What are you looking for in a school Tanner?
"Like a lot of guys I just want to play football. I love the game. I'm looking for a good education also. Rice is a school that seems to offer both."
How is recruiting going for you?
"Its' going okay. I'm attending some Junior Days and will attend some of the combines. I'm planning on going to camp this summer at Rice, North Texas, and Texas A&M. Maybe UTEP too, I get a lot of stuff from them."
Who all are you hearing from?
"I get letters from a lot of the C-USA schools - UTEP, Rice, North Texas, Baylor, TCU, and a lot from the Ivy League and Service Academies."
Do you have a favorite school?
"I grew up liking Texas A&M. I like to hunt and fish and I think I fit in pretty well there. But I'm going to go through the recruiting process and see what happens."
So being from Cedar Park - do you know the Smith brothers who went to Rice?
"Yeah they were both pretty awesome football players at Cedar Park. Everyone knows about them."
