Recruiting: Louisiana lineman set for visit

New Orleans offensive lineman Alex Williams talks about his upcoming visit to Norman.

Alex Williams, OL, 6-5, 300, NEW ORLEANS (O. PERRY WALKER), LOUISIANA:

JH: Did you take any visits last weekend?

AW: "No, I just stayed at home. I go on my first visit tomorrow to Oklahoma."

JH: What are you looking forward to or expecting on your first visit to Oklahoma?

AW: "I really don"t even know because I have never been on a visit. I just want to see if I fit in out there."

JH: Have you talked to Oklahoma this week?

AW: "Coach (Kevin) Sumlin came by my house tonight."

JH: How did the visit go and what did you talk about?

AW: "He as just asking me if I was ready to come out there and if I was looking forward to it. I told him I am ready for anything and I am open-minded about taking this visit."

JH: Do you have your other visits set up?

AW: "I am going to Michigan State the first week of January, Nebraska the 12th of January and then Florida State on the 19th of January."

JH: Are you going to take a fifth visit?

AW: "I don"t know, I can"t say right now. I mean, yeah, maybe."

JH: Do you still consider yourself a commitment to Ole Miss?

AW: "Yeah, I am still committed to Ole Miss."

JH: You are committed, but you are still talking visits so would you consider you just a soft commitment to Ole Miss?

AW: "Yeah, I am weighing my options to see what is out there for me. When I committed to Ole Miss, they were the only school that was interested in me so I jumped on their offer. I still like Ole Miss, but many more schools have now offered me so I am shopping around trying to see what else is available."

JH: Are you excited about finally getting your visit schedule underway?

AW: "Yeah, no doubt. I have been to Ole Miss, but that is just six miles away. We just drove there and I went there and looked around the campus and just checked out the place. This will be the first time I have been on a plane and the first time I have traveled at all, so I am looking forward to that. I am nervous about getting on a plane for the first time, but I need to get it over with because it is going to happen some time."
