How was your visit to Michigan last season?

I love the atmosphere.. I love the fans... I love the facilities. They are very high on my list."

What are your impressions of Coach Amaker?

"Coach Ramsey has been primarily recruiting me, but I really like both he and Coach Amaker."

On a scale of 1-10, how strong would you say Michigan is with you right now.

"I’d say a 7."

Besides Michigan, what are some of the schools you’re hearing from?

"Syracuse, Ohio State, and UNC."

Is there a player in college or the pros that we could compare you to?

"I’d say I’m like Bernard Robinson because we can do everything on the court."

Is distance from home going to be a factor?

"Yeah. One of the reasons I like Michigan is it’s close to home and my Mom."

What position are schools recruiting you for?

"I can play the 2 or be a combo. Basically whatever they want me to do, I’ll do."

We had been hearing since the winter that you had decided to give of football. Why did you make that decision?

"Well, I haven’t actually decided to give it up yet. I’m thinking about giving it up though. They’ve been talking about putting me at QB. I don’t want to play there because our biggest lineman is 6-2 210 lbs. and I’m not trying to get killed. If they let me play receiver I’ll probably play."

What's your 40 time?

"I run a 4.58."

What schools have you heard from for football?

"OSU and Illinois."
