RECRUITING: Florida DL sets visit

The latest on Miami, Fla. defensive lineman Kareem Brown

KAREEM BROWN, DL, MIAMI NORLAND, FLORIDA:

JH: You met Coach Bob Stoops for the first time tonight, how did it go?

"It was terrific and my family was very impressed. My family asked him a billion questions and he answered each one with great enthusiasm and answered each one really well."

JH: Was he different than you expected him to be?

"I told him that it was a pleasure to meet him. I told him I didn't expect a defensive coach to have such an outgoing personality. I thought he would be cocky being from Oklahoma, but he was really down to earth."

JH: Does the visit from Coach Stoops and Coach Shipp improve the Sooners chances with you?

I like what I see so far in Head Coach Bob Stoops and assistant coach Jackie Shipp. I will just have to see how the visits go, but so far I really like Coach Stoops and Shipp."

JH: You said yesterday that you really developed a good relationship with Coach Nick Saban on your visit to LSU. How does Coach Stoops compare to Coach Saban now that you have had a chance to really get to know the Sooner Head Coach.

"Coach Stoops is a little more verbal than Coach Saban. That is not necessarily good or bad, but it's a fact that Coach Stoops is a little more personable. I am really looking forward to my visit just to see how that goes and what the program is like up close. So far so good as far as Oklahoma."

JH: What is your schedule for your trip to OU?

I am flying straight from Florida to Oklahoma. I go to Florida on Friday and then fly out Sunday for Oklahoma. I will return home on Tuesday.
