TONY UGOH, OL, 6'6, 280, 5.0 HOUSTON WESTFIELD, TEXAS:
JH: How is your season going?
TU: We are still playing in the playoffs. We went 9-1 during the regular season and we play our first playoff game this Saturday against A&M Consolidated. I think I have graded out at 85 percent on the year and I am averaging about six pancake blocks a game. I had 12 pancake blocks in our last game.
JH: What are the key factors in recruiting for you?
TU: What is important to me is to find a school that has a good academic background and a place where I feel comfortable at. Every school that is recruiting me has a good football program. I am not looking for any one specific thing in the football program and again I just want to feel comfortable in that program. Playing early is not a necessity, because if I am not ready the coaches will let me know. However, if I am good enough, I will be playing. It is pretty simple really. I will work hard to get ready and if it works out then great.
JH: Have you set up any visits at this time?
TU: I haven't really set up any visits. I haven't had any time to think about that. I don't want to think about it until after the playoffs are over. I am still considering basically all of the schools that are interested in me. UCLA, LSU, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, Purdue, Arkansas, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech are the schools that I am looking at. I know it is unusual to still have this many schools this late in the recruiting process, but I am enjoying my senior year and that is the way I want to go about it.
JH: You were in Norman this summer, what are your thoughts on OU?
TU: I went to Oklahoma's camp and they are still at the top of my list. I really like the fact the academic campus was close together and they have a good academic program. The coaches and players were very nice and the people around town were very nice. I enjoyed the campus life and felt very comfortable there.
JH: It sounds like you don't mind leaving the state?
TU: I don't mind leaving the state, but staying in-state is a possible as well.
Recruiting: Ugoh still focusing on season
