What is it that is getting you attention from the schools at such a young age?
"I was at the Alabama Camp and the Rutgers Camp and I did well and that has gotten me a lot of attention. My vertical leap was 30", my broad jump was 9'10", my shuttle run was 4.30, at the the Rex Plex combine I bench pressed 185, six times. I also did a 1.40 in the 10 yard dash."
On what he brings to a team:
"I really enjoy football and I think that I will be able to compete at a higher level. I am still young and have a lot of time to mature."
On summer camps:
"I was at the Alabama Camp this year and in three weeks I'll be at the LSU camp."
""I have seen Rutgers at past camps and on my own with my Dad, unofficially. I really liked it. It would be a good place to go."
What types of things will influence you decision.
"I have already received a lot of info on the schools that I have listed as favorites and those schools are the ones with the types of things I am looking for."
Projected at the next level
"I am a cornerback. I also play safety but I think that I am mainly a cornerback."
Last Season Honors
"I was most valuable player for the freshmen level."
Last Season's Statistics
"I rushed for over 1300 yards I had 19 touchdowns and 3 interceptions."
"In January I was invited to the US Army All American Team in Texas. There is a camp there and I'll be going there next January to complete with many of the top players in the nation."
I got a note that Alabama had him exclusively at corner (with the seniors and juniors); as he demonstrated some very good cover skills, again, as a current frosh.
