"I've been to Virginia's JR Day and I feel really comfortable with the program and the staff there. The coaches and the players there are all great, and so is the university itself. They've got a great academic program there and great football program too.
"I think Virginia would be a good program for me. I've spoken with coach (Al) Golden (defensive backs) and he's a real up beat kind of DB coach. I feel I could do well under him--he's real intense and I like how his DBs play ball for him," he said.
"Coach (Phil) Elmassian (defensive backs) from Nebraska has expressed some great interest in me already. He actually told me that they need me to play for them right away as a safety or as a cornerback. It would be good for me to go there because I could get some early playing time.
"They've got a good football tradition there and some good academics. I've never been there, but when the time comes, I'd like to take an official visit there.
"The brochures that the coaches have sent me on Nebraska show the stadium packed with around 60,000 people on game day, all wearing red and white. That all looked really exciting to me. I'm also friends with A.J. Wallace (cornerback) and he was able to make it to an unofficial visit there for their Spring Game.
"He told me that everything there is just really cool and the atmosphere is fun and crazy. I really can't wait to get out there for a visit when I can. I'm trying to work out arranging a trip there this summer, but I'm going to have to wait and see if I can, and if it fits into the schedule with football and everything.
"I'm 50-50 with both schools right now, and I'm really not excluding any other schools that are out there," he said.
"Of the other schools that have offered me so far, I've looked into them somewhat, but this summer I'll really be able to dissect what each school is all about, and the possibilities that are out there for me. Each school has a good chance with me right now.
"I'll be taking a team camp in at Virginia this summer, and I'll probably go to two college camps. I don't know which ones yet," he said.
"I'd like to make a commitment on a school sometime towards the end of the season.
"I haven't really been able to get out to combines because I've got a busy schedule, going to boarding school and all. I want a chance to get out there and show some programs my abilities on a national level. I haven't been invited to it yet, but my dream is to play in the Army All-American game (sponsored by Scout.com) in January," he said.
