Navy found the future of its backfield in Oklahoma this week.

Douglass running back Chris High joined Altus’ Diquon Woodhouse in verbally committing to the Naval Academy, according to Douglass coach Willis Alexander.

High, 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, rushed for 1,722 yards and 15 touchdowns while splitting carries to preserve himself for defense. He carried the ball 132 times, averaging 13.0 yards per attempt. He also had 75 tackles and eight sacks as an outside linebacker for the Trojans.

High also had an offer from Morgan State in Baltimore, where teammate Terry Harris is committed.
