RECRUITING: America's top WR sets visit to OU

Louisiana receiver Early Doucet names his top five and talks about his upcoming visits.

EARLY DOUCET, WR, 6'1, 205, 4.4, SAINT MARTINVILLE, LOUISIANA (SAINT MARTINVILLE HS):

JH: How is your season going? Are you getting healthy?

ED: "We are 4-1 on the year, but playing pretty well. I have been slowed down a little bit by a hamstring injury, but it is getting back to full strength. This past weekend I scored four touchdowns, two rushing, one receiving and one throwing. I played quarterback and wide receiver this weekend. I usually just play quarterback, but this year they are moving me around a little bit. I haven't been doing that much this year, because of my injury, but now that it is getting better I think my coaches will move me around again. This Friday I think I will be back returning punts and kickoffs."

JH: Are you still giving the hamstring special attention?

ED: "I still wrap the hamstring, but I only wear a slight wrap on the leg. The leg is getting better and better all the time and I feel very close to normal for me."

JH: Has the fact that you are rated a top 10 player in the country made you a marked man in high school football in Louisiana?

ED: "As the year went by I think my reputation has grown, especially after my first two years in high school. I think now everybody is out to get me, but I have always worked hard and I am out to prove they can't. I think my national publicity makes them want to come after me more."

JH: Have you set any more visits?

ED: "I will be Florida State this weekend and then next weekend I will be at Oklahoma. I was going to Oklahoma the weekend of the Oklahoma State game, but I have decided to move it up for the Missouri game."

JH: How is recruiting going?

ED: "It is going pretty good. I have narrowed it down to five schools and the phone calls have been cut back because of that, and that is good. I think those five schools are great teams and they are who I am really interested in. I think things are going pretty good. I am going to take visits to Miami, Florida State, Florida, OU and LSU and pick from those five."
