIS ANDERSON - DT 6'3 - 260, Cibolo (Texas) Steele
|Anderson had three tackles (one solo) in Steele's 47-6 win over Seguin. |
Anderson is one of several Sooner commits who flies under the radar by and large but is playing for one of Texas' most talented teams and is a focal point of Oklahoma's class.
|Next: Steele (4-2) travels to New Braunfels.|
BRANDON CARTER - ATH 5'11 - 161, Euless (Texas) Trinity
|Carter did a bit of everything in a 48-6 win over Haltom going 2-for-4 for 50-yards passing, rushing for 52-yards on five carries and grabbing one 22-yard catch. |
Carter has made his name at Trinity as a receiver but the Sooners have eyed him as a future cornerback and he showed a capacity to learn at Oklahoma's summer camp.
|Next: Trinity (7-0) travels to Irving Nimitz.|
DYLAN DISMUKE - OL 6'6 - 292, Duncan, Okla.
|Dismuke and the Demons seem to be hitting stride taking out Northwest Classen 43-22. |
Dismuke, a lifelong Sooner fan, was concerned he might not get the offer he wanted from the Sooners and after receiving it didn't wait long to accept.
|Next: Duncan (4-2) hosts Lawton MacArthur.|
DEREK FARNIOK - OL 6'9 - 319, Sioux Falls (S.D.) Washington
|Farniok helped the Warriors crush Spearfish 60-0. |
Perhaps more than any member of Oklahoma's 2011 signing class Farniok made a huge stride during his junior season to place himself firmly on Oklahoma's radar.
|Next: Washington (7-0) hosts Stevens.|
NATHAN HUGHES - DE 6'6 - 263, Klein (Texas) Oak
|Hughes had 10 tackles, two tackles for loss in a narrow district loss 27-22 to Spring Dekaney. |
Hughes was one of Oklahoma's most highly rated commitments from the Houston area in quite some time, the Sooners certainly hope he is the start of something good on the city's talent-rich North side.
|Next: Klein Oak (3-3) hosts Spring Westfield.|
KAMEEL JACKSON - WR 6' - 198, Arlington (Texas) Sam Houston
|Jackson had two catches for 39-yards before going off with an injury and the Texans fell 43-6 to rival Arlington Martin. |
Jackson was offered incredibly early and spent about three minutes debating the choice before deciding to bring his precise route-running and technique to Norman.
|Next: Sam Houston (2-4) travels to Arlington.|
P.L. LINDLEY - LB 6'2 - 225, Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point
|Lindley had 11 tackles (six solo) in his team's 49-35 win over Georgetown. |
Lindley was little-talked about prior to his commitment to Oklahoma but upon choosing the Sooners he was quickly joined by his teammate Jordan Wade.
|Next: Stony Point (7-0) travels to Georgetown.|
TREY METOYER - WR 6'2 - 198, Whitehouse, Texas - Week 7 MVP
|Metoyer had seven catches for 184-yards and five touchdowns (18, 37, 32, 57 and 13) in a 48-19 win over Nacogdoches. |
Metoyer is the most highly ranked member of Oklahoma's 2011 class and shows explosive ability that has been compared to current Dallas Cowboy, and fellow East Texan, Dez Bryant.
|Next: Whitehouse (5-1) travels to Tyler John Tyler.|
JORDAN PHILLIPS - DT 6'6 - 290, Towanda (Kansas) Circle
|Phillips and the Thunderbirds fell to Andale 35-0. |
Phillips could be the nation's most under appreciated prospect with elite talent not only at defensive tackle, but real potential as a perimeter offensive lineman.
|Next: Circle (3-3) hosts El Dorado.|
FRANKLIN SHANNON - S 6'2- 210, Dallas Skyline
|Shannon helped the Raiders to another district win, this time taking out Jesuit 43-24. |
Shannon was the third Skyline player to pledge to the Sooners in the last year joining former Raider stars Corey Nelson and Joe Powell.
|Next: Skyline (4-2) travels to Dallas Samuel.|
MAX STEVENSON - TE 6'6 - 240, Klein (Texas) Oak
|Stevenson had his biggest night of the season with eight catches for 102-yards and three scores (3, 29, 18). |
Stevenson, well known in North Houston among other star players, was a bit of a later offer but admitted after committing that the Sooners quickly became his choice after visiting Norman.
|Next: Klein Oak (3-3) hosts Spring Westfield.|
DAN TAPKO - TE 6'4 - 220, Kansas City (Kan.) Rockhurst
|Tapko and the Hawklets kept rolling with a 34-10 win over Jefferson City. |
Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
|Next: Rockhurst (6-0) hosts Raymore-Peculiar.|
KENDAL THOMPSON - QB 6'2 - 180, Moore (Okla.) Southmoore
|Thompson was held out of Southmoore's 34-27 loss to Norman as he recovers after a sprained knee ligament in week two. |
Thompson, who has been well known since his peewee days as the son of former Sooner option quarterback Charles Thompson, was a selection for the 2010 Elite 11.
|Next: Southmoore (4-2) travels to Broken Arrow.|
JORDAN WADE - DT 6'4 - 293, Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point
|Wade had five tackles (four solo), and one sack in Stony Point's 49-35 win over Georgetown. |
Some believe that the talented Wade, who also has MLB aspirations, could be one of Texas' most under rated linemen.
|Next: Stony Point (6-0) travels to Georgetown.|
COOPER WASHINGTON - DE 6'4 - 225, Muleshoe, Texas
|Washington and the Mules got back on the right track with a 54-7 win over Slaton with Washington going 18-for-27 for 270-yards and five touchdowns.|
Washington hails from a town that has produced very little major athletic talent but reminds some of Auston English, who hailed from a similar situation.
|Next: Muleshoe (5-1) travels to Bushland.|
BRANDON WILLIAMS - RB 6'1 - 188, Brookshire (Texas) Royal
|Williams had the Falcons had an off week. |
Williams is perhaps the biggest home-run threat in a historic class of running backs in the state of Texas, and chose the Sooners after an early commitment to Baylor.
|Next: Royal (5-1) hosts Stafford.|
DANZEL WILLIAMS - ATH 5'9 - 190, Arlington (Texas) Martin
|Williams had 10 carries for 135-yards and four touchdowns (24, 5, 51, 4) in a 43-6 win over rival Arlington Sam Houston. |
Williams is one of the more diverse members of the class with the potential to play at either running back or safety at the college level.
|Next: Martin (4-2) travels to North Crowley.|
