RECRUITING: OU still on top for Waco CB?

Waco, Texas cornerback Marcus Walker talks about his visit to Norman. Could he be close to committing?

MARCUS WALKER, CB, 5-11, 185, 4.5, WACO, TEXAS (WACO HS):

JH: How did your visit to OU go this weekend?

MW: "The visit went real well. I liked everything about it. I got to hang around with Tommie and Vince again and that was cool."

JH: Did you get to watch the Heisman?<.b>

MW: "That was real cool. Everybody was happy for them. Everybody said that I was already part of the team and that is what I liked about the visit the most. During that ceremony that made me feel like I was already part of the team."

JH: You have been to OU before, so did you learn anything new on your visit to OU this time?

MW: "I didn't really find out anything new, because Vince had already answered all my questions. The biggest thing for me was that I got to hang out with the other guys and other recruits and that was cool. I hung around Pierre Brown, Adrian Peterson and Rhett Bomar."

JH: Did Rhett ask you to join him at OU?

MW: "He was cool about everything. He wasn't trying to put any pressure on me and that is what I like about him. He has a real good understanding about what I am going through."

JH: OU has won so many awards this year and they are playing for a national championship, so does their success play into your decision or not?

MW: "That is a good point, but I don't know how much of a factor it really is. Every team that I am looking at has good players, especially at corner. I don't know if that makes any difference or not."

JH: Did you get out of the visit what you hope to get out of the visit?

MW: "It was everything I thought it was going to be and probably a little more. Everything was good and there were no negatives about the visit. I need to get home and things about this visit and really need to put some thought to it."

JH: Where does OU stand in your recruiting right now?

MW: "They are still up at the top. Let me put it this way, there is nobody doing better than them."

JH: Are you still planning on making a visit to LSU (1-16) or will you make a decision soon?

MW: "I can't really say when I am going to make a decision at this time, but I am going to think about it."
