Longview defensive tackle Zay Henderson and receiver Dorian Leonard met Oklahoma offensive coordinator Jay Norvell when he visited the high school Friday.
The juniors received scholarship offers from the Sooners on Sunday night, Lobos coach John King said.
Henderson and Leonard became Longview's first class of 2014 prospects to receive offers. The duo is scheduled to visit OU for its Feb. 2 junior day along with Longview safeties Stephan Maxey and Travin Howard.
Henderson is also receiving interest from Texas Tech, SMU and multiple Southland Conference schools. The 6-foot-3, 292-pounder turned heads by taking home Defensive Line Most Valuable Player honors at the Next Level Athlete Showcase last weekend in Pasadena.
Henderson had 48 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and two sacks as a junior, helping spearhead the Lobos' strong defensive line.
Leonard is also receiving interest from SMU and Southland programs. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder caught 21 passes for 444 yards and four touchdowns last season, serving as Longview's top deep threat.
