"I run a 4.45. I'm 185 and I'm 5-9."
What position do you play?
Do you have your stats for this year?
"I don't have all the stats, but I know I have two interceptions and a fumble recovery. I also have two touchdowns returning punts."
So you're a punt returner? Are you being recruited as a return man or mainly as a cornerback?
What do you like about playing cornerback?
"It's a challenge. Everybody can't play it. You have to have patience. That's what makes it fun. It's a challenge."
Do you guys play man (coverage) or do you play zone most of the time?
"We play man."
You do? Most high school teams play zone most of the time.
"We play man a lot. I would say in the last game that we played man about 75 % of the time."
That's good. So you will be used to it once you get to college?
So how is recruiting going so far?
"It's going good. The phone calls aren't that nerve racking or anything. Some of the recruiting services call late at night but it's alright. It's a new experience."
What schools have been interested in you so far?
"Auburn, Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Duke, Mississippi State, Minnesota, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest....that's all I can name off the top of my head."
Have you gotten any offers from any of those schools?
"Yes. Wake Forest, Mississippi State, Clemson, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, and Duke."
Who are your favorites right now?
"Auburn, Clemson, and Georgia Tech."
I was talking to your teammate Avery Roberson the other day, and he said that you guys were thinking about going as a package deal. Is that true?
"Yes. That's true. We've been thinking about it."
You said Mississippi State has offered you. Are you interested in them?
What do you like about them?
"I like that you can get an education there and play sports too. I think their defense is good."
What's going to help you decide which school to go too?
"I'll just really put it in God's hands and my mama. We'll talk about it."
How close are you to those guys?
"I would say Nick is kind of like a big brother who is off to college. And I can joke around with Kamau and stuff like that. So, we're cool."
Are you going to take an official visit to Mississippi State?
"Yeah. I don't have any set up yet, but I'm going."
I appreciate your time.
