Skinny: Strong's scholarship offer from Oklahoma was the first for the talented wide out.
"The Sooners were the first to offer me," Strong said. "I'm getting some mail from Texas but not a lot. I'm going to go to Texas' spring game. I'll get a chance to talk to the coaches some too while I'm there."
With the early offer from the Sooners, can fans expect a quick decision?
"I really don't know. I want to make sure I do the right thing. I don't want to rush into a decision. I'm not going to put a timetable on it. I've always liked Texas since I've grown up here."
Strong will get a chance to improve his talents and show them off for coaches this summer.
"I'm going to the Nike camp at Texas A&M in May. And I'll go to one at Texas during the summer too. We'll see how things go at those before deciding what will happen."
