RECRUITING: Oghobaase talks about Duke visit

Alief, Texas defensive tackle Vince Oghobaase update.

Vince Oghobaase, DT, 6-6, 300, 5.2, ALIEF (HASTINGS HS), TEXAS:

JH: Have you taken your visit to Duke yet?

VO: "I just back from Duke and I go to Miami this weekend."

JH: What did you think about your visit to Duke?

VO: "It was a great place. They had great coaches, cool players and the campus was beautiful. It was one of the best visits that I have taken."

JH: What do you think about the Duke Football program?

VO: "Obviously, they have been down for a few years, but I believe they can turn it around with the signing of a few players. I think I can go in there and make a difference. They told me that they were leading at halftime and didn't hang on in those games because they were short a few players. They feel if they just sign a few players that they can really become a factor."

JH: You said that Duke had the best engineering program going into the visit. Did you leave Duke feeling the same way?

VO: "They have a great mechanical engineering program. I stress this and really believe this that if you get a degree from Duke you are set for life."

JH: You are visiting Miami this weekend. As you go into that visit what are your thoughts on their program?

VO: "I went down there in the summer and I know what they have to offer me both from a football and academic standpoint. When I leave there I want to see what kind of personal feeling that I have about the players. I want to see how I am going to mesh with the people, players and the community."

JH: Are you thinking about the Oklahoma visit at all, which is your last visit in a couple of weeks?

VO: "I take those visits week-by-week. That is still a week away, so I will be thinking about then. I saw Coach Shipp today and that went real well. He is coming by my house in just a few minutes and I am looking forward to talking to him."
