Recruiting: Tettleton Calls Visit 'Awesome'

"I thought it was great, awesome," said Norman (North), Okla. quarterback Tyler Tettleton, who was at the Oklahoma State home opener with his father and Norman North teammate Cody Hughes. "I had a great time and I really like what Oklahoma State is doing on offense. The stadium was great and the coaches were all really nice to me. My dad (former major leaguer Mickey Tettleton) liked it."

The 6-0, 185-pound Tyler Tettleton played his first game in nearly two years last Thursday night in helping his North Timberwolves to a 58-0 opening-season win over rival Norman.

Tettleton is coming off a knee injury that he suffered in a scrimmage before his junior season and subsequent surgery that kept him out of the season. This spring he proved he was back physically running a 4.5 forty-yard dash, faster than his time before the injury. In his return game he scored on a one-yard touchdown run, but it was a hard game to get comfortable in returning to action.

"We never had the ball that long," explained Tettleton. "We seem to score on almost every other play. Early in the game I was nervous and timid, but then I seemed to get in rhythm and I think it will be that way as I work my way into the season. I don't think it will take long for me to be back to my old self."

This week the Timberwolves travel to the east side of the state to visit a talented Muskogee team that eliminated Norman North last season in the 6A playoffs.

Tettleton is really pretty clear on what he thinks about his recruitment.

"I can really narrow it down to two or three schools -- Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Kansas State," he said. "I was going to go see Iowa State play this weekend but they are on the road at Iowa. I think I am going to go up and see them play not this week but the week after next."

Meanwhile, many eyes will be on Tyler as he continues getting back to being comfortable as one of the better dual threat quarterbacks in this region.
