when they look at me. They are thinking, 'this boy is too big to run around me',
and then boom, I use my speed and quickness to get around them. And if they are
quick, I use my strength to bull rush them. I would like to think my game is pretty
versatile," added the always colorful D'Angelo

"I am just trying to take my team the furthest we have been
since Michael Hicks and them were here. They
got to the third round, so we have to at least get to the fourth round."
Angelo has lined up official visits to Illinois (10/6), South Carolina (9/8),
and USC (10/13) so far. Who else is under consideration?
"I am talking

one could go to Georgia Tech. I am not sure yet. I have not decided."

Tech - "I know a couple of the players they have committed. I am just
looking into it."
- "Coach Spurrier. He has proven he can win too."
Miss - "Mike (Michael Hicks) is my boy. They also signed another
partner of mine, Jamal Harvey. Both of them said

all of those USC cats. It just might be a good place for me. I do not know. I
will see when I go take my visit."
