Recruiting: OU still in the mix for Morgan?

Dallas, Texas linebacker Mike Morgan update.

Mike Morgan, LB, 6-3, 185, 4.6, DALLAS (SKYLINE HS), TEXAS:

JH: How is your season going?

MM: "Right now we are 4-2 on the season. We are doing alright."

JH: How are you playing individually?

MM: "I am not doing as well as I can, in my opinion. I am struggling a little bit with the transition from defensive end to linebacker. I am trying hard and learning something each day. I don't know the stats, but I am doing OK."

JH: So it is a little more difficult to play linebacker?

MM: "Playing linebacker is pretty fun, but it is a little more confusing. You have a lot more people trying to block you and you have to cover more people. You have more people like the tackles and tight ends who are always trying to wall you off."

JH: Have you been to any college games lately?

MM: "I haven't been to any games for myself. I went to the SMU/Baylor game with one of my friends, but I was there for him more than anything."

JH: Have you enjoyed the college coaches calling you?

MM: "It has been OK. The only thing that bothers me is that sometimes coaches are long-winded. That is the only thing that gets to me is when a coach wants to take to me all night and I don't have the time."

JH: Have you set any visits up?

MM: "I have set up one with USC sometime in November."

JH: What schools are you still considering?

MM: "Right now I am not really sure. I am still considering Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Michigan, Florida State and Texas."

JH: What do you think about Oklahoma at this time?

MM: "They are having a season in transition with a new quarterback and everything. However, their defense is actually playing pretty well. I am still very interested in Oklahoma, and just because they are having a down year is not going to change that. They still have a great tradition and great coaches. If they beat Texas then they will be back on track."

JH: Do you have a leader in recruiting at this time?

MM: "I wouldn't say that I have a leader."
