With the Oklahoma coaches having the week off, it was a good weekend for their roster of commitments to come through in a big way. And as only two of the Sooner commits went home with losses, and one big performance followed another it's safe to say the future Norman residents came through.
The most explosive play of the night would have to go to the Sooners most recent commitment, three-star wide receiver Corey Wilson. The 6-foot, 184-pound Wilson in a huge district 6-5A match-up returned Lewisville Hebron's first kickoff 100 yards for an electrifying touchdown.
"Wilson bolted down the right sideline and cut toward the middle of the field at about the 40-yard line to make the last Hebron player miss before strolling to the end zone," according to Dallas Morning News writer Brandon George.
Wilson nearly duplicated the feat taking a third quarter kickoff 97 yards for another touchdown, but the points were erased off the board after a somewhat unnecessary holding call was granted to Hebron.
In the end, Wilson's efforts weren't matched by his team and the Mustangs fell short in a game that many believe was an early season battle for the district title.
While Wilson was in a dogfight, last week's SoonerScoop.com player of the week, cornerback Jamell Fleming, coasted to an easy 42-7 win over Midlothian.
Oklahoma commitments from Texas were a solid 2-1 on the week as Desmond Jackson won a key district tilt against Bastrop 27-14. The Matador four-star prospect managed a crucial interception in the game.
In state Oklahoma had another player turn in a huge performance as one of the Sooners earliest commitments, defensive end Jontae Bumpus collected a pair of sacks as well as a 39 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown.
The always humble Bumpus had a laugh at how the play took place.
"We had called a blitz and one of my teammates hit the quarterback, well the ball kind of fell to me but I thought it was an incomplete pass. I saw the referee throw down the white (bean bag) and knew that meant it was a fumble so I just started running towards the end zone," Bumpus laughed. "The guys were kind of laughing at me for standing over it for a while."
The touchdown was just a piece of Muskogee's annihilation of Bartlesville in a 57-10 victory for the Roughers.
Meanwhile the Enid Plainsmen fought through it's first week without Austin Box, however offensive lineman Kody Cooke helped clear out passing lanes for a young quarterback as the Plainsmen won 35-6.
After a week without field goals last week, Jimmy Stevens booted three as Heritage Hall dominated Mount St. Mary's 37-14. The win sends them into this week into a 2A top 5 battle with second ranked Millwood.
In the junior college ranks Sooner commits had an even split with Phil Loadholt collect a 21-17 win over Highland, while Mike Reed lost a nail biter to De Anza college 37-34.
