Dulles Duo Headed to Dallas for RRR

Recruiting coverage at SoonersIllustrated continues as we look to bring fans the latest in Oklahoma recruiting news. Today, we caught up with Sugar Land Dulles junior athletes Sheroid Evans and Jarrell Oliver.

After just celebrating a big district win, the Sugar Land (TX) Dulles looked solid in a 28-0 win over rival Austin. And while Vikings players Sheroid Evans and Jarrell Oliver want to take time enjoy the win, they are both making the road trip to one of the most anticipating games all year in the college football world.

"We (Evans and Oliver) are about to go to Dallas to catch the game," Evans said of the Red River Rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma. "We are getting ready and leaving tonight."

Both Evans (defensive back/wide receiver) and Oliver (running back) are both sought after juniors who will likely have quite a few options after this football season. 

In the brief conversation with Evans, he said that Texas was the team that invited him, but he is looking forward to a good game. In the Friday night win, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Evans had about 50 yards rushing on offense. Defensively, he recorded about five tackles and hauled in an interception.

This level of play has already brought about some interest, and one offer.

"I hearing from Oklahoma, Texas A&M, LSU, Texas Tech and Texas," Evans said. "UT has been contacting me a lot and invited me to the game. I have one offer right now from Baylor."

Riding alongside with Evans is the 5-foot-10, 190-pound back Oliver. In the Friday game, he was clearly the player to watch. Oliver averaged over 15 yards a carry and ended up with 202 yards on 13 carries and three touchdowns. His big scoring runs were from 84 and 51 yards out respectively. 

Oliver too is no sleeper to the recruiting world as well. Texas, New Mexico, Texas A&M, Colorado and Notre Dame are just a few of the schools inquiring now. 

Stay tuned to Sooners Illustrated as we follow up with Evans and Oliver, as well as other prospects who will be on hand for the Red River Rivalry.
