Chat leftovers: Recruiting battles with USC
Here are a few highlights from the chat:
Derrin (Plano, TX): Now that OU and Justin Manning are now "on the same page". Will the defensive tackle make his commitment sooner rather than later?
Bob Przybylo: No, not at this time. Manning just came back from LSU's junior day, and he seems pretty content to wait. He has mentioned waiting until December. I have no idea if he can last that long, but the Sooners need to show constant interest in Manning. Do not want him to be one that gets away.
Bob Przybylo: Pretty good on both fronts and actually better with Browne than for Mathis. Nebraska is a big-time player, too, for Mathis and his cousin, Su'a Cravens. Mathis does want to visit OU in the summer so don't rule him out. Browne's relationship with Josh Heupel is really good and only got better from the visit.
Jose (El Paso, TX): Who do you feel will be stepping up for the wide receivers this year?
Bob Przybylo: I'm one of the frontrunners for the Kameel Jackson bandwagon. Loved what I saw late last year, and simply got that feeling he's gonna be a name to remember. As for the 2012 stellar group, I don't think there's a thing Durron Neal cannot do on a football field.
Lon Kruger (Norman, OK): Who's the biggest sleeper recruit in the state this year and can I sign him?
Bob Przybylo: A couple of weeks ago would have said the 2012 in-state class is done. However, it will be interesting to see what happens at Tulsa and the coaching change there. PF Dre Wright (Lawton, Okla./Eisenhower) would be a huge 'get' if he were to leave Tulsa. Wright improved immensely in his senior season.
