One of the South's Top PK's Commits to Rebels
The following information was revealed during our interview from Justin Sparks:
Did you commit to Ole Miss? "Yes sir, I did."
When did you commit? "Last night."
Which coach did you commit? "I called Coach Roper because I could not get a hold of Coach Cutcliffe. He went and got Coach Cutcliffe, and then I talked to both of them."
What was their reaction when you told them of the news? "They were real happy and very supportive."
Which coach at Ole Miss was responsible for your commitment? "Coach Roper. He is a real nice guy, real easy to talk to on the phone."
Who would you say came in 2nd place? "North Carolina State."
Which schools offered you a scholarship? "Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and North Carolina State."
Why did you choose Ole Miss? "When I go down there, I just feel real comfortable around their coaches and players. The fans, campus, just the whole atmosphere. And hopefully I will have a good opportunity to play next year."
Are you going to try and recruit some others to join you at Ole Miss? "Well, J.D. Lawhorn was recruiting me. We have been friends since elementary school. Now we are trying to get "Big Mike", Michael Oher, to come with us. He does not really ever say much, but we are trying to work on him."
Do you have any official visits lined up? "I went to North Carolina State on an official visit for their first game. I have not set up mine to Ole Miss yet, but of course I will be visiting them."
Will you take anymore official visits besides Ole Miss? "No sir."
Tell us about your stats for the season so far. "I had a bad night and missed two field goals. I am like 2 - 4 on the season with a long of 41 yards. I am punting for like a 42 yard average, and I have not missed a PAT yet."
Justin carries a 3.4 GPA and a 24 on his ACT test.
