"It was good, real good," added Eddie Foster. "I learned a lot of things about Ole Miss that I did not know from before."
"I did not know they had that good of an Engineering program. I learned about their Fed Ex academic center and all of the fields they carry."
Speaking of academics, the University of Mississippi's academic reputation was different than what he previously heard.
"I think my friends exaggerated about their academics (laugh). They were telling me how bad they are, but it is not like that at all. They have very good grad rates, and they are highly ranked in a lot of fields. That is what these visits are for, to separate the truth from the gospel."
What stood out the most about Ole Miss?
"The players and coaches. The relationship they have is amazing. The players are really close, and they had nothing but good things to say about there coaches. You know how it is, sometimes coaches will tell you anything you want to hear, but the players tell it like it is. And like I said, I did not hear one bad thing about their coaches from all of the players I spoke to, which was a bunch."
Outside of these issues, Ole Miss was about what he was expecting.
"I was not expecting it to be a big city or anything. That does not effect me. It is like a normal college town, like Iowa State. It all revolves around the school and athletics. That is the mindset."
How did the meeting with Coach Nutt go?
"Good, he told me that he enjoyed having me over there,
and that he hopes that I come over there. But he told me that I need to decide
where I really needed to be because he only wants players that really want to
be there. We had a good understanding of each other."
The visit went well enough to put them out in front of the pack.
"I say right now, it would go Ole Miss, Vandy, and then N' Western because I have not visited those two schools yet. I really liked Ole Miss' atmosphere, the players, coaches, just the whole university. It is going to be hard to beat that visit, but I am going into them with an open mind."
