How interested in Oregon are you?

TM: Very interested ... dream school growing up as a kid.

Have you been to Oregon/West Coast before? Will distance be a factor for you and your family?

TM: No sir, I haven't been out there yet, (and distance) not at all. Going where best fits me, a place I can call home away from home.

What is it about the Ducks that you liked as a kid growing up that made them a dream school for you?

TM: When I was kid it was the uniforms and their style of playing fast and up tempo.

TM: I'm a 2018 kid and I'll be an early enrollee in December.

Yes sir, they will be for sure! (If Oregon will get an official visit)

So you will have three years to play three?
