Oklahoma and Oklahoma State fans have been wondering what in the world Larry Birdine has been thinking. Birdine finally got a chance to answer some of their questions after the Sooner commitment visited Oklahoma State.
"I went up there so that I would have something to compare my visit to Oklahoma to," Birdine said. "I plan to be in Norman this weekend, and see how it compares to Stillwater."
Will the Oklahoma coaches still have an offer for Birdine?
"I talked to coach (Cale) Gundy last night as a matter of fact," he said. "He said they still definitely want me, and like I say I'll be up there this weekend to make sure that's where I want to be."
Most importantly, is he still committed?
"I wanted to be, but when I talked to the coaches they told me if I wanted to take visits I would have to de-commit," he said. "I am still leaning to Oklahoma and unless I see something this weekend that I really don't like that's where I'll end up."
Birdine said his brother, Oklahoma State alum Jason Gildon, hasn't really been pushing him away from Oklahoma because of the school but said he has some personal differences with the coaches.
"He likes the University and the people and all of that kind of stuff," he said. "He was good friends with Julius McMillan, and Julius got in some trouble for reasons that my brother just didn't agree with. I think that to a point Julius wanted to party too much instead of taking care of some of his business. I’m not really like that, so I’m not too worried about that if I went to Oklahoma."
Either way, Birdine has a tough decision ahead of himself – again.
