CA defensive tackle looks forward to OM visit
Posted Oct 3, 2007
Jurrell Casey (DT, Long Beach, CA) - Scout.com's #36 nationally rated defensive tackle in the country will take in his first official visit this weekend to the University of Mississippi.
"I am going down there Friday with my folks," added
. "I am looking forward to seeing how their team works together, how hard they play, and how their coaches are."
How did Jurrell become interested in Ole Miss?
"I really do not know too much about Ole Miss. I just started hearing about them last year. But Coach Neilsen (from Ole Miss) came up here last year. He offered me, and we talked about a lot of little things. Last Spring, he brought Coach Orgeron out here and we met. It seems like they have some real cool coaches. They check on me on a day to day basis. They probably check up on me more than anybody else. I am just ready to get to meet the rest of their coaches. If they are as cool as Coaches Neilsen and Orgeron, then I am going to have to really get serious with Ole Miss because those are two really cool dudes."
Does Casey have anymore official visits lined up?
"No, I was suppose to go to Oregon, but I could not make it to their game in time, so I am going to reschedule it for a later date. But that is the only other college I have talked to about visiting."
"Southern Cal, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Arizona, and Oregon have offered me."
Who does Jurrell want to visit besides Oregon and Ole Miss?
"USC, Michigan, and LSU."
What stands out about USC?
"They have a really good program. I have been to a couple of their practices and a bunch of their games. They work hard. I like that. They have some real cool coaches too. Them and Ole Miss probably show me the most love."
Although Michigan has not offered, Casey is interested in their program.
"They have a really good program. I know they have not done well this year, but it is a good program. I also have a teammate of mine,
, who goes to Michigan. He says it is real cool out there."
How interested is Michigan in Jurrell?
"They have shown me a little interest, but not as much as I want them too."
"They have a really good program, and they are #1 in the country this year. I know a couple of people who stay out there so it would be interesting to see what their program is all about."
And LSU's interest in Casey?
"They are showing me a little interest but not as much as the others."
Casey had 104 tackles and 10 sacks as a junior for Polytechnic. Through five games of action, he has collected 48 tackles and 5 sacks. Polytechnic has a bye this Friday and stand at 4-1.
