MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Gulfport (Miss.) Harrison Central cornerback Tito Windham made his way to Montgomery on Monday for the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic, and upon his arrival he accomplished a goal he set several years ago.
"This has been a dream since the seventh grade," Windham said. "When I first heard of this it's been childhood dream and I'm finally making it. It's a great experience."
The 5-foot-10, 181-pound standout does not plan to settle for just arriving in Montgomery, he also plans to make his presence felt.
"They're going to see the best," Windham said. "I still have a lot to prove because I know I'm still underrated for my size and stuff so I'm going to prove them."
In May, Windham gave his commitment to the Oklahoma Sooners. There were several reasons for his choice.
"When they first offered me I found out how they offered me and they offered me off my film, so I was like they haven't even seen me so I guess they really like me," Windham said. "Then when I met the coaches it fell right with it and I want to get away too."
His decision has not kept other programs away though, with Windham mentioning both Florida State and Southern Miss continuing their pursuit. However, he is quick to say there is no reason for the Sooner faithful to worry.
"I'm not thinking twice about it," Windham said. "I might get some offers after the games but I'm still going to Oklahoma."
