Sooner Commits Get Rolling Into District Races

FOLLOWING THE FUTURE

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

Anderson was the anchor of Steele's defense that dominated Austin high 27-7.

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 (3-2) has an off week.

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

Carter had four carries for 33-yards and four catches for 63-yards in an important 42-7 win over Colleyville Heritage.

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 (5-0) travels to Hurst L.D. Bell.

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

Dismuke and the Demons got back on the winning track opening district play with a 55-0 demolition of Capitol Hill.

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 (2-2) hosts Durant.

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

Farniok was part of his team's considerable beating of Rapid City Central 54-7.

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 (5-0) hosts Brookings.

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

Hughes split time between middle linebacker and defensive end and had a pair of tackles for loss and multiple tackles in open space but Oak still fell to Collins 24-9.

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 (2-2) travels to Klein Forest.

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

Jackson's first game back from suspension was a solid outing with four catches for 34-yards in his team's 41-24 win over Fort Worth Paschal.

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 (2-2) travels to Arlington Bowie.

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

Lindley had nine tackles in a 27-14 win over rival Round Rock Westwood.

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 (5-0) hosts Round Rock McNeil.

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

Metoyer had seven catches for 115-yards and two touchdowns (18, 37) in a 28-14 win over district playoff rival Jacksonville.

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 (3-1) hosts Jacksonville.

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

Another huge week for Phillips with a touchdown, a blocked punt, and six tackles in a 38-19 win over Wellington.

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 (3-1) travels to Wichita Collegiate.

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

Shannon helped the Raiders to their first district win, a 27-14 triumph over Richardson Berkner.

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 (2-2) travels to Richardson Berkner.

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

Stevenson had three catches for 26-yards but Oak fell to Klein Collins 24-9.

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 (2-2) travels to Klein Forest.

DAN TAPKO - TE 6'4 - 220, Kansas City (Kan.) Rockhurst - Week 5 MVP

Tapko had a big night with a 19-yard interception return for touchdown and a three-yard touchdown catch to help Rockhurst win 40-21 over Columbia Rock Bridge.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (5-0) hosts Hickman.

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

Thompson was held out of Southmoore's 41-40 barnburner against Muskogee 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 (3-1) hosts Sapulpa on Sept. 30.

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

Wade was a part of his team's continuing roll to an undefeated season in a 27-14 win over Round Rock Westwood.

Some believe that the talented Wade, who also has MLB aspirations, could be one of Texas' most under rated linemen.
Next: Stony Point (5-0) hosts Round Rock McNeil.

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

Washington sat out the first half with an injury but came on in the second half going 7-for-14 for 115-yards and a touchdown (57) in his team's 31-7 victory over Roosevelt.

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 (4-0) travels to Bushland.

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

Williams kept up his incredible pace with 31-carries for 277-yards and two touchdowns (70, 21) in Royal's 39-25 win over Sweeny.

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 (5-0) travels to Caldwell.

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

Williams was a huge part of his team's big win over rival Arlington Bowie 38-14. On the night Williams had 20 carries for 158-yards and a touchdown (73).

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 (2-2) travels to Arlington.
