How is the off-season going?
It is just getting started but its going great. I have been feeling great, lifting alot, eating and continually working on my passing.
Have you taken any visits?
Are you hearing from Maryland?
Yea, they are keeping in touch with me. I hope to schedule a visit with them soon. I have been communicating with Coach Edsall, he seems to remain interested in me. I know him from my UCONN camp days as an 8th/9th grader.
Who do you talk to at Maryland and what is your impression of the coaching staff?
Coach Edsall, Coach Powell (running backs coach), and Coach Crowton (offensive coordinator). Right now its the quiet period, but they told me before that that they want me to come to a camp in the Spring.
I always liked Coach Edsall, he recruited Scott Lutrus from Brookfield and always knew my name when I would visit him at camp. It was a tough season for the Terps, but I would be honored to play there.
Did you follow the Terps this season?
Yea, It was a tough season for the Terps, but I would be honored to play there.
What do you think of Maryland?
I feel like I fit into their offense perfectly, we run many of the same plays and formations. I know they have some good younger quarterback but they also have a need for a quarterback in each class they explained. They have an offer out to some other 2013 quarterbacks, but I feel that I am in the top tier for their recruiting.
Has Maryland offered you?
No, not yet, but I feel good about it coming this Spring. They are still doing their evaluations, they want to see me in person so I need to get down there soon. I am hoping Caoch Crowton or Coach Edsall might come visit as well.
How strong is your interest in the Terps? What schools are you hearing from?
They are in my top 10 and perhaps my top 5. I have South Carolina, UCONN, NC State, Maryland, Northwestern, Penn State, Michigan State, Illinois (although Caoch Zook was recruiting me so they have fallen from my list), Vanderbilt, Duke, Wake Forest, Indiana, UNC, Kentucky, Tulsa, and Temple as the most active.
I really like the Maryland offense, I think in a year or more they will really be very good. Coach Edsall knows how to win and develop a program, being his first year, it is natural for some changes and development.
The fan base at Maryland is very loyal so for me College Park has a lot to offer.
What are you looking to major in?
I want to major in History, and I think the History department at Maryland is great, the region has so much to do and exciting things to see.
What were your stats this year?
I threw for 1,340 yards and 12 touchdowns. I also rushed for 200 yards and scored two more touchdowns. On defense I played safety and had six tackles and three interceptions.
