    What did you like about the camp and what were some things you learned?
    "What I liked about the camp is there wasn't a moment that we weren't moving. I'm a high-motor player who plays non-stop, trying to get everybody else tired. I wanted their coaches to know that I will work hard and try my hardest to do the best that I can."

    What did the MSU coaches say they liked about you?
    "They said I have good feet, a good attitude, a high motor and good size. Both of the coaches that I worked with at the camp told me that they really enjoyed watching me play. (Coach Mullen) also talked to me and said I just needed to gain a little weight but that everything he saw (from me) was outstanding."

    What other camps have you attended and plan on attending?
    "I've been to the Ole Miss camp and a West Alabama quarterback/receivers camp. Memphis and Southern Miss wants me to come to their camps. The Ragin Cajuns of (University of) Louisiana want me to come to one. That's everybody that I have been talking to."

    What schools are showing interest in you right now?
    "Southern Miss, Arkansas State and Louisiana of Lafayette have offered me. Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Troy, Alabama, Memphis, Missouri are others who are recruiting me."
