Kingfisher, Okla. linebacker Curtis Lofton says his relationship with OU linebacker coach Brent…
RECRUITING: Lofton talks about tonight's decision
JH: What factors have gone into your decision? In other words, is it just football stuff, is it academics, emotions or friends and family?
CL: "It has been all of those things that you have mentioned. I have just prayed about it a lot and let my faith play a big role in it. I have made the best decision that I can make for me."
JH: What football program issues went into your decision?
CL: "I have considered who the linebacker coach is and how many players he has sent to the pros. I have looked at the national rank of the defense and how the linebackers are regarded within that ranking. I have looked at the quality of the program overall."
JH: Have you known you decision for a while now? Or have you changed your mind several times since you first came to that decision?
CL: "I made up my mind where I wanted to go when I got back from Miami. I knew when I returned home where I wanted to go. I have changed my mind several times or tried to. But when I get nervous about it I sit back and think hard about it, and I always come back to my main decision."
JH: Did facilities have anything to do with your decision?
CL: "Not really, because I can be comfortable at both schools."
JH: Have you talked to the coaches from either school recently?
CL: "No, I didn't talk to coaches from either school because I didn't want to be influenced in making my decision. I think I should talk to them at least one more time before I make my decision, so I will call coaches from both schools before I announce what I am going to do."
JH: Right now do you know where you want to?
CL: "Yes, I know where I want to go. But I am still looking over all the information I have on both schools so that I haven't missed anything that is important to me."
