Midwest City, Okla., three-star tight end Bradley Dedeaux was always one of the top players in Oklahoma. But an impressive senior season has really sent his stock through the roof. With written offers already on the table from Kansas, Oklahoma State, SMU, Tulsa and several others, Dedeaux is starting to make even more noise with some new programs.
One of those programs is the Oklahoma Sooners.
Dedeaux said he talked this past week with OU tight end coach Kevin Sumlin and he assured the 6-foot-2, 238-pounder that an offer is on the way.
"He told me not to take any other visits and commit or anything because an offer is definitely coming," Dedeaux said. "The offer is coming as soon as I get the results of the ACT that I just took. I was told by that I'd get that score back in mid-November. So as soon as I get the score in, then I'll get that OU offer.
"I've gotten to know coach Sumlin pretty good. He's a really good guy."
Dedeaux said he's also getting some new attention from Texas Tech and assistant coach Seth Littrell.
"Tech is coming on real hard," Dedeaux said. "They want me and LaRon Moore to come down for a visit on November 5. I haven't seen the offer in writing, so I don't really count it as an offer, but I like what Tech is saying."
As far as the other schools, Dedeaux said he's keeping an open mind and won't rush to set other visits up at this time. He wants to wait until the season is over before he schedules anything official, and for Midwest City hopefully that won't be for quite time some.
Dedeaux played a key role in a victory this past Friday when he scored twice on touchdown receptions. They play Putnam City High on Friday and the winner is going to make it to the playoffs. So what about Dedeaux's big game last week again?

It was like a 50-yarder. I also had another touchdown catch, but it was called back on a penalty."Here to view this Link.
