JUCO DT Talkin' Top Four

Fullerton CC DT <b>Gabe Long</b> is a prospect of interest regarding those programs needing DTs. We caught up with him to get the latest details...<p>

"Right now," Gabe Long said, "My top schools are USC, Oregon State, Oklahoma and Cal. I've taken one official visit and that was to Oregon State (10/31)."

Long on USC: "I like USC a lot. I like Coach Pete Carroll and Coach Oregon. Coach Oregon really had an impression on me. I like his accent. And, Coach Carroll is a humble guy. They made me feel real comfortable when I was there, the whole staff did.

On Oregon State: "Just had an in-home visit from them. Coach Riley was here. And when I took my official visit there, I liked it a whole lot. Since I'm a Cali guy, and used to a lot of traffic, it was different there. But I'm sure I could adapt to it if I went there.

On Oklahoma: "Haven't been in contact with them as much as the other schools. But I think it might pick up a little more soon."

On Cal: "Like, Oklahoma, I haven't had a lot of contact with them. Just a lot of hand-written and inspirational letters."

Asked about his interest in A&M, Long said, "I'm not really looking at them."

Long has 21 units to tackle before he can transfer. He said he plans on knocking that out in the spring and first summer session. He has two years to play two.
