"I play outside linebacker and I weigh 197. I am 5-11 tall and I run a 4.27 in the 40."
Did you say 4.27?
Who timed you in that?
"I was timed at Jackson State and also on our track."
And both of them were in the 4.2s?
I have you listed as playing free safety, is that not right?
"I play both. I will play free safety in college."
What would you say your strengths are as a player?
"I'm a hard worker and I never give up. They say I'm a hard hitter."
How has your year been going so far?
"It has been going pretty good. I have been doing alright. I have 16 tackles, and a sack and a fumble recovered for a touchdown."
That's good. What kind of recruiting interest have you gotten so far?
"I have gotten calls from Rice and Ole Miss. That's all I've talked to right now."
Do you remember what coaches have talked to you from those schools?
"I've talked to coach McIntyre from Ole Miss and I don't remember who I talked to from Rice."
What schools are you most interested in? Like, who are your top five right now?
"I would say Mississippi State, Rice, Tennessee, West Virginia and that's about it."
I understand you have a buddy you play with named Rickey Wright. Do you plan to go to school together?
"I don't know right now."
We appreciate your time. I hope you have a great year.
