JH: Why OU?
"I loved their great linebacker position and me and Coach (Brent) Venables had a great relationship over the recruiting process."
JH: Isn't it true that you have been a heavy lean to OU for some time?
"Yes sir, It is a small school that is what I am looking for as well."
JH: Where do you fit into their defense?
"I am a speed guy who likes to hit and I don't have to come out on passing downs. I play the weakside linebacker spot and I can really run and make plays."
