Where will he camp?

"I just came from UM, This weekend I'll go to Rutgers. On July 18th, I'll go to the University of Florida."

What is the most important thing that he would bring to a college team?

"I try to bring on the field leadership. Some people bring leadership by talking it up. I try to lead by bringing the big play. I also try to encourage the younger players on our team in the huddle. We have some younger players on our team and sometimes I can see that they need confidence and I try to encourage them.."

What will be the most important factors determining his choice of a school?

"I am looking for mainly three things, first the academics, second, is the level of play of the team and, third, is the level of the conference. I'd rather play in the ACC than in the Sun Belt conference, for instance."

Where does he project at the next level?

"Some schools tell me that they want me as a tight end. Miami said that. At the Rutgers camp, I'll play oline and some defensive end."

On Rutgers:

"It is a very, very young team and with young players getting playing time they will get better. They'll take some bumps and bruises but later they'll know how to handle it."


Last Season's Honors

"My season got ended early due to a slightly separated shoulder. When I came back my coach told to just rest it up and play basketball. This will be my first full season of football. I did get an award at the Miami camp. I got the award the "most outstanding effort." I felt good about that since they had 500 players there."
