As many as 38 participants on the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour have signed or are expected to sign letters of intent to play collegiate golf, a reflection of the strength of Oklahoma junior golf in general and the OJGT Tour in particular.
And for the first time, according to OJGT Director Morri Rose, more girls have received offers than boys.
The list below reflects only Oklahomans or OJGT members who signed or are expected to. For other collegiate signings by out state schools, please refer to the rest of our signing day coverage.
Several prominent members signed with in-state powers, including ShaeBug Scarberry of Purcell with the University of Tulsa, Faith Hopkins of Bartlesville with Oklahoma State and Logan McAllister of Oklahoma City with Oklahoma. They led a list of 18 golfers who will sign with Division I programs.
Also signing Wednesday were Brock Polhill of Edmond North with Wichita State and teammate Connor Wilson with Arkansas State.
Carson Griggs of Sand Springs signed with Denver and Austin Enzbrenner of Owasso signed with Missouri State.
Also signing with Missouri State was Faith Belmear of Owasso. Madison O’Dell of Collinsville signed with UCO, while Ashlynn Phipps of Broken Arrow signed with Oklahoma Wesleyan.
Natalie Gough and Rachel Eckert of Bixby are both expected to join coach Marty McCauley and the defending NAIA national champion Oklahoma City University Stars on Wednesday.
Owasso coach Corey Burd today said senior Jared Strathe, who had committed to Kansas State, was not likely to sign during the early signing period but still intends to go to KSU.
Below is a list of OJGT participants and other state players and their announced destinations. Not all have signed.
