DONTE NICHOLSON, SS, MT. SAC J.C., CA:
JH: How is your season going?
DN: "Right now we are 3-4 and we need to win our next two games to get into the playoffs. Our offense is struggling right now, because we have a bunch of players hurt, but the defense is playing OK. I am playing pretty good I think as I have 67 tackles, with three caused fumbles, one fumble recovery and three quarterback sacks."
JH: How is recruiting going?
DN: "It's busy right now and more teams are beginning to call. However, Oklahoma is still on the top of my list right now."
JH: There was a recent story in the LA Times which stated that you had committed to USC. You have since come out and said that wasn't true. What happened there?
DN: "I was talking to USC and I was asked if I could see myself playing in their secondary and then they started saying that was great news. They took that to mean that I had committed to them. I guess there was a press guy at the practice and he overheard their conversation, or maybe they told him that I had committed or something. In reality, they had misunderstood what I was saying. I didn't say I had committed to them. I just said that I would see myself playing in their secondary. If they had asked me about Oklahoma I would have said the same thing about OU's secondary. I think it was another way of them to try to get some of the other schools to back off."
JH: At this point do you have a leader?
DN: "Oklahoma is still number one with me and after that I don't know. It is probably USC still at this point. It is going to be hard to beat Oklahoma. I am taking a visit to Arizona State (11-25). I am supposed to go to Washington this month (11-17), but I am not sure I am going to make it. I am having trouble working that visit into my schedule and I don't know if I am going to reschedule or not.
