MSU: "They are showing me a lot more interest now than they were. Coach Melvin Smith came by the week before Spring practice started. He wanted to see me do some agility drills and things like that. I am starting to hear a lot more from MSU than I was."
Ole Miss: "They are about the same as they have always been. They are still on top. I am going to their 3 Day Camp in June, and I am hoping to get an offer from them after that camp, at least I hope so. It has been kind of quiet around here lately, as far as Ole Miss goes. Hopefully they will pick it back up."
