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.
