Future Defensive Lineman Battle for Top Honor


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

Anderson injured an ankle on the game's second play but the Knights took care of business 34-0 over Wagner.

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 (7-2) hosts San Marcos.

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

Carter and the Trojans had an off week.

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) hosts Irving MacArthur.

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

Dismuke and the Demons continued a somewhat disappointing slide, falling 21-7 to Ardmore.

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 (5-4) travels to Chickasha.

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

Farniok helped the Warriors cruise to a playoff opening win over Huron 35-0.

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 (9-0) hosts Riggs on Mon. Nov. 1 in the second round of playoffs.

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

Hughes had his first career interception along with six tackles, three tackles for loss in a 59-32 demolition of Spring.

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 (6-3) travels to Klein.

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

Jackson had his biggest game of a shortened season with seven catches for 88-yards but couldn't stop a 35-6 defeat to rival Arlington Lamar.

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 (3-6) hosts Weatherford.

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

Lindley and the Tigers had an off week.

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) hosts Pflugerville.

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

Metoyer was the focus of Marshall's athletic defensive but the Mavericks could do nothing to stop Metoyer's 13-catch 155-yards and two touchdowns in a 43-21 victory for the Wildcats.

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 (7-2) travels to Kilgore.

JORDAN PHILLIPS - DT 6'6 - 290, Towanda (Kansas) Circle - Week 10 MVP

Phillips had the game of his great season with two catches for 44-yards, a 28-yard fumble return for touchdown, seven tackles (six solo), and 2.5 sacks in a 40-7 win over Augusta.

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 (5-4) travels to Topeka Hayden in the first round of the playoffs.

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

Shannon was part of a defense that held Lake Highlands to just 14-points as Skyline claimed a 39-14 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 (7-2) travels to W.T. White.

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

Stevenson registered no catches but the Panthers still managed a 59-32 win over Spring.

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 (6-3) travels to Klein.

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

Tapko and the Hawklets just handed down another beating, this time 41-0 to Joplin.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (10-0) hosts Blue Springs South in the first round of playoffs.

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

Thompson returned to the field for just three possessions, all of which resulted in touchdowns for the Sabercats including a rushing score and a passing touchdown for Thompson in a 56-6 win over Shawnee.

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 (5-4) hosts Putnam City West.

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

Wade and the Tigers had an off week.

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) hosts Pflugerville.

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

Washington had a career high 254-yards rushing and five total touchdowns in a 72-16 demolition of Amarillo River Road.

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 (8-1) travels to Childress.

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

Williams had just another day at the office with 17-carries for 119-yards and three touchdowns (1, 3, 1) in Brookshire's 34-0 win over Bellville.

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 (7-2) travels to Columbus.

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

Williams wasn't asked to do a lot with two catches for 10-yards along with nine carries for 108-yards including a 16-yard touchdown as Martin won 54-0 over Weatherford.

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 (7-2) hosts Fort Worth Paschal.
