Brandon Braxton, OT, 6-7, 300, Youngstown, Ohio (Ursuline High School):
JH: Why did you chose Oklahoma?
BB: "I just decided that was the best place for me. I like the stability of the coaches. I also like the players and staff and I fit in down there. It just felt like the right place."
JH: In talking to you earlier in the week it seemed that you knew that you wanted to commit to OU?
BB: "Right. I knew this past weekend or at least on Monday that I was going to OU."
JH: How do you feel about the fact OU is thin at offensive tackle?
BB: "It is great. I like that fact."
JH: Is it going to be tough to leave home?
BB: "Sort of, but I am looking forward to it."
JH: When will you arrive in Norman?
BB: "Sometime this summer. But that is something that my family and I still want to talk through."
JH: What do you weigh right now?
BB: "Right now I am 6-6, 305 pounds."
JH: You picked OU over whom?
BB: "It was OU over LSU and Georgia."
JH: I know that you are at dinner right now, so what is for dinner for a big guy like you?
BB: "I am going to get some chicken strips at Red Lobster."
JH: Man, how come you are not getting lobster?
BB: "I am better off eating chicken strips, believe me."
