"At the University of Oklahoma [is where I'm going to play]," Rodriguez told 97.1 FM The Sports Animal in Tulsa. "It just felt right. It felt like the right thing to do."
Rodriguez, a 6-foot-6, 250-pounder, projects well on both sides of the ball at defensive end and offensive tackle.
He's the 59th ranked defensive end in the country and a three-star prospect.
The athletic specimen recently power cleaned 290 pounds, squatted 335 pounds and benched 245 pounds.
"I mean, those three and Arizona State, those four schools [were my top four]," Rodriguez said.
It truly was a tough decision. He found parts about every school that he liked.
"I just like Tulsa because it's close and really the only reason is Coach Blankenship now," Rodriguez said. "I really liked him."
"I just like the campus and I know a lot of people that go there and we played the [state] championship game there, so it's cool." Rodriguez said about Oklahoma State.
"It was good," Rodriguez said of his trip to ASU. "They were all friendly. It was nice, beautiful campus."
In the end, though, the Sooners just won him over.
"I just like the coaching staff and they work to win," Rodriguez said. "They're all talking to you, not just your coach, the defensive coach, just all the coaches introduce themselves and talk to you and it was a good experience down there."
