USC camp? Do you want to play basketball in college too?

What schools beside Oregon/OSU have you been in contact with?
TQ: USC, Washington State, Wyoming recently. I got a couple letters from Washington a while back but not really in contact with them.
Oregon didn't take a TE in the 2016 class; does that factor in when you look at them?

If you could choose a profession beside pro football or basketball, what would be your dream job?
TQ: I do not know. Like I said I don't even know what I'm going to study yet so I'm not sure.
Would you say OSU is the favorite at this point?
TQ: No at this point, I do not have a favorite I think it is really early in the process for me to pick a favorite.
It was great chatting with you, good luck with the rest of your Oly's basketball season! Full disclosure, I grew up in Salem, played Football/Basketball at South Salem, thanks for not holding that against me.
TQ: Alright thank you very much it was great talking to you!
