RECRUITING: Wisconsin DE in no rush

Wisconsin defensive end Rhyan Anderson talks recruiting and about his interest in the Sooners.


JH: What kind of season are you having thus far?

RA: "We are doing pretty good so far. We are 3-0. I guess they have been one-sided as we haven't had a close game yet."

JH: How have you played thus far?

RA: "I am doing pretty good. I don't know what the stats are at, but I say I am doing pretty well. I don't have any sacks at this time, because teams are running away from me. They are rolling the quarterback away from me and it is impossible for me to get sacks that way. I am also getting double and triple teamed and teams are cutting me quite a bit. The attention that is coming my way has opened up things for my teammates and they are making a ton of plays. My coaches tell me that I am such a good player that I shouldn't worry about sacks, especially when we are winning."

JH: Are you going both ways?

RA: "I am just playing on defense at defensive end. Sometimes I play on both sides, but like this week I will play just on the left side."

JH: "How many coaches have you heard from?

RA: "I am hearing from coaches every night it seems like. I have heard from 15 coaches or so."

JH: What schools are you still interested in?

RA: "I am still talking to Miami, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Southern California. I really don't have any favorites. I am trying to stay open-minded. I usually just say the first schools that come to my mind when I do interviews."

JH: Have you seen Oklahoma on television this year? And if so, what do you think of their defense?

RA: "Oklahoma is playing great and I really like their style of play on defense. They always get a lot of pressure and seem to get a lot of sacks."

JH: When are you going to set up your visits?

RA: "I don't plan on setting up any visits until my season is over."
