RECRUITING: Visit didn't disappoint Crouch

Fayetteville, N.C. offensive lineman Curtis Crouch update talks about his visit to Norman to watch Oklahoma-Nebraska.

Curtis Crouch, OL, 6-6, 316, 5.2, FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA:

JH: How did your visit go to OU?


CC: "It went real well. I was impressed with how OU went about getting ready for the game. The fans were great and the was that OU prepares for a game was so impressive. The coaches were great and the players were very nice. I went to OU expecting to see the best and they certainly didn't disappoint me."

JH: What did you think of Norman and the OU campus?

CC: "The town and the campus were great. The people were very friendly. They were almost to friendly because everywhere we went people were nice to me and they didn't even know me. I wasn't used to that. The stadium was impressive because it is so big and there were a lot of people there."

JH: You seemed to really enjoy talking to the fans?

CC: "I rode the bus with the football team and the fans were so glad to see them when they got to the stadium. They even cheered me and that made me feel very special. It was a great feeling being a part of their gameday."

JH: Now that you have visited OU, how does that influence your thinking in your recruiting?

CC: "I was really impressed with OU and my visit certainly improved my thinking on Oklahoma. They told me that they are graduating their two starting senior offensive tackles and I think I would have a good chance to come out there and play early. I really like Oklahoma a lot. They are one of my leaders."

JH: Do you have one school that is a leader at this point?

CC: "I still don't have a leader or don't want to say that I have a leader. I am still considering the four schools and I have a visit set to Virginia Tech (11-27) at the end of this month. Even though OU was very impressive and I liked them a great deal, I need to also check out some other colleges. That was my first visit and I need to compare some other schools to them."

JH: What other schools are you still considering?

CC: I am still looking at Tennessee, Virginia Tech and NC State."
