Porter likes the Sooners

In a recent article about Ryan Polite out of Desoto High School, Soonersillustrated talked about how much talent Desoto has at receiver going into the 2009 season. We were able to catch up with one of the talented Desoto wide receivers at the State 7v7 tournament in 2011 WR David Porter.

Watching Desoto's offense at the tournament it was easy to see they had a go to guy who got a first down when needed or seemed open every play. That player was 2011 WR David Porter. Porter who states he is 5-foot-11, and 185-pounds running a 4.5 forty was unstoppable the entire tournament it seemed. Porter is a quick slot receiver with good hands who is good at finding holes in the defense and did so often throughout the tournament. 

Porter talked about what it's like being one of the go to receivers in an offense with so much talent.

"It's pretty good I mean it makes you happy sometimes," Porter began. "You may drop one but it's fun."

With Porter going into his junior season next year he states he hasn't gotten any serious looks in the recruiting process at the moment. However, he has attended a few camps. 

"Not yet," Porter responded about receiving any looks in recruiting so far. "I've been to Oklahoma State and Baylor and that's really it this year." 

Porter states he doesn't have any favorites at the moment but does have interest in the Oklahoma Sooners.

"Yeah I'd go to Oklahoma," Porter stated. "I like the way they throw the ball, their routes and all their plays. I like them."

Even with a disappointing loss in the semifinals at the tournament Porter believes that the team improved from the overall experience.

"We got better as a team and bonded together. Our catching and passing has gotten better and our defense and coverage are all getting better," Porter said.

Desoto is expected to make a serious run at the Texas 5A state championship this season with so much talent across the board. Porter holds the same expectations for the team and for himself going into next season.

"Win State and try to get all state honors," Porter said.
