Visits w/ player comments:
Clemson 1/10 - "I love the coaches for the Tigers. Tommy Bowden

like their style - very calm and the kids work hard. I can see that on
TV or if I am at the game."
North Carolina 1/17 - "They are young and the coaches are just like
Troy State 1/24 - "My high school has been going to camp there the past
few years. It's a scrappy school. They work hard. If you go to
sleep on them they will beat you."
"Right now it is Clemson. That's where I feel I can go to pros at."
What are your strengths?
"My major strength is my speed. I'm also really creative. Most
people that play in front of me can't get me because of my quickness. I'm
tricky. It's kind of hard to stop me."
What do you need to improve on?

getting in the weight room and gaining weight and getting stronger."

Growing up in the Atlanta what are the factors that lead you to be such a
good student and good student-athlete?
"The people that are going to make it are the ones that believe in God.
No matter what you do you have to keep the Lord in your life. That really
separates the ones that make it and the ones who don't."
What are your hobbies?
"Going to Church. I'm a real Church going person. I have to keep the
Lord in my life. I also enjoy spend time with my two nephews. They are
going to be bigger than me."
What is going to be the determining factor for your decision?
"The number one thing on my list is I want to go a school that I am going to
graduate from. I want my degree. That's my first priority. Secondly
