Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep Four-star Defensive End Tyler Friday on spring evaluation period...

It's been hectic, to be honest. I'm trying to make the right decision to see who's offering what. Just take my time. I'm not really in a rush to make a commitment any time soon. I'm kind of enjoying the process.”

On schools standing out...

I don't really have any standouts but I would say Nebraska is making a big impact right now. Ohio State, Rutgers, the usuals.”

On Nebraska...

I just talked to them today. They came in. They're a great school, and I just want to learn more about them as we go along.”

On Ohio State...

It's a great relationship with them. (Defensive coordinator) Greg Schiano is a great coach as well. I really like the way he goes about himself. He's a great guy.”

On Rutgers...

As of right now everyone is an option. I don't really have a top list, top five or anything like that. Everyone has a chance. They're a big school and they're close to home. They're really family oriented. They offer that family relationship. My fans (from home) can come see me play. My parents can come see me play. It's convenient, I would say. … (My parents) love it. They just want to see them work now. (The staff) has been there for a year or two. I just want to see them get on the right path. That would make things a lot easier for me.”

On Michigan...

It's another great school. Michigan is, you know with that Jersey connection has. I talk to a lot of their guys. Rashan (Gary) is one of those guys I talk to pretty often. It's just a great relationship. In the summer, I'll really take another visit and see what they have to offer.”

On Deciding Factors...

Trust value is a lot for me. I want to be cool with someone I can trust. My mom, my dad, they want me to be comfortable around everyone else. They want to be able to trust everybody around me.”
