"I'm in Florida visiting my grandparents. It is one of those family kind of chilling type things."
What is your situation recruiting-wise?
"Southern Mississippi and Marshall have set up official visits. The other school that was showing interest, Mississippi State, I haven't heard from in about 2 to 3 months. Southern's coach came to my house and talked to my parents. That was a good visit. They don't know what position they want me for. I went to their camp and played tight end and defensive end. This year, I played linebacker. They really don't know where to put me right now. I am going on my visit to Southern on the 25th (of January). I am flying to Marshall on the 18th."
Have any other schools called you recently?
"Yes sir, Vanderbilt called me two weeks ago, but that coach got fired, so I'm not really sure what my situation is with them right now."
Are you leaning to any school right now?
"Yes sir, Southern is looking pretty good right now, but I haven't made a final decision. I really enjoyed Southern whenever I have gone to their camps. It looked really good."
Thanks for your time and have a happy New Year, Chris.
"Thank you, sir. I hope you have a great New Year also."
