"Coach Kiffin from USC came by my school yesterday and talked with my coach and watched some film of me. He told my coach he was very impressed and that he had to talk with the offensive line coach before he could officially offer me a scholarship. I grew up in Reseda until I was 11 years old and followed USC but I didn't know if they would ever notice me. If they offered it would have an impact when I start to get my favorites.

Right now I like USC, Michigan, Iowa, Oklahoma and Michigan State. I'm going to try to attend the USC summer camp but even if I dont make the came I'm going to go see the coaches at both USC and UCLA when I'm in LA this summer. I go out every summer and spend time with family in Simi Valley and Burbank.

I watched USC play a couple times last season and I like the way they run the ball and pass the ball a lot. They do a good job preparing linemen for the NFL. Coach Carroll looks like the a players coach who would get a lot out of you but you could still get along with him.

I only started playing football two years ago because I was always a basketball and baseball player but my teammate (tight end Tony Moeaki, another USC recruit) told me I needed to be out there with him playing football. He's one of the best blocking and receiving tight ends around and his list of scholarship offers shows that. We've talked a little about going to the same school and it would be good if that could happen."
