JH: How is your summer going?

KM: "I worked out a lot and did a lot of running. I did a lot of working out and I am trying to get a little stronger. Every year you want to try to get a little better than the year befor,e and I did that. So my summer was a success."

JH: Did you go to any camps this summer?

KM: "I went down to Georgia for a camp. I did pretty well down there. I got a quick tour of the campus, so it was all good."

JH: What is the latest as far as your recruiting process?

KM: "I am kind of thinking about it, but I am not to sure. I am going on my official visit to Oklahoma (9-2) soon, but after that I am not to sure what I am going to do."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

KM: "They are a great school. I don't know too much about them as far as their academics, but I will learn more about that on my visit. They are a well-coached team and fun to watch. They have a great offense right now and they have some great players coming back like (Adrian) Peterson and some others. I like their offense."

JH: What other schools are you considering?

KM: "I can't really say right now. My coach and I went over a bunch of schools trying to get it down, but right now I am not sure. I am still looking at Virginia Tech a little bit, Florida and a few other schools."

JH: The last time we talked you mentioned that distance might be a factor in your decision and that you didn't want to go too far from home. What are your thoughts now on that that subject?

KM: "I don't want to go around the world or anything. I think Oklahoma is about as far as I want go, but I am not to sure, I guess. Yeah, I think Oklahoma would be about as far as I want to go, but we will see."
