How did it feel to win the state championship?

"The world. It is what every high school player dreams about. You grow up in little league dreaming about winning a state championship and then we did it. It feels awesome."

How did Louisville treat the championship game?

Who is recruiting the junior standout?

"I get a lot of letters. Ole Miss is recruiting me the hardest without a doubt. Mississippi State came by my school last week. Tennessee, LSU and Alabama are sending me a lot of stuff and have been in contact lately. North Carolina and Virginia have been sending a lot of stuff, but honestly, Ole Miss is the main school."

Did you go to Ole Miss today?

"Yes. I went to Ole Miss with my uncle. It was great. I spent the day talking with Coach Nutt. I can not tell you how impressed I was with Coach Nutt. I can see why he has won so much. We mainly talked football, but he kept it light."

Did you have a lot of questions for Coach Nutt?

"Yes I did, but he answered them all. I just sat back and listened to him and he did a great job of explaining everything to me. I didn't ask that much; I just listened."

Did you discuss the type of offense Coach Nutt will run next year?

"They want to go to the spread. They think I'll fit in nicely."

Have you enjoyed meeting the new staff?

"Yes, Coach Nutt is a real cool guy. I like him a lot."

Were you offered a scholarship today?

"Coach Nutt and I discussed a lot of different things today. I told him I would keep our conversation private. I will just say that I am very happy with the way my visit went today, and I think Coach Nutt would be a heck of a coach to play for."
