Any coaches come to see you last week? "Coach Caldwell from Tennessee came. Alabama and LSU came by too. Somebody always pops up."
Do you still feel
solid with your decision to LSU? "Pretty much, but it is not over yet."
Percentage wise, how solid are you? "I would say 85% to 90%."
Will you take any official visits this month? "Yea, I am taking the rest of them. I am going to Tennessee (1/13) and USM (1/20)."
Is Ole Miss out of the picture? "They are pretty much out of it. I did not eliminate them or anything, I just am not excited about what they have to offer."
Have you told Tennessee and USM they are out of it? "No."
What about Alabama? "Well, not totally, but pretty much."
Who is in second place for you? "Probably Tennessee, well, either Tennessee or USM. It would be one of them. I am not sure."
What excites you about Tennessee? "I have not gotten a chance to really look at them, but so far I have not seen anything negative. That is why I am taking my visit, to see what they have to offer."
What about USM? "I already know everything about them. They are a school I am not clueless about. I know Coach Bower real well, personally. I just feel real comfortable with them."
