RECRUITING: Top RB still high on OU

Palestine, Texas running back Adrian Peterson talks about his trip to A&M and his interest in Oklahoma


JH: How does it make you feel that has ranked you the number one running back in the country and the number two player overall in the country?

AP: "It is great to be rated like that. I am trying to stay level-headed, but I believe it is a great honor to be ranked so high."

JH: Does it bother you at all that you weren't ranked number one overall?

AP: "No sir, that doesn't bother me at all. I am honored to be ranked so high in the first place."

JH: You took an unofficial visit to Texas A&M today, so what did you think of your trip to College Station?

AP: "I just went up there to talk to Coach Fobbs a little bit. I also watched the players go through some of their workouts. Coach Fran was on vacation, so I didn't get a chance to see or talk to him."

JH: Did the visit change your perception of Texas A&M at all?

AP: "It made me like them a little more, because I saw how hard they were working. It made me feel pretty good about them, because all of them worked hard and showed me that they are determined to win."

JH: What are your thoughts on recruiting at this point?

AP: "I haven't been thinking about it that much, so nothing has really changed."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

AP: "I still like Oklahoma a great deal as well, and they are still up there at the top."

JH: Are the same schools still involved?

AP: "I would say that Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Miami and Texas are my top teams."

JH: Are you going to take any more unofficial visits?

AP: "I don't plan on making any other unofficial visits, but I hope that we do qualify for nationals in track, because they will are going to be run in Miami. If we can get there then I would have a chance to look around see what they are all about."
