Rutgers - "I like coaching staff, they are good people, you can deal with them, they are nice guys."


West Virginia - "I really like the school. It is a beautiful school, I like the facilities, the stadium and the weight room and I like Coach Herb Hand who is recruiting me"


Virginia - "I like the coach who is recruiting me. They seem to have had a lot of good talent they recruited last year. They got Gordie Sammis this year and if he likes it, I am thinking about going down there. I have heard it is a beautiful campus"


Michigan State - "They are a team that I have liked since I was a kid."


Syracuse - "Great facilities, a winning traditions. The coach that is recruiting me told me that they have had 15 winning seasons in a row and it wouldn't be bad to be a part of that."


"I work really hard. I am usually the first in the weight room and the last one out. I work harder than the next guy."


"I went to the Syracuse camp and the Rutgers camp. At the Rutgers camp I got to work with Coach Susan. I really liked the way he handles the guys, he jokes with the kids but he is still the coach and he has the authority. He handles himself very well.  Everyone got along really well. Coach Schiano was really good with the kids."

What will determine his choice of school:

"I'll discuss it with my mom and my coach. The school will have to have the major I want, have good academics. I'll have to like the coaching staff and know that they are good guys."
