RECUITING: McCovey has OU among top five

Lakewood, Calif. linebacker Adrian McCovey update.

Adrian McCovey, LB, 6'3, 215, 4.6, LAKEWOOD, CALIFORNIA:

JH: How is your season going?

AM: "It is going fine. We are 6-0 on the season. We are currently ranked No. 1 in CIF Division one. At the beginning of the season we had somewhat of a close game, but since then we have won pretty easily."

JH: How are you playing individually?

AM: "I have about 50 tackles on the season. I have a couple of big hits, a couple of fumbles and about three sacks."

JH: What position are you playing currently on defense?

AM: "I am playing inside linebacker, and I think more colleges are recruiting me for inside linebacker as well."

JH: How is your recruiting going?

AM: "It is going fine. I am looking at Arizona, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Miami and Utah at this point."

JH: Do you have a leader at this time?

AM: "No, I don't have a leader. I am still trying to set up all my visits."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

AM: "I like Oklahoma a lot and I am looking forward to taking a visit down there to see how much I like it. I like how Oklahoma plays defense, and I know they have a great defense in Norman. I know they are sending players to the league from the defense and that they are getting better talent all the time. Oklahoma is recruiting me as a linebacker, but I am not sure which one."

JH: Since you don't have a leader at this point what are your major points of interest in recruiting?

AM: "I will be looking at how much playing time I can get early in my career, but it doesn't necessarily have to mean as a freshman. I will also be looking to see if I like the area and if I can fit in."
