Recruiting: Porter Ready For The Summer

Defensive back Tre'Vante Porter of Midwest City (Carl Albert), Okla., is happy with being a part of another successful track season at Carl Albert. The Titans added more than several medals in track at the Class 5A meet under the guidance of Hall of Fame track coach Tex Rollins, including the 4X100 relay team which Porter ran on. The Titans took home the silver in that relay.

"I'm doing real good," said Porter in a quick update Wednesday evening after he had been studying for a block test. School ends at Carl Albert on Thursday and the final exams are being taken.

"It never hurts to add to success," added Porter in reference to the track season. "I was on that 4X100 relay team and I ran the 100 (meters)."

Porter said he is excited about school being out for the summer and his plans are to get ready for next football season. He has an interview Thursday for a summer job.

"I also want to go visit some schools, like I'm planning on going to Texas Tech to check out the campus," said Porter. "My mom and I are planning on going up to Stillwater (Oklahoma State) next week."

OSU was the first school to offer Porter and he has stayed close to the Cowboys and his recruiting coach, OSU associate head coach Joe DeForest. Porter is also good friends with former Carl Albert football and track teammate Daytawion Lowe, who will be a freshman cornerback starting this summer at OSU.

Besides Oklahoma State, Porter has offers from Arizona, Texas Tech, Nebraska, and Kansas State.

Porter earned honorable mention All-State and was second team All-Big City last season with 94 total tackles and four interceptions. He has a best clocking in the forty of 4.4 flat and he has a 250-bench press max and a 360 max on the squat. His vertical is 36 inches and his academics are solid with no problem toward qualifying for college.

Porter has said he would like to announce his decision toward the end of the summer and before his senior season begins in September.

Porter and his Titan teammates will be a little busy the first few weeks of the summer. Carl Albert head coach Gary Rose held off this week on spring football with so many players coming straight out of track and baseball, which Carl Albert won the state championship for the second season in a row. Rose wanted to give all of those athletes a break before spring football which will start next week with practices from 9-11 a.m.
