Kenosha (Wisc.) Bradford safety Trae Waynes drove to Norman, Oklahoma this weekend to check out the Sooners' 27-0 win over Oklahoma State.
The 2011 prospect had visited Oklahoma's campus before, as an invite to the Rivals.com Ultimate 100 camp last summer.
"The game was pretty cool," Waynes said. "The stadium was huge. It was interesting. The most impressive thing about the game was the fan base. I also liked how the Oklahoma coaches interact with the players a lot. At the beginning of the game, they shook every players' hand. That was cool."
Waynes said he had the chance to speak with assistant coach Jay Norvell.
"He grew up in Madison, Wisconsin. I am from the area he recruits. He basically just talked about what the Sooner program is all about."
Waynes arrived in Norman on Friday night, and left shortly after the game.
"We walked around campus before the game," Waynes said. "We checked out the facilities. They were really nice, top notch stuff."
Kenosha Bradford finished the season 11-1, losing to the eventual Division one state champions, Milwaukee Marquette, 35-28 in the third round of the playoffs. Waynes will shift his focus to strength and conditioning this winter, then to the baseball diamond in the spring.
"I'll probably take it easy for awhile, and see if I get some invites to some junior days," Waynes said.
The 6-foot-0 prospect will continue to work on his blazing speed. Waynes ran the fastest 40-time at the Rivals.com Midwest Ultimate 100 camp, a 4.33 on an indoor track.
