Jan. 27, 2005 - Up to six Sulphur Springs football players are expected to sign college letters of intent Wednesday morning in a ceremony at the SSHS fieldhouse, said Wildcat head coach Brad Turner.
The ceremony will take place in the Wildcat Room of the fieldhouse on National Signing Day, the first day high school players can ink binding college scholarships.
Turner said Wildcats who are expected to sign on Wednesday are:
Keenan Clayton (6-3, 210), All-State free safety, with the University of Oklahoma. He will be the third SSHS player in the last two years to sign with a Division I college, and is the most high-profile. Oklahoma has played the last two years in the national championship game.
OU head coach Bob Stoops was scheduled to fly into the Sulphur Springs Municipal Airport at 11 a.m. today to meet with Clayton and his parents on the scholarship details. Clayton verbally committed to Oklahoma in the summer, but oral commitments are non-binding.
Rolaundo Wright (6-4, 195), the wide receiver who holds the SSHS career receiving records, is expected to sign with Arkansas Tech, a Division II university.
Tremayne Jones (6-2, 235), who played defensive end his senior year, is also expected to sign with Arkansas Tech.
Keelan Green (5-8, 145), wide receiver/kick returner in football and state qualifier in the 100-meter dash in track, has committed to a football/track scholarship with Northwest Missouri University, a Division II university, where he will join former teammate Kendall Wright.
Chris Berry (6-2, 350), a unanimous choice All-District offensive guard, is expected to sign with Trinity Valley Community College.
Keidric Duffey (5-10, 195), a three-year starter at linebacker for the Wildcats, may sign on Wednesday with either Southern Arkansas or Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
Two other players, defensive linemen Patrick Radney (5-11, 175) and Travis Edmond (5-9, 220) are both expected to play in college, but will probably not be signing on Wednesday.
Last year, the Wildcats also had six players ink college scholarships on National Signing Day including Div. I recruits Jonathan Lindley (Southern Methodist) and Jordan Jones (Northwestern State University in Louisiana).
