Pirsig In No Rush

"I think that the people in my town would like to see me be a Gopher but in the end I will go where it is best for me."

How is recruiting going for you?
"Pretty good I guess it's kind of slowed down now."

Have you had a chance to talk to Minnesota coach Jerry Kill yet?
"Not yet but the recruiting coordinator said I can expect to hear from him soon."

I know it's early in the process for you.... but do you have a list of schools you're going to look hard at?
"Yeah, definitely Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Probably Nebraska too."

Do you feel any pull to go to Minnesota being that you are from the state or would you choose Wisconsin or Iowa if they were a good fit?
"I think that the people in my town would like to see me be a Gopher but in the end I will go where it is best for me."

What are you looking for in the school you ultimately choose?
"The football program for sure and then all of the little things like dorms and campus itself. I want a small campus that isn't in the mix of all of the business of a large town because I live in a small town of only 3,500 people."

Do you plan on taking the process slow or finding a school and committing.
"Yeah there is no way that I could possibly make a decision now. I will have to see what every school has to offer."
