Sooner pledge enjoys trip to Norman

San Antonio (Texas) Roosevelt defensive tackle Corey Bennett committed to Oklahoma last spring. The two-star rated player took his official visit to the Norman campus this weekend.
“My visit was great,” the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Bennett said. “I can’t talk enough about everything. I really enjoyed being in Coach Stoops’ office looking at everything he has won. All of the awards and trophies are there. Of course, meeting the players and hanging out with them was great too. Everyone made me feel at home this weekend.”
And that is a good thing since that will be home for the next four or five years.
“There were some other recruits there, but not many” Bennett said. “I was around Quentin Chaney and Roland Martin most of the time. They were really good guys. Q had already committed and Roland got along great with us. We were asking him if he was going to be back this summer with us to get started early on the season and he said that sounded like a good thing. He was talking about being there with us later on in the visit. I don’t think he committed, but I know he is really high on the program and the school.”
Bennett was hosted by defensive end Alonzo Dotson on his visit.
“Alonzo is a real cool guy,” Bennett said. “He is down to earth too. I know I could look up to him when I am there. He showed me around and took me everywhere. He was a lot of help and knew a lot about the program and what to tell someone if they were still trying to decide on what school to pick.”
