Del City athlete Corey Lawrence took his recruitment nearly down to the wire before deciding late last week to commit to Oregon State.
Lawrence, No. 16 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits, chose the Beavers over New Mexico and also had offers from Arkansas State, Indiana, Kansas State, New Mexico and Tulsa.
Lawrence primarily played wide receiver for the Eagles this season but is likely to play defensive back at Oregon State. He earned Oklahoman first-team All-State honors as a senior.
With Lawrence's commitment, only two players from the Super 30 remain uncommitted — Lawton MacArthur's Darius Graham (No. 12) and Edmond Santa Fe's Trevan Smith (27).
Another player on the list, Jenks running back Trey'Vonne Barr'e, recently committed to National Junior College Athletic Association champion Iowa Western.
BEATTY LEADS ANADARKO
Anadarko's girls haven't been challenged much this basketball season.
Saturday night figured to be one of those challenges, against unbeaten Weatherford.
But the top-ranked Warriors cruised to a 60-42 win over the No. 3 Eagles to stay unbeaten in Class 4A.
Anadarko's only loss was to Class 6A No. 1 Edmond Santa Fe.
Oklahoma State signee Lakota Beatty suffered an ankle injury earlier in the week but showed no effects against Weatherford, hitting eight 3-pointers and scoring 28 points.
