How was your visit to MSU?
"It went very well. I got to meet all the coaches, liked the facilities and everybody treated me very nice. I can see how they will change the program around."

Has your opinion of MSU changed after your visit and if so, how?
"Yes sir it did. They are way above all the others now and I expect it to stay that way."

Who was your player host and your thoughts about him?
"My host was Quinton Culberson (a Provine alumnus). I got to hang around him and Darren Williams a lot. We talked about the defense and what was going on with State's defense and how much better it will be. I saw that it worked out for them at State so I think it could work out for me to. I think we could keep that Provine tradition going at State."

Did you meet any other recruits?
"Yes I did, but most of the guys I didn't know. I did know some of State's players already."

Did you commit over the weekend visit to MSU?
"I told them I would wait until I took all my visits. I pretty much know but I won't make any official announcement until I'm through visiting."

What other schools have you officially visited and who's left to visit?
"State was my first official visit. I plan to visit Ole Miss next weekend and then visit Southern Miss after that."
