Any early leaders? "I committed to Ole Miss yesterday. I called Coach Frank Wilson today and told him that I wanted to be their 1st commitment."
Why did you commit to Ole Miss? "Because I have always dreamed of playing in the SEC. I went on an unofficial visit with my guardian last weekend and loved it. I really liked their campus and coaching staff."

With your commitment coming so early; do you feel solid with your decision? "Yea, I feel like I am going to stick with Ole Miss. My mom has not talked to their coaches yet, but I feel that this is my decision, and I want to be at Ole Miss."
Will you go to any football camps this summer? "I think Ole Miss is holding the Nike camp this year. It was at LSU last year, but I was hurt, so I could not play. I know I will be going to the Nike camp at Ole Miss, but that is all I know for now. I will have to talk it over with my coaches and see what they have to say."
What is your current GPA and ACT score? "I have a 2.7 core GPA. I have not taken the ACT yet, but I am taking it on the (February) 12th."
