Keller (Texas) Fossil Ridge defensive tackle Chris Perry was scheduled to take his first official visit of the season to Oklahoma this past weekend. The 6-foot-3, 319-pounder made the visit to Norman, but it was an unofficial.
"I was supposed to go, but I don't know why they changed it to an unofficial," he said. "They told my coach, but he never told me. Instead, I went up there for the game. It was a tight game and they are a good team and have a pretty good offense and defense. I think they are getting back to the old Oklahoma that used to compete for championships.
"I did watch the defensive line and it was good. I think I could play there and fit in comfortably. I also liked the atmosphere. The fans were crazy and that was probably the part of the visit that caught my eye over anything."
After the game, Perry talked with Bob Stoops.
"I met with a few of the coaches including coach Stoops and they are cool," he said. "He didn't say too much, but just asked how it's going and he was glad to see me up there."
Perry is working on rescheduling a visit to Oklahoma for December.
In the meantime, the three-star lineman is looking into other schools to visit.
"I'm still planning to take an official to Nebraska on the 24th," he said. "Florida hasn't talked to me in a while, but I'm planning to visit Miami in December. I'm also looking at a few other schools including Notre Dame and Arkansas for trips too. Both of them still have an offer on the table and I know my ACT score is close to getting into Notre Dame.
"I like Notre Dame because they are a sharp team. Coach Weis is an honest coach and I like the education there. It's almost like an Ivy League school. Meanwhile, Arkansas right now is playing great ball. I know they are going to have a whole lot of defensive linemen leaving and I think the coaches there are very good."
Currently Perry maintains he's committed to the Hurricanes still.
"I'm still committed," he said. "That's my school and they have a good athletic program and send a lot of people to the league. They train you to get ready for the next level. I know they're having a down season, but I'm not worried about that."
