MIAMI — Three Oklahoma Coaches Association all-staters are among the 49 signees announced, Wednesday, Feb. 7, by Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.
Recruited walk-ons are included on the list.
“We feel very strong that this is some of the best talent that Oklahoma has to offer,” Norse head coach Zach Allen said.
Among the Oklahoma signees are all-staters Brandon Williams, a 5-10, 190-pound defensive back from Beggs; Ryan Peoples, a 6-0, 190-pound quarterback from Norman North, Corbin Daniels, a 6-1, 165-pound defensive back from Tulsa Holland Hall, and Rylan McQuarters, a 5-10, 190-pound wide receiver from Tulsa Washington.
McQuarters is the son of former Oklahoma State standout R.W. McQuarters, who went on to play 11 seasons in the National Football League.
Peoples was the only quarterback on the list of signees.
He missed his junior season because of the transfer rule, but passed for 3,085 yards and 31 touchdowns, rushed for three touchdowns and earned The Oklahoman's Big All-City Offensive Player of the Year honors this past season.
Numbers at other positions included 12 defensive backs, seven offensive linemen, seven wide receivers, seven defensive linemen, five linebackers, four defensive ends, three tight ends, three running backs, and one quarterback.
Thirty different Oklahoma schools are represented, topped by Midwest City with five signees.
Others include Tulsa Holland Hall, Norman North and Beggs, three; Owasso, Norman, Enid, Yukon, Putnam City, Tulsa Central, Lawton and Union, two each, and Piedmont, Tulsa Kelley, Davis, Broken Arrow, McAlester, Prague, Edmond Santa Fe, Choctaw, Broken Bow, Millwood, Sulphur, Tulsa Washington, Elgin, Dewey, Putnam City West, Lawton Eisenhower, Coweta and Jenks one each.
Wednesday was the second — and traditional — National Signing Day for football.
NEO is coming off a 2017 season that saw it win its first Southwest Junior College Football Conference title since 2002 and earn its first bowl invitation since 2012.
