GARRICK MCGEE TARGETS ALMA MATER
Alabama-Birmingham football coach Garrick McGee went back to familiar grounds for two of his final recruits for the 2013 class, picking up two late commitments from Tulsa Washington.
McGee starred for the Hornets before going to Oklahoma.
McGee first got a commitment from safety Tajh Lowe, then got a commitment Monday night from cornerback James Caligone.
Hornets coach Marvin Dantzler was thrilled to have McGee recruiting his players.
“I think Garrick's going to be a great job down there,” Dantzler said. “His resume speaks for itself. We've got some guys that can definitely play and hopefully he'll keep recruiting them.
“A lot of our kids know Garrick and what he did here.”
LEXINGTON'S FOREHAND SCORES 44
Lexington's Chad Forehand celebrated his school's homecoming game with a special performance.
Forehand poured in 44 points as Lexington defeated Luther 77-66 on Tuesday night.
Lexington (15-5) is ranked No. 20 in Class 3A with two games remaining in the regular season.
BLUMENTHAL HEADS TO BUTLER WITH CHIP ON SHOULDER
Deer Creek quarterback Joel Blumenthal signed his letter of intent with Butler County Community College (Kan.) with the idea of later becoming a Division I quarterback.
And he now has an added chip on his shoulder after being spurned by Division I teams.
“I've always tried to play with a chip on my shoulder because it kind of always happens that way,” he said. “I feel like I'm as good as anybody out there and if people don't believe, that pushes me harder to go out there and prove them wrong.”
Blumenthal threw for 2,456 yards with 32 touchdowns and just three interceptions last season for the Antlers, who won their first district title since 2001.
But that wasn't enough to earn a Division I scholarship offer.
“He is, in my opinion, the new breed of quarterbacks out there,” Deer Creek coach Grant Gower said. “You see it in the NFL. That was one of the reasons the 49ers were there with (Colin) Kaepernick, that was why RGIII; that's kind of who Joel patterns his game after.”
JOHNSON AIMS TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS AT NEO
Midwest City running back Qualan Johnson only wants to spend one year at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, where he signed his letter of intent Wednesday.
“In the season I was projected to go small Division I, and then my season didn't go the way I wanted it to,” he said. “I know I have the capability to play at the Division I level, so this is a stepping stool to get ready and go prepare for where I want to go.”
Johnson said the coaching staff has told him they want him to handle the bulk of the carries next season, though the Golden Norsemen have a plethora of talented running backs.
Johnson rushed for 870 yards and 12 touchdowns on 149 carries.
“Like I said, I'm just looking for a stepping stool, be there one year and go somewhere else,” he said.
