Alabama: "I like Coach Napier and I like the atmosphere there. Alabama wins a lot too, so that I like."
Auburn: "Auburn is going to throw the ball a little more and they want to use me in their offense. They can move me around get the ball to me."
LSU: "Some say LSU is on top because of it being closest to home, but I wouldn't say LSU has an edge being the in-state school. It is just a great school and I love the SEC. They know how to win there too."
Oregon: "I like the offense at Oregon. They run the spread and they know how to get guys in space. I saw Travis Waller (Oregon quarterback commit) at The Opening and I like his game too."
Texas A&M: "Kyler Murray is a great quarterback and they run a system like Oregon where they spread people out. I like their coaches too and I know they have a plan for me if I choose them."
