Carter Leads the Way for Trinity in Week 9

FOLLOWING THE FUTURE

MARQUIS ANDERSON - DT 6'3 - 260, Cibolo (Texas) Steele - Week 7 MVP

Anderson had seven tackles(one solo) in a big win for Steele over rival Judson, 25-24.

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 (6-2) travels to Wagoner.

BRANDON CARTER - ATH 5'11 - 161, Euless (Texas) Trinity - WEEK 9 MVP

Carter had another strong night going 2-for-5 for 64-yards passing and a 54-yard touchdown he also had six carries for 81-yards and two touchdowns (4, 25).

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 (9-0) has an off week.

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

Dismuke and the Demons got a good win over Southwest Oklahoma rival Altus 20-6.

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 (5-3) travels to Ardmore.

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

Farniok helped the Warriors crush their biggest rival, O'Gorman, 35-7.

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 (8-0) hosts Hurston on Oct. 26.

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

Hughes had another solid night with four assisted tackles and a sack in a 24-17 win over Tomball.

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 (5-3) hosts Spring.

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

Jackson was part of an offensive explosion with two carries for 27-yards along with three catches for 58-yards including a 34-yard touchdown as Sam Houston downed North Crowley 46-43.

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 (3-5) travels to Arlington Lamar.

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

Lindley had a solid game with three tackles (one solo) in a 42-7 demolition of rival Round Rock.

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 (9-0) has an off week.

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

Metoyer had another huge night with 108-yards and two touchdowns including one of 45-yards in the first half as Whitehouse dominated Pine Tree 55-7.

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 (6-2) hosts Marshall.

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

Phillips had one catch for 18-yards and one carry for a yard but Phillips fell short with a 35-13 win over Rose Hill.

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 (4-4) travels to Augusta.

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

Shannon was part of a defense that held Sunset to just 65-yards of offense and five first downs as Skyline dominated it's way to a 56-0 win.

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 (6-2) travels to Lake Highlands.

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

Stevenson registered no catches but the Panthers still managed a 24-17 win over Tomball.

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 (5-3) hosts Spring.

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

Tapko and the Hawklets just handed down another beating, this time 35-7 with Lee's Summit North as the victim.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (9-0) hosts Joplin.

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

Thompson was held out of Southmoore's 70-21 loss to Jenks 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 (4-4) travels to Shawnee.

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

Wade had three tackles(two solo) and a sack in a 42-7 win over Leander.

Some believe that the talented Wade, who also has MLB aspirations, could be one of Texas' most under rated linemen.
Next: Stony Point (9-0) has an off week.

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

Washington had another strong night going 8-for-14 for 93-yards and a 13-yard touchdown along with another 54-yards and two touchdowns (13, 1) on eight carries in a 42-8 demolition over Littlefield.

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 (7-1) hosts Amarillo River Road.

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

Williams showed an ability to fight for tough yards that some had wondered about with 25-carries for 152-yards and two touchdowns(6, 4).

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 (6-1) travels to Columbus.

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

Williams had 18-carries for 125-yards and two scores (3, 11) and also caught a 47-yard touchdown pass in a 33-31 win over Arlington Lamar.

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 (6-2) travels to Weatherford.
