OSU Commitment Tracker: Playoffs

Dylan Harding

A handful of Oklahoma State commits and targets are still vying for state championship titles in both Texas and Oklahoma...

Thursday: Tulsa (Okla.) Union vs. Jenks (Okla.)
at Oklahoma State University @ 7:00 PM

OSU COMMITS: Dylan Harding
OSU TARGETS: Steven Parker

Two of the state's top teams will face off in Thursday's rivalry game for the championship; Jenks, last year's state champion, is on a 25-win streak, having defeated Union 20-16 in the second week of the season. However, Union rallied from a 0-2 start to the season, reaching the championship game after 11 consecutive wins.

For Jenks, keep an eye on the defensive back duo of Steven Parker and Dylan Harding. Parker, a four-star prospect, has a number of offers, including both Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. He's taken official visits to Texas A&M and Arkansas and has another planned for Ole Miss in January. Though he's being recruited as a safety, Parker has racked up 367 receiving yards on 22 catches and four touchdowns on offense this fall.

Harding is committed to Oklahoma State, having given his verbal to the Cowboys in July. Like Parker, Harding has also played on offense with 501 receiving yards for 16 catches and six touchdowns.

Others to watch: running back Jeffery Mead and tight end Carson Meier, both Oklahoma commits.

Saturday: Euless (Texas) Trinity vs. DeSoto (Texas)
at Allen ISD Stadium@ 4:00 PM

OSU COMMITS: Chris Lacy, Lemaefe Galea'i Jr.

Another big game, another match-up between Texas powerhouses. 13-0 DeSoto faces a two-loss Trinity team; the teams previously met up in the second game of the season, where DeSoto nabbed a 61-35 win. However, Trinity bounced back and enters this game on an eleven-game win streak.

DeSoto standout receiver Chris Lacy, a three-star prospect, had Oklahoma State high on his radar before committing to the Cowboys in August; Lacy, a 6-foot-3, 190-pounder, has stayed solid in his commitment to the Pokes. Lacy has 1132 receiving yards on 60 catches for 16 touchdowns, currently averaging just over 87 yards per game and smashing his junior stats by almost 1000 yards.

Other DeSoto players to watch: OU linebacker commit Vontre McQuinnie; quarterback Desmon White and corner Nick Orr, both TCU commits; Texas junior defensive tackle commit Brice English; sophomore quarterback Tristen Wallace, an early four-star prospect.

Euless Trinity offensive guard Lemaefe Galea'i Jr. is the other Oklahoma State commit playing in the game; the 6-foot-4, 317-pounder, a three-star athlete, committed to the Cowboys in July.

Other Trinity players to watch: defensive tackle Hafoka Olie; Houston linebacker commit Inoke Ngalo; Texas junior offensive line commit Patrick Vahe.

Saturday: Allen (Texas) vs. Houston (Texas) Westfield
at Round Rock Reeves Complex @ 2:00 PM

OSU TARGET: Greg Little

Allen, one of Texas' top programs, enters this game on a 24 win streak, but will find themselves playing another undefeated team, as both team's season records are 13-0.

Each team is stacked with talent, as both rosters contain athletes who will be playing big-time college football. Allen 2016 defensive line prospect Greg Little is the first five-star prospect in his class. Though only a sophomore, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound lineman holds a number of offers, including Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.

Other talent to watch in the game: linebacker Tay Evans and junior offensive lineman Bobby Evans, both Oklahoma commits; receiver Christian Sam and cornerback Chad Adams, Arizona State commits; defensive lineman Tejan Koroma, a BYU commit; cornerback Mayomi Olootu, a BYU commit; and four-star 2015 quarterback Kyler Murray, who holds a slew of big offers.

For Westfield, keep an eye on 2016 defensive tackle Ed Oliver, a four-star prospect with early Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and Houston offers; offensive lineman Marcus Oliver, who is headed to Houston.
