South Grand Prairie's Deron Fontenot was Oklahoma State's very first commitment on Junior Day way back in the early spring. He was there for a spring practice, the first under Mike Gundy, and then a basketball game. He committed later that day and never wavered or budged. Does he feel he missed anything?
"Not really," said the strong 5-11, 205-pounder. "I really wasn't up for chasing my college destination. I wanted to focus on my senior season and not worry about who was watching, whether I got hurt, (or) how I was playing. I just wanted to play and cut loose and have fun."
He did and had the kind of season that warrented honors like first team all-district and all-area.
"I had Oklahoma State on my mind back to my junior year," added Fontenot. "I liked Coach (Vance) Bedford and what he did with the (Chicago) Bears. He didn't just go with the biggest guys, but guys that run around and make plays and that's where I fit in."
Fontenot said he has never had a doubt that he didn't make the right decision. He's ready to jump into it and start playing college football.
