"Right now South Carolina is my favorite. I am considering verbal ling to them early."
On games so far
" I was injured and had an ankle injury in the beginning of the year. I injured it again a couple of games after that. I only played four games. In my first game I have 7 catches for 125 yards and 3 touchdowns. My overall stats weren't that great due to the injuries but I am all healed up right now."
"I took an official to South Carolina. I liked it a lot. I went with my parents. I saw their team play, they need receivers, they are recruiting four receivers and looking for two to play early. I am also taking visits to Pittsburgh (12/6/02), Boston College (1/17/03) and Maryland (1/3/03)., I probably won't take a fifth visit. Right now I am leaning towards South Carolina and might verbal to them early."
