Sooners Illustrated takes a look at OU's crop of 2016 commits

Seven Oklahoma commits reach the second round of the state playoffs

Here is a quick look at how the Oklahoma Sooners’ current field of 2016 commits and their teams performed this week:

Jon-Michael Terry, LB, Victory Christian School – Terry and Co. cruised into the second round of the playoffs with a 37-6 victory against Verdigris on Friday night. It was the sixth game this season that Victory Christian allowed less than 10 points. Terry caught a 57-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.

Austin Kendall, QB, Cuthbertson High School – A four-game win streak to start the year was nice, but Cuthbertson picked up its fourth straight win Friday night, 49-40 against Erwin, to advance to the second round of the state playoffs. Kendall accounted for four touchdowns and threw for 280 yards.

Logan Roberson, OL, Harrah High School – Going on the road in the first round, Harrah came home with a 26-24 upset victory against Cache. The Panthers will play host to Poteau next week but got there with a big drive in the fourth quarter to seal the lead.

Chanse Sylvie, S, Calvary Baptist Academy – A first-round matchup with Dunham wasn’t going to stop Calvary Baptist, which cruised to a 50-7 victory. The sixth-seeded Calvary Baptist will face Notre Dame next week.

Parrish Cobb, CB, La Vega High School – Unblemished La Vega cruised past Canyon Lake, 42-10, to reach the second round of the playoffs. Cobb was a huge factor in the passing game as La Vega avenged a loss to Canyon Lake in the first round of last year’s playoffs.

Pernell Jefferson, LB, Warren Easton – In its first round match-up, Easton equaled its scoring total from a previous match-up with Belle Chasse – and even added an extra touchdown – in the 56-14 victory. After allowing a touchdown on the opening drive of the second quarter, Easton scored five unanswered touchdowns before the end of the half. Easton scored two defensive touchdowns in the second half.

Jordan Parker, DB, Pittsburg High School – In just two offensive plays, Pittsburg had a 14-point lead on the way to a 56-20 victory against Dougherty Valley. Pittsburg forced five turnovers on the first half on the way to a 35-6 halftime lead.

2017 quarterback commit – Chris Robison, QB, Mesquite Horn High School – In a 42-21 loss, Robison suffered a mild ankle sprain in the second quarter when he converted a fourth down. He went 10-for-16 for 98 yards in the first half. Robison, who finished 20-for-33 for 247 yards, tried to play in the second half but wasn’t able to lead Horn back.
