"LSU, Alabama and Auburn are my favorites right now."

"Alabama--I like the way they are set up. I like the way they are organized. The way they treated me, they are interested in my academics. Auburn was okay. Only one coach, the wide receiver coach, showed any interest in me."

He wants to study architectural engineering or business in college.
