USFNation.com: What would you say was the high-point of your visit to South Florida?

Zach Hanson: "Checkin out the facilities and stuff, I was curious to see what they looked like in person. I saw them on line, but I wanted to get a first hand look."

USFN: Having never been to Tampa, was there anything you saw that exceeded your expectations?

"Seeing the Buccaneer stadium was something I didn't expect. When I saw it, it hit me that if I came to USF I'd be playing there every homegame. It's all real nice and brand new."

USFN: Who was your host for the visit and what did you guys do?

"My host was Jake Griffin. On Friday a bunch of us hungout at (Danny) Tolley's house, we went out to eat a couple nights and he kinda took me around town."

USFN: What did you think of the academic side of your visit?

"I liked it a lot, it seemed like the academics were good. They have a lot of pre-med stuff, so that part went good too."

USFN: Overall, how was your first trip to Tampa?

"It was cool. Different from California yet the same. The downtown reminded me a little bit of San Francisco and the rest reminded me of Sacramento."

USFN: What USF coaches did you meet over the weekend?

"I pretty much met the whole staff. I liked Coach Leavitt, he's a different individual! He's a good guy, I liked him a lot. He seems to really love South Florida."

"We talked about me coming there and be a big part of the team."

USFN: What's your final impression of your visit to South Florida?

"South Florida is up there. Right now they are my number one. I gotta see how the Kansas State visit goes down and I'll make my decision on Sunday."
