Recruiting: Is Madu California dreamin?

Norman, Okla. running back Mossis Madu talks about his visit to UCLA.

Mossis Madu, RB, 6-0, 190, 4.48, NORMAN, OK:

JH: How was your visit to UCLA?


MM: "It was real nice. The campus was so big and beautiful. It just blew me away. I also saw some of Los Angeles because our hotel was in LA."

JH: What did you learn about UCLA that you didn't know before?

MM: "I learned a lot because I have never been there before. I learned a lot about their academics and I learned about their school. I saw where the movie ‘Old School' was shot and I just had a great time. I learned they are sponsored by Adidas and they get all kinds of stuff from them. They have a real class program and they really take care of their players. I had a chance to watch practice and I really enjoyed their practice."

JH: What are your thoughts on recruiting now that you have visited OU and UCLA?

MM: "I think I am done. OU, UCLA and TCU were my top three schools. Now, I have to sit down with my parents and right down the good and bad things about each school. Before, I thought I would make a decision late in January, but now I think I am going to make it by Christmas."

JH: How would you rank the schools right now?

MM: "It is so tough. They are all up there right by each other. I have been thinking about it hard, but I don't see how I can have any one school on top."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

MM: "Oklahoma ranks right up there with any other school that I have visited. They are at the top of my lost. When I go on visits, I compare them to Oklahoma. Oklahoma is still up there."

JH: Are all the schools recruiting you as a running back?

MM: "Yes, everybody is recruiting me as a running back."
