Congrats on the Duck offer!

DB: Thanks my man!

Which coach(s) have you been talking with on the Oregon staff? When did you get the offer?

DB: I have been talking to coach Charles Clark and he offered me last Wednesday on national signing day.

How many offers do you currently have?

DB: I have about 11 offers.

How interested in the Ducks are you?

DB: I am very interested in the Ducks. I have not visited yet but I am looking to make a visit come this spring.

Have you visited Oregon/West Coast before? How big of a factor is distance for you and your family?

DB: Distance does not matter as long as I can go somewhere that is best fit for me and can help me take my game to the next level.

What is it about the Ducks that has your interest, how much do you know about the program?

DB: I know Oregon is a great program. What has my interest is my relationship with the DB Coach Charles Clark; he recruited me at Colorado and is continuing to recruit me. I also like what he does with his DB's that helps them to prepare for the next level. They also have the best gear! Oregon is a team known for speed and quickness and I definitely bring that to the table in my game.

What your current height and weight? What weight would you lie to play at in college?

DB: 5-11, 175, I would like to get up to 185 or 190.

Do you have a current college or pro CB you look up to?

DB: Darrelle Revis.

What you think of the Super Bowl last night?

DB: I think DB's were a big factor in the outcome. Falcons lacked in coverage and Tom Brady picked them apart. Good game though.

Do you have any official visit set up, or a list of schools your confident will get an official visit?

DB: I do not have my visits set up yet but I will figure that out soon. I definitely would like to take one to Oregon.

What do you like to do for fun or to relax away from football?

DB: Swim, bowling, and play PlayStation.

Thanks for your time

DB: No problem.
