"I am going up to Oklahoma in the next couple of weeks, so that I can look around. I am still trying to narrow down my top five, but I know that Oklahoma is going to be on that final list. I guess the teams where I camped may be a factor as well. To be honest, I have a lot of confidence in my abilities and I feel I can play anywhere."
