Anderson Takes Home MVP Honors for Week 8

FOLLOWING THE FUTURE

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

Anderson, with seven tackles(three solo), two tackles for loss and two quarterback hurries, was part of a strong defensive effort as Steele defeated New Braunfels 14-10.

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 (5-2) hosts Converse Judson.

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

Carter had another strong night going 1-for-1 for 44-yards passing as well as three carries for 91-yards and two touchdowns (35, 48).

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 (8-0) travels to Grapevine.

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

Dismuke and the Demons continue to struggle against 5A's top teams falling 24-14 to Lawton MacArthur.

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 (4-3) hosts Altus.

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

Farniok helped the Warriors crush the state's fifth ranked team, Stevens, 54-6.

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 O'Gorman on Thurs. Oct. 21.

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

Hughes had another solid night leading a strong Oak defense to a 30-14 win over Spring Westfield.

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 (4-3) travels to Tomball.

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

Jackson had his best game of the season with six catches for 79-yards including a 30-yard touchdown.

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 (2-5) hosts North Crowley.

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

Lindley had his biggest game of the season with seven tackles(five solo), and two sacks in a narrow 16-13 win over Leander.

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 (8-0) travels to Round Rock.

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

Metoyer had a solid six catches for 59-yards and a 2-yard touchdown against one of Texas' top defenses but Whitehouse came up a bit short 21-14 against Tyler John Tyler.

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 (5-2) hosts Pine Tree.

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

Phillips had a huge night on offense with two touchdowns (42, 80) and 131-yards total as Circle dominated El Dorado 63-0.

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 (4-3) hosts Rose Hill.

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

Shannon helped the Raiders to another district win shutting down Samuell to the tune of just 68-yards passing in a 55-7 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 (5-2) hosts Sunset.

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

Stevenson had another big night for the Panthers with seven catches for 78-yards in a 30-14 win over Spring Westfield.

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 (4-3) travels to Tomball.

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

Tapko and the Hawklets got a surprising challenge from Raymore-Peculiar but managed a 14-6 win.

Tapko's high school claims former Sooners Brandon Shelby and Kenyon Rasheed as alumni.
Next: Rockhurst (8-0) travels to Lee's Summit North.

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

Thompson was held out of Southmoore's 56-28 loss to Broken Arrow 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 (4-3) hosts Jenks.

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

Wade had six tackles(two solo) in a 16-13 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 (8-0) travels to Round Rock.

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

Washington didn't have to carry his usual load with just 183-yards and three touchdowns (68, 36, 35) on 6-of-15 passing.

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 (5-1) travels to Bushland.

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

Williams had a week off after the toughest game of his senior season and got back on track with 13-carries for 218-yards and three touchdowns (13, 48, 57) in a 28-6 win over Stafford.

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 a well-rounded night witha 27-yard touchdown pass to his quarterback as well as 16-carries for 119-yards and a 5-yard touchdown run as Martin rolled over North Crowley 57-0.

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 (5-2) hosts Arlington Lamar.
