The following information was revealed during our interview with Jared Koon:

How are you holding up? "It is tough. I just left the waking of one of my best friends. It is tough."

You stated that you were going to let Coach Bianco know by Tuesday night of your decision; where do you stand? "I have not had a chance to talk to anyone today. Coach McDonnell and I had a good talk last night. We talked for about an hour and half. We just had a good talk. Ole Miss is still a strong consideration. There are a bunch of pros with both schools. I am thinking about this real hard. It could be the biggest decision of my life. It will probably be at least Thursday before I finalize everything."

Which school wants you the most, in your opinion? "Ole Miss came on me first and put the offer on the table. They have been keeping up with me ever since. They have been going to my games. Coaches McDonnell and Lake have seen me pitch in a few games. MSU has kept up with me through my coach here at ICC, Rick Collier. They have been going through him. They have been calling him one of two times a week ever since they offered me. At Ole Miss, Coach McDonnell made a good impression with me last night on how much he wants me. It definitely feels good to know someone wants me that much."

Which way are you leaning? "It has changed some, it is probably 50/50 now. I was thinking MSU, but now, well, I will just leave it that it is 50/50 right now."
