Recruiting notebook: Dylan Dismuke, Kendal Thompson are Sooners

BY ROBERT PRZYBYLO AND SCOTT WRIGHT, Staff Writers;; Published: February 2, 2011

Neither Dylan Dismuke of Duncan nor Kendal Thompson of Southmoore showed any signs of backing out from Oklahoma during the entire recruiting process. It didn't change Wednesday.

Thompson, who is already enrolled at OU, and Dismuke both signed with the Sooners and are the only two officially in-state recruits signed by Oklahoma. There are, however, a lot of preferred walk-on players from the state.

“This feels great. It's a dream come true, for sure,” Dismuke said. “I've known since the summer, and nothing changed.”

Thompson was a star quarterback for the SaberCats. Dismuke was among the best offensive linemen in the state.


Millwood star Josh Turner signed his letter of intent with Texas on Wednesday, but that's because he was in Austin at the USA vs. The World All-Star game.

The rest of the Falcons expected to sign with colleges were unable to do so because of the bad roads.

Defensive tackle Davion Pierson will sign with TCU as soon as he can, and the same goes for defensive back Mike Cole, who has committed to Emporia State (Kan.). Allen Starks is expected to sign with Southwestern Oklahoma State.

Running back Shevin Patton and quarterback Kevonte Richardson are expected to sign with Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College.


Yukon will have as many as eight players sign with college programs this week.

Receiver Eric Granado and lineman Travis Hening are going to East Central; receiver Kaiden Horn and defensive end Jake Doyle are heading to Southwestern Oklahoma State; and receiver Kollin Retter and linebacker Jake Henderson are bound for Southwestern College in Winfield, Kan.
