Recruiting: Henry says he's a Sooner

Schertz, Texas athlete and Oklahoma commitment James Henry talks about his visit to Norman.

James Henry, RB, 6-2, 190, 4.5, SCHERTZ (CLEMENS HS), TEXAS:

OUIn: Did you enjoy your visit yesterday?


JH: "I enjoyed it. It was fun. I got to hang out with Adrian Peterson and that was great."

OUIn: AD came ready to play didn't he?

JH: "Without a doubt. He came out and played great in that second half."

OUIn: Were you watching the running backs or did you just try to enjoy the game?

JH: "Something like that, because I was pretty excited. There were a bunch of recruits there and we are having a great time at the game."

OUIn: So you had a great time?

JH: "I was just there having fun. I have been up there before and I knew a lot about the program already."

OUIn: Considering the fact that you were already committed, did you get a different feeling than maybe a few of the other recruits on the visit?

JH: "They (OU) already made me feel like I was part of the team. I got off the bus with them and did all the things expect play in the game that the team did. Fans were already yelling at me to have a good game and things, and that gave me a great feeling. I was already trying to help them recruit Clarence Bailey and Aleric Mullins. I was telling Clarence to get up here and clear the way for us. The fans were showing me some love as well. I was walking around with a boot on my foot and the fans knew who I was. I had so many people wish me good luck with my injury. I can tell they are pulling for me. It was fun being committed and being on my official visit."

OUIn: Did the re-inforce your commitment to Oklahoma?

JH: Yes, sir. I am a Sooner and already looking forward to being on the team next year."
