Johnnie, what everyone is saying is that you will be at New Mexico this coming weekend (April 13-14) and Miami next weekend (April 20-21). Is that currently your plan?
Yes, that is right. I will be at Miami next weekend, and New Mexico this weekend.

Which team are you getting the most interest from right now?
Both schools are pushing me hard right now. I am looking for the schools to speak for themselves when I go visit.

Are there any schools you are considering besides the two publicized front runners?
Alabama is one that I'm actually interested in.

Have they offered you a scholarship yet?
No, but I've talked to them. They said they want to try to get me in.

When you take your visit, what will you look for? What do you want to see from these schools?
From a basketball side, I want a school that fits with my style of play, and a school that's going to make the tournament. I want a school looking for a big man.

What other factors are important to you in making a decision, such as academics?
Well, every school has the academics. That's an important part, but I like the basketball part more.

You're going to New Mexico this weekend. If you see something you like there, will you commit to them on the spot?
No, I'm not committing to anyone on the spot.

What is your timetable is for a decision?
Probably about a week after I get back from Miami.
