J.T., I understand you made an official visit to Michigan this past weekend?

"Yes sir, I did. It was great. I love the campus and the academics they offer as my recruiting coach at Michigan has connections with ING and that made the visit great. I really want to go to work in that type of field, especially ING."

With two weeks left what is on the plate for you?

"I will make an official to Tennessee this weekend and then I will make a decision about where I will go the following week. I will sit down and look at the pros and cons of all three schools and make a decision later in the week."

You say three schools and you have mentioned Michigan and Tennessee, which college is the third team?

"Georgia Tech. I've made a trip there and I really liked what Georgia Tech has to offer and everything."

When you get into college what will you major in while you are there?

"I want to go into business or some type of sports management."

How about playing time, do you want to play right away or do you foresee a red-shirt year?

"At each of the three schools they had told me I will have the opportunity to start right away if I can go out and prove myself that I can be the starter. The opportunity is there, it's all up to me to take it and make the best of it."

Would you say you have a leader right now?

"Yes sir, you can say Michigan and Tennessee are tied for the top two and Georgia Tech a very close third. Each school has a lot of pros and some cons. It will be a difficult decision but I will sit down with my family and discuss all thee schools and make a decision."


Dale's Take:
Well it seems J.T. has one more week to gather info and then he has a tough decision in front of him, which school to call home for the next four years. The South Carolina native is excited about his future and is ready to get his college career started.
