Nobles inks Letter of Intent with Oklahoma State
Eleven days after closing out his Jenks football career with a 6A-1 state championship, Logan Nobles officially began his career at Oklahoma State by signing his Letter of Intent Wednesday to wear orange and black at the collegiate level.
“My dreams have now become reality,” Nobles said. “I didn’t know where I was going to play, but I am glad I am going to play for OSU. Everyone wants to go play ball at the next level, it’s just an amazing thing I get to go through in my life.”
The Jenks High School senior was the starting left tackle for the Trojans and according to his coaches, was a leader both on and off the field.
“As a sophomore, we saw so many good things from Logan,” Jenks head coach Keith Riggs said. “We knew he was going to fill out one of these days. He was truly just a tall, skinny kid at that time, but we were impressed with his leadership qualities, his character, integrity, and his desire to help others. Those are the things that have helped him grow into that leadership role that was so important for us this year. Those are the things that are going to help him be successful down the road. We are super excited for him. He has worked really hard on the physical aspects in becoming a bigger, more physical football player, but I think those off-the-field qualities are the ones that are really special.”
The 6’7” 276-pound Nobles was one of the leaders of a 2020 Jenks offensive line that controlled the line of scrimmage against its opponents.
“I have always thought of Logan as a pretty special kid,” Jenks offensive line coach Justin Glenn said. “Not only on the athletic side of the things, but he has great leadership skills, and he is a great young man. When something needs to be done like picking up the locker room after a game, even as a senior leader, he did everything by example. He did everything that he was supposed to do and did it consistently throughout his career at Jenks. I appreciate everything he has done for the program.”
Nobles said when he visited Oklahoma State, it felt like he was home.
“It felt like another Jenks. I know I have a whole bunch of family and friends, who will be a great support system. The coaches up there are going to push me every single day and turn me into a better player, a better person, and a better student. I am just going to go there and excel in everything I can.”
Riggs said he can’t wait to see what Nobles can accomplish at the next level.
“It is a big step from high school football to major college football, so it will be a challenge for him, but I think he has the skillset to contribute down the road once he gets familiar with the program and what his responsibilities are.”
Glenn echoed Riggs’ comments on Nobles’ future.
“Oklahoma State is a phenomenal program. They will put a lot of weight on him and he will have a chance to play somewhere just because of the work ethic he has. He will do a great job and have an opportunity to be special.”
Nobles added that he is looking forward to fine tuning his craft and going against some of the best players in the country at the major college level and Jenks has prepared him the challenge.
“Jenks has showed me how to persevere through adversity. The coaches here have pushed me day-in and day-out, have taught me the right stuff. They have showed me how to watch film, how to lift the right way, how to move my body in the right way, showed me how to get into an uncomfortable position and to then be comfortable and take care of what needs to be done.”
