David, how is your high school season coming along?

"We are doing very well. Right now we are 8-0 and our goal is to go undefeated in addition to winning the state title. We hope to be playing all the way up until the Friday after Thanksgiving which would be the state title game. We have really come together as a team and are playing excellent football."

How are you doing on the field?

"I feel I am having a good season which wouldn't be possible without my teammates. I am hoping to get 45 touchdowns on the season and if I get 10 more touchdowns I will get there. Plus I am having a good time playing defensive back too. I really like playing them both."

Which do you prefer to play?

"I really don't care to be honest as long as we can get it done as a team. That's what is important to me."

I know you are a commit to Kentucky, is that a solid commit?

"You can say I am pretty solid to Kentucky. I plan on taking all my official visits still and I just went to South Carolina this past weekend and will be at Georgia Tech this coming up weekend."

How was your trip to South Carolina?

"It was a pretty good visit. I got a chance to talk to talk my position coach, my recruiting coach, and Coach Spurrier as well. Overall I had a good time there.

Is the trip to Georgia Tech going to be a one day trip for just the football game or will you make a weekend out of it?

"I really hope to make a full weekend out of it so I can take in the homecoming festivities in addition to the football game. Plus I want to talk to Coach BJ (Brian Jean-Mary) who is my recruiting coach and Coach Johnson some more. When I was there for spring practice I had a great time and I want to talk more with them."

What is Georgia Tech recruiting you to play?

"Coach Johnson has told me that he wants me as a quarterback and I know that Tech has played four quarterbacks already this season."

If you have a great visit to Georgia Tech could you see yourself reconsidering your commitment to Kentucky?

"Yes sir, I could. I want to make sure I go to the right school. If my visit changes things I will take all my official visits and then make a sound decision. If I change my mind it will be one that I will go public with as soon as I know as I don't want to string along a school. I like Kentucky but I want to be sure."

How would you rank the school that you like the best?

"Right now Kentucky is number one because I am committed to them but Georgia Tech is a strong second and South Carolina is third on my list."

Have you set up any official visits to date?

"I have one set up right now where I am going to Kansas on November 8th. I know I will take officials to Kentucky, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, and I will leave the 5th one open for now."

David as usual was a joy to interview. He was very open about his plans and very honest about what he wants to do as far as his recruiting is concerned. He says he is pretty solid to Kentucky but the Georgia Tech visit could open up his recruitment if the visit goes great. He also showed how much of a team player he is by saying his stats are a tribute to how good his teammates are and how good the team is playing as a whole.
