MEJIA COMMITS TO TU
A day after getting Tulsa Union's Dalton Rodriguez to switch his commitment from Oklahoma, Tulsa's recruiting class received another boost from the Redskins when offensive lineman Blake Mejia committed.
Mejia (6-foot-3, 280 pounds) is the ninth in-state commit for the Golden Hurricane and fourth from Union.
He joins Rodriguez, Chris Hall and Khalid Kornegay as Redskins players who intend to sign with Tulsa.
Another state player made his college choice public last week when Deer Creek linebacker Kooper Ruminer committed to Central Oklahoma.
SOUTHEAST BATTLING TOUGH SCHEDULE
The 4-3 record might not show it, but the Southeast boys basketball team is playing well early this season.
Walt Brewer's squad, ranked No. 16 in Class 5A, lost a pair of games at a tournament in Allen, Texas, and dropped a tight one to 6A Stillwater.
Rashawn Thomas, a 6-foot-7 forward, had a triple-double earlier this year and leads a team with a good mix of size and quickness.
“We have a lot of guys who can play several positions,” Brewer said. “They're long and can defend well when they work hard. Hopefully we can gel together at the right time.”
Southeast gets another battle Tuesday night against Northeast, which is No. 1 in Class 2A.
