Area athletes will make their collegiate intentions clear on Wednesday



Other prospects staying in-state to play FBS (previously Division I) football include Norman High’s Zac Uhles and North’s Redford Jones, both expected to sign with Tulsa.

In Southmoore’s Jackson Stallings, expected to sign with Yale, there is one future Ivy Leaguer.

Other Division I prospects include North’s Trent Laffoon, headed to Oral Roberts to play soccer, as well as two of his teammates, Ashton Bray and Curtis McCrae, headed to Central Arkansas.

Four area athletes have already signed Division I letters: NHS Bethany Cox is going to Lamar to play basketball; Southmoore’s Tre Edwards is going to Arkansas to play baseball; Southmoore’s Kayla Tucker is headed to Alabama State to play basketball; and Little Axe’s Andee Frazier, after pitching the Indians to three straight state championships, is headed to Missouri-Kansas City, to play softball.

Many more will fill football and volleyball and softball and wrestling and golf and track and field rosters below the Division I level, within the state and beyond.

Transcript Sports Writers Corbin Hosler and Michael Kinney contributed reporting to this story.


National signing day, the day most high school student athletes agree to scholarship agreements to play college sports, is Wednesday. More than 70 area athletes from 11 Transcript area high schools are expected to sign or have already signed on to become collegiate student athletes, and still more may have options on Wednesday. The following list may not include every future collegiate athlete in the area, but with the help of area coaches, athletic directors, principals and school secretaries, three days before the big day, The Transcript has compiled a list that may not be completely exhaustive, but is likely very close.
