Heritage Hall senior Quintaz Struble, an Oklahoman first-team All-State defensive lineman, will take an official visit to Wyoming this weekend.

Struble had scholarship offers from Arizona and Colorado State, but both offers were put on hold when each school fired its respective coach — Mike Stoops at Arizona and Steve Fairchild at CSU.

Struble recorded 62 tackles and eight sacks as a senior, but he was forced to miss Heritage Hall's last four games because of a torn MCL suffered in the Chargers' regular-season finale at Kingfisher.

FREEMAN IMPRESSES AT COMBINE

Midwest City offensive lineman Carlos Freeman was one of a handful of state players to travel to San Antonio for the U.S. Army National Combine, which was held in conjunction with the U.S. Army All-American Bowl earlier this month. Freeman (6-foot-3, 280 pounds) made quite an impression, being the only Oklahoma player listed on Rivals.com's All-Combine Team. Freeman was an honorable mention selection.

Freeman also wrestles for the Bombers. The combine features approximately 500 juniors from around the country. Other state players who participated included Edmond Santa Fe's Khari Harding and Trevan Smith, Douglass' Dior Smiley and Dion'Tay Washington, Edmond North's Heath Newland, Westmoore's James West, McAlester's Devin Rolan and Tahlequah-Sequoyah's Brayden Scott.
