Williams Leads Big Week for Sooner Commits


MARQUIS ANDERSON - DT 6'3 - 260, Cibolo (Texas) Steele

Most notably Anderson had a fumble recovery as Steele got back on the winning track 24-14 over Round Rock.

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 (1-1) travels to Kerrville Tivy.

BRANDON CARTER - ATH 5'11 - 161, Euless (Texas) Trinity

Carter had another impressive all-purpose effort going 2-for-2 for 96-yards and catching two passes for 27-yards in Trinity's astonishing 80-26 win over nationally ranked Shiloh Christian.

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 (2-0) travels to Richland.

DYLAN DISMUKE - OL 6'6 - 292, Duncan, Okla.

In, arguably, the state's game of the week Dismuke and Demons laid an egg falling 25-0 to fellow top 10 5A school Guthrie.

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 (0-1) hosts Noble.

DEREK FARNIOK - OL 6'9 - 319, Sioux Falls (S.D.) Washington

Farniok was part of his team's important 38-12 win over Lincoln, in particular helping the Warriors run for over 200-yards.

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 (1-0) will host Lincoln.

NATHAN HUGHES - DE 6'6 - 263, Klein (Texas) Oak

Hughes split his time at defensive end and middle linebacker collecting 11 tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack in Oak's 27-10 win over Cy-Creek.

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 (2-0) travels to Galena Park North Shore.

KAMEEL JACKSON - WR 6' - 198, Arlington (Texas) Sam Houston

Jackson is missing the first three games of the season.

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 (1-1) hosts Lake Dallas.

P.L. LINDLEY - LB 6'2 - 225, Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point

Lindley had four tackles and a sack in Stony Point's 56-14 win over San Antonio Wagner.

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 (2-0) hosts Monterrey Tech.

TREY METOYER - WR 6'2 - 198, Whitehouse, Texas

Metoyer failed to find paydirt but did have 10-catches for 116-yards in Whitehouse's 42-6 win over rival Tyler Chapel Hill.

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 (2-0) travels to Sulphur Springs.

JORDAN PHILLIPS - DT 6'6 - 290, Towanda (Kansas) Circle

Phillips was a big part of his team's 14-7 win over Maize South with three forced turnovers, more than 10 tackles and two blocked punts.

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 (1-0) hosts Valley Center.

FRANKLIN SHANNON - S 6'2- 210, Dallas Skyline

Shannon and Skyline had a tough day with their second straight Florida team falling 31-3 to Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas.

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 (0-2) travels to Arlington Bowie on Sept. 11.

MAX STEVENSON - TE 6'6 - 240, Klein (Texas) Oak

Stevenson had another solid outing with four catches for 47-yards in a 27-10 win over Cy-Creek.

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 (2-0) travels to Galena Park North Shore.

DAN TAPKO - TE 6'4 - 220, Kansas City (Kan.) Rockhurst

Tapko helped the Hawklets defeat six-time defending state champions Hutchinson, 29-28 with five catches for 52-yards.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (2-0) travels to Blue Springs South.

KENDAL THOMPSON - QB 6'2 - 180, Moore (Okla.) Southmoore

Thompson got his senior year off to the right start with 163-yards passing and a score along with 54-yards rushing in a 40-19 win over Edmond North.

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 (1-0) travels to Westmoore.

JORDAN WADE - DT 6'4 - 293, Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point

Wade had a solid night during his team's 56-14 win over San Antonio Wagner.

Some believe that the talented Wade, who also has MLB aspirations, could be one of Texas' most under rated linemen.
Next: Stony Point (2-0) hosts Monterrey Tech.

COOPER WASHINGTON - TE 6'4 - 225, Muleshoe, Texas

Washington is starring at quarterback for Muleshoe going 13-of-17 for 245 yards and four touchdowns (52, 21, 26, 55) in a 49-8 win over Portales.

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 (2-0) travels to Andrews.

BRANDON WILLIAMS - RB 6'1 - 188, Brookshire (Texas) Royal - WEEK 2 MVP

Williams had yet another massive night with 15-carries for 283-yards and four touchdowns (47, 2, 72, 63) as Royal scraped by Giddings, 34-31.

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 (2-0) hosts Cleveland.

DANZEL WILLIAMS - ATH 5'9 - 190, Arlington (Texas) Martin

Williams had 31-carries for 137-yards and two touchdowns (12, 2) but the Warriors fell to .

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 (0-2) hosts Flower Mound.
