How many offers do you have so far?

Just one, from Northwestern University.

Do you have a top five?

In no particular order, it would be Michigan, Notre Dame, Purdue, Ohio State, and LSU.

Have you made any unofficial visits yet?

I visited the Purdue camp my freshman year, and I'll probably visit them again later on. I also visited Michigan – this last Saturday actually.

What did you think of your visit to Michigan?

It was really good. The coaches and facilities were both really good.

Did you have a favorite team growing up?

It's been Michigan.

Do you plan to attend any Nike Camps?

No. The only camp that I'm going to is the Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana.

What are you looking for in a school?

Location – I don't want to go too far from home. I'd like to have family not too far from campus. And then the coaching staff. Then, as far as academic field, if they're highly ranked in that. Just things like that.

Do you think that you'll decide on a college early or late?

I'm probably going to wait until after my senior year.

How would you describe yourself as a player?

I think I'm pretty good all around…Most people see me, because of my size and stature, as more of a pocket passer. But I think I also surprised a lot of people with my ability to run the ball. So pretty much, there's no major weakness in my game.
