"The Alabama coaches are staying in close contact with me. Coach Sal [Sunseri] came up to my school last week and talked to my coach. Coach Mac [Jim McElwain] plans on coming up to the school soon as well."

"I recently attended a Nike camp, and I was invited to participate in the Elite 11 Quarterback camp in California. I was the first quarterback invited this year."

"I just want Bama fans to know that I can't wait to put on that crimson and white and start winning championships."
