Recruiting: Sooner juco commit taking visits?

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M junior college defensive end talks about his commitment status and OU.

Tim Johnson, DE, 6-5, 255, 4.7, NEO JUCO, OK:

JH: Talk about your injury?

TJ: "I broke my ankle and fractured my fibula. I did it in a practice about two or three days before the game. I was going for a tackle, but somebody else was going for the tackle at the same time and he hit my leg on the dive. It hurt badly. When I reached down and grabbed my ankle I could fell a bone and move it around, so I knew something was wrong. I had hurt my ankle before, but this was 10 times the pain.

JH: When did you have surgery?

TJ: "I had surgery two days after the injury. I have had a cast on since, and I have to wear it for four more weeks. I ware a cast that runs all the way up to my knee."

JH: How frustrating is this injury for you?

TJ: "It is real frustrating, because I had worked real hard this spring and I was going to play this year. My ankle and my leg really hack me off."

JH: Did you talk to OU about the injury?

TJ: "They told me that they are not going shy away because of that injury. They said that I still had a scholarship and that they wanted me to be a Sooner."
JH: Are you still committed to Oklahoma?
JH: Since you taking visits to other schools would you say that you are still a solid commitment to OU?
JH: Is Oklahoma still the place where you want to play your D-1 football?
