Here's a timeline of The Oklahoman sports staff's coverage plans for National Signing Day on Wednesday:
7:30 a.m.: Hurst, Texas
L.D. Bell defensive end Vili Leveni and offensive lineman Jesse Robinson will sign with Oklahoma State. While Robinson, 6-6, 275, has long been a part of the Cowboy class, Leveni was the latest piece added. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive end flipped on his Utah commitment over the weekend, shoring up a position of immediate need for the Pokes.
8:30 a.m.: Norman
At Norman North, linebacker Jordan Evans, 6-3, 205, will sign with Oklahoma, following the footsteps of his father, Scott Evans, who starred at OU in the late 1980s. Down the road at Norman High, offensive lineman Zac Uhles will sign with Tulsa. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Uhles was part of a workhorse line that opened holes for the Tigers' run game, led by Imond Robinson. The running back will sign with Arkansas Tech.
9:30 a.m.: Westmoore
While Nick Hardaway is heading to OU as a preferred walk-on, five other Jaguars will be signing letters of intent, including Josh Morgan and Jhames West, each signing with East Central in Ada.
10:30 a.m.: Midwest City, Del City and Irving, Texas
Washington State coach Mike Leach always liked to pluck a few Okies when he was coaching at Texas Tech, and he's hitting the state again, despite being much farther away. Midwest City offensive lineman Carlos Freeman will sign with the Cougars. At Del City, athlete Corey Lawrence is heading northwest as well, signing with Oregon State. Irving (Texas) High's Jaxon Salinas is actually one of the smaller offensive linemen in OSU's signing class, despite measuring 6-4, 290.
11:30 a.m.: Oklahoma State
OSU coach Mike Gundy will take the podium to discuss the Cowboys' 2013 signing class.
1 p.m.: Jenks
Another talented crop of football players from the state champion Jenks Trojans will sign letters of intent, highlighted by Jordan Smallwood. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver is bound for Oklahoma, while The Oklahoman's Offensive Player of the Year, running back Trey'Vonne Barr'e, will follow the junior-college route at Iowa Western.
1:30 p.m.: Tuttle
A late grab in the recruiting process, and the only Oklahoma product in OSU's recruiting class, Tuttle's Dawson Bassett will sign with the Cowboys. The younger brother of former Poke Cooper Bassett, Dawson is 6-4 and 215 pounds. His future position is still a question mark, likely either as a linebacker, tight end, or eventually, a defensive end.
2 p.m.: Douglass and Deer Creek
Douglass High School is once again sending a group of athletes to the next level, highlighted by running back Chris High, who will sign with Navy. Defensive back Terry Harris is heading to Morgan State, among other Douglass signings. Deer Creek will finalize a long list of college signings, including three players — Austin Loomis, Tyler Follis and Jarred Rayburn — bound for Southwestern Oklahoma State, while quarterback Joel Blumenthal will sign with Butler Community College in Kansas.
2:30 p.m.: Southmoore
Southmoore is sending a large group of players into the college football world, including a pair of unique signings. Defensive end D.J. Ward, who never played a snap at Southmoore because of OSSAA eligibility issues and has already enrolled at OU, will come back to sign with the other SaberCats. And Jackson Stallings is bound for the Ivy League, intending to sign with Yale.
2:40 p.m.: Edmond Santa Fe
Previously an Arkansas commit, Santa Fe safety Khari Harding will sign with Auburn and new coach Gus Malzahn, while Phillip Sumpter is headed to Memphis, along with other Wolves bound for college football.
3 p.m.: Norman and Tulsa Washington
OU coach Bob Stoops will appear with the media to talk about his signing class. Meanwhile at Tulsa Washington, one of Stoops' future players will be celebrating his signing as linebacker Dominque Alexander holds his signing ceremony.
