Dale's Take:
Austin was very happy to get an interview. While it is very early for him you could tell that he wants to play in a spread option type offense. He says his style of play is best suited for that type of offense and he wants to see how they look at the college level this season. If any one player is wide open in his recruitment, Austin is that player. He wants to get as much info on the colleges he likes as he can go from there.
