Shawnee’s Tristan Wyatt enjoyed the attention and vibe from Tulsa.
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.”
Wyatt, a 6-foot-4, 292-pound tackle, received the offer from Tulsa in May. It was his lone official Division I scholarship offer.
Wyatt is ranked No. 17 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 list of the state’s top college recruits.
MILLWOOD’S LITTLE, MIDWEST CITY TRIO ADD OFFERS
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.
Gatewood has been incredibly productive the last two seasons in the Bomber secondary. McKinney is a unique prospect at 6-4, 195 pounds, because he could be a receiver or safety at the next level, or add enough weight to move into a linebacker role. And Harrison is an intriguing prospect because he’s entering just his second season as a football player. At 6-5, 290, Harrison has a 6-11 wingspan and is learning fast.
So far, five players on the Midwest City defense have offers Division I or II programs.
