OKorn mulls more visits

John O'Korn committed to Houston in June before his senior season, over offers from North Carolina, UCF and USF.
A lot has changed since then. O'Korn led his team to a Class 7A state title while throwing for 2,552 yards and 22 touchdowns with only four interceptions.
In addition to winning a state title he has picked up offers from Louisville, Syracuse and Wisconsin.
Yet, the three-star quarterback is still firmly committed to Houston. He took his official visit last weekend and as of now it will be his only visit.
But wouldn't another school be a better fit?
"I don't know if there is a better fit out there," he said. "I really like Houston. On my visit I got to meet the new offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, who came from Oklahoma State, so that was cool."
Mississippi State stopped by for an in-home visit as they are looking for one more option if they lose committed quarterback Cord Sandberg to the MLB draft.
Larry Scott from USF plans to stop by to check on him this week. The Bulls were the first school to offer the Pennsylvania transplant.
O'Korn will talk with his mom, as well as St. Thomas Aquinas head coach Rocco Casullo and athletic director George Smith about the possibility of visiting other schools.
But Houston appears to be in great shape for the talented field general.
"I really think all the staff there (Houston) are quality people and the city of Houston will provide me a lot of opportunities in regards to internships and other things. The school offers me a place to grow into the man I want to become," he said.
