Del City athlete Corey Lawrence took his recruitment nearly down to the wire before deciding late last week to commit to Oregon State.
Lawrence, No. 16 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits, chose the Beavers over New Mexico and also had offers from Arkansas State, Indiana, Kansas State, New Mexico and Tulsa.
Lawrence primarily played wide receiver for the Eagles this season but is likely to play defensive back at Oregon State. He earned Oklahoman first-team All-State honors as a senior.
With Lawrence's commitment, only two players from the Super 30 remain uncommitted — Lawton MacArthur's Darius Graham (No. 12) and Edmond Santa Fe's Trevan Smith (27).
Another player on the list, Jenks running back Trey'Vonne Barr'e, recently committed to National Junior College Athletic Association champion Iowa Western.
BEATTY LEADS ANADARKO
Anadarko's girls haven't been challenged much this basketball season.
Saturday night figured to be one of those challenges, against unbeaten Weatherford.
But the top-ranked Warriors cruised to a 60-42 win over the No. 3 Eagles to stay unbeaten in Class 4A.
Anadarko's only loss was to Class 6A No. 1 Edmond Santa Fe.
Oklahoma State signee Lakota Beatty suffered an ankle injury earlier in the week but showed no effects against Weatherford, hitting eight 3-pointers and scoring 28 points.
JONES' LEE PLANS TO WALK ON AT OU
Jones kicker Nathan Lee was one of the best kickers in the state as a senior.
Now, Lee plans on trying to kick at Oklahoma, accepting a spot as a preferred walk-on for the Sooners.
Lee hit 5 of 9 field-goal tries this season, with a long of 42.
Lee isn't the only former Longhorns player who plans on continuing the sport in college.
Wide receiver/defensive back Randall Case is committed to East Central and lineman Clay Hunt is committed to Mid-America (Kan.) Nazarene.
DEER CREEK'S LOOMIS, YUKON'S SANCHEZ COMMIT TO SWOSU
Deer Creek linebacker Austin Loomis committed to Southwestern Oklahoma State over the weekend.
Loomis had a huge senior year, racking up 245 tackles, including 20 for loss, earning Oklahoman Big All-City honors.
Former Deer Creek assistant Michael Collins is SWOSU's wide receivers coach.
Also, Yukon wide receiver Codey Sanchez verbally committed to Southwestern last week.
Sanchez, 6-1, 175 pounds, was among the state's top receivers with 1,170 yards and 14 touchdowns as a senior.
He is the fifth Yukon player to commit to a Division II program.
ALVA'S MCGEHEE COMMITS TO NWOSU
Alva running back Tanner McGehee recently committed to Northwestern Oklahoma State.
McGehee was the District 2A-1 Running Back of the Year and was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association's All-State team after rushing for 1,592 yards and 19 touchdowns and recording 57 tackles and a pair of interceptions on defense.
