Recruiting: Chelf Looks Forward To Union

Quarterback Clint Chelf of Enid, Okla., is verbally committed to Tulsa but he has shown up on unofficial visits on a couple of occasions at Oklahoma State. The 6-3, 195-pound Chelf is a run/pass quarterback that has done a great job in directing the Plainsmen offense this season.

Enid finishes the regular season on Friday night at Tulsa Union and then will open the playoffs next week on the road likely at Jenks. That is a two-week run at the best Oklahoma high school football has to offer. Chelf and his teammates aren't backing down.

"Tomorrow night (Friday) we can't move up or down so we are going to get out there and see what we can do," said Chelf. "Our defense will pin their ears back and get after their quarterback. On offense we will probably try some new things and just see what we can get done."

How good is Chelf? Well he is making runs at all kinds of career and single season records in Enid football. The senior has thrown more passes (521) and completed more of them (270) than any quarterback in Enid history. His 19 touchdown passes this season is tied for the best ever. He's just 13 completions off the record for completions in a season, 81 passing yards off the single-season record and 101 passing yards off the career record.

Chelf has been committed to the Golden Hurricane for some time, but the interest in Oklahoma State remains. He also says he has heard some from Kansas State.

"A little, but not a lot," said Chelf. "With Oklahoma State I have really been impressed with what they have done with their offense and what they are doing with the facilities. I talk to Coach (Gunter) Brewer a lot, and it really comes down to see if they offer or not. We'll just have to see what happens there."

Chelf is very focused for the next couple of weeks, not on recruiting but on Union and Jenks with the idea that an upset either week would knock state football fans on their ear and a win the second week would put Enid is great position to go as far as they want in the 6A playoffs.
