One of the top prospects in the nation and FSU commit, Mario Edwards, visited the OU campus yesterday. Here's what the FSU legacy had to say about his visit to Norman, Oklahoma.
Here are a few snip-its about his visit. For the full school head on over to SoonerScoop.com ($).
Mario's thoughts about OU:
"Man, they work, there is a reason they are the No. 1 team in the country, they have a program and a coaching staff and I know Bob has been there for 13 years, and he has had that philosophy in place," he said. "They are in a great situation, they can pick from the best players in Oklahoma, and come recruit the best players in Texas."
While Edwards is currently committed to FSU, he didn't sense any pressure from the Sooner staff:
"There was no pressure at all, they didn't pressure the situation, just wanted to see how they did things."
At the end of the day his mind didn't change, but can the Sooners expect another visit from the top-ranked DE?
"We're definitely going to come back and watch them play. It makes no sense to not come watch the No. 1 team in the country, and it makes no sense not to come back....we're definitely going to come back and watch a game... We love good football and it makes no sense not to come back and see them play."
Though Edwards plans to follow in his father's footsteps with his commitment to play at FSU, it's obvious that Mario hasn't ruled OU out -- completely. And while many fans still see Edwards as an FSU lock, it's always important to remember that the mind of a teenager is always subject to change. I mean, why travel halfway across the county to play football for storied program when you can travel 2 hours north of the Red River to play football for--another--storied program that is closer to home. As Sooner fans, we can only sit and watch.
