The following information was revealed during our interview with Mr. Hoke:

What is your current height, weight, and forty time? "I am 6' 7", 233, and my best 40 time was a 4.76."

Which position are you being recruited to play on the next level? "Tight end."

What are your strengths on the field? "Probably my ability to use my size and my hands. I have a height advantage, usually, and I try to use that to my advantage."

What are you trying to work on for the next level? "Mainly just my speed. That is pretty much it, speed and strength."

How long have you been starting for Briarwood? "Since the beginning of my sophomore year."

All at tight end? "Actually, I play WR in high school, but I will probably move to TE in college."

How did Briarwood fare on the field last season? "We went 13 - 2 and won the (5A) State Championship."

What were your personal stats for the year? "I had 57 catches for 957 yards and 7 TD's."

Did you garner any awards? "I was named 1st Team All-State at WR, All-Metro, All-County, and All-Mountain."

What are your personal goals for next season? "For our team to win state again, pretty much. I will just do what I can. I do need to get my 40 time down a little bit. That is about it."

Which schools seem the most interested in you, at this point in time? "Lets see, Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Vandy, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Florida, North Carolina, and Duke, and Notre Dame, and Arkansas are the ones I have thought about."

Any early offers? "Just Vandy so far."

You have a busy future schedule; do you not? "Yes sir, my father wants me to narrow it down to five schools by the start of my senior year."

Which five are on the preliminary list? "I really do not know yet."

What will you look at when you are trying to narrow your list? "Academics are pretty important. I want to go to a pretty reputable school. Also, I am interested in how the school uses their TE in the passing game. I like to catch the ball, so that is important for me. I am also looking for the coaches that I work best with, and who can help my game the most."

Have you had a chance to take any Spring unofficial visits yet? "Yes sir, I went up to Vandy. I went to Auburn, Alabama, and Georgia Tech too."

All for Junior Days? "Yes sir."

Did any one school stand out? "Not really, they were all pretty nice."

Where will you camp at this summer? "I am not going to any of the Nike Camps, but that is all that I really know for sure. I will probably go to 3 to 5 Senior camps, but I have not determined which schools I will or will not visit."

Did you take any fall visits? "Yes sir, I went to the Alabama vs Tennessee game, Auburn vs Ole Miss game, and the Auburn vs La Monroe game."

What strikes your interest in Ole Miss? "They just have a great reputation at preparing their tight ends for the pros. They really use their tight ends in their passing game, and that is what I am looking for."

What is your current GPA and ACT test? "I have a 4.36 GPA and a 28 on the ACT."
