Visits w/ player comments: 


NC State   12/7 -  "It was cool.  They treated us well. 
They have a good education program, but all schools have that.  I think
they are going to have a good program.  Coach Amato looked me in the eye
and said if I didn't want to play early then don't come to NC State.  So
that was a good sign of good coaching and that motivated me a little bit
because I want to play early

Clemson  1/10 -   "I was always a Tiger fan since I was a young
boy.  My brother plays there.  I think Coach Lovett has done a great
job this year.   I think the position they want to put me in I can
fit in real well at and play early.  I think Eric Sampson is no longer on
the team so I think I can jump in the mix real early." 

Georgia   1/17 -  "I think it's a privilege that the #3 team in
the nation wants you to come play for them really bad. That makes me feel
good. They want to come in and play back up or redshirt. I think in a year or
two I could start.  I like Coach Richt. He is a great. I think he is very
religious and cares about the players. Their program is definitely on the
rise." 

South Carolina  1/24 - "Not sure I will take the visit."  - " I
really look up to Coach Holtz.  He has a done a good job making the
Gamecocks into another contender.  I have family relatives that go to USC. 
Coach Strong I think he has left so I'm not sure where I fit in down there.  
I was scheduled to play the rover position."



 


Leaders:


"Right now I would have to say Georgia is a slight leader.  But I think
after this weekend Clemson will probably move up.  It's just I haven't
really been up to Clemson in a while. I haven't spoken to the coaches that much. 
And then after the bowl game it really made me think a lot."
