LAWRENCE PINSON, LB, 6'2, 235, 4.6, JENKS, OKLAHOMA:
JH: How did you play in your first playoff game?
LP: I played both linebacker and fullback against Stillwater. I only played two quarters and I had 13 tackles.
JH: Were you disappointed that you didn't get to make your Nebraska trip?
LP: Yeah, I was a little disappointed, but not all that much really. I kind of have an interest in them, but it's not major.
JH: Last time we talked you mentioned that you were trying to get a hold of OU to tell them that you wanted to commit, what happened with that?
LP: I talked to Coach (Brent) Venables and he didn't put any pressure on me, but I did tell him that is where I wanted to be. They told me that they would prefer that I don't take any visits and I am considering that. I didn't really commit to them, but I am very, very close. I am a little worried about Coach (Mike) Stoops and Coach Venables leaving. I am hearing all kinds of rumors, but I don't know if they are true or not.
OU is where I want to go and I am very close to committing to them. I really don't know if I will take any visits or not.
