Jenks receiver Jordan Smallwood has been committed to Oklahoma for months, the third in-state commit behind Tulsa East Central's Stanvon Taylor and D.J. Ward, then of Lawton.

Smallwood was glad to be joined in the last month by Tulsa Washington's Dominique Alexander and Norman North's Jordan Evans as well as 2014 running back Devon Thomas of Broken Arrow.

“It's getting to be a lot of them,” Smallwood said after helping Jenks finish off a 55-20 win over Evans' Norman North team Friday night to take the Class 6A title. “Oklahoma's starting to step up recruiting in the state.”
