Stats through this season
"This is my best year since I have been there offensively and defensively. I have about 18-20 receptions. I have about 300 plus yards and 3 touchdowns. I have about 50 tackles on defense and one interception. My school is 3-5 and we have a big rivalry game against North Plainfield coming up and we'll get a big effort from everyone."
"Out of all the schools that are recruiting me that is where I'd love to be. I went to junior day last year and from just the little they showed me it is a great school and it is close to home. I also got a good feeling from the coaches.
I didn't see the Miami game. I had SATs. I saw part of it and then I saw the final score and I thought 'what happened' but that game convinced that they can put it together. "
"I haven't set up any official visits but two weeks ago I had an unofficial with UConn. It isn't too far from home and the campus is beautiful. I saw a display of the new stadium and I was impressed. I want to go to a school with good academics, the size of the school doesn't matter. I would like to go someplace where I feel I can fit in with the team."
"Rutgers told me that they may offer. Coach Susan called me before the Miami game. He said he really liked my tape. He told me that they would like me as a free safety. He asked me whether I would like to play safety or wide receiver and I told him both. He laughed but I was serious, I feel that I can do it. He told me that they liked my height and that they were thinking of giving me an offer. They are getting a copy of my transcript and if everything is good, I have a good chance of getting offered. I would definitely accept if offered."
