What are some of the things that attract Tahj to Ole Miss?
"I have never visited there before, but I like Coach (Kim) Dameron. He talks about how good of a fit I would be at LB over there. Coach (Dameron) thinks I would be a good fit because of my speed. He said that is what they are looking for. They want real fast LB's."
What stands out the most about Ole Miss?
"I just like their staff."
What are LSU's positives?
"Coach Peveto said they really need me over there. They are just waiting on me, he said. They think my speed and footwork is real good, and they like how I read the plays."
