"I am leaning real hard towards Ole Miss"
The following information was revealed during our interview with John Jerry:
Did you make it on your visit to Ole Miss? "Yea, it went great man, went great."
Did anyone accompany you? "Just me and my brother (Peria Jerry) went."
What new did you learn about Ole Miss on your trip? "Just how close they are as a family. Coach brings a lot of excitement. That is what they have been lacking. The other coaches did not have that energy."
What most do you like about Ole Miss right now? "It is the closest to home, you know. I want to be right there for my mother if she ever needs anything. It only takes me 20 minutes to get to the crib to Ole Miss' campus. And they run the same defensive line scheme as we do at South Panola. I could catch on quickly if I go there."
Are you being recruited by the new Ole Miss staff as an OL or DL? "He said I could play either way, but he really wants me at defensive tackle, next to Peria (Jerry)."
What else was discussed during your meeting with Coach Orgeron? "Man, just so much, education and academics were the main things. He just wants me to be successful as a person. That is what we mainly talked about."
Where does Ole Miss now stand with you? "I told him I am leaning real hard. He understands that and knows what I am going to do. I told him I am going to wait it out, but he said he knows I am going to be a Rebel."
Who else in the picture for you? "MSU."
Did you every get a chance to take an official visit to State? "I did not get a chance to go on an official, no sir."
What are going to be the factors in your decision? "I already know where I am going. I am just going to wait with my boys, so we can all announce together."
Have you discussed when you, Derek Pegues, and Travis Sanford are going to announce? "Yea, we want to wait until Signing Day to announce, on Wednesday."
Any chance you three are going to the same school? "Yea, I feel it. I really can not see us not playing together, but we all have to be our own man, and do what is best for us."
