RECRUITING: Bennett can't wait to get to Norman

DE commit Corey Bennett says he can't wait to get to OU after seeing the campus for the first time.


JH: How did your visit go to OU?

CB: "It was great, because all the players and coaches made it feel like I was home. I didn't feel that I was that far from home the whole weekend and I just had a great time."

JH: I know you have been committed to OU for sometime and it doesn't sound like you will change your mind?

CB: "Oh yeah. Nothing can change my mind."

JH: Who was your host?

CB: "Alonzo Dotson was my host and he was real cool. We went to a couple of parties and went to a couple of restaurants and ate and stuff. Alonzo, along with all the coaches, took me on a tour of the facilities and Josh Heupel was there as well. That was the first time that I have really seen the facilities and they were very nice. They were the nicest facilities that I have every seen. I can't wait to get up there and take advantage of them."

JH: Did you try to help recruit Roland Martin and Emmanuel Dunbar a little bit?

CB: "Those guys are real cool and they are some solid players. The whole time I was talking to Roland along with Mo (Dampeer) we were talking to him about OU. I know that he is real interested and I think he is going to be at OU. Emmanuel was very quiet and to himself."

JH: "Everytime we talk you seem more excited about OU?

CB: "Yeah, my visit made me want to stay at OU. I can't wait to get started."

JH: How big are you now?

CB: "I got measured and up there and I am 6-4, 265. However, with all the eating that I was doing up there I think I put on a few pounds."
