Swanson Impressed by "Sooner Country"

Travis Swanson was yet another prospect who was in town visiting Oklahoma for the annual Red/White Spring Game. Sooners Illustrated caught up with him for his perceptions on the visit.

Travis Swanson, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive lineman from Kingwood High in Texas is one of the players that seems to be targeted for a possible scholarship offer from Oklahoma.

Saturday he was one of the prospects to be invited to the Spring Game, and he was clearly impressed by what he saw while he was in town.

"It was fun, it was great," Swanson began. "It is a beautiful place out there in Norman. It is a lovely campus."

"The facilities were amazing and the stadium was ginormous! The Barry Switzer center is awesome and has all of the hall of fame type of stuff in it. It is just an awesome place."

He got the chance to spend a good amount of one-on-one time with OU line coach James Patton.

"I talked with coach Patton for a little while," Swanson explained. "That is really the only coach I got to talk with. I talked with him for about 15-20 minutes."

"He said he has watched my film and he likes what he sees. The next part that I can do is come out to one of the camps where he can work one-on-one with me and see how I play and everything and evaluate me."

Swanson understands that there has not been that many offers extended by the OU staff and he is looking forward to coming to the camp and competing for a scholarship.

"He said that they have offered a few, but some of the ones that they have offered have already committed to places like Texas and places like that. They have not offered to many kids though."

"I already originally planned to go up to one (summer camp session) before I even went on the visit."

Swanson will now be going on a summer combine tour that will see him make stops at the Under Armour/Scout.com Combine in Dallas next weekend and two Sparq camp stops the two following weekends.
