RYAN SCHULER, OT, 6-7, 275, 5.0, SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA:
JH: It is snowing in Oklahoma today, but I bet you are used to that in South Dakota?
RS: "We have a little bit of that going on around here. To be honest it would be nice not to have any for a while. I could go without it for a while."
JH: How did you enjoy your visit to OU?
RS: "It was a good time. Jason White showed me around campus and I kind of got an idea what campus life was all about. I guess I got to learn a little bit more about what the routine of the football team would be in conjunction with the academic schedule."
JH: What did you think of the OU-Texas Tech game?
RS: "I thought the game was awesome and the atmosphere was really a little bit of a surprise how loud and everybody was into the game. I have never really been to a college game before and it was a great experience being at one."
JH: I am sure you watched the offensive line, what is your take on how you will fit in with what OU is doing?
RS: "I think I will be able to do the job. It may take me a little while, but give me a year or so and I think I can help the offense."
JH: How did your season go?
RS: "We ended up 11-2 and lost in our championship game. I played pretty well offensively and I had a great defensive end. I think I went hard every play and I think things went really good."
JH: Are you still a solid commitment to OU?
RS: "Yes, there are no problems with my commitment to OU. However, I am not sure if I will take any other visits or not."
JH: Is there much of a chance that you will take other visits?
RS: "Not too much."
JH: Are you going to play basketball?
RS: "I have decided not to play basketball this year. I just want to lift weights and get as big and strong as I can before I come to OU. I hope to come to OU at 280 or 290 pounds. Every winter I put on some weight and if I really get after the weights I should be able to put on 20 solid pounds or so. I weigh around 260 right now."
