Skyline players to attend Texas-OU game

Three-star defensive tackle Kerrick Huggins (Dallas/Skyline) said he will attend Saturday’s Texas-Oklahoma battle at the Cotton Bowl. Three-star wide receiver and Skyline teammate Ra’Shaad Samples is expected to join him.

While both athletes are expected to be in attendance, neither one is going with the intent to shake things up in the recruiting world. Huggins, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound tackle, is still a solid commit to Texas A&M. Samples, a 5-11, 170-pound receiver, is still solid with his commitment to Oklahoma State.

“We’re going to see old Skyline players going against each other,” said Huggins, who then followed up with, “Ain’t no switching Gig’Em.”

Huggins and Samples -- and potentially several other current Skyline players -- will be at the Cotton Bowl cheering on Texas receiver Mike Davis and linebacker Peter Jinkens and Oklahoma defensive back Joe Powell and linebackers Corey Nelson and Frank Shannon.
