As OUInsider.com has told you for weeks stud linebacker Rufus Alexander (6'2, 215, 4.45) of Baton Rouge Christian Life, La. committed to the Sooners.
"I have decided to play my college football at OU."
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."
