Do you start both ways? "Yes sir."
What were your stats as a junior? "I know I recorded 97 tackles. On offense, I did not get those stats."
Did you garner any awards? "Yes sir, I was named Best OL and Best DL from 7th - 11th grade. I have been a Finalist for Mr. Football the last two years, and I have made 1st Team All-State the last two years and 2nd Team All-State as a 9th grader."
Which schools seem to be the most interested in you? "I have three offers from Auburn, Louisville, and Jacksonville State. Ole Miss is looking at me real hard. USM, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and MTSU also call regularly."
Which schools have called in the past week? "MTSU, Ole Miss, USM, Auburn, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Louisville."
Who do you feel like is recruiting you the hardest? "Right now, it is kind of hard. It would be between Louisville and Ole Miss."
Have you attended any college games this fall? "Not yet."
Do you plan to take any unofficial visits? "Yea, that is the plan. I have to set up some officials, and I have to go see some games."
Have you set up any official visits? "Not yet, but I am working on one with Ole Miss right now."
What date are you and Ole Miss working for? "I was suppose to visit them this weekend, but I have to take the ACT test this Saturday, so I am rescheduling it."
Who else would you like to visit? "Alabama, Auburn, Louisville, and either Kentucky or Tennessee. I will visit Ole Miss, Alabama, Louisville, and Auburn for sure."
Which coaches have made a big impact with you? "Probably Coach Witts at Louisville and Coaches Latina and Luke at Ole Miss."
What do you like about Ole Miss? "Right now, from my understanding, they are losing two starting guards. They told me they like to run the ball, and that is what I like to do. I feel like I could fill one of their spots."
What are Louisville's positives? "I really do not know right now. I just like Coach Witts."
And Alabama? "I like their offense. They like to run the ball, and that's what I do. That's my style. They are also close to home. I just like everything about them."
What do you like about Auburn? "Same as Alabama. They are close to home. They like to run the ball. I just like anybody who likes to run the ball. I like that style of offense."
What other factors will be important to you when it comes decision time? "Well, I want to know how many of their football players graduate, first of all. I will also check into their depth chart. Will I be able to come in and play or do they have some returning starters? But mainly, I want to see how well they can educate me."
What is your current academic status? "I do not know my GPA or anything, but I have only missed Honor Roll two times since 9th grade. I have to make A's and B's, or I do not get to play. I have not taken the ACT test yet, but I am taking it this Friday."
