What is the latest on your recruitment?

"Right now, everything is pretty much the same. I had not added any new offers yet. The ones I have, I am pretty much considering. It is going well."

What offers do you have right now?

"I have Indiana, Cincinnati, Western Michigan, Northern Illinois and Washington State."

What camps did you have a chance to go to this summer?

"In the summer, I went to Boston College, Wisconsin and the Scout and Rivals combine. I was going to go to more, but I pulled my groin at the Scout combine, so I could not do everything. Therefore, this season I have been starting slow because I am still recovering from a groin injury.

Are you close to 100%?

"I'm still recovering. This is the first week where I had actually had a pretty good week consistently. Due to my groin, during two-a-days, I barely even practiced at times. I'm just happy to be back out there."

Have you planned any visits yet?

"I am going to make some trips. I have not planned anything yet, but I will soon."

Do you have a favorite school yet?

"Everyone is the same, pretty much. I'm open."

What position are teams looking at you the most?

"Athlete right now. A lot of teams are looking at me at defense because of my size. It don't matter to me. Just wherever I can play as a freshman to help the team. That is all I am worried about."

I know that Minnesota had offered you a scholarship, but pulled that when they got a wide receiver commitment. Are you still looking at them at all?

"I'm still looking at them. I'm still kind of talking to them. We're OK."
