At this point
Since he's an offensive linemen, though, it was important that he get to know his future coach, Dennis Wagner. Today he got a better chance of doing that. "Yeah, coach Wagner was here today," Russell said. "It was a good visit. He's a pretty funny guy."
You could probably consider the visit a pleasure trip of sorts, but Russell had some things on his mind. Specifically the offensive line, who is leaving and who is coming back and of those, who does he have to beat out to get some time of his own on the field.
To that end, Okung said that Wagner answered some pretty key questions. "Coach Wagner said that they were looking at me as tackle and two tackles they have are graduating and of the two freshman tackles they have used in the last couple of games, one of them will probably move inside," Russell said. "I think there's a good chance for someone to get out there if they are willing to do what it takes."
With the in-home from coach
Wagner, Okung has become not just familiar with
Okung said that he didn't have any favorites right now, but was definitely taking visits to those schools and after that he'd make his decision.
As for the in-home with Wagner, he's studied and learned as much as he thinks he needs to know about the big red. "They have answered every question I have and I know they have been really honest with me," Okung said. "That's let me learn a bunch about them and about the stuff that I care about when I get to college."
"It's just a matter of taking my other visits and seeing how everyone compares. After that I think I will have a good idea of where I want to go."
