Jersey WR Has Oregon On His Mind
Have you had any contact with Oregon?
"They send a lot of mail, so I just read the mail that they send."
How often do you receive mail from Oregon?
"Everyday. Everyday something different comes, or every other day."
What would you say your overall interest is in Oregon right now?
"I really like Oregon. My coaches tell me like, "Oh it's too far [away]", but I would go there. It's a nice school. Right now, I'm just reading the mail that comes talking about the facilities. They say the facilities are really nice and everything and I know they have the Nike [affiliation]."
Is there anything about Oregon that really captures your attention?
"I watch them and I like the way they play football too. [I like] the football program, not just the facilities."
How would you describe yourself as a player?
"I'd say a receiver who tries to catch everything. I try to catch good passes thrown to me, I try to run good routes...I practice routes a lot."
Would you compare yourself to anyone at the collegiate or professional level?
"Some people compare me to some NFL players, [but] I really don't know...Larry [Fitzgerald], I've been compared to him and I've been compared to that guy who plays for the Lions, Calvin Johnson"
What are you looking for in a program?
"A family atmosphere, like with the coaches and the players. The school, the academics and like the lifestyle, where the school is located and the surroundings."
Have you given any thought as to what you might want to major in when you get to college?
"Business and Management."
What offers do you currently hold from other schools?
"I have [official offers from] Pittsburgh, UConn, Syracuse, Duke, Arizona, Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, and Boston College."
Is there anyone leading at this point?
If Oregon were to offer, where would they stand among some of those teams?
"I don't know really too much about every college, so I would just hold off until I look in to everything."
Are you looking in to attending any camps later this spring or in the summer?
"Yeah, I told my coach that I wanted to go out to Oregon, to Oregon's camp...I've been wanting to out there to Oregon and Notre Dame and I was going to go south to Georgia and Tennessee."
Are you planning on going to any Junior Days?
"I still have to go to Syracuse and [I went] to UConn's...and [I'm] not sure about any other Junior Days."
