Symonette says OU a good situation
JH: What did you find out about yourself this week going against some of the best players in the country?
IS: "I found out that my abilities as a player are great. I went against some great guys and they really tested how I was doing, but I felt I was able to hold the guys that I was going up against. Overall, I did a real good job."
"All of us were winners here today. Being out here was the best thing ever. Even though we weren't fortunate to win the ultimate game, we still had fun out here. We know that we did our best. I made a few mistakes, but we feel we did our best and we are still winners."
JH: What was it like playing against all these great players?
IS: "It was great, but it is part of my next step in going to college. Where I go I will see some of these guys again in college. It will be fun to go against guys again that I went against here."
JH: What are you still thinking at this point when it comes to schools?
IS: "I am still looking at OU, Texas A&M, Florida, LSU and Miami. All of these schools are great schools and all of them need o-linemen. The coaching staffs are great, so I am just waiting to see what will happen now that the college football season is over. I want to visit all the schools before I make my final decision."
JH: What are your thoughts on the Sooners at this point?
IS: "I think they are a pretty good school and they really need help on the o-line. Matter of fact our center Roark, is going to be a center at OU. I am really looking into how certain situations are and OU has a good situation for me."
JH: How many visits do you have in January?
IS: "I have two. I am going to Florida on the 13th and then LSU on the 20th."
