How many offers do you have?
5 offers. Rutgers, Syracuse, Boston College, Michigan State and Stanford.
You payed a little visit to the Big 10 this past weekend. How was it?
Yes, it went pretty well. I went to Michigan State first and they offered. A day later I went to Michigan and it was nice, but I wasn't offered. I was disappointed about that.
Who are your favorites and what can you say about your Top 5?
My Top 5 are Michigan, Stanford, Boston College, Rutgers, and Ohio State. But after this weekend, I don't have a clear favorite any longer. After this weekend anything is possible.
What are the 3 biggest factors influencing your decision to attend school?
Academics are certainly number one. Football is an important factor - anywhere I can be successful. Playing time is also important, but as long as I can be successful then that's what is most important.
What are your feelings on Rutgers? Did you attend Junior Day?
Yes, I did attend Junior Day. I've seen a couple of schools so far, and from that, Rutgers has by far the best facilities I have seen anywhere. The team is really improving and they're getting really great players to go there, like Mike Teel. Coach Schiano is just great. I am definitely putting more consideration on Rutgers. I mean, Rutgers is a great school.
What camps are you planning to attend?
Ohio State, definitely Rutgers, maybe a couple more.
Do you plan on committing early or do you plan on taking all 5 visits?
I definitely plan on committing before starting my senior season. But I also want to take all my officials before I commit.
