It’s a busy time of year on the football recruiting trail, and here are a few updates on some names you might know.

Kingfisher star Landon Nault commits to Emporia State

Kingfisher running back Landon Nault verbally committed to Emporia (Kan.) State, according to coachesaid.com.

Nault, who was a national finalist for the Wendy’s High School Heisman, rushed for 2,304 yards and 45 touchdowns as a senior, concluding his career with over 8,000 yards from scrimmage and 132 TDs.

Arkansas offers Midwest City’s Sunderland

Already established as one of the top prospects in the state’s 2015 recruiting class, Midwest City safety Will Sunderland’s offer list expanded to the SEC on Monday with an offer from Arkansas.

Sunderland, a first-team Oklahoman All-State selection, had 98 tackles and five interceptions as a junior. The 6-foot-3, 194-pounder already has offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Tulsa, with several other programs showing interest.

OKC trio staying in state

Three Oklahoma City football standouts have decided to state in state for college.

Douglass linebacker Johnny Jones verbally committed to Central Oklahoma on Monday, choosing the Bronchos over Division I FCS Morgan State, among other opportunities. Jones was a Little All-City first-team selection and had 74 tackles, six sacks and five interceptions as a senior.

Southeast linemen Marguess Smith and Anthony Bryant also made their college choices. Smith, a standout on the defensive line, committed to Northeaster Oklahoma A&M after a senior season that included 131 tackles (24 for loss) and eight sacks as a defensive tackle.

Bryant, who played defensive end and tight end, had 57 tackles and five sacks as a senior. He committed to Southern Nazarene.
