Has Michigan been in your school this spring?

"Not yet. Coach Campbell will be here this week."

Has Michigan offered you a scholarship?

"Yes sir. Coach Campbell offered me over the phone."

Do you have an interest in Michigan?

"Yes I do. Michigan is a winning school, and it's a program where they care for their players."

Who else has offered you?

"Virginia and Virginia Tech, Maryland, North Carolina and East Carolina, Pitt and Penn State, Syracuse, and West Virginia."

We watched you at the Virginia Nike. What were your stats there?

"I measured 6-4, 257 lbs., and I ran a 4.6 sec. 40."

Do you plan to attend any summer camps?

"I'm going to try to get to some summer camps, but I don't know which ones yet."

Do you have a list of favorites? A Top 3, or Top 5?

"No, I don't have a list of favorites yet."

We see you played safety as well as quarterback last year. What position are you being recruited for?

"Colleges all talk to me about quarterback, but I can play different positions. So I prefer quarterback, but I'll play anywhere I can get on the field."

Your mom told us Saturday you were at a track meet this past weekend?

"Yes. I do two events, the 200 meters and the shot put."
