One of the top wide receivers in the country has made his decision.

Desert Mountain wide receiver Mark Andrews announced Friday afternoon that he has verbally committed to Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Andrews had a total of 25 division I scholarship offers including USC, Notre Dame, Alabama, U of A and ASU but ultimately decided that Oklahoma was the place for him.

Him and the number one rated quarterback in the nation according to, Texas A&M commit Kyle Allen, are one of the most dynamic quarterback-receiver duos in the nation and expect to just build on that in 2013.

Furthermore, Andrews is a remarkable story because of what he has to manage while on the playing field and off.
