XAVIER LAWSON-KENNEDY, DT, 6-3, 305, 4.88, DUNCANVILLE, TEXAS:
JH: Update us on your season thus far?
XLK: "We have qualified for the playoffs and are currently 7-2 on the year. I am having a good season. I don't have my statistics, but I am playing well."
JH: Are you getting double-teamed on every play?
XLK: "I got triple-teamed on a pass recently. That was strange, but I was able to beat it. It was strange to have three guys blocking me."
JH: Are you enjoying the national attention?
XLK: "I think that it is real good and now I think I am getting greedy, because I like it now. I am enjoying all the national attention."
JH: Have you set any recruiting visits at this time?
XLK: "I have not set any visits at this time. I am getting close, but probably not within the next week or so."
JH: What do you think of Oklahoma at this time?
XLK: "Everybody is still in it, because I am still very open. Oklahoma will be in the running. They have always been one of my favorite teams. I am trying to focus on the playoffs and will really get into recruiting in the next couple of weeks."
