Wearesc: What schools are you looking at right now?

Ryan: ASU, SC, WSU and.maybe UCLA

Wearesc: So do you have offers from all those schools?

Ryan: I do from SC.

Wearesc: So SC is your only offer right now?

Ryan: Well, that I know about. Oh, Tulane has offered me too.

 Wearesc: So can you give me a few quotes on each school starting with SC?

Ryan: Well, I'm impressed with the program, that's all I can really say about SC right now.

Wearesc: OK, what about UCLA?

Ryan: I don't have a whole lot to say about them either, I just don't know that much right now.

Wearesc: Sounds like you don't know a whole lot about the schools on your list at the moment.

Ryan: Well, I do, but I'm not real sure about them yet.

Wearesc: So do you have a leader?

Ryan: If I had to pick right now, It would be ASU.

Wearesc: Why?

Ryan: They have a good academic program, I like the offense, I like their coach and I fit into that school the best.

Wearesc: So have you been there?

Ryan: No, but I've talked to the DB coach.

Wearesc: And you just like him a lot?


Wearesc: Have you been able to talk to any of the coaches from the other schools on your list?

Ryan: Well SC sends me a lot of stuff, but I haven't been able to contact them yet. I've called them, but haven't been able to reach any of them. But they send me a lot of stuff, hand-written.

Wearesc: Is early PT something important to you?

Ryan: Yeah, it is. I want to play.

 Wearesc: At what position are you being recruited?

Ryan: WR.

 Wearesc: Do you also play CB and do you think you could play there in college?

Ryan: Yes, I play CB and it's possible that I would play there in college but WR is my more natural position.

Wearesc: What were your stats last year at WR?

Ryan: I had 106 catches for 1,499 yard and 16 TD's.

Wearesc: Ht, Wt, forty time?

Ryan: 6-1, 170, probably 4.4 or 4.5 I'm not sure which.

Wearesc: What would you say are your strengths as a football player?

Ryan: My athletic ability and my speed.

Wearesc: And your weaknesses, or something that you could work on?

Ryan: Probably my strength.

Wearesc: Do you play any other sports?

Ryan: Yes, Track and Basketball.

Wearesc: What are your events in Track?

Ryan: the 100, 200 and 400. Right now in the 400, I run a 51 out of shape, hopefully I can get it down to 49. In the 100, my best time is around 11 flat. In the 200, 21.4.
