Addison Talks OU Visit

Sooners Illustrated brings you an interview with 2012 Scout.com Top 100 four-star athlete Bralon Addison out of Fort Bend Hightower High in Texas. Addison talks about his visit to Oklahoma this past weekend when he saw the Sooners take on the Florida State Seminoles.

Last Saturday the Oklahoma Sooners handed the Florida State Seminoles a whipping winning, 47-17. Oklahoma's offense put on a show and the defense looked much better than the first week of the season.

It was a good showing for the recruits who were in attendance which included Hightower's star Bralon Addison who says the visit made a "big push" in his recruitment.

"It was pretty cool you know I got to go down on the field," Addison said. "It was fun and I got to watch a good college football game. I enjoyed myself a lot. The coaches showed us around the locker room. I think the trip was a big push."

At the moment the Sooners coaching staff isn't sure if Addison is a receiver or a defensive back.

"They have been talking to me about both," Addison said when asked where OU is recruiting him to play.

"Sometime they talk to me about playing receiver and then sometimes they talk about defensive back. So, they talk about both. I think I am more of a slot guy, punt returner and kick returner. Where ever anyone decides to put me at I have to bust my butt."

First year secondary coach Willie Martinez is handling the recruitment of Addison for the Sooners.

"It's pretty good," Addison said about his relationship with Martinez. "We talk every now and then but with the season under way he has his own priorities to take care of. We talk when we can you know he talked to me at the game and we talked a little bit so it's pretty good."

The 5-foot-10 and 182-pound Addison claims two verbal offers from Nebraska and Houston but for now is solely focused on his junior season at Fort Bend Hightower.

"I haven't really been stressing about it," Addison said about the recruiting scene. "I think about it every now and then but I have just been focused on my high school season and doing what I can to help my team."

Addison plays quarterback for his team and so far has been doing a tremendous job through three games.

"For the most part I think I have done pretty well," Addison stated. "I have 611-yards passing, nine touchdowns and one interception. I know I could improve in some areas. We are sitting at two and one right now. We just had a tough loss. I think I can get better."

One thing is for sure if Addison needs help with anything when playing the quarterback position his best friend Matt Davis, the 2012 scout.com Top 100 four-Star quarterback out of Klein Forrest High School can sure help him.

Davis looks to be one of the, if not the best quarterback in the state for 2011. However, Davis tore his ACL in the first game of the season and Addison is now just trying to be there for his friend for support.

"It's been pretty tough you know because he is very competitive. We talk all the time and I just try to keep him calm and keep him on the positive side because I know how tough it is. Matt is a great athlete and a good quarterback and when you have that competitive nature you know you get down when you can't play the sport you love the most. I just try to be there for him and keep his head up high."

Playing together on the next level is definitely something Addison and Davis wouldn't mind doing. "We talk about going to the same school together all the time," Addison began. "We are going to take a lot of visits together when he gets healthy. We were actually going to try to make it to one of the games this weekend but his knee is still bothering him so we are just going to let him heal. We are going to take a lot of visits this summer and go to a lot of camps. You will see us together a lot during the summer."

With the 2012 recruiting scene so early in the process Addison doesn't have any favorites at the moment but that could change at any time.

"I couldn't really tell you right now," Addison said about having a favorite school.

"I'm just a big fan of college football so if they (offers) come in they come in. I just love college football so much and it has always been my dream to play college football. I don't have a top team just yet but I'm sure sooner or later I will."
