Richetti Jones, DE, 6-3, 225, DALLAS (LINCOLN HS), TEXAS:

JH: How is your summer going?


RJ: "I have just been doing the same old, same old just trying to get ready for the season. I am so ready for the season that it is unreal."

JH: Have you taken any unofficial visits recently?

RJ: "I took an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State. My childhood friend (Adarius Thompson) was taking his unofficial visit to OSU. He is going to play football at OSU. He said he didn't want to go up there by himself and that there wasn't going to be anybody there on campus, so he wanted me go to up there. So, I went up there and had a good time."

JH: How many times have you been to OSU?

RJ: "I have been up there three or four times."

JH: Does the fact that you have been to OSU so much mean anything about them?

RJ: "Oh yeah. They are in my top five. It is just easier for me to travel up to Oklahoma State because I have some friends who have just graduated from OSU. I have some that graduated in '05 and '06. I know Byron Eaton, Gary Flowers and Adrian Riley. They are basketball players."

JH: Are you going to take any other unofficial visits this summer?

RJ: "I don't know yet. I think I am going to take a trip to OU and Texas A&M."

JH: What is the latest in recruiting as far as schools that you like?

RJ: "It is still the same four or five. I still like Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and maybe Florida."

JH: How are workouts going?

RJ: "I am getting there and they are going pretty well."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

RJ: "It is still the same. I loved Oklahoma when I went down there. I just can't wait until the season starts so that I can go see them play and see them in action. Now that I know a number of their players, I can put a face with a number and know who I am watching."

JH: Do you have a leader at this point?

RJ: "I don't have a leader. I am just looking out for my top five."
