Southmoore wide receiver Jalen Adams verbally committed to North Texas on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

Adams, who is No. 15 on The Oklahoman's Super 30, also had offers from Air Force, Indiana, New Mexico State, Ohio and Tulsa.

Adams finished the season with 33 receptions for 324 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games for the run-heavy SaberCats.

Southmoore finished the season with a 6-4 record, but missed the playoffs after losing to Mustang in Week 10.


Northeast senior guard LaNesia Williams signed a National Letter of Intent with Oklahoma on Wednesday, the first day of the earning signing period.

Williams, who averaged 15.3 points per game last season and helped lead the Vikings to a state championship, will join her former Northeast teammate — freshman guard T'ona Edwards — on the Sooners' roster next year.

“Nesi is a terrific athlete,” OU coach Sherri Coale said. “She has the ability to get through gaps in the defense before the defense even realizes any gaps are there. That same speed also gives her a chance to be a difference maker on the defensive end where she is capable of wreaking all kinds of havoc on ballhandlers.”



Guthrie senior Jacob Chappell grew up in an Oklahoma State family.

On Thursday, he officially became a Cowboy when he signed his National Letter of Intent to play baseball in Stillwater.

“It really is a dream come true,” Chappell said. “It hasn't really hit me yet, but as soon as I set foot on campus I'll feel like I made it.”

Chappell, the cousin of current OSU wrestler Landry Chappell, is a right-handed hitting shortstop following in a long line of athletes in his family, with all three of his older brothers playing collegiately and his father briefly playing football at OSU.
