Your total TD's? "I am not sure on that one."

Where are you projected to play on the next level? "I am projected as a wide receiver in college."

What most have you improved on this year? "As a QB, being able to stay in the pocket and being able to manage the game a little more."

Which colleges are you hearing from? "Mainly LSU, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Ole Miss, and Arkansas."

All offers? "All of them except for South Carolina."

Have you set up any official visits? "Not yet."

Been on any unofficial visits? "I have been to LSU unofficially."

You still plan to play both sports on the next level? "Most definitely."

Which colleges have offered you in both sports? "Basically, they have all said my option was open to play baseball."

But who is really recruiting you hard in baseball? "I would probably have to say LSU or Texas A&M, or Ole Miss. The same ones that are really recruiting me hard for football."

What do you like about Ole Miss? "I like their facilities. When I get in there next year, I have a chance to play because they are losing 4 seniors at wide receiver. Just the chance to play and their facilities are what I like most about Ole Miss."

What about Texas A&M? "The same things pretty much. I have not seen their facilities, but I have a chance to play early there, and their coaches are really nice."

What attracts you to LSU? "Their coaches are really nice. They have a real nice environment. They are also looking for some receivers too, so."
