You are visiting Northwestern in two weeks. Do you have a list of schools right now?
"Mainly, Dartmouth, Northwestern and Colorado State. Those are the main three right now. They have been showing me the most interest so far. I want to learn about those schools. I like them all and I don't really have a favorite at this point between the three."
You received early admission at Dartmouth, right?
"Yes. That is correct."
Did you get a chance to attend the Minnesota-Colorado State game when they played here?
"No, I did not actually. They offered me a ticket for a home game, but I don't know if I'll be able to make it. I'd like to, but with the schedule I don't know if I can. I like Colorado State a lot. I'm interested in them and they are interested in me."
What positions are the schools looking at you for?
"Anything. Northwestern told me safety or linebacker. Colorado State has not told me at this point. I'd be assuming the same thing, safety or linebacker. Maybe fullback. It all depends."
You're going to Northwestern in two weeks. Have you been up there at all?
"Yes. I've been there twice. I visited in April and talked to the coaches. It was nice to talk to them and know where I stand. I went back to their camp in June for a day and talked to the coaches a little bit again. It was a good experience."
What have they said to you?
"They said keep working, we are still evaluating you. We want to see your game film before we make a decision."
What other camps did you attend?
"I went to Wisconsin for a day and Minnesota for a day.".
