Robert said that it is improtant to see the schools up close and personal.

"We are trying to see some schools. He has to be there for five years. This is our first time in Minnesota. We feel something with Coach (Tim) Brewster. He obviously has got something special going. Minnesota is a great place. It has been a crazy week. He graduated Thursday and was on a flight from LA Friday to Minnesota."

Robert said that they are looking forward to their visit at Boise State Sunday.

"They were 14-0, which is an incredible feat in today's sports. They beat some good teams. I still have their Fiesta Bowl win over Oklahoma on TiVo."

Scott has already visited Arizona, Arizona State and California.

Robert said that a college decision could be coming soon.

"In the next week or so, I'm hoping. We have a lot going on and he has summer school."

Robert said that his son is working hard on sppeed training.

"He ran a 4.58 at the Home Depot Center and his goal is to run a 4.5 before the season. He ran track this year and lost 10 pounds during the season. He also competed in the long jump and triple jump."
