Jon Cooper, OL, 6-3, 273, 4.95, FT. COLLINS, COLORADO:
JH: Last night I thought you were going to commit, but you held back until today. Why?
JC: "I was just kind of delaying everything last night because I have felt that way for some time. It just felt so good that I just didn't want to miss out on that opportunity."
JH: Did you finally get ahold of Coach Stoops?
JC: "I called Coach Wilson tonight, but I wasn't able to talk to coach Stoops. I believe that Coach Stoops talked to Coach Wilson, so he knows that I want to be a Sooner."
JH: You have liked Oklahoma for some time, so what was it that put you over the top?
JC: "The visit was great and that answered a lot of questions for me. That put me over the top and almost answered all my questions, but not all of them. So, I went and visited Oklahoma State. The whole time I was on that visit I was thinking about Oklahoma, and I knew that Oklahoma was where I wanted to play my college football. So, I did want to wait any longer."
JH: You are an inside player at either center or guard, but do you have a preference?
JC: "I don't mind which position that I play. I just started playing center this year and I really enjoyed it. But I like playing guard as well."
JH: Do you deep-snap?
JC: "A little bit, but not too much."
JH: Are you still taking your visit to Missouri?
JC: "No, I am not going to Missouri."
JH: Are you playing other sports or what?
JC: "I am just going to lift weights and get ready to come to OU in the summer."
