RECRUITING: Bomar likes OU's chances in Sugar Bowl

Grand Prairie, Texas QB Rhett Bomar talks about Adrian Peterson, baseball and the Sugar Bowl.

SAN ANTONIO—Grand Prairie, Texas quarterback Rhett Bomar talks about Adrian Peterson's commitment, his upcoming baseball season and the Sugar Bowl during an exclusive interview after today's U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game. What are your thoughts on Adrian Peterson's commitment to Oklahoma today?

Bomar: "He's a great player. I'm really looking forward to playing with him." When does baseball start for you?

Bomar: "We're in off-season right now. When I get back home, I get to start hitting since my (right) hand is healed. We start practicing in the first of February and start playing in March." How does your hand feel? Is it completely healed?

Bomar: "It feels good. I think it's recovered. Earlier in the week, I hit it on a helmet and the top of my hand got a little bruised, but it's gone away." What stood out to you most about your experience here in San Antonio at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game?

Bomar: "There are a bunch of great players here this week and a bunch of them probably are or are already going to Oklahoma. That's pretty exciting." Of the uncommitted Oklahoma recruits, which of them are you the most interested in possibly seeing as a Sooner?

Bomar: "I'd probably say Zach Miller and Big Herm(an) (Johnson). Zach is a nice guy. I talked to him all week, but I didn't really push him about Oklahoma. I think he likes them (Oklahoma) a lot, so we'll see how it goes." Last question, who is going to win the Sugar Bowl?

Bomar: "Oklahoma 21-17. It'll be a low-scoring game, because I think OU's defense is pissed off."
