A quick flight home, and there he was this week, battling Paul Bronson for the Wolves' quarterback starting spot.
But nobody got his name out there more than Guthrie football star Kentrell Brothers. He seemed to be on one college visit after another in June and July.
From Washington to Oregon to California to Arizona, Brothers got himself well acquainted with the West Coast.
"You have to go out there and try to market yourself," Brothers said. "You want as many people to see you as possible."
Brothers, loaded with offers, hasn't made a decision, nor has he narrowed his choices.
But nobody is putting on more miles than Edmond Santa Fe track star Gunnar Nixon. It started with a meet in Puerto Rico. From there, he's 'only' gone to Iowa and Kansas for events.
Nixon left for Singapore on Monday and will compete for Team USA in the high jump this week at the first Youth Olympic Games.
Nixon is joined there by three other Oklahomans: Edmond Memorial volleyball star Micha Hancock, Pawhuska discus thrower Sarah Tolson and Norman's Jessica Bead, who is the sole female weightlifter for the US.
