Wood, Overton continue quest

Second week of OKPreps playoffs and a couple of OU commits are still alive.

Quite a few Oklahoma commits still looking to claim a state championship, but we’ll look at a couple of in-state commits continuing their quest for a gold ball.

McAlester at Del City, 7 p.m. Friday

McAlester ATH Dalton Wood: Now a three-star prospect, Wood hasn’t dropped off since committing to the Sooners nearly two months ago. For the season, Wood has rushed 124 times for 1,131 yards with 18 touchdowns, averaging 9.1 yards per carry. At quarterback, he has completed 106 of 168 passes for 1,547 yards with 24 touchdowns against just three interceptions. He continues to be the huge reason why McAlester is expected to contend for the title.

2016 Del City QB Terry Wilson: Wilson has had his share of ups and downs this season, but he has delivered when it has mattered most. Trailing 27-20 in the final minutes against top-seeded Edmond Deer Creek, Wilson led the Eagles to the touchdown and game-winning two-point conversion with 12 seconds remaining. Tough to top that as just a junior in high school.

Other names to watch: Del City ATH Davion Freeman (committed to Wyoming); 2016 Del City OL Walter Watson.

Jenks vs. Owasso, 7 p.m. Friday, Tulsa University

Jenks DL Marquise Overton: Doesn’t matter how many people are trying to block him, nobody has really been able to stop him. Despite being a defensive tackle, Overton has six sacks this season and has been a force in the middle. The OU commit has lived up to the billing this season and is a huge reason why the Trojans could be making another run at a state championship. Owasso defeated Jenks 7-6 in the first game of the regular season.

Other names to watch: 2016 Jenks DB Austin Quillen; Owasso DE Michael Anderson (committed to Tulsa); 2016 Owasso OL Brandon Scott.
