Mike Marry: At Duke I would say it's the academics and the coaching staff. At Iowa State I would say it's the academics, the coaches, and my best friend Leonard Johnson is there. At Mississippi I would say the coaches and the fact that my cousin, Dexter McCluster, plays there. At South Florida, I would say that it's kind of close to home, the coaches, and the recruiting class that they are bringing in.
CSR: Has any of the Iowa State coaching staff been down to see you recently?
MM: Yes, Coach Ash and their new linebackers coach came and saw me on Tuesday. They told me that they think I can come in and play right away next year. They were really nice people.
CSR: What do you think about Iowa State's head coach Paul Rhoads?
MM: He's a nice person and Leonard (Johnson) speaks really highly about him. He came to my school and saw me shortly after the coaching change.
CSR: Have you been talking to Leonard a lot lately?
MM: Yeah, he just told me to make the best decision for myself.
CSR: When do you expect to make your final decision?
MM: Probably in the next day or two.
