Derrick Williams, WR, 6-0, 193, 4.4, GREENBELT, MARYLAND:
JH: I haven't had a chance to talk to you since you got back from Oklahoma, so let me start by asking how did your visit go to Norman?
DW: "It was really a great visit. I can see why they develop some great athletes because they have some great coaches and they have great facilities. It was as great visit."
JH: Before the visit did you actually have an idea what the Oklahoma program or campus looked like?
DW: "I had never been on the Oklahoma campus, and going to their campus showed me how beautiful the campus was. I also learned how well the team got along. Coach Stoops is also a very personable coach who gets along with his players very well."
JH: What did you learn about the football team that you didn't know before?
DW: "Everything that coaches have been telling me, I saw that I could be able to do it. They have been talking to me about Mark Clayton's position and I learned that everything they have been telling me is the truth."
JH: Did your visit to OU enhance the possibilities of OU signing you?
DW: "Oklahoma is a great program, but the visit didn't really matter as much. Oklahoma is so out there and they are such a well-known program, that many other people will just go there to go there. My family and I are going to sit down and talk about the visit and all my visits and come to a decision soon."
JH: How was your visit to Texas?
DW: "My visit to Texas was awesome too. I know you probably get tired of me saying that all of my visits are awesome. The Texas players were nice to me, as they were at Oklahoma. When I was at Texas everybody was telling me not to go to Oklahoma, and when I was at Oklahoma everybody was telling me not to go to Texas. That is just the way it is between those two schools."
JH: Are there a lot of similarities between the two schools?
DW: "I think there are a lot of similarities between the two programs. Both schools have players from both states. My decision is going to come down to where I feel the most comfortable. I really haven't had much time to think about it yet. I just got home and I haven't even had time to talk to my family yet."
JH: Aren't you going to New York City this weekend for a national award?
DW: "I am one of the finalists for the Army National Player of the Year. I go to New York on Friday. I think it is a high school Heisman award or something like that."
