Next year's quarterback class is strong in the state.

Further evidence of that came Thursday when a pair of state QBs were named in the ESPN150 ranking of the country's top prospects for the 2014 class.

Norman North's David Cornwell leads the way at No. 24.

Cornwell (6-foot-5, 235 pounds) moved to Norman North after playing last season at Jones.

His offers include Oklahoma State, Alabama, Auburn, Kansas, Miami, Missouri, Oregon State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech among others.

Edmond Santa Fe's Justice Hansen (6-3, 200) is at No. 93 on the list.

Hansen committed to Oklahoma on Saturday before the spring game, choosing the Sooners over Texas A&M.

NORTHEAST'S EDWARDS SIGNS WITH SOONERS

Northeast point guard T'ona Edwards went past the state tournament without an offer from her first choice.

But Edwards didn't want to settle, holding out for an offer from either Oklahoma or Oklahoma State.

Wednesday, Edwards' dream came true when she signed with the Sooners

Edwards averaged 16.7 points, seven rebounds, six assists and nearly four steals a game in helping the Vikings to a Class 2A state title and a perfect 30-0 season.

She also earned Oklahoman Little All-City Player of the Year honors.

“T'ona is a terrific athlete who gives us immediate depth at the point guard position,” Sooners coach Sherri Coale said. “She is a proven winner, as she led her team to a state championship this year, and she is a competitor.”

ROBERTS STEPS DOWN AT NORMAN NORTH

Butch Roberts has resigned as the boys basketball coach at Norman North, he told The Oklahoman on Thursday.

“I'd like to coach again in the future,” said Roberts, who was the Timberwolves' coach since 2006 after serving as a longtime Norman High assistant. “Being a coach now is harder than it was 10 years ago. I wasn't positive I could give it all it takes, so I decided to take a break.”
