Sam Webb: You mentioned last week that you'd probably be heading up to Michigan for the Iowa game...
Hakeem Flowers: "Yes sir I am. I will be up there in a couple of weeks."
Hakeem Flowers: "No sir I haven't."
Sam Webb: So will Michigan be your first one?
Hakeem Flowers: "Yes it will be."
Sam Webb: Which ones have you taken unofficial visits to?
Hakeem Flowers: "All of them except for Michigan."
Sam Webb: What is it about Michigan that made them make your top five if you haven't even been there before?
Hakeem Flowers: "I just like the coaches recruiting and I have been talking to a couple of players that are being recruited by them and heard a lot of great things about them. So I decided I should maybe try to take a trip up there and see if what they about."
Sam Webb: What other recruits have you talked to about Michigan?
Hakeem Flowers: "Just mainly Avery Walls, who is a defensive back that is being recruited by them also."
Sam Webb: He had a lot of good things to say about the Wolverines?
Hakeem Flowers: "Yes sir."
Sam Webb: Have you been paying attention to how they have been doing this season?
Hakeem Flowers: "Yes sir. I have been watching their offense a little bit and stuff like that. I definitely like the offense and Denard Robinson is a great player. I love watching him play."
Sam Webb: How are things going for you on the football field so far for you this year?
Hakeem Flowers: "Everything is going pretty good right now. We're 5-1 right now and my stats on the season, 25 catches for like 540 something yards and eight touchdowns."
Sam Webb: You obviously started off the year as one of the highest rated receivers in the country. Since then a lot of people are talking about a lot of other guys; do you think you've been flying under the radar a little bit?
Hakeem Flowers: "Yeah I do. I think I have gone under the radar a lot because I have been putting recruiting to the side for a little while and stopped going to camps and stuff like that. I think I'm going up the radar now."
Sam Webb: Give me an update on your height, weight, and 40 time.
Hakeem Flowers: "The last time I ran a 40 was a 4.4. My height is 6'3" and 185."
Sam Webb: I remember when I ran into you and your dad back in January he really seemed to prefer that you get a little further away from home so you could broaden your horizons. Is that still the case?
Hakeem Flowers: "Yes sir. That's pretty much the case."
Sam Webb: So when you get ready to make your decision whenever that is; what are going to be the most significant factors in your choice?
Hakeem Flowers: "Mainly the academics and the school and coaching staff and playing time and stuff like that."
Sam Webb: What is Michigan saying to you about playing time and about how you might fit in there?
Hakeem Flowers: "They really haven't said much to me about playing time. They just said that they pretty much want me to get up there on campus."
Sam Webb: Are your parents going to come up with you?
Hakeem Flowers: "Yes sir."
Sam Webb: When do you think that you are going to make a final decision?
Hakeem Flowers: "I'm not really sure yet. Probably at the end of the season or a little bit after that."
Sam Webb: One last thing. Let's go over your top five real quick and just tell me what you like about each school starting with Georgia Tech.
Hakeem Flowers: "The main thing that I like about Georgia Tech is the way they put receivers in the league. I really like the recruitment and the way they are recruiting me and the way they are getting over here. I also like it is really not that far away from home either."
Sam Webb: What about LSU?
Hakeem Flowers: "Going down there was a great experience. I enjoyed it. I liked the receiver coach and I even enjoyed the defensive coaches. The fans down there are crazy. I enjoyed talking to them. I had a good time."
Sam Webb: Michigan?
Hakeem Flowers: "I like the way they are recruiting me and the way other people talk good about them. I haven't got up there to check them out yet, but I look forward to it."
Sam Webb: UCLA?
Hakeem Flowers: "When I went out to UCLA it was just beautiful. My mom and dad both liked it. The campus was nice and I really like Coach Moore and Coach Neuheisel. I had a great time out there with him. Pretty much hanging out with him the whole time. It was great."
Sam Webb: Oregon?
Hakeem Flowers: "What I like about Oregon is mainly the receivers coach. He is a really nice cool laid back guy. All the coaches out there are kind of cool and nice to be around. It was very atmospheric there."
