RECRUITING: Maclin says verbal solid after visit

Kirkwood, Mo. receiver and Oklahoma commitment Jeremy Maclin talks about his visit to Norman.

Jeremy Maclin, WR, 6-0, 180, 4.4, KIRKWOOD, MISSOURI:

JH: What did your visit to Oklahoma this weekend do for you, especially since you have already committed?

JM: "What this visit did for me was pretty much set my commitment up in stone to Oklahoma. The atmosphere was fantastic. I have never been in a better atmosphere than what I experienced watching that game."

JH: What did you learn about Oklahoma that maybe you didn't know before the visit?

JM: "I learned that Oklahoma is just a great place to be. They have great fan support and they have a great program. I know they had a tough game yesterday, but they have a great tradition and the players are great."

JH: You have already told me that OU is recruiting you to play the slot, so did you watch the wide receivers in yesterday's game and try to visualize how you might fit into that offense?

JM: "I know they didn't have a great passing attack yesterday, but I definitely can see how I can fit into the offense and help them win games."

JH: Did your visit enhance your commitment to OU?

JM: "Pretty much, yes."

JH: Will this be the only visit that you take?

JM: "I have no idea."

JH: Are you still a solid commitment to OU?

JM: "Yes."

JH: How is your season going thus far?

JM: "We didn't play the first weekend, so this will be our first game this week. We play Marquette this week and we are ready to go."
