Recruiting: May Says 'It Was A Great Trip'

Cornerback Andrae May was one of the first players to commit to Oklahoma State, and he finally got a chance to make his official visit this past weekend. caught up with the Galena Park (North Shore), Texas standout Sunday afternoon as he was driving home from Stillwater.

"It went real good," said the 6-foot-1, 170-pound May, who committed to the Cowboys in June. "I like the facilities, I like the team, I like the coaches and the way they do things, I like the way practice is run ... I just like everything and I can see myself going there."

North Shore finished the season with a 9-1 record, losing to Hightower 28-21 in the Class 5A playoffs. The Mustangs, like many Houston area teams, had an unusual season. They opened the season with a pair of victories but their next three games were cancelled because of Hurricane Ike battering the Texas coast in September.

May had a productive season for the Mustangs with four interceptions, 10 passes broken up and 20 tackles.

He spent much of his time this past weekend, when not with current Cowboy Adrian Richards (his host on the trip), talking with the Cowboy defensive coaches. "I met all the coaches but I spent most of my time with Coach (Joe) DeForest and Coach (Jason) Jones," Mays said. "Part of the tour was to meet with your position coach so me and Coach Jones got together and he showed me how their cornerbacks play and the techniques they teach."

May said the trip just confirms what he's know since last June – that he wants to be a Cowboy. He says he plans to sign in February.

"It was a great trip," he said.
