Malachi, how is your recruiting coming along? "It is fine. I've made 3 visits and have 2 more to go."

Which three schools have you visited and which two are going to be the ones to close out the five you make your visits to? "I've gone to Oregon, Cal (California), and Mississippi (Ole Miss). I am going to Georgia Tech next weekend and I haven't decided which school will get my last visit."

Do you have a time table as to when you want to make that last visit? "I plan on setting it up soon as it is winding down towards signing day."

What does your list of schools look like as of today? "Right now I am looking at six schools. Oregon, Cal, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, UCLA, and Georgia are the top six and the ones I will make my choice from."

I know you are listed that you can play safety, line backer, running back and wide receiver. When you are making your decision, does the position the school recruiting you to play at play a part in deciding which school you want to go to? "Yes sir, I want to play either running back or wide receiver in college. That's my preference"

Of the six schools you listed, what are each one recruiting you to play? Oregon is recruiting me as running back/wide receiver/athlete type player. Cal is recruiting me as a safety. Ole Miss wants me to a running back. Georgia Tech is recruiting me as a running back too. UCLA wants me as a wide receiver and Georgia says they are looking at me as a running back."

Since your next visit is to Georgia Tech, who is recruiting you for Georgia Tech? "Coach Hunter has been recruiting me for Georgia Tech."

What do you plan on majoring in when you get to college? "I am looking at Video Game Technology as my major."

With Georgia Tech being the only school that offers that major, does that give them an advantage? "Yes sir that does give them an advantage over the other school because they do offer what I am looking for in my major."

When do you do plan on making a decision on college? "I plan deciding a little before signing day or on signing day."

Malachi and I have set up a time to talk next week to compare how his visit to Georgia Tech was compared to the other three schools he has already visited. Plus I hope to have the info on which school gets his last visit.
