Recruiting notebook: Oklahoma snags a pair of Norman walk-ons

by Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh and Trent Shadid Published: February 4, 2014

Edmond Memorial defensive back Ashton Antwine also committed to NEO as a safety, though there is a chance he could play cornerback or outside linebacker.

NEO also has verbal commitments from Edmond Santa Fe's Austin Mack and Cameron Westbrook, along with Southmoore's John Ashcraft and Pierce Spead and Midwest City linebackers Tyquae Russell and Bryan Hartfield.

Farmer and Antwine, though, were a duo many people thought would end up at the Division I level. Farmer verbally committed to Arizona State during his junior season, but decommitted last summer. He since received an offer from Washington State.

Antwine had offers from Navy, South Dakota and Washington State.

CHA'S LINDSEY, GUTHRIE'S BLASSINGAME COMMIT TO UCO

Christian Heritage quarterback Colton Lindsey recently verbally committed to Central Oklahoma following a highly successful season despite playing just eight games.

Lindsey, a first-team defensive back on The Oklahoman's Little All-City football team, threw for 1,748 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also rushed for eight TDs while leading the Crusaders to the second round of the Class 2A playoffs.

Lindsey will be joined by Guthrie defensive lineman Trevor Blassingame, who was a Big All-City first-team selection. He recorded 125 tackles and 15 sacks for the Bluejays this season en route to the Class 5A championship.
