Wearesc: So what schools are you looking at?
Hinds: USC, UCLA and ND
Wearesc: Do you have a leader out of that group?
Hinds: Nah, USC, UCLA and ND are all about even.
Wearesc: Can you give me a few quotes on each school?
Hinds: On SC, I like the coaches and they had a great recruiting class. On ND, I like the education, coach Willingham and my friend going there, Freddie Parrish. On UCLA, a chance to play early, the coaches and academics.
Wearesc: USC was your childhood favorite, yes?
Wearesc: I'm sure you're familiar with the John David Booty situation. Has his announcement to come to SC early affected you one-way or the other?
Hinds: Not really, but I am looking to play early, so it does a little bit.
Wearesc: Have you talked to coach Carroll or coach Chow after JD Booty committed?
Hinds: I talked to coach O, and he said that they still want me, they're still interested and that I just have to compete.
Wearesc: What would you say are your strengths as a QB?
Hinds: Making plays happen with my running and then throwing the ball.
Wearesc: Anything you'd like to work on?
Hinds: Probably being a little more patient in the pocket, instead of doing it on my own.
Wearesc: Is it true that you ran a 10.5 100m?
Wearesc: Do you think you can take state this year?
Hinds: Well, I'm going to definitely try.
Wearesc: With that kind of speed, some might say you would be a great WR prospect. Would you be willing to play WR in college or are you definitely a QB?
Hinds: I'm definitely a QB.
Wearesc: Do you play other sports outside of football?
Hinds: I played basketball. I averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds last season and was all-league.
Wearesc: Any more camps for you this summer?
Hinds: Yeah, I'm gonna go to the Nike camp in Stanford.
Wearesc: But you already went to the Nike camp here. Why another one?
Hinds: When I went to the Nike camp here I hurt my hamstring running the forty and it was hurting when I was doing the workouts so it affected me a little bit.
Wearesc: So you think you can do a better at Stanford?
Hinds: Yeah. I'm also gonna go to the USC three or four day camp, the UCLA one day camp and the ND camp.
Wearesc: When do you think you'll commit?
Hinds: I'm going to take my trips, take at least a few trips, at least two or three trips, so maybe December or January.
