HANSEN PICKS UP OLE MISS OFFER
Edmond Santa Fe quarterback Justice Hansen picked up his fifth SEC offer late last week, adding Ole Miss to his growing list.
Hansen (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) also has offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Missouri and Texas A&M in the SEC.
He also has offers from Oklahoma and Arizona State.
Hansen, No. 3 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the top 2014 recruits in the state, threw for 3,079 yards and 36 touchdowns as a junior and ran for 773 yards and 14 touchdowns.
YUKON'S BOWLING OFFERED BY TULSA, TEXAS STATE
Rated No. 25 on The Oklahoman's initial Super 30 recruiting rankings for the class of 2014, Yukon offensive lineman Tyler Bowling received his first official scholarship offers recently.
Tulsa and Texas State both came in with offers for the 6-foot-6, 290-pound tackle, and interest continues to grow from other schools as well. He has an upcoming visit to Baylor scheduled as well.
Meanwhile, his Miller teammate, defensive end Andre Dowuoana-Hammond, 6-2, 235, continues to draw interest from a variety of Division I programs. He and Bowling were both invited to junior day at Oklahoma State last month.
MOORE PULLS OFF SHOCKER OF THE TOURNAMENT
Putnam City's Keegan Moore upset Stillwater's Joe Smith in the 132-pound 6A championship match Saturday night at State Fair Arena, but Moore didn't consider it an upset.
“I was pretty confident I was going to win it,” Moore said.
Moore may have benefitted from Putnam City coach Steve Ferguson's familiarity with the Smith family.
“A little bit, probably,” Ferguson said. “Even still, I didn't do anything. Keegan just went out there and performed.”
Smith, who went unbeaten and won the 113-pound state title last year as a freshman, is the son of Oklahoma State wrestling coach John Smith.
Joe Smith was unbeaten again this season entering Saturday night's championship match.
“I coached at Del City for 30 years,” Ferguson said. “John and I are best friends. I coached all his brothers and worked clinics for him.
“I worked with John forever and I know Joe is just like John. Joe is a stud. He is one of the best high school wrestlers in the state.”
Ferguson, who took over the Putnam City wrestling program four years ago, called the 13-12 match between Moore (39-1) and Smith one of the best he's seen in 46 years attending the state wrestling tournament.
