What are your weaknesses? "I just need to get stronger. That is basically what I am lacking, upper body strength. My lower body is real strong, but I need some work up top."

What is it going to come down to, when you decide to visit either Oklahoma State or Ole Miss? "Just how I feel. Which ever coach entices me the best."

When was the last time Ole Miss contacted you? "They have not called me since the new coaches got there."

Who is recruiting you the hardest? "South Florida."

What do you most like about South Florida? "They are right there in my home town. My mom is sick, so I would be able to be with her."

Is it safe to say that South Florida is your most likely destination? "Yes sir."

Do you have any inhome visits lined up? "Coach Bob Pruitt (Marshall) came by this morning. I was suppose to visit them this weekend, but I backed out. South Florida's head coach is coming by on Monday."

What will you looking at when it comes decision time? "Just, what they have coming back. How much time I will be looking at. What type of offense they run."

Ric is a May graduate.
