Recruiting: Houston safety likes OU, Texas

Houston safety Brodney Pool is still waiting for offers from Oklahoma and Texas

Position: Free Safety
Height: 6'3
Weight: 190
Speed: 4.5
Hometown: Houston, Texas
High School: Westbury High School

Pool's size and speed makes him a prototype free safety where he is a two-year starter. Blessed with tall, rangy ability, Pool is a very fluid athlete who can really run.

Pool is a very aggressive free safety as evident by his 114 tackles, three interceptions, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Pool has only played in one game this season because of a bruised knee, but he will return this weekend at both free safety and running back.

In the season opener, Pool rushed for 97 yards on 10 carries in one half of action. On defense, the linebackers were dominating the action, but he still came up with four tackles and one oskie in a half of action.

Pool admits he hasn't worked out in the weight room in a while and says he can bench 235 pounds. Pool was a starter in hoops last year, but may not play this season.

"Arizona State and SMU have offered and I am considering them," said Pool. "However, Texas and OU are recruiting me and I believe they will offer me soon. Kansas State and LSU are also considering me. I really like Oklahoma and Texas, and hope things work out soon."
