BRIAN ZIMPEL, OL, 6Ã3, 310, 5.0, BROKEN ARROW, OK:
JH: You were very impressive at the OU camp, did they offer you a scholarship when youreturned home?
BZ: Yes, they did offer me a scholarship and I have never been happier in my life. I havenÃt officially committed to OU yet, but I want to go there, I can tell you that. I am going to go back there on Saturday at the recruit only day camp and I will talk things over with Coach Bob Stoops. I would say that I will be officially committed to OU after Saturday.
JH: What did you think of the camp?
BZ: It was fun! It was better this year. Before, we didnÃt do a whole lot. This year we got a lot more reps and the competition was tremendous. There were some good guys there and some big guys.I had to work hard to get anything accomplished.
JH: Who were the top players that you went up against?
BZ: Stephen Tremain from Norman had great feet and was tough to block. Eddie Montaya of Tulsa Washington was big and strong and tough to move. However, the best player I went against was Carl Pendleton. He used his hands well and was a great athlete.
JH: Have you always wanted to go to OU, or did this camp turn you toward the Sooners?
BZ: I have pretty much wanted to go to OU for the past couple of years. OU was my leader before this camp, especially since I really started thinking about college. I also like Colorado and Michigan, but OU has always been my favorite.
