JH: Did you commit to OU this weekend?
JW: "Yes sir, I sure did."
JH: What was it about the trip that sold you on the Sooners?

JH: Who showed you around at OU?
JW: "Bubba Moses and we had a great time. We toured the campus, went out to eat and went to the WWF wrestling match. We also went to the basketball game and just had a good time."
JH: How will you fit in at defensive end?
JW: "It fits right and I like how the defensive ends come off the line of scrimmage."
JH: Who did you choose the Sooners over?
JW: "My choices came down to OU and Iowa State. I also considered Texas, Nebraska and UCLA."
JH: What were your stats this year?
JW: "I was named the defensive player of the year in Houston. I think I had 60 tackles and 17 sacks."
