Norman (Okla.) High running back Mossis Madu made his third and final official visit this weekend, tripping out West to UCLA.

"Man, it was great. L.A. is crazy," said Madu. "I had a real good time out there. It gave me a lot to think about and now I'm going to take this week to decide."

Madu said he expects to announce his decision before Christmas, and as soon as this week if all goes according to plan.

"I can't really say I'm leaning anywhere, because all three schools are such great options for me," said Madu.

The three schools in contention are UCLA, Oklahoma and TCU.

"Kahlil Bell was my host and he was real cool to talk to. I'm close with Coach (Eric) Bieniemy and we spent a lot of time talking this weekend. I had talked to Coach (Karl) Dorrell before but this was my first time ever getting to spend time with him," said Madu. "Coach Dorrell is a great person, and very soft-spoken."

Madu had previously visited TCU and Oklahoma and had said that he wanted to possibly visit Central Florida and Tulsa, but now says its going to come from those three schools.

"I'm going to put some thought into it this week and then make my decision by Christmas, and maybe even before that," said Madu. "I need to talk with my family before I make my choice."

Madu, who rose in the running back rankings from unranked to No. 13, finished his senior year with 1,513 yards and 25 touchdowns on the ground and 23 receptions for 250 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

He is in good shape academically, holding a 3.4 GPA and scoring a 19 on the ACT.
