The MIAA landed another pair who will become rivals now — Sequoyah’s Tanner Sheets to NSU and Mvhayv Locust to UCO.
Sheets, a 6-0, 260 four-year starter with the Indians, chose the RiverHawks with an eye toward staying close to home.
“I like the coaching staff a lot,” said Sheets. “They’re going to work me around and see where I’m best fit. I’ll play anywhere they need me.”
Locust is, by most accounts, a raw prospect, but a player with imposing size and intriguing potential. Long since coveted by the coaching staff at UCO, the 6-5, 255 tackle found a comfortable landing spot with the Bronchos.
“It wasn't too far away from where I live,” said Locust. “I have family in Norman and they can come watch me play.”
Missing from Sequoyah’s signing day festivities was wide receiver/defensive back Niko Hammer, who will reportedly walk-on at Oklahoma State.
