"We are 4-0 on the year and I am off to a great start. We are on our way to the playoffs and right now having a great season. Right now I have 79 carries for 756 yards and nine touchdowns, and I have returned three punts for touchdowns, but all of them have been called back. I am playing free safety on defense and I have one interception, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble thus far. I am also averaging 38-yards per punt and also threw for a touchdown off a bad snap."
"I really think our team has a chance to be great this year. I am trying to really get down with this team, because I think it has enormous potential."

"I still like Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Auburn, Michigan State and Maryland. I don't have a favorite school and I don't know when I will have a favorite. Oklahoma is a pretty good school and a great football program. I talk to Steve Spurrier every week and he is a cool guy. They are going to get a visit from me I can pretty well guarantee that."

"Location doesn't matter to me and I definitely don't mind leaving Florida. I can go anywhere and will go anywhere that I can accomplish my goals. I think I can do that at any big time football program."
