Mutual Feelings Led Shead to Oklahoma

National Signing Day is here and the crew at Sooners Illustrated has you covered. Throughout the day, we will bring you a variety of material about the upcoming Sooner class. Here is a brief interview with Cedar Hill offensive lineman Adam Shead.

These past couple of weeks has been exciting for Cedar Hill offensive lineman Adam Shead

Last week, Shead lined up with player from across the country on the Team USA squad as they took on the World team. In that game, it was the Americans coming away with 17-0 victory.

Now, that the 2010 National Signing Day has come, the 6-foot-5, 315-pound Shead will get to sign and fax in his letter of intent to play for his chosen school Oklahoma.

"Really, there are so many things that went into my decision to commit to Oklahoma. I just enjoy myself so much while I am there," Shead said. "The coaches made me feel at home. It was just the place to be."

Interestingly enough, there are plenty other places that wanted to be that "place" for Shead. The list is long and it includes national powers like LSU, Oregon, Miami, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.

Shead will be the first to admit that Oklahoma was not first in line in the early stages of recruiting. But it didn't take long for the Sooners to not only make the list, but also be the list.

"My first year in recruiting I did not even know that Oklahoma was even interested in me," Shead said. "But that was a school that I did want to hear from and know more about them. And that's what is cool about it, I wanted them and they wanted to me. Once all of that happened, I called coach (James) Patton and said I'll commit."

Shead's letter of intent has already been faxed in for Wednesday.
