RE: Pat Casey Leaving Montana State for Oklahoma!
He was a 4:17 miler in high schooler. I was in the race he ran that in. he went under 4:20 3 times.
He did have offers to go to other schools, but he wanted to stay in Montana.
It's the Olympic year, and with him only having one more year after this, it is time for him to think about himself. He has little big race experience compared to the guys he will be facing. Oklahoma will give him that chance to mature and tune up his skills.
I've raced Casey since the 7th grade, so 9+ years now, and will be saddened to see him go. But it is for his best. He has a shot of making it pro, and he has to hone and tune his skills. He will be a dangerous professional miler/1500m runner.
