Danzel Williams Leads Sooner Commits in Week 6

FOLLOWING THE FUTURE

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

Anderson and the Knights had an off week.

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) hosts Seguin on Thurs. Sept. 7.

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

Carter had a pedestrian night with three catches for 22-yards and five carries for 18-yards in a 45-22 win over Hurst L.D. Bell.

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 (6-0) travels to Haltom.

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

Dismuke and the Demons got their second straight win a 42-10 victory over Durant.

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 (3-2) travels to Northwest Classen.

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

Farniok helped his team to over 500-yards of offense-including nearly 300-yards rushing- in a 48-20 win over Brookings.

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 (6-0) travels to Spearfish.

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

Hughes had nine tackles, two tackles for loss, and one sack in a 44-14 rout of Klein Forest.

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 (3-2) travels to Spring Dekaney.

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

Jackson is starting to find his groove with five catches for 63-yards but the Texans fell to rival Bowie 49-34.

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 (2-3) travels to Arlington Martin.

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

Lindley had six tackles in a 37-8 win over Round Rock McNeil.

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 (6-0) travels to Georgetown.

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

Metoyer had seven catches for 124-yards and two touchdowns (9, 40) in a 49-14 win over Hallsville.

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 (4-1) hosts Nacogdoches.

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

Another huge week for Phillips as he had 12 tackles, a sack and 60-yard receiving but Circle had a tough night falling 45-0 to Wichita Collegiate.

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 (3-2) travels to Andale.

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

Shannon helped the Raiders to another stellar defensive performance allowing just over 200-yards and creating four turnovers in a 16-3 win over Richardson.

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 (3-2) travels to Jesuit.

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

Stevenson had three catches for 53-yards in a 44-14 victory over Klein Forest.

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 (3-2) travels to Spring Dekaney.

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

Tapko and the Hawklets kept rolling with a 34-13 win over Hickman.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (6-0) hosts Jefferson City.

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

Thompson was held out of Southmoore's 51-27 win over Sapulpa 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 (4-1) hosts Norman.

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 37-8 win over Round Rock McNeil.

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 had a tough night throwing four interceptions but still threw for 163-yards and a nine-yard scorew and running for another 78 and two touchdowns (2, 7) but Muleshoe fell for the first time all season 27-20 to Bushland.

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 had his first tough night of the season with 22 carries for 57-yards and a one-yard touchdown run, not coincidentally it was also Royal's first loss 21-15 to Caldwell.

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 completed a 28-yard pass but it was his 266-yards and five touchdowns (6, 5, 17, 80, 23) on 18-carries as Martin downed rival Arlington high 62-35.

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 (3-2) hosts Arlington Sam Houston.
