MILLWOOD'S BATSON LANDS FIRST OFFER

Rated No. 24 on The Oklahoman's recently released Super 30 list ranking the state's top football recruits in the 2014 class, Millwood's Cameron Batson has picked up his first scholarship offer.

Washington State extended an offer on Wednesday, which was initially reported by Rivals.com.

Washington State's only interaction with Batson, 5-foot-9, 165 pounds, was viewing his game tape, which Millwood coaches sent to Cougars coach Mike Leach.

“They like me as a receiver,” Batson said. “A lot of the schools I'm hearing from see me as a receiver, but some are looking at me as an athlete.”

CHANCELLOR TO WALK ON AT OU

The recruiting process dragged out a little longer than usual for McGuinness receiver Cody Chancellor, but a week after national signing day, he found his destination.

Chancellor, 6-foot-3, 165 pounds, will head to Oklahoma as a preferred walk-on, McGuinness coach Justin Jones said Wednesday.

Chancellor turned down an opportunity at Ohio, which was offering a scholarship starting in January 2014. And he was being recruited by a variety of other schools, including some in the Ivy League.

Oklahoma State was also pursuing him, and came close to offering him after receiver Fred Ross of Tyler, Texas, flipped his commitment the night before signing day.

A longtime OU fan, Chancellor settled on the Sooners. An Oklahoman All-State selection, he finished the year with 1,397 yards and 21 touchdowns on 61 catches in helping the Irish to the Class 5A semifinals.

DUKES GETS 400TH WIN

Best known for his nearly three decades as Del City's boys basketball coach, Allen Dukes also worked at U.S. Grant, Capitol Hill, and now, Casady, which is where he achieved a milestone Monday night.

With a 62-43 win over SeeWorth Academy, Dukes earned his 400th win as a high-school coach.

Dukes is in his third season as Casady's head coach, after spending the previous 27 at Del City.
