"Yes, I'm supposed to tour the engineering department this weekend."
Does that have something to do with your recruitment?
"That has something to do with me changing my schools. I have committed to MSU."
What? You have? I thought you were committed to Alabama.
"I changed it. What happened was Tuesday my parents wanted to talked to Coach Sherrill. He didn't call us; my parents called them. They wanted to know more about the engineering department. He set us up to talk to the Dean of Engineering at MSU. We talked to him and he told us what it would take to major in engineering."
Earlier, you talked about majoring in pharmacy. Obviously, you've changed the field you will be majoring in?
"Yeah, I change my mind a lot. I think engineering is what I want to major in."
How old are you Dezmond?
You are young Dezmond, don't worry about changing your mind. I'm 50 years old and I change my mind about where Mary Ann and I are going to eat. I tell her one thing when we first get in the car and 30 minutes later I say something else.
Have you told Alabama of your decision?
"Yeah, my dad talked to Coach Sparky Woods today and told him.
"Coach Sherrill came by today, along with Coach Watts, and we talked for a while and that was when I made my decision."
You feel like you are pretty firm with this decision?
Thanks for talking to me Dezmond.
"Alright, thank you."
