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
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."
"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."
