That's right, he ran a 4.59 electronic-timed 40 at Oklahoma's camp at 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds. In three games this season, Dibbles has 28 tackles and six quarterback sacks. Inside the classroom, he's a full qualifier with a 3.85 GPA and 880 SAT score.

Which schools have been calling you this month: Anyone you can think of. Texas, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Florida State, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Miami. There's a bunch of them.

Which of those schools have sent you a scholarship offer in the mail: All the ones I just named have offered me.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: My top three right now are Texas, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame. But those are the only three schools I've visited. I won't sign with a school I have not visited, so if it were tomorrow, I'd pick one of those three. But I have a lot of time to check out other schools, then pick the best one for me.

Have you scheduled any visits yet: No sir.

Talk about Miami: Well, so far, so good I guess. I really haven't been following them much. I'm doing research on the schools I haven't visited yet to determine where I might take my other official visits, and Miami is among them.

Personally, it sounds like we're a longshot for this standout defensive lineman. If he visits and it goes really well, we might have a chance, but he's been to Texas and Oklahoma a lot and it just seems like they're the front-runners. But signing day is a long ways away, so stay tuned.
