"Thus far, I really don't have any favorites. I have taken unofficials to both Boston College and Virginia and I liked both of those schools."


What will influence your choice of a college?

"Personally, I would like to go to a school where when I graduate my degree means something and will help me in the future. I want to go to a school where I get along with the coaching staff. I also want to look at how many linebackers that school has brought in the year before."

What is the most important thing that you will bring to a college program?

"The most important thing is my work ethic and my leadership. What I mean by that is that through my work ethic, I lead. I don't scream at other players that they are doing things wrong, I try to lead working hard to get things down and by doing things right."

What are your feelings on Rutgers right now?

"I think that they are a program on the rise. I have met a lot of coaches from there. They seem to be doing things the right way. They have brought in some incredible athletes. It is possible that they could really show something next year."

Will you be taking unofficials to any schools?

"Right now I playing thing day by day. It is just too early for me to decide on that."

Where will you be camping?

"I have sent my application into the Boston College camp and I might do a couple of days at a couple of other camps."


"I am a full qualifier. I have 1170 SAT and GPA of 3.5"
