Hey Solomon, congrats on Ducks offer, which Coach extended the offer?

ST: Thank you, Coach Joe Salave’a offered me.

Have you talked with the Ducks staff recently?

ST:  I have. Coach Joe and Coach Leavitt mostly, just about football and trying to schedule up a time I can visit.

Do you have a date set to visit? How much interest in the Ducks do you have?

ST: Yes, I have plans to visit soon, no date set just yet! Coach Leavitt is a great experienced coach and I like that.

How many offers do you have currently? Who was latest to offer, any schools standing out?

ST: I have 30 sir. San Jose State and Hawaii are the most recent. No school is standing out yet sir.

In regards to your five official visits, do you have a few schools your confident will get one of your visits?

ST: I am pretty confident that I will visit Ohio State, but the rest, my family and I are discussing.

When you and your family discuss schools, what are some important factors?

ST: They support me on all my decisions, and guide me through everything. Helping me see the pros and cons in every situation. A great support system.

That nice to have! You talked about Coach Leavitt and Joe, what are they like? Coach Leavitt coached some good linebackers in the NFL like Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. Does he talk with you about how he can help you develop, or fit in with his style of defense?

ST: They are both great people, and we mostly talk visiting. Coach Leavitt has coached a few NFL greats, and yes, he does talk developing.

As far as measurable, what is your current height and weight?

ST: 6-3, 220.

What do you do for fun away from football?

ST: I like to play Madden or even chill at the beach when I am not training which is rare.

If you did not play football what is your dream profession?

ST: I want to major in marketing and someday get my MBA.

Thanks for the update.

ST: Thank you sir!
