What camps have you attended this summer?
"I have gone to Southern Miss and today's Mississippi State."

Do you plan on attending any other camps?
"Yes sir, I have MTSU (Middle Tennessee) tomorrow, LSU, North Carolina and two or three more."

What are you trying to achieve by going to a lot of camps during the summer?
"Really, get recognition and as many offers as I can so I can look at all my options."

What are your thoughts about today's Mississippi State camp?
"It was good. The things they taught me were things that my high school coach was also teaching me. So, it was like a recap."

What colleges are showing interest in you?
"I probably have over 30 schools sending me mail but the top schools that I like are Florida, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Arkansas State, LSU, North Carolina and Memphis."

Have you received any offers?
"I have offers from Arkansas State, Memphis, Western Kentucky and Southern Miss gave me one yesterday."

Are any other schools close to offering based on what you have been told?
"Mississippi State is talking about giving me an offer. When I called them they wanted me to come to their camp so they could evaluate me."
