Florida linebacker Vernon Smith says the Sooners lead as he prepares for his visit to Norman.


JH: How has your season gone thus far?

VS: "The season has been going pretty well for us. We are 1-1 right now. We are getting better, but we should do better also."

JH: How are you playing thus far?

VS: "I really never thought I could play this well. I don't mean to sound cocky, but I have been playing real well. It has been almost like I am on another level. I really don't know my stats, but I am really not concerned with them."

JH: Are you visiting OU this weekend?

VS: "My visit to OU this weekend will be my first official visit."

JH: What do you expect out of your visit to OU?

VS: "To be honest, I like OU a great deal and I just hope they make me feel at home. I hope they make me feel comfortable. I don't have any unreal expectations about what I am going to see in their school or football program, but I expect it will be great."

JH: Who are the other schools that you are considering visiting?

VS: "Kansas State, Pittsburgh, Miami and Ohio State. All four of those schools have offered me and I am thinking about visiting all four schools."

JH: Do you have a leader at this point?

VS: "It is still Oklahoma, and after that I am not sure how I would rank the schools."

JH: Is there a chance that you will commit this weekend or pretty early in the recruiting process?

VS: "Right now I really don't know, but I don't think so. I would like to see some other schools as well."
