The offensive lineman will have plenty of time to experience that after verbally committing to Tulsa on Wednesday.

“It just felt like the right place for me,” he said. “The campus has an Ivy League feel. and the football team has had an energetic, competitive and upbeat feeling to it. The team had seemed really energetic about getting me since Day 1.”

Millwood defensive end Josh Little picked up another significant college scholarship offer, and Emporia State is trying for another successful haul in Oklahoma in the class of 2015.

Little, a 6-4, 240-pounder, was offered by Kansas State on Monday. Kansas State is among the most prominent of his suitors so far, along with Iowa State, Washington State, Memphis, Tulsa and Purdue, among others.

Emporia State in Kansas snagged multiple top players from Oklahoma last season and is making a push for more this year. On Monday and Tuesday, Emporia offered three players from one of the state’s best defenses.

Midwest City athlete Aaron McKinney, defensive lineman Demikal Harrison and defensive back Roscoe Gatewood all received offers from Emporia.
