Kevin Rogers, F, 6'8, 220, DALLAS, TEXAS (SOUTH OAK CLIFF HS):
JH: You just watched LA beat Detroit in overtime, so what did you think?
KR: "It was wild. I think Luke Walton should play a lot more than he does. He makes some really good decisions and he is a very good passer."
JH: How would you describe your game?
KR: "Have you ever watched Derrick Coleman when he was younger. That is how a lot of people describe me. I averaged 13.5 points and 13.4 rebounds last year. I play on the wing and in the post both, it really all depends on what kind of players the other team has."
JH: What did you think of your visit to OU today?
KR: "I really liked Oklahoma. I liked the facilities, coaching staff and the academic support that they have. They have great tutors and their support system is tremendous. I like the basketball program and Coach (Kelvin) Sampson said I could come in and have an immediate impact. He said that they needed a face up forward that could really shoot the ball from the top of the key and shoot the three a little bit. I can do those things and more."
JH: Did your visit enhance the Sooners chances to sign you?
KR: "It really did. It really helped a lot. Before the visit I was considering OU, but not as high. Now, I am considering OU a lot and they will be one of my final choices."
JH: Where is OU in your recruiting right now?
KR: "OU is among my top eight with Kansas, Arizona, UConn, North Carolina, Texas, Illinois and Georgia Tech. I don't have a leader at this point and I really don't know who I am going to visit officially."
JH: I understand that you and C.J. Miles want to play at the same college, is that true?
KR: "Yes sir. And all the schools I mentioned say they want us both."
