Recruiting: OU makes Louisiana DE's top three

The latest on Baton Rouge, La. defensive end Frank Alexander.

Frank Alexander, DE, 6-3, 241, BATON ROUGE (SOUTHERN LAB) LOUISIANA:

JH: How is going in recruiting?

FA: "My last visit was to Auburn. That has been it. That was a while back, and I have been to Oklahoma. Those are the only two visits that I have taken so far."

JH: What other visits have you set up?

FA: "I am probably going to take one to Miami. I will also probably go to LSU and Nebraska."

JH: Are you just looking to set up dates at this point?

FA: "Yeah, and I am not sure when I can go because of basketball in the month of January. I hope to be able to take visits in January, but my schedule is going to be very hectic in January."

JH: When was the last time you talked to Oklahoma?

FA: "Coach Bob Stoops was in my house last Thursday. He was talking to my mom and my dad. It was neat to get to know him and stuff."

JH: How did that visit go with you?

FA: "It went well. My mom and dad enjoyed visiting with coach Stoops. I guess coach Stoops enjoyed himself too. He got to watch the basketball game before he came to the house. It was real nice."

JH: Was it fun playing in front of coach Stoops?

FA: "Yeah, it was fun. I just went out there and did my thing. I think I scored 35 points."

JH: Are you getting any more attention in basketball?

FA: "No, not really. I have been getting a few calls for basketball, but they haven't really talking to me that much. Most of them think I have already committed to Oklahoma. They thought I committed to Oklahoma. I don't know where they got that. I like Oklahoma, but I haven't committed to anybody yet."

JH: What are you thoughts on recruiting and possibly committing soon?

FA: "I am not trying to make any decisions right now. I am probably going to make my decision after I make all my visits. I am trying to wind the thing up."

JH: What are your thoughts on the Sooners as we talk tonight?

FA: "They are still high on my list. They are in my top three. Oklahoma has a nice program and are one of my favorite teams. That is how it is right now and how it is up there."

JH: Who are your top three?

FA: "Oklahoma, Auburn and LSU."
