The offseason momentum of the 2014 quarterback class kept going Wednesday when Norman North's David Cornwell and Edmond Santa Fe's Justice Hansen each picked up new scholarship offers.
Oklahoma State and Miami extended offers to Cornwell, who reported the offers on Twitter. He already had offers from Auburn, Indiana, Tulsa and Washington State.
Hansen added Auburn to his list, which included Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Missouri, Arkansas and Arizona State.
Cornwell, who played at Jones last year, is applying for a waiver from the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association to play this season. Cornwell's eligibility clock began with the start of the 2009 season, though he didn't play varsity football until last year and did not play at all in 2011 as he took a mission trip to Africa.
Cornwell is the fifth in-state player offered by OSU for 2014. He threw for 2,742 yards and 27 touchdowns for Jones last year and ran for 755 yards and six scores.
Hansen threw for 3,079 yards with 36 touchdowns, while rushing for 733 yards and 14 TDs.
CLARK LEADS IN-STATE RIVALS250 PLAYERS
The state's class of football recruits for 2014 has long been thought of as one of the deepest in the last decade.
That received more validation Tuesday when six Oklahoma juniors were named to the Rivals250 list of the nation's top recruits.
Douglass defensive end Deondre Clark leads the way at No. 48. Norman North's Cornwell was next at No. 63.
Jenks defensive back Steven Parker is at No. 114, Edmond Santa Fe's Hansen is at No. 140, Broken Arrow running back Devon Thomas is at No. 155 and Broken Arrow linebacker Gyasi Akem is at No. 238.
Thomas is the only state player who is committed after switching from Oklahoma to Oklahoma State.
Only one state player — Southmoore's D.J. Ward — made the final Rivals250 last year.
MILLWOOD'S BATSON LANDS FIRST OFFER
Rated No. 24 on The Oklahoman's recently released Super 30 list ranking the state's top football recruits in the 2014 class, Millwood's Cameron Batson has picked up his first scholarship offer.
Washington State extended an offer on Wednesday, which was initially reported by Rivals.com.
Washington State's only interaction with Batson, 5-foot-9, 165 pounds, was viewing his game tape, which Millwood coaches sent to Cougars coach Mike Leach.
“They like me as a receiver,” Batson said. “A lot of the schools I'm hearing from see me as a receiver, but some are looking at me as an athlete.”
CHANCELLOR TO WALK ON AT OU
The recruiting process dragged out a little longer than usual for McGuinness receiver Cody Chancellor, but a week after national signing day, he found his destination.
Chancellor, 6-foot-3, 165 pounds, will head to Oklahoma as a preferred walk-on, McGuinness coach Justin Jones said Wednesday.
Chancellor turned down an opportunity at Ohio, which was offering a scholarship starting in January 2014. And he was being recruited by a variety of other schools, including some in the Ivy League.
Oklahoma State was also pursuing him, and came close to offering him after receiver Fred Ross of Tyler, Texas, flipped his commitment the night before signing day.
A longtime OU fan, Chancellor settled on the Sooners. An Oklahoman All-State selection, he finished the year with 1,397 yards and 21 touchdowns on 61 catches in helping the Irish to the Class 5A semifinals.
DUKES GETS 400TH WIN
Best known for his nearly three decades as Del City's boys basketball coach, Allen Dukes also worked at U.S. Grant, Capitol Hill, and now, Casady, which is where he achieved a milestone Monday night.
With a 62-43 win over SeeWorth Academy, Dukes earned his 400th win as a high-school coach.
Dukes is in his third season as Casady's head coach, after spending the previous 27 at Del City.
