RECRUITING: Louisiana LB close to decision

Louisiana LB Rufus Alexander says he will decide between OU and Texas and compares the two finalists

RUFUS ALEXANDER, LB, 6'2, 215, 4.45, BATON ROUGE CHRISTIAN LIFE, LOUISIANA:

JH: What did you think of your visit to OU?

"It was pretty nice and real good trip. I liked everything about it. The coaches were great and I got a chance to see that they have a real good coaching staff. Gayron Allen was my host and I got a chance to meet a number of the players."

JH: Did you commit to OU on your trip?

"No, but I am close to committing. It is down to Oklahoma and Texas at this point. I don't want to talk about a favorite until I announce my decision. I don't know when I am going to announce my decision and I don't want to put a timetable on it. I still need to pray about and be at peace with my decision."

JH: What is the difference between the two schools?

"Oklahoma really relies on their linebackers, while Texas relies on their defensive tackles."
