Talk about your visit to Mississippi State this past weekend.
"It was real nice. I got to meet most of the players. Fred Reid was my host. I had a good time with him. I really liked him."

Who were some of the other MSU players and recruits that you hung out with while you were there?
"Darren Williams, Ray Ray Bivines, Kenny Kern. Omarr (Conner), Quinton McCrary, Donovan Davis, Quinton Groves, Trumaine McBride and Akeem Lofton."

Did you get to meet the coaches?
"Yes sir."

Did you get to meet the wide receiver coach, Guy Holliday?
"Yes sir, I got to talk to him."

What was your impression of him?
"He is a real cool coach. I liked him. He showed me a lot of technique and how to run routes. He got a chance to meet my family and they really liked him."

Did you get to meet Coach Watts, the new offensive coordinator?
"I talked to him, too. He explains some of the sets and formations that we are going to be running on offense. It sounded pretty good. He calls plays that when freshmen come in, they can understand them and won't be confused."

What school do you visit next?
"Ole Miss."

Any other schools after that?
"Southern Miss."

Do you have an order that you rank the schools?
