Mesquite, Texas defenisve end Cordero Moore says final decision could come Monday.

Cordero Moore, DE, 6-2, 260, 4.95, MESQUITE (HORN HS), TEXAS:

JH: What did you think of your visit to OU this weekend?

CM: "It was nice. It was an experience like none other."

JH: Was that your first visit?

CM: "Yes, it was my first visit. They are the No. 1 program in American, so can it get any better?"

JH: What impressed you the most about your visit to OU?

CM: "The coaches and players were great. I didn't think we were going to be able to get to know the coaches at all, but that wasn't like that at all. They were interacting with us all the time and they acted like they wanted to be around us. Coach Stoops did the same thing and that was just incredible. The coaches really liked hanging around with the players."

JH: What did you think about the football program itself?

CM: "I think they are the best in the country, and you can't get anybody that has what OU had."

JH: Did you commit to OU or come close to committing to OU?

CM: "Well, not this weekend. I think I will be committing to OU on Monday."

JH: Why are you waiting until Monday?

CM: "I am going to call Coach Stoops on Monday, so I can talk to him a little further. I need to ask him a couple more questions and then I will probably commit to him during that conversation."

JH: What other schools are you considering?

CM: I was considering Alabama, Arkansas and OU."

JH: You are being recruited as a defensive end aren't you?

JH: "Yes, sir, and I watched them a great deal. I think I will fit into the scheme of things very well at defensive end."
