The following information was revealed during our interview with Matt Hardrick:

How did Edgewater (6A) do this season? "We went 12 - 2. We lost to Miami Killian in the championship game."

What most did you improve on this year? "I would have to say my pass blocking and coming off the ball quicker. I was much more disciplined too. I did not commit but three penalties all year."

Did your staff keep up with your pancakes? "No sir."

Any awards been given out yet? "Not in Florida."

Have you had any recent inhome visits? "Florida State and Hampton. Ole Miss wants to come in. West Virginia said they were coming too."

Have you set up any official visits? "January 7th, I am going to Florida State. The second weekend, I am going to play in the (Scout.com) All-American bowl. The third weekend in January, I am taking the ACT test. The last weekend in January, I think I am going to Florida. I am not sure yet."

Will you take more than two official visits? "Yea, probably, I just do not know when I can go."

What other schools do you plan to visit? "Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Tennessee."

Where does Ole Miss stand with you? "They want me to come in early and play as a true freshman. I wanted to set up a visit in December, but they had to get a coach. Their new coach is suppose to come see me when the dead period is over. We are going to set up a date when he comes by."

What will be the factors when it comes decision time? "Just the environment. And I want to play as a true freshman. That will be real important. I just need to go to the school that can help me out the most, both academically and on the field."

Matt carries a 2.3 Core GPA and needs a 980 on the SAT to become a full qualifier.
