RECRUITING: California LB staying close to home?

California linebacker Lance Broadus says OU could be the leader if he leaves California


JH: I understand your day starts pretty early every day, is that right?

LB: I get up around five oÕclock every morning, because I live about an hour-and-a-half from school. I go to school at Taft, because my dad is a bus driver at Taft and he wanted me to go to school where he was working. I love it and it has worked out great for me.

JH: When do you play your first game?

LB: We play on the 13th and take on Crenshaw. They are always good, but we are pretty good this year. We have a lot of players that return from last year who can really play.

JH: College coaches just started calling again, so who did you hear from?

LB: Probably about seven, two coaches from USC and one from Fresno, Oklahoma, Arizona and Nebraska.

JH: Have you set any visits at this time?

LB: I have not set any visits. I really donÕt have a favorite team. I am still looking hard at Arizona, USC, Fresno State, Oregon, Oklahoma and Nebraska. I have heard a lot about the Stoops brothers and my coach has told me some good things about Coach Venables as well.

JH: Are you still trying to decide if you want to leave the West Coast or not?

LB: I am probably going to stay on the West Coast, but I am not really sure at this time. I am not sure I want to go to far away from home, but with Oklahoma and Nebraska I am still considering it. They are both great programs and if I had to chose one of the two I would pick Oklahoma right now. Whether to go that far away from home is a decision I need to talk over with my parents. I might visit Oklahoma just to see how I would like it.
