RECRUITING: Ohio guard looking at OU

Dayton, Ohio shooting guard Brandie Haskins will visit OU and has the Sooners in her top five

BRANDIE HOSKINS, SG, (5'10) DAYTON CHAMINADE JULIENE, OHIO:

Brandie is considered the 20th best player in the country and one of the most physical guards in the country. A tremendous scorer off the dribble, Hoskins can run the point in a pinch and is a serious defender. Just moments ago I had a chance to talk with for the first time about her recruiting process.

JH: You are rated as one of the top 20 players in the country, how does that make you feel?

BH: "It makes me feel very good, because I like people to feel good about my abilities?

JH: Describe your game.

BH: "For the most part I have good fundamentals, but I have good quickness and I am very good in the open floor. I play all three guard positions and I think I will be a two or three guard in college."

JH: What were your stats this past year?

BH: "In high school I averaged 21 points, five assists, six rebounds and three steals. In AAU ball this summer I averaged 25 points and seven assists per game.

JH: Are you starting your visits this weekend?

BH: "I am going to Maryland this weekend. I wanted to change it and go to OU this weekend, but they couldn't reschedule it so I have to continue on with my plans to visit Maryland this weekend. I will visit OU on the 26th of this month.

JH: Who are the five schools that you are interested in?

BH: "I like Oklahoma, Florida State, Maryland, Michigan State and Ohio State."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

BH: "I like the coaches a whole lot, but I haven't met the team yet. I will do that when I visit later this month. I knew they have a great program.
