Carter Continues to Amaze

FOLLOWING THE FUTURE

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

Anderson had a big-time game holding a mighty rushing attack of SA MacArthur to 200-yards below it's season average in a 49-26 win.

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 (12-2) meets Houston Memorial in the state semifinals on Saturday at SA's Heroes Stadium.

BRANDON CARTER - ATH 5'11 - 161, Euless (Texas) Trinity - WEEK 15 MVP

Forget it, I've run out of superlatives to talk about how dynamic Carter is, just look at the stats against one of teh top teams in the state of Texas; 4-for-5 for 79-yards passing and a 12-yard touchdown pass along with 13-carries for 149-yards and a one-yard touchdown run along with a and finally a 24-yard reception in Trinity's heartstopping 41-40 win over Coppell.

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 (14-0) meets Stony Point in the state semifinals on Saturday at Waco's Floyd Casey Stadium

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

Duncan (6-5) finished their season in the first round of the playoffs.

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: N/A

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

Washington (12-0) ended their season as South Dakota State Champions.

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: N/A.

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

Klein Oak (8-4) finished their season in the second round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Sam Houston finished their season at 4-6.

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: N/A.

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

As Lindley gets into bigger games his play seems to be picking up accordingly. In a 72-48 win over Desoto Lindley had seven tackles (six solo), a pass deflected, and a 42-yard interception return for touchdown.

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 (14-0) meets Euless Trinity in the state semifinals on Saturday at Waco's Floyd Casey Stadium.

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

Whitehouse (9-2) finished their season in the second round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Circle (5-5) ended their season in the first round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Skyline (9-3) finished their season in the second round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Klein Oak (8-4) finished their season in the second round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Tapko sat out most of the second half seeming to suffer a knee injury, the degree of which is yet unknown, but the Hawklets had enough to beat Hazlewood Central 10-7 for the state championship.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (14-0) won the Missouri Class 6 state championship game.

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

Southmoore finished their season at 6-4.

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: N/A.

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

Wade, with four tackles (three solo) and a sack helped Stony Point keep moving through the playoffs in a 72-48 win over Desoto.

Some believe that the talented Wade, who also has MLB aspirations, could be one of Texas' most under rated linemen.
Next: Stony Point (14-0) meets Euless Trinity in the state semifinals on Saturday at Waco's Floyd Casey Stadium.

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

Muleshoe (11-2) finished their season in the third round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Royal (9-4) finished their season in the third round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.

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

Martin (10-3) finished their season in the third round of the playoffs.

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: N/A.
