OU recruiting roundup: Sept. 5

Sooners 2016 commits shine on the gridiron as OU opens the season

Oklahoma kicks off the season Saturday against Akron, but some of the Sooners 2016 commits are already a few weeks into the year. Here’s a quick look at how the Sooners’ current field of 2016 commits and their teams performed this week:

Jon-Michael Terry, LB, Victory Christian School – A talented Victory Christian opened the season with a dominating 47-8 performance against Kansas (Okla.).

Adrian Hardy, WR, Dekaney High School – After a standout performance in Week 1, Hardy was victimized in a 34-7 loss to The Woodlands. He totaled just 137 total yards (29 rushing and 108 passing) and turned over the ball three times – all three resulting in defensive touchdowns.

Austin Kendall, QB, Cuthbertson High School – Falling from the ranks of the unbeaten, Cuthbertson dropped a 49-14 contest to Pinecrest. Kendall threw three interceptions, two in the end zone, and still remains just shy of setting Union County records in career passing yards and career passing touchdowns.

Ryan Parker, WR, Tyler Junior College– Parker and Tyler face off against Blinn College, Dede Westbrook’s former stopping grounds, tonight at 7 p.m.

Logan Roberson, OL, Harrah High School – After losing the season opener to Seminole a year ago, Harrah got some revenge with a 27-21 victory.

Maurice Chandler, CB, NE Oklahoma A&M – Chandler helped slow down the Texas Institute A&T with a 53-23 victory Thursday night for the first victory of the season.

Chanse Sylvie, S, Calvary Baptist Academy – The Lions were beaten up front by Teurlings Academy in a 45-28 loss to open the season. Teurlings threw the ball just four times in the second half.

Bryce Youngquist, LB, Los Osos High School – Los Osos lost its second game in as many weeks to open the season Friday night. Heritage beat Los Osos, 35-14.

Parrish Cobb, CB, La Vega High School – It has been two wins in two weeks for La Vega, which dispatched Hutto, 27-21.

Pernell Jefferson, LB, Warren Easton – Jefferson helped stop Jesuit quarterback Peter Hontas on 4th-and-1 with a minute left to secure a 26-21 victory, a first for Warren Easton against Jesuit since 1964. Jesuit had won six-straight area games.

2017 Mesquite (Texas) Horn QB Chris Robison - Another five-touchdown outing as Robison went 20-of-30 passing for 372 yards and five touchdowns in a huge victory for the Jaguars.
