"It was good. I enjoyed it," commented Jamariey Atterberry.
Was the unofficial visit about what he was
expecting, better or worse?
"It was better. The fans are great at
Ole Miss. They played a good game until late. They are not a bad team. It was
very attractive with all of the fans getting into the game."
watching the ball game, Jamariey had a few observations.
a lot of talent in the secondary. They did a good job. I would have to come in
and work hard and fight for playing time. But I love how they play their CB's.
I noticed in man coverage, they were not in your face and jamming. Jamming is
something that I need to work on. They played loose coverage, so you do not have
to worry about jamming if you play there. I doubt I will play basketball this
year so I can get a little stronger, something I have got to do."
Jamariey get a chance to speak with the Ole Miss coaches?
to Coach Hughes, but I talk to him all of the time. That is nothing new. We talked
a little football, but I talked to his son Jamison Hughes mostly. We keep in touch
all of the time on the phone."
What about the overall atmosphere at
"Ole Miss is the only other place I have been to besides
MSU. The fans at Ole Miss are a lot more loud. They are on their feet the whole
game. When they get down, they are still on their feet. It is a great atmosphere
Ole Miss has a lot of attractive qualities, but Atterberry
remains committed to MSU.
"I am still solid with MSU at the moment.
That is just how I grew up. I always liked MSU. I have talked to Coach Orgeron,
but I have not had a straight up conversation with him, and I talk to Coach Croom
all of the time. I am going to just see how everything goes. Right now, I just
want to focus on my season."
Speaking of the season, how is it going
for Kosciusko and Jamariey?
"It is going good. I have not played much
defense. They are trying to keep me fresh at running back/wide receiver, but I
got in some corner this Friday. I played the whole game on defense."
are his stats for the season?
"I do not know my rushing or receiving
yards. In our first game against N' West Rankin, I returned an interception for
a 36 yard TD. In the game Friday, I had 2 rushing TD's and 3 pass breakups. I
have scored at least a TD in every game."
How would Atterberry rate
"I have been doing a good job, but I have not played as
hard as I can. I could be doing a whole lot better. Last game, I had my best game
because I have been wanting to play cornerback, so it put a spark in me."
attracts Jamariey to corner?
"Just shutting people down. That is what
I am there for."
What would Atterberry like to work on at corner?
so with my techniques. I just need to work on the 1 on 1 stuff, man to man coverage."
