Recruiting: Arkansas WR still listing OU

Warren, Ark. wide receiver Jarius Wright talks about his interest in Oklahoma.

JARIUS WRIGHT, WR, 5'11, 170, 4.4, WARREN, ARKANSAS:

JH: What do you have going this spring?

JW: "I am running track and playing baseball."

JH: So you are doing both at the same time?

JW: "Yes sir."

JH: How difficult is that?

JW: "It is real difficult considering I always go to baseball practice and I don't get a chance to practice track that much. I don't think it affects me to much, but I would be a lot better if I had a chance to practice track."

JH: What position are you playing, and what are you hitting?

JW: "I play leftfield and I am the lead-off batter. I am doing well. I don't know what my batting average is, but I know I am hitting pretty well."

JH: What are you running in track and how fast do you run it?

JW: "I am running the 100 meter dash. I am not sure of my time, but I have won a lot of races."

JH: With your busy schedule this spring, have you been able to visit any schools unofficially for football?

JW: "I went to Fayetteville Saturday and looked at Arkansas. I had a good time and the visit went well."

JH: What are your thoughts on the Arkansas program?

JW: "It is pretty good. I like the campus, but it was cold and I didn't like that about the visit. I know I live in Arkansas, but it is colder there."

JH: What schools are you still considering at this point?

JW: "I am still considering everybody. I am still considering Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Tulsa,  Minnesota, Tennessee, Arkansas and Ole Miss. All those schools have offered me. Right now I am keeping an open mind and I don't have a leader."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

JW: "So far I like them a lot, but I really don't know too much about them. But what I do know about them I like. I hope to get down to Norman sometime soon."
