OU already snagged a pair of high school teammates for its 2011 recruiting class.

This weekend, the Sooners added another.

Klein Oak (Texas) High School defensive end Nathan Hughes and tight end Max Stevenson both verbally committed to OU on Sunday, according to multiple reports, bringing the Sooners’ commitment total to 11.

Hughes, considered one of the top overall prospects in the state of Texas, as well as the country, chose the Sooners over schools like Alabama, Cal, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, OSU, Oregon and Purdue.

The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Hughes recorded 11 sacks as a junior last season.

Stevenson also had a long offer list, which included Arizona, Cal, LSU, Missouri, Notre Dame and Texas A&M.

Stevenson, 6-6, 225 pounds, caught 19 passes for 314 yards and 2 TDs last season.

They aren’t the only high school teammates committed to OU.

Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point’s P.L. Lindley, a linebacker, and Jordan Wade, a defensive end, pledged to OU in February.
