    Talk about your visit to Mississippi State this weekend.
    "I liked the whole setup at Mississippi State and I liked the head coach, Coach Croom. I had fun on the visit and I'm considering them. My top two choices now are them and Pittsburgh. Minnesota is out of it."

    Was Mississippi State in your top two before you went on your visit?
    "No, because of their coaching situation from last year. Now that I have gone there, it has opened up my eyes."

    What was it about them that made you like them so much?
    "The players, all the players are cool. The coaches, the coaches are cool. And Coach Croom impressed me, too. He seems like he is going to do something there. He used to work in the NFL and everything they do is going to be like the NFL. That's what I like about it."

    The last time we talked, you mentioned that you had visited Minnesota and Pittsburgh. Now you have visited State. Are you going to visit any other schools?
    "I was supposed to go to Ohio State but I cancelled on them because I don't really like them. I'm done."

    Are both schools that you are considering going to have their head coaches come in for in-home visits this week?
    "Yes, Coach Croom and (Pittsburgh) Coach Harris are both coming in."
