Recruiting: The latest news and notes

Are the Sooners back in the hunt for New Orleans, La. Tyler Stradford? See inside for the latest including notes on Donald Stephenson's Thursday morning decision, Sam Proctor and Frank Alexander.

I talked with New Orleans wide receiver Tyler Stradford Wednesday night, and it appears he is back on the fence again.

Stradford said that Oklahoma's Kevin Sumlin came by and visited with him and it was a good visit. He says OU stills wants to sign him and that made him feel pretty good.

Stradford doesn't say much, but this was the jest of our conversation.

JH: Has anything changed in your recruiting status right now?

TS: "I really don't know right now."

JH: At this point are you up in the air with your decision?

TS: "Yeah, I would say that."

JH: Have you talked to Oklahoma recently?

TS: "Yes, and it went alright."

JH: Are you still committed to Southern Miss?

TS: "I am wide open right now."

JH: Are you taking any other visits or is your choice down to OU and Soutern Miss.

TS: "That is it. I am not taking any other visits."

JH: Is this going to be a tough decision for you.

TS: "Yes, definitely."
