What coach(s) offered you, and when?
TB: Coach (David) Gilbertson and it was about 7 or 8 last night (2/9/17).
What do you know about the Ducks program and new staff? What would you like to learn more about?
TB: I know that Coach T (Willie Taggart) came from USF, and had those guys playing at a very high level, the program was all about speed. I liked watching Kenjon Barner and the spread that Chip Kelly and his fast paced offense. I have not been able to study new Coach Taggart offence just yet. Like to know where I would potentially fit in the offence slants, posts, etc.
Is distance a factor for you and your family? Have you been to Oregon before?
TB: I am a military brat; pops is an Air Force Retired, 24 years. I was born in Alaska and lived in Kansas, Florida and Germany for six years, so we are good if the educational system and the program is a good fit for me.
How interested in the Ducks are you?
TB: Very interested, love the Ducks, but have to get to know the staff better and more about living conditions, etc. I have not been to Oregon but hear it's beautiful and top notch facilities hoping to get into The Opening finished second in the Houston Regional, (where) posted the fastest 40 at 4.47.
How many offers do you currently have? Do you have any leaders, any ideas on who will get your five official visits?
TB: Nineteen so far, no leaders, just dating everyone right now, lol. I’ve never been in a position like this, God has opened up the blessings and I don't know what to do but keep working and staying humble. Do not know on the official visits just yet, until we pray and sit down as a family.
