McGuinness lineman Higgins gaining interest
Bishop McGuinness lineman Johnathan Higgins continues to gain interest in recruiting circles, with programs like Florida State, Tennessee and Iowa State getting involved recently.
Higgins, a 6-foot-5, 275-pound junior, has yet to receive an offer, but other programs, like Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech have been showing interest for a while now.
He'll make visits to Wake Forest and Navy later this month. A strong student, Higgins is also getting recruited by the likes of Harvard, Princeton, Brown and Holy Cross.
HANSEN PICKS UP K-STATE OFFER
Edmond Santa Fe quarterback Justice Hansen continues to rake in the offers.
He added another late last week when Kansas State joined the mix.
It's the second offer from a Big 12 school for the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Hansen. He's also gotten an offer from Oklahoma.
Hansen also has offers from five SEC teams, including Texas A&M and Auburn, plus Arizona State.
Hansen threw for 3,079 yards and 36 touchdowns with nine interceptions as a junior. He also ran for 773 yards and 14 touchdowns.

EDMOND NORTH LOOKS TO REPEAT
The Edmond North boys and girls are the defending state tennis champions.
The Huskies will be a heavy favorite to win their fourth straight boys title with reigning state champions Nate Roper and David Hager returning at No. 1 and No. 2 singles. Roper, considered the best player in the state, has already won tournaments at Jenks and Tulsa Union this season.
On the girls' side, Edmond North has won three of the last four state titles but was hit hard by graduation.
“I got some holes to fill,” Edmond North girls coach Dee Ann Wallar said. “We are still trying to determine the best lineup for us.”
