Recruiting: Madu sees a different side of OU

Norman, Okla. running back Mossis Madu update.

Mossis Madu, 6-0, 190, 4.4 RB, NORMAN, OKLAHOMA:

JH: What did you think about your visit to OU this weekend?

MM: "I liked it a lot. People have said that I wouldn't like it because it was down the street, but being at OU is a lot different than just seeing OU from the outside. I got a chance to go into the Bud Wilkinson center, and I have never been in there before. Just seeing the facilities at OU and being on campus as a possible student was a lot different. I had a great time visiting with all the players and coaches at OU. They are all great people. I had a lot of fun on this visit."

JH: I saw your parents with you so what did they think?

MM: "They liked it a lot. We haven't talked a lot about it, but I know they liked it."

JH: You have been to OU several times, so what did you really pick up on the official visit?

MM: "I learned a lot more about the atmosphere of what it is like to be a football player at OU. I think it was great to get a feel of what it is like to be on the team and how it is really a good thing to be a student/athlete at OU."

JH: You watched a couple of practices so what did you think of the Sooners' workout?

MM: "The atmosphere at the practice was great. I think I enjoyed watching practice as much as anything. The players get a chance to have fun, but when it is time to get after it they do. In their blitz drill they work hard and the competition between the offense and defense is real intense but fun. They really compete against each other."

JH: What are your thoughts on recruiting now that you have visited Oklahoma?

MM: "I think just as highly about them as I have always thought about them. Now, I know it is a place where I know I can fit in, and where I know I can have a great time going to school."

JH: What is your visit schedule at this point?

MM: "Next weekend I have TCU and then the next weekend I have UCLA."

JH: Do you have a leader at this point?

MM: "I really don't know. That is why I really want to take these two visits and see how I feel about things. After those two visits, I am going to have a real good feel about what I want to do."
