Lennon Creer, RB, 6-0, 190, 4.5, TATUM, TEXAS:

JH: How is your summer going?

LC: "It is going pretty well. I am working out and they are going well. That is about all I have going this summer."

JH: What have your goals been this summer?

LC: "I wanted to get faster and get stronger. I believe I have, as I have my bench up to 315."

JH: Have you taken any unofficial visits this summer?

LC: "I have been to Oklahoma State. It was OK, it was nice. The coaches were very friendly. I would have a good opportunity to play early there, but they had a bad season last year so I need to watch and see how they do this year."

JH: Are you close to making a decision?

LC: "Yes sir, I am. I have one more visit to take to Tennessee and then I am going to come back and make my decision."

JH: Who has your decision come down to?

LC: "I am still considering Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Tennessee and Miami. I am going to get a see OU, OSU and Tennessee, but I am not going to be able to visit Miami."

JH: As of today, who is your leader?

LC: "No, I don't have a leader."

JH: Tell me about your thoughts about the four contenders?

LC: "I like Oklahoma a lot. I went up there for the spring game and it was a great atmosphere. I like the coaches and the players a lot. At Oklahoma State, it was nice up there and they are rebuilding a lot of stuff. I think it is going to be really nice in the future. I just know a little bit about Tennessee and won't know a lot about them until I visit there. The same goes with Miami, but they put out a lot of people in the NFL and that's impressive."

JH: What are some of the key points that you will consider in making your decision?

LC: "Sending players to the NFL is important to me, and how they are developing people for the next level. The depth chart is important to me. I don't want to go someplace where they have a bunch of running backs stacked up ready to play. How a team runs the football is also important to me because I want to go somewhere that they at least run the ball."

JH: Do you really have an idea where you are going, but you are not saying?

LC: "Yes, I have an idea where I am going. But it is not totally decided yet. I am just trying to think things through."

JH: What school do you feel the most comfortable at?

LC: "So far I have felt the most comfortable at OU and OSU, but my visit to Tennessee may change that. I have an idea where I am going to go, but we will see what happens after I get back from Tennessee next week. Once I get back I will probably take a week or so and make a decision where I want to go to school."
