Midwest City cornerback Ricky Reeves has committed to South Dakota, according to Steve Huff, the Bombers coach who has accepted a job in Texas.

Another Bombers defensive standout could be heading there as well.

Reeves took a visit to the school last weekend and made the decision to commit after the trip.

An Oklahoman All-State defensive back, Reeves (5-foot-11, 175 pounds) had 61 tackles and six interceptions as a senior and scored three rushing and a receiving touchdown on offense.

Linebacker Zeke Lewis is making a trip to the school this weekend. Lewis, also an All-Stater, had a 6A-best 169 tackles and added six sacks and an interception.

Reeves joins James Flanders (Tulsa), Dakota Moran (Northeastern State), Devin Crisp (NSU) and C.J. Smith (Emporia State) as Midwest City players committed to play in college. Several others could decide between now and signing day, Feb. 1.

Bethany quarterback Ryley Claborn verbally committed to Southwestern Oklahoma State in Weatherford. Yukon quarterback Corben Jones will sign with Emporia (Kan.) State, and Yukon offensive lineman Tyler Bush has committed to Southeastern State in Durant.

Claborn quarterbacked the Bronchos to the state semifinals and quarterfinals in his final two seasons. As a senior, he threw for 1,883 yards with 22 touchdowns and six interceptions, completing 122 of 207 passes (58.9 percent).

As a three-year starter for the Millers, Jones guided the team to three consecutive playoff appearances, snapping a decade-long postseason drought.
