Baker Mayield, the Big 12 Conference ofensive freshman of the year, has been accepted at Oklahoma and will attend classes when the spring semester begins. The former Texas Tech quarterback relayed the news to SoonerScoop.com on Wednesday. A source later conirmed Mayield’s intentions to the Tulsa World. Mayield would enter a large quarterback group. Five scholarship players already are expected in fall camp, including Sugar Bowl Most Outstanding Player Trevor Knight. The others are Blake Bell and Kendal Thompson, who also took snaps in 2013, redshirt freshman Cody Thomas and Edmond Santa Fe’s Justice Hansen, who is expected to sign a letter of intent next month. Last Friday, the day after the Sooners defeated Alabama 4531, coach Bob Stoops told a small group of reporters that he hadn’t

OU FOOTBALL had conversations with potential quarterback transfers. “I don’t know where that comes from. I haven’t had any dialogue with anybody. Nor has any of my coaches. That all comes from you guys and somebody else,” he said Mayield hopes to receive an NCAA ruling as early as Friday that would exempt him from transfer rules that include Texas Tech preventing his release to OU. Mayield guided the Red Raiders to a 5-0 start before sufering a knee injury. The freshman also started the inal three regularseason games before announcing his decision to depart prior to Tech’s 37-23 victory over Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl. Mayield connected on 218 of 340 passes for 2,315 yards, with 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Eric Bailey 918-581-8391 [email protected]

NSU unveils Hall of Fame inductees: Northeastern State

Director of Athletics Tony Duckworth announced the 2014 NSU Athletics Hall of Fame inductees: former AD Gil Cloud, Shelbie Allison Glover (golf), Micah Lomas (football), Alli Toomer Moore (golf) and Wes Pitcock (basketball). The ive will be enshrined at the Hall of Fame Banquet at 11 a.m. Feb. 15. — FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

A CNN report this week targeted the literacy gap between student-athletes and the general student population at 21 schools, including Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The CNN investigation found public universities where many student-athletes in basketball and football programs could only read up to an eighth-grade level. Data from schools was obtained through open-record requests, but was a small sample. Only 21 of 37 schools responded to open records requests for information by the news network. A portion of the report was based on data compiled by OU professor Gerald Gurney and University of North Carolina adviser Mary Willingham. Much of the focus was on the diference in reading levels between studentathletes and the general student body. Willingham’s focus group was 183 North Carolina football and basketball players. From 2004-12, she discovered 60 percent read fourth- and eighth-grade levels and 8-10 percent reading below the third-grade level. Gurney, who was a former senior associate athletics director (1993-2011) at OU, looked at 109 specially admitted athletes between 2007-09. Now an OU professor, he discovered that 19.2 percent scored below a 17 on the ACT or below 820 on the SAT.

According to collegedata.com, the average OU student gets a 26 composite ACT. CNN asked the school for SAT and ACT entrance exam scores of incoming football and basketball players between 2007-12, but didn’t receive a response. At OSU, 13.2 percent (48 of 365 scores obtained) fell below the threshold for being college literate (400 on the SAT critical reading or writing test; 16 on the ACT). CNN reported that between 2007-12, there were 81 student athletes playing football or men’s basketball who were “alternatively admitted” to OSU, meaning they would not otherwise have been admitted on grades alone. “The NCAA change in admittance requirements has allowed lower test scores for some athletes,” OSU spokesman Gary Shutt said in response to the report. “Certainly we would like to see higher scores. But standardized tests are not the only gauge of a student athlete’s potential. Work ethic and background play a huge role. “We provide the support to help many of these students become successful. While you point out that student-athlete scores are lower that the student body, the graduate rates for our athletes are in the same range as the total student body. That again points to the work ethic of student athletes.” Eric Bailey 918-581-8391 [email protected]

SK A ly isher how they learned the skill, and about one time in 10, they’ll tell you they were on the stream one day and just igured something out. The rest of the time they know it because they learned it from someone else, and if it’s a really cool thing they probably learned it from a talented someone else. Tulsa has one of those talented someones coming to Sapulpa on Saturday. Davy Wotton, Kelly a worldBostian class ly isherman Outdoors and Ozark kelly.bostian isheries @tulsaworld.com guide will 918-581-8357 hold court 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Fourth Annual Fly Tying Extravaganza, set for the Creek County Fairgrounds, just of the Turner Turnpike at the Kellyville exit. Experienced ly ishers likely recognize Wotton’s name and have read one of his books or seen one of his TV shows or DVDs. Wotton, a native of Wales, is bringing his expertise in wet ly techniques to the extravaganza Saturday. If you are not a ly isherman and the term “wet ly” doesn’t mean much to you, don’t sweat it – a lot of anglers don’t know much about it either. In exciting terms, it is a method of ishing that, Wotton says unequivocally, allows anglers to catch more ish. “If you do it right,” he said. “Ninety percent of the time you will because the skills will enable you to present lies in a diferent manner, one that most ish are not used to seeing. It also gives you greater versatility in what you’re able to do.” In basic terms, using a wet ly it is a form of lyishing that harkens back to its roots in the United Kingdom 200 years ago and involves use of traditional winged wet lies. Wet ly ishing is a far cry from the most typical form of ly ishing seen on Oklahoma streams, which has an angler dead-drifting a nymph or two below a loating ly. True wet ly ishing typically involves use of rods

Fourth Annual Fly Tying Extravaganza When: 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Saturday

Where: Creek County Fairgrounds, Sapulpa (just of the Turner Turnpike at the Kellyville exit) What: Fly ishing and ly tying demonstrations and workshops, bargains, shootin’ the bull and even some barbecue. Featured guest: Davy Wotton, Ozarks guide and wet ly technique specialist that are 10 to 11 feet long and casting lines with leaders 16 feet long or more that may have wet lies on three or more droppers. This style of ishing faded from popularity in the United States as anglers turned to dry lies and that was considered the pure form. The short-version history, according to Wotton, was the brook trout of the eastern U.S. and locally available materials were simply a far cry from the UK’s brown trout streams. Wet lies have again gained popularity, thanks in part to Wotton. Anglers enjoy the beauty of the lies, the long history behind the techniques and discovering patterns work today that worked for anglers 200 years ago. And work quite well, according to Wotton. Wotton began ly-ishing as a lad on his family farm. An elderly gentleman used to ish a stream on their property and he watched him. “I was fascinated by it,” he said. The man eventually set up the young Wotton with bamboo rod, reel, silk line and some wet lies and a future inluence was born. By the time Wotton was out of grade school he was tying lies for local shops. By the time he moved to Flippin, Ark., in the 1990s he was world renowned and was owner and founder of the largest dubbing manufacturing plant in the world, SLF – now owned by Wapsi. But even he started with a little help. Wotton and others from a four-state area will be sharing their knowledge, skills and trading and selling goods Saturday.
