At least 24 regular participants on the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour had signed letters-of-intent to play collegiate golf, including two at Oklahoma State, one at Oklahoma and two at the University of Tulsa.

OJGT Executive Director Morri Rose called it one of the best classes in Oklahoma history and said he expects more than 30 golfers to sign by the end of the week.
"I think for our population, Oklahoma is producing some of the best junior golf in the nation," Rose said. "We have six of the top 100 junior golfers in the nation."

Even though many of the universities have yet to release their signings list, Rose said he had confirmed with either the player or the player’s parents that the following signings have occurred and the list is accurate.

Oklahoma State added two golfers from powerhouse Edmond North as both Hayden Wood and Nick Heinen inked letters-of-intent. Both players committed to OSU as juniors under former coach Mike McGraw and kept their commitments through the coaching change to Alan Bratton.

Also on that same Edmond North team, Pierce Griffin signed with the University of Oklahoma and Sam Humphreys signed with the University of Tulsa.
Oklahoma State also signed Sam Stevens of Wichita, heir to a long line of golfing champions and a frequent competitor in Oklahoma in OJGT events.

Edmond, as usual, produced a bevy of talent, including three golfers from Edmond Memorial. Jacob Bishop signed with Wichita State, Trent Evans with Kansas State and Ty Tamura with Oklahoma Christian. Cody Troutman of Edmond Santa Fe signed with the University of Central Oklahoma and teammate Drew Ison with Drake.

Emma Allen of three-time defending Class 6A champion Tulsa Union is signing with Oklahoma City University to play golf on Saturday. Her teammate Marla Souvanassing is going to the University of Central Oklahoma.

Among Allen’s accolades: She is the second ranked senior in state, won the 2013 Oklahoma’s Best tournament on Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour, took fourth place in the Class 6A state tournament, finished second in Class 6A as a freshman and sophomore.

"We’re really happy to have Emma joining us. She’s one of the top high-school players in the state. I expect her to make an immediate impact on our team next fall." said OCU coach Marty McCauley.

Souvannasing won the Class 6A state tournament and was named the All-Metro Girls Golfer of the Year by the Tulsa World.
