Are The Ducks Hip To Hopkins?
Do you currently hold an offer from Oregon?
Have you had any contact with Oregon?
"Other than letters, not really."
What is your overall interest in Oregon at this point?
"I've always been interested. I've watched them...been drawn to them because of the way they play and where the play. I've been there (Oregon) before and I like it there."
When did you visit Oregon?
"I didn't visit the school, I just went up there for family and stuff. I like the environment and what not."
What is it about Oregon that captures your attention the most?
"Their football program, in general. I've watched them for a while, I like the way they play and I like their running game. I like the backs they have."
How would you describe yourself as a player?
"Definitely a player who gets the tough yardage and when you put me in tough situations, I can deliver...running downhill and delivering blows and not taking hits."
Would you compare yourself to anyone at the collegiate or professional level?
"I think I run similar to a Donald Brown at UConn, but other than that, not really."
What are you looking for in a program?
"First of all, it's got to be a good school in general...how they're doing in academics and all that, then it would have to be the program strength."
What offers do you currently hold from other schools?
"Yeah I have four. I have one from SMU. I have one from Texas A&M. I have one from Stanford and I have one from KU (Kansas)...the Stanford one, I talked to their coach and he said he'd fax me the paper." *Note: Since Stephen and I spoke, he received an offer from Michigan.
Is anyone leading at this point?
"I'm just seeing what happens right now. All the schools that have offered me right now, I'm pretty interested in...so I'll probably visit them and see what's going on there."
If Oregon were to offer you, where would they stand among that group?
"They would be right up there with them, at least because I've always liked them and I've been getting mail from them forever now."
Are you planning on going to any camps later this spring or in the summer?
"I'm going to the Nike camp."
Are you planning on attending any Junior Days?
"I've been to [Texas] A&M's Junior Day. I've been to Nebraska's Junior Day. I've been to SMU's Junior Day and I [went] to Baylor's Junior Day."
