JH: Will you be a point guard in college?
"I think I will play point guard in college. My height probably puts me at the point and that is fine with me. I am not selfish, I like to give my
teammates the ball. I like to do whatever I can to help the team. I averaged 5.7 assist per game this past year."
JH: What schools do you like at this point?

JH: What do you like about Oklahoma?
"I get along with the all the coaches and they have had success with Louisiana players. Hollis Price and Quannas White are both from
Louisiana and both are starting. I saw them play a couple of times in Lake Charles, Louisiana and Coach (Ray) Lopes has talked about them quite a bit. If I went to Oklahoma I would back them up next year and then be in the mix for a starting spot my sophomore season."
JH: OU will have four guards who are seniors next year and then all will graduate. What are you thoughts on so many guards leaving at once at

JH: Do you have favorites at this point?
"Probably Texas A&M and Virginia. Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Virginia are probably my top three schools."
