Edmond Memorial junior running back Warren Wand has been waiting for his first collegiate offer.

That wait ended Monday evening as Southern Mississippi offered the 5-foot-7 speedster.

“Just got an offer from Southern Miss!” Wand posted on Twitter. “Give all the glory to god!”

Wand rushed for 1,769 yards and 15 touchdowns last season, following a sophomore season in which he rushed for 1,812 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Wand was No. 15 on the first edition of The Oklahoman’s Super 30 for 2015.


Anthonio Humphrey, who posted last year’s fasted 800-meter time in the state regardless of class, announced Tuesday that he has signed a letter of intent with the University of Kansas track program.

The Douglass senior won the Class 4A title in the 800, then posted a school record of 1:53.7 at the Meet of Champions last spring. Over the summer, he cut his time down to 1:51, and has his sights set on the Junior Olympic record of 1:49.

“I think I can pop a 1:48,” he said with a smile. “That’s my goal for this year.”

Humphrey chose Kansas over Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and several other college programs who recruited him. He is nationally ranked in the event on Dyestat track and field ranking system.

Humphrey said he settled on Kansas for the opportunity to go out of state and experience something different.

“I’m gonna be out on my own,” he said. “I didn’t just want to be another Oklahoma athlete going to an Oklahoma college. Kansas seemed like the best fit for me. They expect big things from me and I expect big things from myself.
