Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn took the second of his three official visits this weekend to Oklahoma and said he enjoyed it.
“It was good,” he told SNY.tv. “I’ve been there a lot of times so it was just like home for me because I’ve been there like five times.”
The 5-foot-10 Nairn out of Bel Aire (KS) Sunrise Christian saw the No. 16 Oklahoma football team beat West Virginia, 16-7.
“It was cool,” he said.
Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger imparted how much they want Nairn, who last week tripped to Minnesota.
“They said they need me, they want me to come here and play,” Nairn said. “They want to push the ball and play uptempo basketball and get up on defense and make them turn over the ball. Pressure the ball fullcourt and make them turn the ball over.”
Next up is Indiana on Sept. 20.
“”Yes, sir, I’m really looking forward to that one,” he said.
Nairn said he’s uncertain when he’ll pull the trigger.
“I don’t know yet, I’m not sure,” he said.
