JH: Did you catch the ball much?

LC: "I had two catches for 30 yards."

JH: Did you feel like you played well?

LC: "I felt like I could have done a lot better."

JH: Did you go to any college games last weekend?

LC: "I haven't seen any college games yet. I want to go to the Texas/Ohio State game, but I don't think I am going to be able to get there. I want to go to the Oklahoma State/OU game."

JH: What is the latest in recruiting with you?

LC: "I am considering Miami, Tennessee, OU, Oklahoma State and Florida. I really don't have a favorite."

JH: The last time we talked you had OU and Tennessee at the top of your list. Is that no longer true?

LC: "I still like Tennessee and OU a lot."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

LC: "I like Oklahoma a lot. I just got off the phone with coach Stoops a couple of minutes a go. We just talked about my opportunity at Oklahoma and we talked about when I could get up for a game. I haven't set an official visit with them or anybody yet. I will visit Oklahoma at some point."

JH: What are your thoughts on the Oklahoma program?

LC: "They have a good tradition up there, and I like Coach Stoops a lot. I think they are going to have a good team. I think they would have been a lot better with Rhett Bomar at quarterback, but they have to move on."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma State?

LC: "They had a good game last week. I think they are an up and coming program. The facilities they are building are nice."

JH: And Tennessee?

LC: "I visited up there and it was real nice. The coaches were real friendly and I kind of felt at home there."

JH: Who do you play this weekend?

LC: "We play Gilmer this weekend. This is going to be the game of the week in Texas."
