Visits w/ player comments:
North Carolina 12/6  - "I had a great time.  It was fun." Clemson 1/10  - "It's on their big weekend."
Georgia 1/17 - "I feel same way about Georgia (as North Carolina.)  I hear Athens is a great college town, but I think I am pretty much done as far as  where I want to go."  
Why did you choose to commit to the Tigers? "Everybody knows I am an athlete and I wanted to play quarterback.  That was a big part of my decision.  Clemson was actually the first school that came to me as a quarterback. Early in the year other schools wanted me as a DB and when they came to see me play they started to change their thought process on me.  That is when my recruiting process really started to pick back up again as a quarterback.  But hey I committed somewhere and that is where I am going to be. Since I shook Coach Bowden's and Coach O'Cain's hand I knew that is where I wanted to be." What are some things you need to improve on? "I just need to improve on being a better quarterback. If you want to be the best you got to progress every year and every day make yourself better. I got improve my game everywhere." What are some of your strengths as a quarterback? "Everyone calls me a playmaker. When stuff breaks down I just go. I'm pretty good at reading coverages and taking what the defense gives us. " Do you play any other sports? "Yes I play baseball.  I also played basketball but I am going to take it easy this year and I'm just going play baseball this spring."

What position are you going to be playing for the NC Shrine bowl team? "I am going to be playing running back.  I have never played running back in my life but hey it's a privilege to be on this team so I will do whatever." Any predictions for the Shrine Bowl? "North Carolina 50 South Carolina 0 (laughing)"
